  • THE SHINE: The natural oils, fats and greases ‘stuffed’ and ‘curried’ in to the leather during the tanning process (as well as its generally thicker, oilier make up compared to that of calfskin) means that Cordovan naturally remains glossy and shiny without adding any polishes or creams. In fact to use anything such as this may actually ruin the surface and cover up its beauty. Buffing with a soft cloth and brushing with a stiff horsehair brush is all that should be needed to maintain the shine. A little polish paste spread very thinly over the shoe may be needed every once in a while.
  • CLEANING: To clean, only a damp cloth should be used. I’ve heard rubbing Cordovan with a very slightly damp cloth and then buffing over and over (for 30 minutes or so) is also another great way to bring out the shine.

How is the fit of the 335 last? It looks wider than the 325, but I can't tell by how much. Curious if its better to stay true or size down.

I might take a look, though.

I just stopped by Isetan Men's clearance, had quite a selection of C&J shoes. The Hand Grade line Last 367 Audley III ( in chestnut and dark brown), as well as a brown suede double monk (also in last 367), were on sale for 63,000 yen ($700), if you want to stop by and take a look.

Use some Saphir Renovateur to get off all the excess wax.

What's the difference between Islay and Ludlow?
post #3222 of 7790
Gents,
Just need your advice. I have just purchased crockett & jones sydney snuff suede in UK 7F. My standard size is UK7.5F for c&j. I could get the UK7.5 but they have a bit of heel slip. I thought the suede would also stretch a little bit more than calf.
Now they are a little bit tight on my left pinky toe. Just a tiny bit(when wearing thin socks). Otherwise the fit is really good. Without socks they are just right. The right shoes fits well with or with-out socks.Have I made the right choice going for 1/2 smaller on them ? Anyone who own this pair could you please comment how much they could stretch after 5-10 wears.
Also I have just stuffed a little bit of rolled paper inside the shoe where its a bit tight and then inserted the shoe tree. In an attempt to spot stretch.
Thanks in advance.

Ludlow is on the 348 I think whereas the Islay is in the 365 (which is more generous). The Ludlow is a dressier version which are good for next week's snow

I don´t own that shoe but all my suede shoes have stretched quite a bit so i think you made the right thing by sizing down. I want my loafers to be really tight when thay are new.
