Good to meet you!

 

I can't stop thinking about those green Lowndes though...

Yeah, actually sat next to you. You had more shoes around you than on the shelves! LOL

I do have several DMs and love em, as beautiful as those green suede were I couldn't see them fitting in/working for me.

I had about 6 pairs shortlisted this time!  I wish my budget was bigger.

 

Did you end up getting any today?

Also, I've never had country grain leathers before.

 

Can I just use Saphir creams and wax polish like smooth calf leather?  Does grain leather have some kind of coating on it?

 

There is one small shop scuff that I want to re colour with Saphir cream.

Thats a very good plan - I`d nourish with a cream to get into the grains little patterns, and you can finish off with a wax - they can take a good shine, but it usually looks better on the toe area - perhaps the grain is stretched there are smoother. But because of the drains pattern, as the leather creases, the wax becomes waxy, and can do with multiple brushings between wears.

I use Dasco Knightbridge shoe trees on most of the C&J shoes for which picture is shown here as well and they fit great on most of the lasts like 348/337/341/335/358. 

 

Can anyone suggest me good options for summer loafers as i don't currently have any from C&J. thanks

Nice. Did you order directly from C & J? How long was the wait? Did you stay TTS or go down half a size?

Thanks. Yes i ordered from C&J Burlington Arcade in UK. NY store didn't had in stock so i ordered in UK anyways to get better pricing as i save the VAT.

took around 2.5 months for Delivery as they placed my order directly with factory. for size i stayed TTS and fit is great. Trying to break them in as Shell is very tough and takes some time.

Awesome. These are my current top of the list. Were you tempted by the Skye cordovan model? 

 

Any chance you could post pics of your Harlech's in sunlight?

Did you get hit with import duty?

I too visited the factory outlet this weekend.

Picked up some Hallams in 'antique burgundy', a colour I can only seem to find elsewhere in women's shoes.
Being pretty much new to quality shoes, these are a new world of comfort and style.
The only flaw I can find is one of the toecaps not being square, but you can only notice this if the shoes are against each other. A steal for 180GBP.

Excellent shine Gerry. Did it take you long to get to it to that state?

Thank you.
It seems to be different burgundy to the colour C&J usually offer. Looks more purple and less red. It's used on the 'Jenny' and the 'Courtenay'
