1) I see they're $585 from skyvalet. Is that a good price during the holiday season, or do you expect them to go lower?

2) I'm sure some of you have ordered from sky valet--has your experience been a good one with them?

3) what do you love most about C & J?

Thanks everyone!

Sorry, I haven't had a reply! Can anyone assist? Thank you!

SV is nice to deal with. My experiences have been positive. $585 is a decent price.

I've never been a fan of monk strap shoes. However, every time I see Cleav's photos it makes me reconsider.

I'll take that as a compliment, Thanks Bullit!

May I get some help regarding the 314 last. I am a 9US in the RL Marlow penny loafer in the same last, what would the UK size equivalent be in a regular C&J 314?

UK8E.

Approximately yes but wider. A friend recently bought a darlton brogue in us8e (not d) and side by side it is narrower than his pembroke in uk7e. So surely a 9d in marlow penny (that I owned in same size and was super narrow) isnt exactly a uk 8e

Some interesting vintage C&J for RL suede captoes

I really like the thick captoe stitching on these. Maybe they could do that for a MTO

Picked up some winter shoes in the C&J factory store today. Was after something with a decent sole and found these with the Vibram sole.

 

Can't seem to find any reference to them anywhere though. They are marked up as Budapest3's.

Beautiful. May I ask how the fit is for you? Are they UK sized? Run big or small? Wide or narrow?

I am very tempted to order them smile.gif

Thanks.  They are US sized. they fit similarly to my C&J for RL, Marlow wingtip bluchers which are also US sized and fit a bit narrow in the toe box.  If you are 10.5C US, I bet you could go with 10.5D and be good to go.

 

Good luck!

Thank you, ReppTiePrepster! That's incredibly helpful. I actually wear a 10 in the Marlows so just called my SA at the BB store here in San Francisco. He's holding a pair for me to try on Monday.

Have a good holiday.
