Today

Collected my replacement pair of Bradfords today from CnJ Canary Wharf. Can't fault their service. Fresh from the factory. No hint of inconsistencies in colour with this pair.

Black is Nah, IMO.. Not worth the MTO hassle .. Also, I believe there is a thread dedicated for these propositions ..

NewStart, beautiful Tetburys. but to my eyes, it looks like the left boot is a much lighter shade of brown than the right. Could just be the lighting...

Thank gent, and sorry for the deceptive photos, i have got a closer look and luckily there is no difference between the left and right shoes

Any sizing advice for the Harvard Loafer?

 

I am a 9.5UK in the 337 and 10.5US in the RL & BB models including the shell loafer. I wanted to see if the unlined suede would be a size issue. I have the Teign which is too formal a last for what I am looking for. I have it in a 9.5UK as well, and it is a tiny bit loose on my foot. 

 

Thanks & Best,

Can someone provide a simple rundown of the differences between hand-grade and bench-grade shoes?

Much thanks!

  • Oak bark, closed-channel soles (HG) vs. unknown, open-channel soles (BG).  
  • Full sock liner (HG) vs. partial (BG)
  • Closer edge trimming and other finishing details for HG
  • Better leather quality for HG (I don't know how to be more specific, but C&J claims this and it conforms to my own personal experience, that HG leather is softer and creases less deeply than BG)

And the last is nicer, at least to my eyes.
