Looks great!

 

I don't suppose you could give is a quick summary on how you achieved this?

 

Dye product name, wax stripping agent, etc.

Hi guys, does anyone know where to shop for shoes in Paris? I'm there for two days and other than locating the C&J store I couldn't find something similar to Jermyn St to shop.

Just C&J? If others then I would recommend Carmina, Edward Green, and Anatomica for interesting Aldens. There is no centralized area for men's shoe shopping though so you'll have to do a bit of traveling.

I'm looking for stores that sell shoes that I can't easily find in the US. Santoni, Weston, or unknown Italian brands. Are there any streets that would have boutiques with variety?

There are two C&J shops.  The one north of the river is bigger.  Also, check out Upper Shoes.

Hi guys. Small sizing question. I have a 7.5 UK in most C&J-shoes (348, 363) but size up half a size for the Coniston (325-last) to compensate for the shorter length. 

 

Now I would like to buy an oxford with more toe room then on the 348 or 363 last and I have my eye on the new Connaught in dark brown leather. think I should probably size up half a size to UK8 to compensate for it's shorter length compared to 363/348 lasts. 

 

Somebody who ha shoes on both 348/363 last and 236-last (like the Connaught)? Do you size up half a size for the 236-last?

 

Thx!

I just cleaned these with leather soap and water. Usually it requires a bit of Saphir Decapant, but not this time fortunately.

Then its just saphir dyes, my own blends of colors...6 of them.

Weston is on the Champs Élysées. Right hand side as you go towards the Arc de Triomphe.

C&J, John Lobb & Edward Green stores all within 5 minute walking distance of each other (Boulevard Raspail, Boulevard Saint Germain). Near them is also a great high end shopping centre (le Bon Marche) with various high end shoe brands. The larger C&J store is just off Place de la madeleine.

Lingfield... 

 

Anyone seen, tried on or owners of this fine Chelsea on 348?

Any thoughts on the Autumn/Winter collection? The Galway looks pretty fantastic, very versatile with some different laces.
