Cleav, did you happen to see many non-standard widths there? I'd assume they would have some F width, were there any G width?

Sorry RC didn't notice. Anyone can ring, up when the FS is open, to check on what is available so plainly that will cover widths as well. Obviously, mistakes are made when they are making different shoes so pot luck really.

That scenario is tough for someone making a special journey from afar, luckier if you happen to be able to drop in reasonably often.

Does anyone know what time of year Barney's puts it's C&J on sale?
post #6380 of 12762

Just curious if anyone else has seen anything like this with C&J shell, http://www.styleforum.net/t/166941/whats-up-with-my-shell-cordovan . I have a pair of shells that I haven't treated or done much more than wear around the house and noticed a couple little patches like the ones pictured in the link (though mine aren't as pronounced).  I emailed the Jermyn street store to get there thoughts but figured I would tap this well of information as well.

Now on Barney's warehouse site (20% off some models).
post #6382 of 12762
In the past Barney's had some late November and also late December. 30-50% off if I recall correctly.

Yes if you happen to be a size 12UK then you can get a black Hallam at 20% at Barney's Warehouse at the moment.  Bit underwhelming but they do pop up with great deals sometimes.

Not C&J related, but did you go to another other factory stores while in Northampton (eg. EG, Lobb)?  If so, what were prices like there?

I've called up factory store a few times.  Seldom have any widths other than E.

 

If it's any indication, the C&J website lists very few models in F and G widths.

Sorry if this seems like an obvious question, but I poked around the C&J site and can't seem to find the phone number for the factory store. Could someone please share? Thanks!

I got my Coniston's from Barneys during a sale December 2013 at 40% off.  I consider myself to have really lucked out.  They were a special Barneys makeup in brown wax calf rather than the tan scotch grain but I'm still quite happy with them and it gives me an excuse to get the tan scotch grain ones at some point.

What are peoples' experiences with pebble-grain leather from C&J? I had a pair of Allen Edmonds pebble-grain leather bluchers in black. Picked up from eBay and eventually decided to let them go. Ever since I have been looking for a replacement.

I need a simple PTB (rubber sole would be an extra) for bad weather wear. Pros v. cons on pebble-grain to smooth finish leather? I think the former provided a bit more texture, visual interest if you will, compared to PTB. And the pebble-grain will not crease as much if not quickly versus smooth calf.

Or is it all personal preference? I don't see a lot of talk about a pebble-grain PTB shoe around these parts of CM.

I'm curious if anyone has any specific information about these. They appear to be C&J Handgrade for RL, meaning they're several years old at least.

 

The interior serial numbers read 1051331/60805 on one side and 815976820123   12D on the other

 

This was taken in the shade.

 

But the calf shows amazing colour and marbling in sunlight.

Same as their usual sale schedule. End of May and end of November.
Look for their "designer" sale.
Search for posts from user tacobender. He is/was an SA at Barney's in Arizona. Haven't seen him around in a while but you can figure out the past dates of sales. He's sold a lot of C&J as well as other brands to SF peeps.
