Nice pick up! Thought about picking those up but I already have a few whole cuts and I still want to eventually get the Weymouth.

I really like the 363 last!

Hey SF,

Figured I'd start here before staring own thread. I'm going to be at the Crockett & Jones NYC boutique in a week and have a few genealr questions.

I'm looking for a conservative pair of Burgundy colored shoes. Could be Oxfords. I suppose can be cordovan shell as well. But main thing is the color, I need a pair. What kind of prices can I expect? Lowest?

Also, do they have sales or, cough-cough big clearance items?

Thanks all.

Far cheaper to order from the UK. You're probably looking for the Arden.

The 348 is definitely narrower and has a soft-square toe... but much longer

post #3085 of 8181
is there any shoe tree that works well with the 348 last? in the price range of woodlores, cedarville et.

Yesterday I purchased a pair of Conistons in the Jermyn Street main shop in London. 

I've noticed today that there is a slightly untidy join and some residue on the sole of one shoe.

Would you guys consider this a defect worthy of an exchange?

Not a defect.

I would say your best bet is C&J in NYC since they get them directly. However, it seems that all of Jimmy B's shoes from the last movie are in high demand. I have to say I do find this trend interesting since I've had my pair for a number of years (including the Alex).

Ironically I've always wanted the Tetbury (even prior to the movie) because it looks like a great rainy day boot for the fall.

Very normal. I guess once you need to re-sole you could always ask them to re-welt it too.
