My first pair of Crockett & Jones.

Is the Vincent no longer in the C&J catalogue? I am happy with my pair of Crawford loafers and would have liked to purchase a pair of handgrade tassel loafers.

Saw that a couple of days ago, too bad almost all of them are on 337.

Darn. Unfortunately I am not an elephant. A size 8 would have had my MasterCard flashing. I might ask my local supplier to see if the factory will make me happy. One does not always need a discount to be satisfied.​

I'm happy to report my Islay's are breaking in nicely. Here they are getting another short outdoor session in prep for taking them on a trip to Maine in a couple of weeks...

Great looking boots. I feel like I should sell my AE Long Branches in brown grain and pick up a pit of Islays next.

It took me quite the journey to finally get my pair but they were very much worth it. Over the past few years I've evolved to buying "fewer things of better quality" and these definitely fit that bill.

That's exactly where I'm now finding myself.  Several years ago I was buying shoes left and right (a lot of AEs on steep discount), and while I still have plenty, for a while it was a revolving door as I would buy something (sometimes even used) and then realize I didn't really love them or have a use for them, and they'd end up on ebay.  

 

Over the last year or so I've been trying to cull the herd and focus on quality rather than quantity.  Which is partially what led me to C&J.  

 

One of my problems (virtues?) is that I tend to find something I like and then buy a lot of that.  I have 3 different pairs of Oak Street Bootmakers loafers, and both natural and brown shell Rancourt pinch penny loafers.  My current issue is that I'm in for the GMTO for the whisky Marlow and the Lindrick, but am about to put in an order with Lauren for a Pembroke and am coveting the Islays.  That would be two C&J shortwings (and the Marlow is just a shell Pembroke) and two C&J shortwing boots all at once.

 

I'll probably slow down a bit and take my time.  Probably.

Ho Guys,

Think you could help me out with this sizing enquiry.

I am thinking of having Cranford Chelsea in 360 which info isn't available much on the internet.

Was wondering if I shouls have it TTS or size it up 1/2 size as it is a narrow last?

I wear all CJ in 8.5 E Uk.

Thank you guys.

Andrew

Yep, been there, done that - though not quite to your level wink.gif

As an aside, I got both the Marlow and Lindrick RTW back in the day when there were deals to be had on them, and still both were a stretch for my wallet at the time. Those are two that I'm still very, very happy that I purchased; no regrets at all.

One tip that works for me is that when I find myself excited about a new find that I'm thinking about purchasing, I force myself to fence sit a reasonable amount of time to evaluate. Many times after a week or so of cooling off, I find I'm thankful that I didn't jump in. In retrospect, all of my worst mistake purchases were ones that I jumped on too quickly.

My last mental test is "what if it disappeared and wasn't available any more, would I regret not getting it?" - that's a great mental exercise for me; it really separates the wheat from the chaff. My Islays, which are from Purdey and on a different last, were exactly that situation since they discontinued them at the end of last season. I actually missed out until I was lucky enough for another buyer in my size for whom they didn't fit contacted me to sell.
