Brought a pair of Churchill (Museum Craft) out of impulse during sale, but upon receive the good, I didn't regret making the purchase. The shoe leather and construction was of high quality. It is definitely worth the dollar. This is my first purchase with Jonathan Abel, and has subsequently brought another pair.
Decided to go for the museum calf as it is unique compare to the brown and also to ensure that it can be dressed up or down. Black whole cuts would be too formal.
It is very difficult to do a pair of whole cuts right as it is made from a single piece of leather. There are noticeable differences between the left and right pair when the light hits against one of them which shows straight lines along the shoe which were probably due to the leather treatment. It does not look natural as the colors should be when comparing both side by side.
As for the fit, I usually where a UK 7.5/42 but the 41 fits well as recommended.
Overall I am satisfied with my purchase.
