I'm a bit puzzled this happened to essentially brand new boots, especially at this price. I didn't feel I was wearing them too tightly laced or anything.

 

Just got a response from C&J saying they will send me some hooks to be installed by my local cobbler. They also said that if there's any issue I can send them the boots.

 agreed, the dark brown burnished calf are great, mate.  Thanks for the earlier advice!) 

The new Sydney loafers will join my earlier ones in black calf, to form a mated pair.

The Edgeware oxfords are my alternative to MTO Westbourne in dark brown burnished calf.  However, I may end up getting both.  Hmm.

I sent a pair of Sydney loafers in snuff suede back for exchange for MTO Teign loafers in snuff suede, i.e. exactly the same as the stock model available from C&J France.  Alas, I tried unsuccessfully to source a pair via C&J UK.   So, I will be forced to go down the MTO route, if I can't source a pair directly from C&J France presently.  

@PCK1
 again, thanks for recommending the sleeker Teign loafers to me, which I prefer over the more chunky Sydney loafers as my preferred C&J suede loafers.

New Brunswicks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Although they are featured here with Double Monk's generic trees, I did not in fact purchase them from Double Monk, but from American Tailors in Melbourne.

 

Very pleased.

I had a half hour to kill in midtown yesterday, so I popped into Paul Stuart. It's not on their site, but I wanted to mention they had several C&Js on sale, including the Severn boot that Barney's and Sky Valet carry:

https://skyvaletshoes.com/product/crockett-jones-severn-boot-dark-brown-burnished-calf/

There were several different styles of it including brown suede and navy suede and I think they were all marked down to $378 IIRC. Pretty good price so if you have any interest it in, give the store a call.

That is a damn fine looking boot.  Does anyone know which last it's on?  It looks pretty narrow.

 

Fred - was the brown suede dark or snuff?

I can't remember the last now. It was dark brown like the Barney's version though. There were other C&Js too including the wingtip monk that @othertravel asked about here which was definitely on the 348. The Severn boot in came in navy suede, and at least one other color in calf, I just can't remember. I should have taken pics.

Looking for some more feedback....

 

I currently own a couple of C&J Finsbury/341 last and want to get a Skye 2 boot which is a 335 last.  Wondering if anyone has gone through this, looking for any pointers or concerns, do I size down?

 

 

 

Thank you

Supersad at the moment. :(

 

Today I got in my inbox the speed hooks that C&J sent me (they took less than 48 hours from UK to Spain) after one of the hooks in my Islays came off the 3rd time I wore them (maybe I'm stupid but they're my nicest boots at the moment so I baby them and wear them in special occasions).

 

So I took them to my cobbler (best in town... sigh) and he did this:

 

 

Completely misaligned and he applied too much pressure so now the leather has a visible fold and who knows how much damage there is. Also the hooks are silver and the original ones brown. :( Trying to avoid sending the boots was a terrible idea in the end.

 

I've contacted C&J again, I want this fixed by them even if I have to pay.

That's a shame MP, maybe if you explain to CJ they will accommodate (!) your request somewhat kindly. I'm sure they'll be sympathetic.
post #8773 of 13828

Thanks, I know it's a first world problem but this left me very sad after a day that was not great either (at work and outside).

P.S. Welcome to the thread @Faster
!
Thx dude ! biggrin.gif

@MickeyPunch, have you realized that the hook is different colour when you received it? Why installing the different colour in the first place?

Question is would CJ accept to pay the postage in both direction from Spain to UK and back. That alone would cost at least 40 EUR .. Don't blame yourself for trying to deal this on your own. However, I would have asked for a full refund or exchange in the first place.
