Looks extremely sharp, the underlying polish is complex and attractive. Shoe itself is comfortable even before wearing in the leather. I personally think laces could be made thicker for more non slip knots. Easy for laces to come undone without a double knot.
I went to the shoe salon at Takashimaya to try out the size and colour. The staff there provided great service. Glad I went with tan instead of chocolate.
Good shoes. I love the color and design of the shoes. It would be good if there are variations and hybrids of the shoes. For those who like business and casual can a choice of business casual and casual sporty or a variation of both.
Good. Just what all shoes need to maintain it’s shape and allow the shape to be expended for users comfort. A must have for all shoes especially new shoes.
For the young and young at heart. This is crazily fun to be seen in.
Another pair of timeless classic looking socks. Fantastic.
Works well with different colours of leather. Overall, a good complementary product with the other shoe care products like mink oil and leather balm cleaner.
Very versatile pair of socks. More importantly, comfortable.
The Matthew is my 2nd pair. I usually do not fit well in monks, but still gave this one a try. I was pleasantly surprised that this model fit perfectly. Went down one full size as usual. The pictures in the listing images do not do this pair justice; I was infact pressed to go for it after seeing the image of these in a banner in their main page. The monks are very well made, with nice proportions. The cap-toe sits perfectly and the toe shape is very well designed. Unfortunately, the pair I received were likely a fitting pair and it seemed to have several scuffs etc. But thankfully, it's on the way to be exchanged so a big thumbs up for JA customer service team.
I use this with the leather balm and they work well together to extend the useful life of my shoes.
Simple and does its job well. This will help keep my shoes in tip top condition for a longer period of time.
The product is effective and easy to apply. No frills, does its job well.
I bought the Dover Austerity during a sale to try out JA and I must say that even at their full price, these are definitely worth it. The uppers feel supple yet hold their shape well. There is absolutely no breaking in and the shoes fit like a glove from the first wear. As per their advice, I went a full size down from my usual size and fitment was perfect. The leathers they're using also seem to come from reputable tanneries so there's no doubt they'll age well. Customer service was fantastic and the shoes were delivered the next day. Overall, a very pleasant experience and I've already ordered my 2nd pair. I will recommend JA to anyone who wants a expertly crafted shoe with good leathers and construction.
This is a solid pair of shoe trees and nicely scented as well. I will be looking to buy another pair.
size run slightly big but overall, very satisfied with the pair. in addition, got it at a bargain of 50% off!!
