Fashion forward rubbish, e.g. ugly £400 trainers and polka dot monks for the girls. Please C&J stick to what you do best: the classics. We don't need another Grenson.

This comment adequately sums up the sensible reaction of anyone who reads this thread, but I feel the need to write that those shoes are abominably hideous and genuinely offend me.

Unlike those hideous trainer 'things,' the ladies polka dot monks are cute smile.gif

It's been a week or two since wore my Purdey Conistons looking forward to next few days. Zero here outside in the Windy City.

Ye gads the Truro is an ugly shoe. WTF are C&J thinking. Surely these is something interesting in the archives they could have released, rather than this piece of dog shit.

Those look fantastic. A bit more reddish than most other C&J chestnut I've seen (or owned).

Hi all

This is my first post on StyleForum, I've been reading this thread for a while, and I got plenty of amazing info out of it. So I hope you guys can help me out on this one.

I pulled the trigger on my first pair of English shoes. The previous pair which loved to bits was some RM Williams MTO, which I wore without much painful break-in.

Since Double Monk opened a retail store in Sydney, I popped up for a fitting, initially wanting to get the C&J Alex but eventually settled for the Weymouth. It was literally the first pair of shoes that I confessed to fall in love with.

The fit was great regarding length, but since I'm new to English shoes, and having a snug fit is pretty much alien to me, I've had considerable issues regarding break-in. I've hit the road with the shoes on alternate days, even walking for 5 consecutive hours in a work setting, which the RMW handled beatifully most of the time. Considering that I've only got the shoes for a bit more than the week, I got some severe issues with the leather cutting painfully into my little toes, and to secure the heels, I have to tie my shoes so tightly that it actually hurts after a bit.

I was measured as a 7 UK in store, but the salespeople advised me to go down a half-size to 6.5 (with 7 a bit loose on the sides). Will these issues go away with further wear? I do understand that it's the beginning of a long journey with this pair, and I hope to get much out of it, and potentially other C&Js down the road.

Wha do you guys think? Any help will be much appreciated, and if you have made it this far, thanks for bearing it with me

Sorry to hear you are having problems with your Weymouths.

 

Interestingly, I picked up some "worn once" Weymouths on ebay last year.  Absolutely beautiful shoes and oozing with quality.

 

I found the fit wasn't quite there but only because of a tight fit on my little toe.  Although these might have stretched out a little if I wore them, I didnt want to risk sore feet, so I let them go.

 

I find other C&J lasts fit really well including Bradford (341), Pembroke (325) and Monktons (348)

 

I wonder if the Weymouth has a particularly narrow last in the toe box.
