Or a shell Northcote if you're looking at the 348?  

 

I spoke with Pernilla regarding pricing, she said tentatively £665, £554 ex VAT (~$675) with no make-up decisions other than brown shell and dainite sole.  Though I understand it is Lauren who runs the GMTOs.

Ordered the Cardigan 4 from @pediwear on Monday and delivered to California today. Great service and other than some bloom in some of the broguing, the shoes look great.

Hi guys

I am looking at either buying the Lonsdale or the Hallam. Both are quite similar but the Lonsdale is hand grade. I can definitely notice the difference with handgrade on the brown shoes but less so on the black. What is the difference in quality between the two? Is the leather better in the Lonsdale?

Thanks in advance

Would anyone be interested in a GMTO for Lindricks in burgundy shell cordovan with dainite sole?

Yes, I'm lucky @pediwear had my size (UK7) so I jumped on it with the Pound being so low vs the Dollar. Here is a picture today in natural lighting.

What is the best for a 8,5UK?

 

Connaught, Hallam or Radstock?

 

 

I want wider and longer last of three them. 


As they a picture is worth a thousand words. 

 

 

From left to right are the Connaught in 236, the Sydney in 341, and the Alex in 348. The 236 is the traditional, rounded English last; 241 is quite similar to the 236 overall but a bit more sculpted; 248 is a very sleek soft chisel last. For sizing reference I take the same size in 341 and 348 but depending on your foot morphology that might not be the case.

 

Whether to go with the Connaught, Radstock, or Hallam will largely come down to personal preference and fit. The 236 if you want something very traditional and the 348 if you like something very sleek and continental. The 341 is a good mid point between the two but can look either sleek or not so much depending on the welt. 236 is the widest whereas length wise they are all similar in the same size; however, the 348 will look the longest visually.

The roughout is a durable suede that is water resistant. For care John advises the use of Saphir Omni Nettoyant to clean and Super Invulner to waterproof if you would like. Over time the roughout suede will get lighter and the nap fuzzier.

Thanks - I had a similar question into Lauren @ C&J... is their roughout full-grain, or is it truly a (split) suede?

 

In my mind, a roughout is smooth inside, because it's a full grain.  If C&J's is a roughout suede, it implies that the rough, or backside, of the hide is still exposed, but the hide has been thinned and the soft suede nap is inside the shoe.

 

Or am I completely nuts?

In short hand grade has their own lasts that you won't find in the bench grade collection. The leather is better on the hand grade for something in black it will be easier to mirror polish than the Hallam; the hand grade has more burnishing and finishing applied at the factory. Other differences will be a closed channel sole. For more detail C&J has a page that outlines the difference between the two lines with some pictures for illustration: http://www.crockettandjones.com/news/index/crockett-and-jones-hand-grade-vs-main-line---an-extra-two-weeks
