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.
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.
