 Well sod's law played its role here. I phoned the shop and unfortunately the last pair were taken. No more stock in the factory either. uhoh.gif

 

So, I'm back in the market for a pair. I know that they are lesser in quality (compared to Harlech) but I quite like Northcote and Skye.

Took some photos of shoes today, Clifford and two cleverleys rtw, still can't decide if I want to keep Clifford though

Clifford is the c&J? I'm a big fan. Great looking wingtip and on the 341. What's not to like?

The saddle though... Couldn't wear it

I think the Clifford is on the 337. Nice shoes and thinking between them or the Dover 2 for a nice spring shoe; heel fo the 337 is just a tad wide for me.

Alex for today:

Ordered a pair of Swansea and a pair of Northcote today from C&J store. cheers.gifWill arrive on Friday by UPS. Both pairs are the dark brown version. Have to order a jar or two of Saphir pommadier cream (dark brown of course). Might get a polishing brush and Chamois whilst I'm at it.
 

 

Actually, does anyone know which one is best for these shoes: the medium brown or the dark brown Saphir cream?

Could I get away with the same thing on a suede leather 337, such as this? http://www.fransboonestore.com/store/Brands-Men/crockett-amp-jones-x-fransboone/re-stocked-crockett-amp-jones-for-fransboonestore-seymour

I wear 9D US, and bought these exact Seymours in size 8E UK. They felt pretty narrow, and I worried that I had screwed up my first C&J 337 purchase, but on repeated wearings they've stretched out across the ball of my foot and are quite comfortable now.

After how many wear ?
post #3867 of 7458
About 10 daylong wearings. In general, I find suede stretches more, and quicker, than calf. I have a pair of Alden unlined tan suede chukkas on the Leydon last that were very snug at first but have stretched out quite a bit and are super comfortable now.

Question:

I was at the J.Crew Men's Shop here in Boston and I tried on a pair of classic of Connaughts in Black (236 last). Here's what the look like:



At the same shop they had a pair of Alfred Sargents and I noticed the stitching was different, as the piece (sorry, don't know the term) wraps around the side. Is there a term for these different styles? I was under the impression they were just oxfords/balmorals with a captoe. The J.Crew one is labeled as a "tux" shoe at their store, it's just black calf though.

post #3869 of 7458
david3558, my understanding of the terminology is that the two shoes pictured in your post are both oxfords (i.e. they have closed lacing, unlike a derby). The bottom shoe, with its horizontal side seam, is a balmoral, also known as a "galosh oxford." The problem is that term "balmoral," which is a specific subset of "oxford," has been too broadly applied to oxfords in general, and the two terms have become synonymous for many people. In traditional usage, balmoral only applies to shoes with the horizontal side seam like the alfred Sargent pictured above.
