Just keep them. This will add to the patina and character of the shoes and they will be your own. Nothing should be perfect and nothig stays perfect.

Gotta say, the Crockett & Jones Coniston boot is my favorite.

I wonder if it's possible to get these on sale:

Good morning!
Forgive for my English :-)
 
Who can will prompt.
Length ногb 26.6 cm, the maximum width 9.5 see.
Thus the foot very thin, but sharply extends around a little finger.
Is Crockett in 341 last and width Е.
As a result the size 7 long wore in, everything is smart, but the little finger on the former presses and long to go or even to sit not comfortably. When were new very hard put on.
the size 7.5 didn't wear in, but few times dressed. While sit well, but on Ghana (it seems that a little more and will fall down in a heel) and the little finger all the same draws in. Such impression that after разноски will be slightly big, and here to a little finger will be not comfortable.
It would not be desirable to be mistaken once again. Can take completeness of F? Or last another? What? Or to take in suede?
By the way, about suede. There are such pairs of shoes. It seems also are positioned equally and the description too, but the price strongly differs. It is interesting, why?

Beechnut. Although the photo makes them look a little more orange than they are in real life.

I'd like to buy the "Cavendish" tassel loafer on the 325 last. I was wondering about the fit. I own a pair of CJs on the 236 last, which I really like. I also own a pair on the 341 last, which is much less comfortable in the toe area, as I have rather wide feet.

Does anybody have experience with the 325 last as well as with the 236 last? How do the compare with each other? Many thanks.

Anyone have a side by side shot of the Westbourne (348) and the Belgrave (337)?

I recommend the Belgrave.

Help! I'm still pretty new to quality English footwear, and I'm seriously considering pulling the trigger on a pair of C& J Cottesmores. I've always been partial to boots ( the Beatles did it to me in my formative years), but in brown hues. My best fitting English shoes are a pair of size 11 Tricker's Epsoms (6038 last - 6 fitting). Those feel pretty good, and I wore them for 8 hours my first wearing with no blisters or pain, but I had to fit them with a double thickness foam pad under the tongue to compensate for pretty major heel slippage. I wear a US size 12, usually in a "D" width.

How would the C&J Cottesmores fit? They would be a pretty big stretch price-wise, but them's some nice boots.

As to general advice on the shoes: I'm no spring chicken, but not using a walker yet; I don't work in a highfalutin office, but I try to dress decently, and finally, since I have large-ish feet, would the Cottesmores look odd on me (I'm 6'1"and not as trim as I once was, but not totally gross either)?

I've looked at all kinds of shoes and boots on line, but I just keep coming back to the C & J website.

They are on the 348 last and in a gorgeous Beechnut colour.
When I went to pay I was told they are subs but with no sign of damage so I was chuffed to get the extra 10% off.
But when I got them home I found this mark on the heel.

Now I'm not so chuffed and am expecting to take a trip there again this weekend to exchange them for an unmarked pair.
This isn't a small journey for me, but I'm sure will be worth the effort once I get my unmarked pair home.
What a shop and what a beautiful shopping experience it is whenever I visit there.

 

I have no problem buying Subs so long as they are priced accordingly. Usually the reasons why shoes are marked subs are for small cosmetic blemishes similar to the mark on your shoes. Buying subs are a great way of sampling different lasts and styles without breaking the bank.

 

However did you only get 10% off the full price or were they already discounted and you got an additional 10% mark down?

 

If it's the latter I'd keep them but if the only discount you got was 10% of 320GBP I'd probably return.

 

I would expect to get more than 10% off a pair of Subs.

I would say rare for these to be found at discount. You occassionally see Subs on UK eBay sellers Salsalocut and Sausages234 lists but obviously sizes would be very limited. The above is the C&J regular Scotch grain version but it can also be gotten from James Purdery in a smooth leather version. Don't know if James Purdey ever discount their C&J makeups but it might be worth your while bookmarking their website.

 

BTW that picture is from Why you mad? blog http://why-youmad.com/. Some good stuff on that blog but I do wish the chap who runs could ease off on the smokes. You'll get what I mean if you visit it.

Does anyone own the dark brown shell captoe blucher boot from BB (C&J for BB) - the one that retails for $998? If so, thoughts?

NOTE: It is currently not on the website because of the Friends and Family sale.

Do you mean the #8 / burgundy one? I've never seen a dark brown.

I have a pair and they are awesome. Great shell. Model is essentially the same I believe as the Coniston, pictured a few posts up.
