Cheers! Just re-waxed the Conistons so they're a little dull for now, but will buff up again nicely after a couple more wears.

Sure, especially with a grey suit, like James Bond does in Skyfall the movie.

Do you have any more info on the longwing?

I'm saying no; not because of the model as such, but mainly because of the rubber sole.

In a MTO program, he could ask for a leather sole if he wanted.

It's a model that they made a while ago for Fife Footwear, who may or may not be related to Hoggs of Fife, Scottish countrywear specialists who've since sold footwear by Sargent and Cheaney, amongst others.

 

I took it into the local C&J shop to show them and they surprisingly had the same model in the back of the shop, which the factory had sent them a while ago in response to an enquiry regarding a MTO longwing model - to show the customer that they could do them, I suppose.

 

I think they said that it was made on the 240 last, although I might need to double-check that.

 

As far as thirty quid eBay finds go, it's a pretty good one...

 

 

The Hastings brogue is a model made for the gun-makers Purdey, who still carry other C&J models that aren't standard catalogue designs.

Thanks for the info. I'm slightly jealous on the C&J longwing.. Guess I'll just have to keep an eye on the bay

It looks like C&J still do Fife longwings

Are they worth 160pounds? I would like to kop a pair of longwings but pebble brown is not what I was looking for.

I'm pretty certain that they're by Cheaney, who make some shoes for Hoggs of Fife these days. Plus, that style is 'Kenmore' and not 'Argyll' and the medallion is a little different.

 

Worth double-checking if nothing else.
