I think I am going to buy the Jodphurs for the fall. Anyone have experience with them? Are they sufficiently sleek?

I am looking to get a pair of the womens' Brampton brogue for a friend - is there any more cost-effective way of doing so than going directly via C&J mail-order?

I seem to recall that years ago there were some helpful international retailers (I am based in Australia).

Thanks!

Check out Plal, and Pediwear. Pediwear might be able to special order it for you.

I wouldn't say the 341 is the sleekest last but the they have a nice balance to me. Honestly if you want a nice dress shoe-like jodphur look at the Alfred Sargent Alex

They have a sort of spade sole. I am wondering what year this design dates from?

Are those shell? In any case, what a find!

I was just going by the pictures - the leather just looks waxy and lustrous to me. I'm no expert., though...

But great shoes either way.

Can anyone tell me if these are the same boots? (apart from color) I think C&J makes most if not all of New and Lingwood's shoes.

Does anybody have any experience with the 325 last? I am specifically looking to pull the trigger on a pair of cavendish and wondering if I should size the same as my 341s (Westfield)

IME they run a 1/2 size big. I'm a 10UK in 341, and a 10.5US in 325 (RL Darlton)

I'm eyeing these scotchgrain C&J ghillies sold by the French company Upper Shoes.

C&J ghillies.jpg

I'm an average US 10.5 & have so far been a UK 9.5 in all of the mid-priced RTW English shoes I've bought (e.g. AS, Cheaney, etc.). My only euro-size footwear are sandals (Birkenstock & Mephisto), all in 44. The Upper Shoes website shows 44 as the equivalent of UK 10. Can anyone comment on that conversion? Should I see if they can order a 43.5, or take my chances on the 44?
