Thank you. 

If I wanted the stock harlech brown cordovan boots, how much would those run me? I really want some brown shell captoe boots. Also, do the stock harlech boots have a dainite sole?

Harlech stock cordovan in brown is £520.80 with double leather as stock model.
Ps the price quote is ex VAT.

Surprised it's behind the Lowndes, it being part of the Skyfall collection.

Obviously you can call up a C&J store, but Pediwear, Bodileys, and Robert Old all have 'em:

I didn't realize they carried them. Are they made to regular benchgrade standards? Or some other level?

From what I have read in this thread, they are a bit below benchgrade, but not by much. I wouldn't care. I really like the look of the Nubuck.

I finally received the shipping notice this afternoon. Figures, another Thursday shipment getting to a closed office on Saturday and waiting until next Tuesday. I need to pay better attention to who uses FedEx Home and actually use a home address.

Ordered these from Barney's last week:
Trafford Blucher
Size: 9 US (42 EU 8 UK)


Shipment arrived yesterday. The box contained the 348 lasted Tetbury boot in brown calf???????

The Tetbury was labeled 9D - Barneys website lists them as 9 US (42 EU 8 UK) . I figured I would try them on to check fit. Bear in mind all of my English sized C&J's are UK8.5E (including models on the 348 last). The Tetbury in 9D was ridiculously long in comparison to my UK8.5E's. Even had I ordered the Tetbury, which I didn't, I would have returned them for being too long. Strange .....

They really do appear ridiculously elongated to me. I have a trouble lately deciding what C&J to purchase next as most of their lasts look way too pointy to me- except for 314 and perhaps 325 .. Though it could easily be my problem solely, as anything else beside EG 202 last looks like a mile long shoe to me.

337 hand grade version of 341 last. See the Clifford wingtip as a great example of how it's executed. I find the 341 to be a great fit and comfortable.

This was my experience too! I was wondering if Barneys got a shipment that was UK sized. I'm a UK9E. I ordered the US10D and they were ridiculously long. I returned them and ordered the US9.5D and they were a bit long and too narrow, so I returned them too. Really strange sizing ...

Are they? I wouldn't necessarily agree with that - the boots I've handled made by C&J for Purdey and Holland & Holland have been lovely. Bear in mind that although Purdey et al are gun-makers, they occupy a 'luxury goods' niche, too.

This was only my impression, from this thread (talk of a somewhat thinner Dainite?), and I would gladly accept to be wrong smile.gif I wouldn't have any problems buying a pair myself.

Yeah, I remember that discussion and would hesitate to base any thoughts on quality around sole thickness. It could just be that Purdey specified a thinner sole for their own purposes. As for leather quality, that's a proper subjective discussion unless talking about polar extremes.

Did I ever post a pic of the Purdey-branded Pickering boot I picked up a couple or three months ago? I was that impressed with them that I sold my Coniston boots. The higher leg and lighter tone of the Purdey boot won me over straight away smile.gif

I m planning to buy directly from C&J from their website. Do you know if they ever go on sale?
