I know there is a sales thread but for some reason I cannot find it. Can someone provide the link to it please?

Which sales thread?

Are C&J Connaught worth it at full retail from their NYC store?  In need of a new pair of oxfords ASAP for this Sunday.  Budget is up to $700.  Thanks.

It might be cheaper buying from one of the London stores. Depends on whether you are willing to wait. I hate paying full price.

Unfortunately, I need them for Monday AM.  When you say one of the London stores, do you mean online shops, or the C&J store?  Thanks again.

 

I searched on the forums but couldn't find a better alternative at the ~$500+ price range that was readily available.

These are seconds from shoebank, and so I know that there will be flaws, but these seem kinda bad. Keep or send back?

Living in Canada I am wondering if it is okay to wear a parka with wool trousers? I know it's not optimal but if it's -20 and snowing outside doesn't optimal get thrown away?

I usually wear wool trousers and a button down shirt to work.

I meant the C&J brick & mortar store. If you call them they are happy to take an order and ship you shoes.

I've done it before if it got really cold, which is like 20 degrees Farenheit for my NY blood.

No matter what style might dictate, reality always has the last word.

If it's -20 degrees (C. or F.) and snowing, and you're going to be outdoors for any non-trivial length of time, wear whatever will best protect you from the cold. If that means a parka, then wear a parka.

Normally, even when it's very cold - admittedly, not 20 deg. below, but still well below freezing - I can get by with a full length cashmere topcoat over my suit, maybe a pair of lined leather gloves, and once in a while a scarf. Usually not a hat, but I do have a pair of earmuffs which I'm not afraid to put on when it's truly, truly cold and windy. However, in really brutally cold weather, I'm seldom outdoors for more than a very brief time, like to walk from the parking lot to the entrance to the building across the street. If I had to, say, walk 6 blocks from the bus stop to my destination, maybe I'd consider wearing a parka. Gotta tell you though, a full length wool coat over a suit is pretty warm. And it's longer than the typical parka, which isn't all that bad a thing.

Any idea what causes Shell to look like this?

 

post #31601 of 33197

is that only in that front toe area? Looks like it doesn't continue down the inside but any other areas like that?

No. Just the place pictured and only on one shoe.

I bought some brown Loundes the other day. The first day I wore them in the rain. I know. I know. Bad move, but I live in England. After one day, the soles look like this...

It looks like at the toe the stitching was most reached. This looks really bad to me. Am I off?

That's quite extreme for a day's wear, but not inconceivable. If you do that to leather soles, though, it might be worth getting steel taps added since otherwise you'll chew through the toe long before the rest of the sole has reached the end of its working life.

Can someone remind me please-- what is a good "rule" on how much I can have jacket sleeves LENGTHENED on one with functional buttonholes? I'd like to buy this suit in a size short, but I suspect the sleeves are a bit too short. What's the max and still look good?
