Clarks Exton Walk, Men's Derby, Brown (tobacco Leather), 9 UK (43 EU)
Clarks Exton Walk, Men's Derby, Brown (tobacco Leather), 9 UK (43 EU)
Price: £63.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Well made, but flawed..., 6 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very well made shoes, but beware, they're very narrow so think twice if you have broad(ish) feet. The leather out of the box is much lighter than the pics and will darken considerably (and alarmingly) on an application of (neutral) shoe cream. Afterwards, they mark and scuff very easily. Hind sight is a wonderful thing. Would not have bought had I known, so a bit disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best shaving oil in the world. Probably., 11 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have been using a competitor product for many years, but thought I'd give this a try and am greatly impressed. Don't know what the naysayers are doing, but I've found one pump is more than enough, it's thicker than my previous oil, doesn't dry on the skin during a shave, razor glide is excellent and the lavender is clean-smelling, subtle but nice and not too overpowering. Skin feels great afterwards, too.

Can't see me ever switching as this stuff has/does everything I expect in a shave oil. An excellent product that I highly recommend. Will be buying more, but with 250ml to go at I suspect that won't be for a while yet, so good value, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goodbye bath-time nightmares..., 15 April 2016
I have a young Cocker so for a medium sized dog I reckon you'll get a good 3-4 baths out of the 500ml depending on how generous you are or how mucky/smelly your dog is. It's a thin(ish) liquid so I decanted some of the shampoo into a 360ml spray bottle which makes for much easier application with no drips. Needs to be worked vigourously into the coat for lots of suds, leaving the coat clean, soft and smelling great (but not overpowering). One of the main advantages though is no struggling pooch and no wet dog rolling about on the carpets afterwards with a filthy bath to clean - just dump the grubby towel in the wash.

Having never used it before, I had my misgivings. However, this shampoo has proved to be one of the best things since sliced bread. Why anyone would continue to use 'ordinary' dog shampoo when they can use this is beyond understanding.

Not many dog products impress me these days, but this stuff really is the dog's danglies - pun intended. Very highly recommended and will be buying a 6-pack next time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not the best..., 9 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thought I'd give these a try. Not as thick (they're semi-transparent) or as easy to open as my regular ones. Could do without the see through aspect (or the colour if I'm honest - kind of a sickly green). So, it's back to my normal thick opaque ones, I'm afraid. On the plus side, they do come in a nice box!

The Golden Keel
The Golden Keel
by Desmond Bagley
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great..., 15 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Golden Keel (Paperback)
Hate to nit pick and pour cold water on DB's first novel, but some (not all) of the writing is poor. He has trouble with dialogue which is often unconvincing and trite. Characters are probable but ultimately don't really become three dimensional and the love interest is transparent and predictable. There also seems to be too many people willing and able to help the 'hero' with his difficulties.

Not generally a fan of first person novels, but stuck with it till the end as (a) the story is good and the pace held my interest, and (b) willing to forgive a writer finding his writing chops.

With some good editing this could have been a first rate novel. Still, have yet to read more DB so maybe things will improve...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent jacket considering the price..., 13 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A few things to bear in mind, though. The colour (navy) is much lighter than the pictures (more like slate blue), so something to bear in mind. Also jacket branded as 'Greenbelt' not 'Walker and Hawkes', not that it matters. There's also some confusion regarding sizing. Took a chance and the Amazon size guide is the one I used and ordered Large. I'm 40" chest and jacket fits well with room for a fleece or jumper underneath. The size guide in the images is one size too big ie large is shown as 42"-44" but jacket received is more like 40"-42" which ties in with the Amazon sizing. Why do we have to go through all this malarkey and play size roulette?

Jacket itself is well made with a nice weight, a sturdy zip, good popper fastenings and no loose threads. It's quite 'dry' for a waxed jacket and will probably need rewaxing sooner rather than later. The lining is good quality and not the awful thin material found on some jackets. The colour is a bit disappointing (expected dark navy as per pics) but can live with it. Will probably darken anyway when rewaxed before next winter.

Overall, for the price, it deserves five stars as quite impressive considering it costs less than the price of a rewax from the way overpriced main waxed jacket supplier. Time will tell how long it lasts.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect treats, 7 Nov. 2015
Bought these for my Cocker pup to be used as a training jackpot treat breaking them up into 1" pieces. Chomping chews is a bit of a misnomer, he breathes them in - they don't even touch the sides.

This is one of those rare 'must have' products. They are non-greasy, have little smell and the resealable tub keeps them fresh for months. Can't recommend them highly enough. Good value too at just under a tenner. Well done, Davies.
