I was in a branch in Jermyn Street and the salesman told me that these boots had been treated with a wax to make them extra waterproof. Some shoes didn't have this wax treatment but these did.

I was wondering how this would affect care and polishing. Would it not be possible to achieve a high shine in these boots?

Would there be any negatives to having this wax treatment on the leather, especially in terms of cracks or wrinkling?

And finally, would anyone recommend treading with Saphir Renomat in order to remove this treatment from the leather before conditioning?

Any enlightenment and advice appreciated!

Chelsea 5 (in the roughout suede) has had a wax treatment, the Chelsea 8 is made from normal unwaxed suede.

Turnbull and C&J are separate companies, run and owned by different people. Turnbull is owned by the al-Fayed family and C&J is run and owned by the Jones family. The connection between the two is that, although invisible from the outside, the first ever C&J shop (69 Jermyn St.) is situated in Turnbull's shop. I believe the shop was Turnbull's old bespoke department before they moved round the corner but I am not 100% sureon this. Because it is technically a shop-in-shop Turnbull will show up on card statements from C&J 69 Jermyn St.
If you are ever in 69 and ask for the loo you will be taken down the stairs which lead directly into T&A.

Thanks for your reply Crat! You're quite right, but Chelsea 8 also comes in black calf leather, described as 'black wax calf' and 'soft waxed calf' on C&J's website http://m.crockettandjones.com/product/chelsea-8-black

They are C&J Pembroke in Tan Scotch Grain.  I have the same ones.

I'm a firm believer that if you only purchase one Pembroke, the tan is the way to go for sure.  So great choice!

 

I have no Alden or Carmina experience (yet), but C&J has definitely become my favorite shoemaker.  That said, although the Skye is a beautiful boot, their chestnut color is just a tad too reddish for my liking.  Otherwise it's fantastic.  For me, it would probably be a decision between the Carmina or the Alden (although I'd take a tan scotch grain Lindrick on the 325 last any day of the week - but I missed those by several years apparently!)

 

Thanks! Yeah, I'm not big on the reddish color either (just personal preference). I'm going to keep thinking over these. Maybe wait a while and come back to them, since I have plenty of casual boots anyway. I need to stay focused on dress shoes.

I don't know if any retailers had it as a model but I know for certain it was a stock offering last year (maybe previous ones too).
