They've even shut down everyone's favorite Southeast Asian discount site. These are truly sad times.

However, for customers willing to wait 8 - 10 weeks for a particular shoe, please advise us accordingly. Furthermore, we will be also placing on our Web Site styles /sizes that become readily available as soon as possible.
Please accept our sincere apologies for the disappointment and inconvenience our action may cause you.

Yup, this has been going on for over a year now at least.

Funny thing is now I have people at my work who never heard of C&J before starting to ''like it'' all after seeing Skyfall I would guess.

 

We will see all kinds of people wearing C&J...

...as opposed to people who find out about it on styleforum?

Didn't 'all kinds of people' wear C&J before? Not sure what you're driving at with this comment.

While most fans are aware of Daniel Craig wearing Tom Ford clothing, Craig insisted on Crockett & Jones shoes.
Here is the press release from their web site:
http://crockettandjones.com/News/Index/James-Bond-Skyfall-Crockett-and-Jones
They will be doing a more elaborate release with videos shortly.
Stay tuned....

Glad to see that Bond's style is finally catching up with mine nod[1].gif. I've been wearing (brown) C&J Tetburys for more than year!

(Unfortunately, this probably means my wait for another pair to show up on ebay is probably in vain)

While I am not privy to C&J strategy it is quite stunning how fast they have recently increased the number of retail outlets in London. Until a few years ago as far as I know they had two shops in the Jermyn Street area and one in the city. All of them pretty small. Then a couple of years they opened a much larger shop in Jermyn Street (there are now three in a 250 m radius) and recently another 'large' shop near Harrods.

 

They seem to be doing something right in terms of marketing as I don't believe the product has changed much quality-wise, while their prices have increased well above inflation rates

 

This trend to open more brand-exclusive shops can be seen across the board in the UK, as both Cheaney and Barker have been doing it in London recently. I assume it has become more attractive to own (if that is indeed the case) the sales channel. rather than rely on third parties.

 

there are probably other SF members that have a deeper insight regarding what is behind this trend...please share.

We are not sure of the rules and regs of companies posting, but please feel free to contact us on admin@crockettandjones.co.uk if there are any problems...

 

It is great that Crockett & Jones have so many customers out there that enjoy discussing our shoes and company history, it is testament to what five generations and great work force have achieved over the years. We will only ever use this user name to reply to incorrect facts as and when they are raised.

 

We can confirm that Crockett & Jones did not pay for product placement in any of the films named in this thread.

This is not a quote from the C&J website, this is a take on a statement that was released to online resellers of our shoes due to production constraints. 100% of our shoes are manufactured at our Northampton factory and we only have a finite amount of production with a responsibility to ensure production to bricks and mortar customers.

Not too surprised given the influence of this forum.

Ohai! I think it's awesome that an established SF darling like C&j's decided to register and participate on the forum.

Of course, it's only a matter of time before SF screws it all up like it normally does and makes them regret it

This is one of the more appealing developments I have seen.
