I have purchased there a few times. They use the US postal system for final delivery. I have never been hit with duties.

Pediwear doesn't always use postal service so when ordering, be sure to specifically request it.
Got a nasty surprise when they used UPS once.

@bustert there's a whole thread devoted to customs and duty charges in the SW&D forum I think.
Basically, for shoes, duty will be about 8.5% plus possible brokerage fee of around $25 depending upon courier and service.
DHL and Fedex will bill after delivery. UPS and USPS collect at delivery.
USPS there's no brokerage fee and chances of getting hit with any charges are very low.

Can't wait for the surprise on my way.  I ordered a pair of Islays from Robert Old and just got the notice they are coming via UPS.

Thanks a ton!

Here's a pair that have never seen any neutral polish in their life.

That is interesting. And good to know.

My orders from there - 3, I think - have all come by way of USPS and I have never requested it. But moving forward I will. biggrin.gif

I will be adding to my collection once again, this time with a pair of Tetbury's in Brown Suede for this fall. Paid full RRP but if my past experiences serve me the same, I will be happy with my purchase. I have no patience to speak of as well.

 

I would love to see some images of folks who own these already, as it is my understanding they are a fairly common piece for C&J aficionado.

 

Image taken from SF...

 

Best,

Hi,

Would someone help me with these shoes on eBay, http://www.ebay.com/itm/291245378983?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

The seller claims that they are C & J handgrade model called the wilshire. I googled but nothing came up. Are these genuine C& J handgrades? He also claims that the tagged size is US.

Thank you for your time.

Look to be legit made for Oxxford Clothes - a company that does not cut corners on quality (they suit presidents). Not sure if truly hand grade but would think so. Seller looks very reputable.

And that ridiculously pointy toe is good for killing bugs in tiny corners too.

Hey, guys. 

 

I'm interested in ordering the Purdey Islay(ish) boot, which this thread has led me to believe is shaped on the 325 last. I'm pretty sure I should size 1/2 down, but figured I'd check anyway. 

 

The C&J for RL thread seems to indicate that a true 325 last (as opposed to the Marlow's, which is apparently slightly narrower) fits on the wide side of one's true size. 

 

I'd most likely wear these boots with fairly thick socks. 

 

For reference purposes, I wear a US 10.5D  in Alden's Aberdeen last, as well as in most other shoes.  

 

Thoughts?

@Cleav

 

- Mate, you looked good on TV, providing your firm's (English to sign language?) translation services.  The camera likes you.

- Agree with others here at SF, as a real "honourable gentleman" from Derbyshire you should avoid joining the ranks of the self serving and fake ones down in London.  :D

- Can you please provide me with the vamp material details of all your 348 Westbourne shoes in brown shades, which you posted pictures of recently?  

- It appears from your pictures that you have two pairs of 348 Westbourne in brown shades, both special order or MTO.  One pair in antique dark brown and one in dark brown wax calf perhaps?  

- The standard model at the moment in brown shade is chestnut burnished calf.

- I would appreciate the above info to assist planning my future C&J orders.  Thanks!

They are both the same pair in burnished brown calf...not available except as MTO...or if you get amazingly lucky at the C&J Factory Shop...
