I do agree with this to an extent. However the James is a fairly sturdy shoe with a barbour welt and it definitely has a heavy feel to which I like. It is what I would describe as more of a british style loafer, whereas American loafers (which I am also a fan of) tend to have a lighter moccasin style construction.

Although I would not opt for a dainite sole myself I think the shoe can take it. I tend to wear mine as a work shoe rather than a casual shoe although it could be worn as either. They also do a version of the James called Giacomo which has a double leather sole and that must be seriously heavy.

I found this pair of James on ebay, it looks very attrattive to me, can anyone help me with the color? What the color's name? Are these loafers originals?

Thanks!

It was actually an available pair that Richard had in stock.

I think the color is Burgundy Burnished.

Anyone got a pair of the Lambourns? I can't decide between going a full size down in UK from my normal US dress shoe size, or just a half size.

How do james loafer size relates to stow size?
post #3834 of 4871

Ordered some black stows from the shoehealer last week - got a follow-up about sizing but haven't heard anything since.  Do they normally provide a tracking #?

Yes they do and Richard is rather prompt when it comes to shipping, I believe he is out of town for the moment.

You can always email them to inquire about your order status, they have great customer service.

Hey Guys,

 

A few of us have been trying to put together an MTO project with 3 definites confirmed.  It'll be based upon a recent Junya Watanabe X Trickers Super Boot model that retailed earlier last year at Mr. Porter, Paul & Friends, and The End.

 

There are some modifications we'll be making to that model too.  And the quote we got from Richard from the Shoe Healer, makes it a better deal too.

 

 

Current pricing for our MTO model would be £325.00 (exclusive of VAT), or around $522.00 for non-EU based customers.  

 

Inclusive of VAT, it would be £390.00.

 

Tentative Specs are as Follows:

 

Tricker's Eaton Model (w/ no medallion on toe) i.e. a perforated captoe boot
Acorn Antique Leather
Brass Eyelets
Red or Orange Lining
Orange Pull Tabs
Commando Sole
Natural Welt
4444 Last / 5 Fitting
 
The photos below should give you an approximate idea of what the boot would turn out like:
 
 

 

 

What's different with our MTO model is that it would be on the 4444 last, and have brass eyelets, whereas the original Junya model is rumoured to be on the 4497 . . . 

 

Here's a link to a captoe Eaton model on the 4444, which should give you a better idea of what the toe box area would look like:
