Hi Iagsun

 

We will check first thing tomorrow for you, but if the website says they are in stock they certainly should be. We did buy a little stock in this style so we have quite a few sizes available. I have been wearing my Cardigans today, it was their first outing this autumn/fall so seeing this thread made me smile - they are wonderful shoes both to wear and to look at.  

 

We will be in touch!

Just received these Sydneys. I know the tongue under the strap won't be seen but is this what should be expected of their quality? Surely the finisher could have easily applied some finish under the strap. Does anyone else have the Sydney with this same issue?

Please post more pictures when possible looking at cj loafer options at the moment.

Hi guys,
Im selling these brand new Bradford Cordovan Dark Brown, as they unfortunately are a fraction to small. Let me know if anybody is interested.

I would hardly call that an issue. I don't think it would be reasonable for the finisher to apply a small around of procuct to that area, attempt to brush/buff it, and still maintain an even finish on the visible area around the strap. Personally, I dont see it as an issue with quality or CJ. Enjoy the wonderful shoes, they look great!

Someone earlier in this thread mentioned of getting their leather sole converted to Dainite. Seriously? While most would love to convert *to* leather, why would anyone want to remove it for Dainite or rubber? I'm quite nonplussed...

Happy Tuesday!

Every time I see a pair from this run I wish my Harlechs had the same light shade of Whiskey.

I can't immediately think why one would want to convert TO leather on any practical basis. Most of my boots are on Dainite or some other form of synthetic sole and I wouldn't have them any other way. On slender and delicate dress shoes, sure, leather seems an okay choice.

Boots are typically worn in F/W, when the inclement weather is more likely, so a dainite sole or something similar works better in those conditions. I have a pair of Conistons with a leather sole that I'd like to convert to Dainite; the pebble grain is more casual so I don't mind making it less dressy.

I don't even understand why you would want Boots with a leather sole at all. You are wearing boots mostly in the Fall/Winter, which means it's often times raining or even snowing. So how is a leather sole gonna perform? Won't it be even damaged after a few months already?

Now if you just jump into your car and out of it into the office right away, then I wouldn't wear boots in the first place. I see no reason to wear boots all day long sitting on a chair.
