The finishing on it was not up to par for the price. I couldn't get the laces through the top 3 inlets because it the tongue was sewn to the outside of the shoes. They were comfortable and the size was perfect but I couldn't justify keeping the shoes with the tongue stuck like that.

I have other J&M shoes that ran large but these are true to size. They were quite comfortable right out of the box which, was unexpected as this type of show usually requires a long time to break in. Overall I am very pleased.

Shoes were (are) stiff but comfortable out of the box. By themselves The burgundy is really dark, almost to the point where they look black, but when worn they really look good. Very sharp looking shoes.

J&M's very traditional cap toe oxford. Very handsome design that can scale across a pretty wide range of outfits and formalities, esp. if you get it in burgundy, which to me is ever so slightly more playful compared to the traditional black. Functionally, these are very comfortable dress shoes, with cork midsoles and a Goodyear welt (for easily replaceable sole). A few oddities though: the leather feels unusually stiff and a bit plasticky, even after breaking in. Also, the leather has a weird shine to it that I've never seen before. If I had to hazard a guess I would say that J&M invented some sort of lacquer coating to disguise lower grade leather, but that is just a guess. Aesthetically I normally like an extra bit of a shine so it does not bother me, but YMMV. It doesn't seem to protect the shoe much though, as it is very easy to scratch through the coloring and expose the different-colored layer below. Also, regarding the leather, there is a significant amount of creasing that appeared after just one wear, and in my particular case, shine out to two different shades of burgundy even though I polish them identically. Strange, but not a huge deal. Finally, and this actually IS kind of annoying, as others have mentioned, one side of the tongue is stitched to the inside of the shoe, which makes it sit slightly asymmetrically and makes it very difficult to thread laces through one of the holes. All those anal details said though, the Melton is a comfortable, good-looking shoe that I'd buy again, perhaps in the more casual brown, though probably not at MSRP. If you can knock off the price though, it's definitely a great buy.
