Well as has been heralded, C&J came though - there was a queue waiting for them to open at 2pm which was a good sign. Once inside a larger room than the others, they had a good and quite consistent level of stock. I came away with the Bermuda in tan nubuck on a rubber sole for 80, Derby in tan country grain on a Wayferer sole for 120 and a Brooks Brothers Alonquin split-toe blucher in black grain on a Dainite sole. They had a good selection of boots at 150 and dress shoes...
I hope the OP doesn't mind me stealing his thread. I'm sat in the White Elephant pub just around the corner from the John Lobb factory, having visited the following factory shops: Church's - turn left out of the station across tge railway bridge, and the large factory is a couple of hundred yards down on your left.

Well I picked this up at a thrift recently - it's not my size, but I thought someone would benefit from it. Condition-wise it's not perfect as you'll see, but then I hope I've priced it accordingly. I'm not making any money on this (shipping from the UK, the pound has taken a hammering!).
