Interesting - I did not know CJ carried that many shell colors.  The burgundy looks great.  Also, is the russian reindeer the leather pullled from the sunken ship?   Looks pretty cool but dont know that I would go with a balmoral in that material.  Boot would look awesome.  Thanks for posting.

Yeah sunken ship leather. And would prefer a boot as well but believe those can only be done bespoke from Cleverley now

I assume you got one of each.

P.S. Welcome to the thread @Faster
!

LECBURY? Looks like LEDBURY to me, which goes along with the usual theme of being named after places (a town in Herefordshire).

@fabius the place name based naming convention is interesting.  Thanks for clarifying that.

What model is this?

No idea. Same exact medallion as the Gerrard 3 and Guildford though, so it is likely C&J.

Awesome, thanks. Looks like an exclusive mock up.

A few weeks ago someone was kind enough to post a link to an online offer for Audleys, which I duly took advantage of. I had never owned the 337 before but figured for $450 I'd roll the dice and im quite happy that I did. The toe can look a touch blobby on the website photos or when viewed directly overhead, but from virtually every other angle it's a very elegant last (and the audley a very elegant shoe). In the interest of having more real-life shots of this great shoe, below is a first polish pic after 4-5 wears:



Also, aside-by-side with G&G MH71, as this is I think a good comparison that's not often made:

I popped in to the C&J shop today to try out a pair of Aintree derbies. I usually take a 9.5 wide or 10 standard but on measuring assistant suggested 9 E. I was sceptical but on trying them on they were incredably soft and comfortable. Don't know if this is a C&J size thing or its because their leather is much better but it surprised me.

Darn.  Any left in 10UK at that price?

Looks like they've got a 10UK in black, and 9.5 and 10.5 in brown.  Price is slightly higher at $467 (sale price of $584 and a 20% off coupon) but still a solid deal.

FWIW I was originally looking for a 8.5UK because that's what I've always bought in the 358 but as that was unavailable I took an 8 (after first trying it out on Jermyn St). The half-size down is slightly more snug but on the whole fits much better than the 358 as it's broken in a bit.

The Audley is a very nice, conservative shoe - but not boring. I own it in dark brown Antique. Off topic, C&J's HG dark brown antique is one of the best dark browns on the market, IMO, and I am comparing it with the likes of EG's dark oak, G&G's vintage oak, and JL's dark brown museum.

Your link is to Farfetch. I have ordered Handgrades from them in the past (model: Leeds). Service was great and got free DHL Express shipping ($620-ish, duties included). The sale price noted above is almost comical. Nice score.
