Nice score. Love the variation of colors. Enjoy!

I also know 363 is more elongated but I just want to know for a black cap toe Oxford, what is more suitable, in your experienced opinions.

 

I prefer the 337, however it is up to you what you like.  Shoes look different in real life and when they're actually being worn.

 

A couple of photos of both shoes in the wild for you.

Both are very beautiful, Sir. I think I will buy the 337 for black shoes and maybe the 363 for a brown pair (calf or suede). Thank you for the photo.

Can anybody with these boots compare them to other C&J they have as to the grade, I have believe that they are above the Benchgrade  standard but below the Handgrade is that right? when I look at them closely the stiching of the uppers is beautiful, I cant seem to pick anything that falls short of Handgrade but I do not have any handgrade to compare with.

 

Overall I love these they are by the best footware I have ever owned, and the fit is great

I wanted to let you guys know that I’m organizing a GMTO C&J Harlech whiskey shell cordovan boot. See this post for more details and this post for pics of whiskey Harlechs from a previous GMTO.

I’m currently waiting to hear back from C&J on whether there is enough whiskey shell available. In the meantime, please PM me or reply in the C&J MTO thread if you’re interested. We need at least 12 people and currently have 5.

EDIT: I neglected to mention that the current pounds-dollars conversion rate should make the price of these boots significantly lower than usual. The rate could creep back up though, so I'd like to move quickly on this.

If anyone wants to hedge currency, and doesn't have a British account, I think you can use your Paypal account, upload some cash, and convert it to sterling and let it sit.  If you believe that the dollar is at its strongest, hedge 100%.  If you are unsure, hedge 50%.

Some relatively cheap (for 'murricans) mushroom suede Skyes here. About US$407 plus shipping. I believe they'll ship via postal service on request which greatly increases your odds of not having to pay anything for customs/fees.

X-Post from the C&J MTO Thread - Please see that thread for questions, discussion, etc…  Thanks.

 

BIG SNOW MEANS SNOWDON TIME!

The Northeast is getting HAMMERED with snow right now.  Don't you wish you had an ASS-KICKING BOOT WITH FULL BELLOWS TONGUE ​in which you could fearlessly face down the elements???   Of course, you do, goddammit, why am I even asking you that?  Well then, time to sign on for the boot you wish you had now - at least you'll be ready for the next time around:

 

 

Snowdon: £550 - £458.33 (Approximately $688.78 but subject to exchange rate variability) excluding vat + shipping

- 228 Last

- Oak Wax Hide

- 5 Speed Hooks

Full Bellows Tongue!

- Faux Stitch Captoe

- Commando Sole

- Veldtschoen

Full Leather Lining?  To be voted on.

 

12 Needed:

@budapest12

@Nikola

@laufer - Maybe

@68Bullitt

 

This is a boot you can wear through the worst of it, but pair it with some tweed trousers and you can also wear it to the office.  The captoe will help dress it up nicely when you still need to go in to work in the sh*ttiest weather.

$688 is insanely good deal for all the folks living in the US!

X-post from the Shoe Care thread. Just posting here in case anyone else has the Barney's version of the Wicklow. I had posted my Barney's Wicklows (center in the pic below) last October, wondering how to clean and condition the "robust oiled-hide leather," as C&J puts it, since they were looking a little worse for wear.



No one really seemed to know what to do with these, and C&J never responded. Obviously these are very casual boots. By now they were pretty much beat to hell and the leather had gotten really dry. I tried a little Renovateur on the back of the pull tab, which had already darkened somewhat from oils from my hand, and let it sit overnight. The Renovateur definitely darkened it further. As an experiment, since I didn't know exactly how else to treat and clean the leather, I decided to apply it to the whole shoe last night. Here's how it turned out:



In all honesty, I like them much better in the newer darker color! It's always nice when an experiment goes better than expected. We'll see how they look after some more wear. I'm still not really sure what the deal is with this leather.

I think they look much better now. Great job! Shows what the renovator can do overnight.

Thanks! That oiled-hide leather is really strange. I certainly don't have anything else like it. Now that they are darker it almost looks like CXL, but it's not. It almost has a kind of nap to it. Does anyone own the regular non-Barneys version of the Wicklow? How do you condition/clean it? I think the Wexford is the same leather as well.

Here's a pair of the Peal & Co. punch caps on the 240 last after a few years of wear. I'm still a big fan of these.
