The C&J handgrade Weymouth is a shoe I've been lusting after for quite a while koji
koji, you're in NYC, aren't you? Do you know of any stores there that stock the Weymouths? kevin

Thanks for the lead, norcal; I'll have to give them a call.

I saw the Weymouth's in Barney's today, in black, dark brown, and tan. There weren't handgrades though, the price was $575. If I remember the handgrade model is around $1400? Oh, and my most comfortable shoes are my Foot-Joy Classic, black wing-tip, golf shoes.

Every pair of Aldens I own (20) especially my shell cordavan penny loafers (15 years old&#33, my Zelli Croc Mocs, and an incredibly comfortable pair of cheap BIT driving mocs from Private Label Footwear.

$575 is right for C&J handgrades - Weymouths are definitely handgrade. Maybe Santoni handmades go for $1400 but even that's pushing it.

Cool. Looks like a trip to Barney's is in my (hopefully, near) future...

The C&J Handgrade Weymouths in dark brown in the new catalogue look splendid.  But as I understand it, they don't make them for flat and wide feet like mine   Why doesn't C&J create handgrades in wider fittings???  I am sure I am NOT the only shoe lover who has a problem....

Handmade shoes aside: the most comfortable RTW = a wide square-toe lace-up black Byblos (one of the better byblos around). l have narrow ankles and these fit gr8 m8. Prada lace ups (various models). Johnny Moke London shoes. They took a year to break in (they caused massive pain, blisters), but they fit really well now, are comfy and will last for donkeys years. l hear Aldo Brue have very comfy shoes.

What he said, heh. Barney's actually has quite a nice collection of C&J handgrades. koji

The C&J Whitehall plain captoe comes in an F fitting (the equvalent to an American E). The Berkeley model also came in an F fitting but appears to be discontinued (but I think that PLAL still may have these in stock). These are wider (but not extra-wide) fittings.

I'm wearing my brown Weymouths today (the fifth wearing) and they are truly comfortable - something about the last just hugs your feet like a pair of slippers. They look very sharp with a navy suit. I could walk all day in my Vass cordovans...

Now I finally realized I had not converted the price on the Plal website, therein lies the discrepancy. And, Wow, they are so much cheaper ($395) there, than at Barney's ($575).
