Unless there's a sale at Robert Old then just order them direct from the C&J store on Jermyn St.

How fast do you need them?

If you can wait, I recommend ordering them from Edward of Manchester during their next sale. I paid 240 pounds after sale discount and Vat exclusion.

I was hoping to have these stateside before New Years, that may not be an option though.

Does anybody know a stockist that has the Tetburys in? Or does anyone have a reliable C&J salesperson they use often at one of the stores? I thought I had a reliable one whom I've already ordered a pair of Skyes through, but I haven't heard back recently about my recent inquiries.

Thanks for any help!

 

Ask for Mark, Jo or Lin at the Birmingham shop on 00441212367351 and say that Ben Lucas pointed you in their direction. Their service is faultless and they will be less hectic than the London stores at this time of year.

Thank you for your advice. Robert Old's pricing wasn't that stand out, but free shipping would have put 30 pounds back in my pocket and I was excited that they seemed to have the booots in stock. But I do prefer to work directly with the manufacturing company when possible. Thanks again.

I did think of purchasing through them when their site showed the Tetburys in stock last week, but after doing a bit of reading about them on the forum it seems some people have been waiting on their C&Js since February, I really don't have that kind of patience.

Thanks Brummie! I sent them an email, the location I'm at for work I would only be able to use my office line and if asked I wouldn't be able to explain why I made calls to the UK. Right after I sent off my email to the Birmingham shop I received a response from the Jermyn St. location. I'll wait to see if I get a response from Birmingham before pulling the trigger. I am looking for a good long term retailer/customer relationship and it sounds like the Birmingham shop would suit me well.

Also, my wife stopped by UPS Wednesday to pick up the Purdey 325 lasted Islay style boots. I'm looking forward to trying them on when I get back to town in 11 days. Thank for posting the link to those!

Does it matter which location on Jermyn St?

Thanks!!

I've finally joined the club. I've wanted the Islay for a while as I have no dress shoes/boots without a leather sole. I must admit that it was Skyfall that pushed me over the edge. It is Bond, after all.

 

We all know what they look like, but these are unique in that they are mine :D. I checked off a handful of "firsts" with these. First English made footwear, scotch grain, dainite sole and the first calfskin footwear in a very long time. Virtually all of my workday footwear is US made shell, Alden & AE.

 

I'm very surprised at the dainite. It's grippier than I thought (judging from just a few walks with snow on the ground). While I'm fine wearing shell in rain and snow, I always hated how long it took leather soles to dry.

 

Couldn't be happier with fit and finish. Thanks to all of you for sharing your information over the years, particularly Crat and CrashTestBrummie, two Brits who's images were especially inspiring here and at Sufu.

Thanks t. I ordered from Barneys. I've had a few hundred dollar credit there since last year so it was an easy decision. I tried to get them last year this time but they sold out of my size during the holidays. I started looking at them again once the third significant snowfall hit Boston this year.

Great boots, Patrick B.  I had no idea that I needed a pair until I saw your pictures.  How are you going to care for the scotch grain?

Christ on a bike those are nice! Your photos make them look so much better than on either the C&J or Barney's websites. I'm getting very, very jelly right now.

Thanks guys!

 

For care, I'm sticking with a minimalist approach. As much as I enjoy shoe care and appreciate the mirror shine, these will see just occasional conditioner and a bit of wax polish for protection. I'm very cognizant of salt so I wipe down with a damp cloth after each use, hit them with a brush and tree them. I think they look best with a clean, matte finish.

One more in the wet and snowy wild.

Never really thought about navy leather boots before I saw the Navy Scotch Grain Consiton earlier today in the C&J newsletter. Still not sure what I'd wear them with, but they look pretty nice imo.


post #5339 of 7548
I dig them. I don't how I'd wear them, either, but I am so drawn to navy boots lately.
post #5340 of 7548
I agree. Went to the Factory today and some blue beauts (180GBP) but not my size so anguished decision taken out of my hands!

Instead picked up Black grain boots and espresso suede Hallam total cost 300GPB, delighted.

Pics to follow

PS Apparently they are reviewing Factory shop prices in new year as they have been 150-180GBP forever whilst there main prices have risen butbut.gif
