Why JL fitted shoe trees in these?
They did that on purpose!!!!
About three weeks ago, I received my new Saint Crispins. It is Model 532 FC made on the screwdriver last in dark brown. It is a unique pair, and one of the best SC I have ever owned. I am inserting few pictures for your review. Please, forgive me if these do not include a picture of the soles. I should have taken a picture when the shoes were brand new. For those familiar with SC it was a typical SC sole, with the exception of the nails at the top of the tip, instead of...
I use their MTO services, and I am very satisfied! I have been a customer for the last 5 years. I can say that it is comparable to Ede & Ravenscroft in terms of craftmanship, and quality of construction.

All the...

It might be more of a stretch if people said you should get a new carpet or...

I notice you're in Washington DC, which is not exactly a shoe mecca. Skyvalet has a small collection of C&J and EG, but otherwise, nice shoes are not easy to come by. The Neiman's etc. barely carry anything other than corrected grain Gucci & Prada crap... How do you manage sizing? Trial...

I don't need your advice or anybody's advice for that. Third, let's stick to the issue, which is about the shoes.
Quote: Originally Posted by Newcomer I would love to know this as well. I have always wanted to order a pair but have always been worried about sizing issues. I contacted Phillip Car one of the principals at SC. We discussed the size issue in depth. He asked me what shoes I wore, and I listed the EGs, C&J, JL, etc. I wear a British 9E, so he advised me to try their 9F, which is kind of similar. But in fact, the shape of the last is important....
