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.
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:
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:
