Meister wherever we are there is something we hide from our wives--in my case its shoes and cufflinks. But . . .I think I am just kidding myself.

Who here can claim, "In 70 to 80 years I'll STILL have a nice bottom side"?

Very nice with the burnish look at the front. How much does that cost to do? Or you do it by your self?

The initial finish was done by the factory, it comes out like this, I merely gave it a mirror shine

The whole set, shoes, cedar wood tree (great for moisture and shape), plus a free polish, cost £500

I think C&J handgrade really need to step their game up

Or lower their price. Either way, I am done buying C&J. Kind of "meh" quality once you get good shoes.

I agree, handgrade collection is very expensive (even tho it's C&J best shoes) but for a buck more you could get better.

They should start having toe pegged, fiddleback waist in their future collection
Even New & Lingwood had fiddleback waist shoes, price a bit lower than C&J, albeit very narrow selection

p.s. I have heard C&J make shoes for N&L

Not just cosmetic things. They just feel very flimsy and light compared to EG and G&G, JL and other higher end shoes. When I think of an English shoe I think of something very solid and sturdy, C&J isn't that at all.
