Off topic, but are those cobalt weft PBJ's? Great taste!

a) no huge preference, although I have some concern 5+3 would look unbalanced.
b) does non-contrast mean black, gunmetal, or antique brass? There's a big difference between them and I can make a case for each (black and gunmetal look great with blue, antique brass goes better with antique edge).
I would go with antique brass, which really should look great with the antique edges. Thanks for your vote!Quote:
Thanks. Yours is the only hard preference so far, so I think you're steering the majorityQuote:
Great, thanks!Quote:Originally Posted by devastitis
a) 4+4 is fine. 5+4 would have been ideal for me, but it's not possible on the Dundees.
b) I originally joined this with the hope to get brass speed hooks, as the contrast would pop very nicely, like a navy Dundee version of the Alden Parajumpers. But if majority votes for gunmetal, I'd be okay with that.
To my mind the Dundees have a different aesthetic to the Alden parajumpers, but I can see what you're saying. THe vote as of now is between contrast and non-contrast hardware. Gunmetal is one of the choices for non-contrast hardware. I prefer to go with antique brass. Anyway, thanks for your vote!post #5388 of 69049/16/16 at 5:30pmpost #5389 of 69049/16/16 at 6:57pmpost #5390 of 69049/16/16 at 7:17pmQuote:Originally Posted by Churchill W
I thought it was 1.5x the price as a general rule. Is that not the case if you do it from C&J UK?
On a side note, I wish C&J did something between Whiskey and #8 or is it just because the majority of people in this thread are lusting after Whiskey I may check out Carmina for that type of offering.
C&J is not doing cognac shell anymore?Quote:Originally Posted by wdahab
Also made by Dainite, a lot beefier, and will last a lot longer before needing a resole. I have the EG Galway on it, and after a really hard season of wearing them I'd say they still have 4 more years of wear, even on the heel. Better for my general purpose, which is to be an actual boot, since I live in a land of mud and snow, but also business meetings.
I'm fairly certain that it's less than 50% markup, but I can't remember. I think it's more like 20-30%. Either way, at the group price, these are a steal. At the individual price, even 50% markup, I'd pay that if I just saw them on the market. I don't really think I'm going to get to 12 pairs on this, frankly. But maybe I'm wrong.
There's also a whiskey galway boot GMTO on Gentlemen's footwear going on, but it's not full whiskey (using grain on the upper) and is $2500. Now, that'll be an amazing boot, but I think that I'd rather a full whiskey version, and even more so if I get it in the sub $1000 range.
My C&J for BB captoe boots are 6 years old and on their original Dainite soles. And I'm a 230 pound guy who only has a 5 or 6 shoe rotation. In that time I've had loafers go through at least 3 heels. That's a long way of saying Dainite is incredibly hard wearingpost #5391 of 69049/16/16 at 8:58pmpost #5392 of 69049/20/16 at 4:46amQuote:Originally Posted by BurntPockets
Little late, but wanted to thank everyone for making the Navy Shell Camberley and Lindrick GMTOs so smooth; these were the 2 very first GMTOs I've ever organized (surprisingly did them back to back).
Seems like most already posted close ups of the Navy Shell Camberleys, so here's a photo of it in action in the concrete jungle from my instagram. There's also a shout out to the SF, reddit, and C&J teams for the Lindrick GMTO in an older IG post (the photo is already floating around this thread). Looking forward to future projects with you guys
I've said it before but the Camberley was the smoothest GMTO I've ever been a part of.
I was a bit disappointed that they missed the antique welt, but it's not the end of the world.
I'm a bit annoyed that I passed on the lindrick order as my G&G thorpes have been delayed from skoak.post #5393 of 69049/20/16 at 8:49ampost #5394 of 69049/20/16 at 9:12amQuote:
In C&J parlance, dark brown = Horween cognac. But, they do add additional finish to it at the factory to make the colors more uniform.post #5395 of 69049/20/16 at 9:20amQuote:
Really? I feel like the dark brown I've seen (Lindricks, Dundees, etc) look a lot darker than what I picture cognac being. Maybe that's due to whatever finishing they add?post #5396 of 69049/20/16 at 9:26ampost #5397 of 69049/20/16 at 9:38amQuote:
Yes it's due to finishing. The dark cognac from Horween is not exactly uniform, and for better or worse, C&J applies finish to try to make it so. All my dark brown shell C&J has arrived with enough dark brown finish to soil one or two rags.post #5398 of 69049/20/16 at 9:41ampost #5399 of 69049/20/16 at 9:53amQuote:
Carmina's "cognac" does not necessarily come from Horween (dark) cognac. But C&Js dark brown does.post #5400 of 69049/20/16 at 12:28pm
Honestly there is so much variation in cognac and dark cognac and brown that I think of them as one color that may look wildly different from batch to batch . Even in the same "batch" cognac can look very different than cognacReturn Home
