Crocket & Jones shoe trees - Page 3

post #31 of 35
Slightly off topic but I thought it would be of interest to some of you.

I visited the C&J Jermyn street store last Saturday and was told that there is going to a price increase on 5th March. I'm not sure whether this applied to shoe trees as well.

If you really want specific model lasted trees (like 348/358 etc) I'm sure you could do some sort of group buy and get Springline to oblige.
Might have to be a bit careful how you approach the subject as you will effectively be asking them to copy a commercial last without involving C+J.
They might refuse such a request but might suggest a way round it...

Or get a US last/tree manufacturer with a 3D scanner to scan your shoe and produce trees from it. Again a group buy will bring the unit costs down .

Well the C&J shoes in Dublin have increased in price during the last couple of weeks. C&J conistons that were €395 2 weeks ago are now €425. I wasn't sure if the increase was due to the euro weakening against sterling but if Jermyn st mentioned a price increase then maybe thats the reason.

sorry for bumping an old thread but it was the best one I found on Crockett and Jones shoe trees. I have a pair of Tetbury boots and have not been very happy with my standard Woodlore shoe trees given the nature of the Tetbury to crease along the vamp.

after reading up on the differences I called up the C&J NYC store to ask about ordering the "luxury" shoe tree. I was told they're currently $170 which I thought was pretty crazy. Barney's sells the Tetbury for $650 so that's over 25% of the price of the shoe (and buying from any reputable British retailer more like 40%!)

the standard C&J tree is available from several British retailers for about $60 so I figured the "luxury" trees might be ~$100.

any thoughts on a better way to buy or a reasonable 348 last tree?
