Produced in December 2003. Last 341 is a versatile Main Collection last, with a medium round toe. Regarded as a traditional main collection last, 341 has proven to be an excellent last for both formal business and smart casual wear. Long, but not too long, round but not too round. Established as one of the most widely used lasts in the collection, many would suggest that 341 hosts the perfect balance when buying Crockett & Jones shoes for their English heritage.
It is believed that a Chukka boot has both a sporting and a military heritage. A Chukka boot (or Desert boot) is constructed using three pieces of outer material – Inside Quarter, Outside Quarter and Vamp with low cut leg (but above the ankle) and two to three eyelets. In contrast, a Derby boot is a fully lined, high leg and all together, more substantial boot with variations similar to a Derby shoe. Chukka boots are usually considered unlined, although lined versions are available and they are often regarded as the most comfortable of all styles.
