Prince Charles visits the Crockett & Jones factory

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Crockett & Jones has been getting excellent publicity in recent years. Not because they pay for it, because they earn it.
They have maintained their standard classics and continue to add new lines offering new colors and color combinations.
This while maintaining the quality and prestige of their brand.
IMO C&J is one of the best values in Mens shoes today.
Also, their new Ladies line, I think is destined to be a hit. Not for the L.B. or J.C. wearers but for the Women that want be comfortable wearing a much better made shoe in a classic style that will hold up way longer, at way less the price.

I saw this posted somewhere else and there was speculation that C&J was going after a royal warrant. According to this, Tricker's has it now:

Any thoughts?

Why always a negative spin?
How about if the Brits have pride in a successful company that continues achieve and grow.
No different then Allen Edmond's is proud to provide the shoes of a U.S. Pres. on the day he is sworn in.
I don't know anything about "Royal Warrants" but I do know about shoes.

C&J has been doing an excellent job getting very well made shoes to the consumer at a very fair price.

Yes, I'm actually bummed they're phasing out my favorite RTW last. (317) If money was no object, I'd get a whole bunch of those in MTO.

Country shoes. Tricker's have bespoke operation. C&J only has French bespoke operation, not kosher.

I have the Lobbs, EG's and Cleverly's - though my Lowndes are my 'go to' Shoes and I have to agree with the value for money comments.

I have 6 pairs of C&J and a pair of Hallams on the way from the Edwards sale. Definitely agree that they are the best value for the $$$, especially when they can be had for less that $400 from Barneys, Edwards, etc. I love the Cliffords I kopped from the Barneys sale in Dec.! Handgrade C&Js for the price of AEs!
