You're lucky. I ordered them in the C&J Brussels store and they don't have the dark brown calf ones in stock (only the black ones). So they'll have to come from the C&J factory. I guess it will take a month or so.

Been on the fence on either the dark brown or suede Tetbury... anyone have pics of these boots after a few wears? I need something for rainy and light snowy days.

The waxed nubuck and long, long vamp can result in some unsightly creasing with the dark brown Tetbury's, I think. See below (not mine)

Mine definitely doesn't crease as much

Here are my brown Tetburys (I happen to have worn them today; you can see a small scuff on the left big toe):

I've had them for about 3-5 years and love them so much, I just bought a pair of black nubuck (I was torn between black and suede). They are my go-to business casual boots in rain and light snow. I don't think they're the waxed nubuck, but I forget the name C&J used. I do polish them with red periodically and also use Saphir's "mahagoni" colored cream to maintain the reddish tint. I think the red gives the color more depth (Several places actually look like wood grain).

Didn't get a chance to take proper pictures of my Granada until now. They are super comfy

Looking forward to wearing these in summer. Anyone guess the last?

I thought 337 as they are made under license to the famous McAfee firm.

No shots of the soles to see if they are hand grades until they arrive.

Good afternoon,

 

 

As a relatively poor university student, my funds are quite limited. This means that I cannot spend a fortune on a pair of boots, but I think that it isn't something you can really save on. 

 

Could somebody please inform me whether the price list below is valid for C&J retail stores in London? The model I am interested in is Chelsea 8 in Black wax calf.

Thank you,

CJ

Unfortunately, I do believe that things may have increased by ~5% since that list came out.

post #4994 of 6700
I bought a Chelsea 3 like 4 years ago at pediwear and the price was like 270 pounds, now its 370. Dont you agree that this price increase in C&J is a bit unusual, other brans seem to hold their prices for longer periods. Dont you think 370 pounds for C&J benchgrade is becoming a bit overpriced?

regards
post #4995 of 6700

Yes, indeed, I have to admit that as more time passes by, I've been getting these second thought about C&J. It seems that the bench grade models are 'a bit' overpriced compared to other manufacturers. 

 

Therefore, can you please recommend me anything else besides Chelsea 8 by C&J? Most of the time I would wear them in a pretty casual manner. Not really intending to wear them with a suit or anything.
