Beautiful pair of fine corduroy trousers by Bamford and Sons brand new without tags The hems are finished at around 35 inches inner leg with about 1 1/2inches to spare and waist measures around 39 1/2 inches, rise 11 1/2 inches. Very fine quality with belt loops and side tabs. Photos available. Asking $120 shipped worldwide. Check other stuff on ebay Edward Green, Crockett Jones, Mabitex etc http://shop.ebay.com.au/rhumba1210/m...id=p4340.l2562
I've had this happen only once and it was a pair of Incotex and they were not seconds and were heavyish cotton. Had them resown at seat of pants and never a problem again. Maybe instead of saying don,t buy mags it's better to suggest having them looked at when the hems are done and just make sure he stitching is OK - it's not as if many of us are paying a fortune for these and compared to anything else for $50 - $100 they arenerally terrific
I have the same issue and consequently selling a pair on B And S. They just seem too short in 11e whereas other lasts 358 337 are just fine for me. I guess they must be perfect for someone who finds these lasts not right!
OK Thanks for those thoughts. I have 3 other pairs of CJ for Kilgour on 358 last and all seem the same shape whereas the Cleverley are quite a bit more slender at the toe. The leather is quite different though being more fine and supple and I guess lighter weight than the CJ HG - maybe that accounts for some of the difference in the toe. As you might see also the soles have a more EG kind of look - even though its just cosmetic.
Sorry my photos suck! When you click on them they do enlarge though. Anyway it seems to me the Cleverley are more chiselled and seem narrower and finer at the toes than the other ones which are definitely 358 in same size. They both fit the same.

Others in this forum have agreed in previous discussions about this topic, that have both shoes. I think the AC line is alot better than their standard range, but then one does get what you pay for. There are those who say the...
Also these - same in brown calf

Not sure if this has been mentioned but I have some nice Kilgour shoes by CJ and they are definitely handgrade, not somewhere in between. Example is these which are exactly the handgrade model Stanley in black suede - you can see all the handgrade features
Here is a nice pair of CJ black suede Chelsea boots 11E. I usually take UK11 or US12 but I find these run slightly small - hence they are only very lightly worn as they always felt a little tight. Probably would suit a US11.5 or even 11 IMO. Asking $200 > $180 plus postage from Australia at real cost.

Just a heads up as I'm sure these might generate some bids. Have reported to eBay Seems to have been taken down off eBay now
