post #6931 of 7908

This is my pair of C&J Handgrade Courtenay's in Dark Brown Antique Calf on the 363 Last. You can see from the aerial shot the long almond shaped toe of this last.

 

In regards to polishing routines...these shoes have just been polished by me tonight...after I wore them today. I vigorously brushed them...using a cloth wrapped around my fingers...applied a thin layer of saphir m'dor dark brown wax polish...i let them sit a bit....i brushed vigorously again...and then i applied a mirror shine to the toes using the same dark brown wax polish.

 

You can see that the antique calf has developed a very nice patina and character over time from the wax polishing...and I have had this shoe about 1 year...The Courtenay was a brand new model last spring (feb/march)...and I was one of the first people to jump on it when the Courtenay arrived in the C&J NYC showroom.

 

The Courtenay may very well be my favorite pair of C&J oxfords...

Do any of you know where I can find a pair of C&J lasted trees in the 325 last? I remember someone saying their entry level tree was lasted on the 325?

I like the 363 too though it is just a tad 'deep' in the front for me.

Here's a pair that have never seen any neutral polish in their life.

I hear ya.... I would love to see a suggestion if you have a pair in mind. Found an alden for the the same price but was not thrilled about the shape as much

How about Sanders?

Yup. Although I love EG, I do enjoy how C&J's HG dark brown ages.

Farhad19620: what boots are those? They don't match anything I see on the C&J site.
