It seems they removed the link?

 

Do all Herringbone stores in the Sydney CBD carry C&J?

Not sure if you know, but Herringbone is having a 30% of sale on shoes. This brings C&J shoes down to $385-455 depending on model.

Looks like someone realised they screwed up and took down the site.

ovlov,

I realise that the Leather Soul sale might offer some good bargains, but given that you only have a few pairs of good shoes, if I were you, I'd hold off on purchasing a pair of navy shoes and instead get something a bit more classic and flexible - chocolate brown or mid-brown for preference, given that you've got a pair of black shoes already.


Stiva and others,

At the risk of contradicting what I've just said to ovlov, my father was a fan of navy shoes and he used to wear a pair with a navy suit when he was younger (this is well before I was born). I remember, as a teenager, being horrified when my father told me that he wore navy shoes when he was younger as, at the time, I thought that business shoes should only be black or brown.

However, my father said that you wore black shoes with a charcoal suit, dark navy shoes with a navy suit, and brown shoes with a brown suit. His view was that if women can have differently-coloured shoes for different outfits, then why shouldn't men?

Always with the sobering advice. I guessed you would say something like that and did consider it. However I am primarily looking to fill the fill a casual gap in my wardrobe (my only casual shoe atm is a beat up old pair of Merrels) and there are very few brown shoes around that I like all that much; your Asquiths were pretty much the only exception and if I had been able to try them on first or could find find a F pair anywhere for under $500 I'd jump at them. I'm looking to get a pair of burgundy or oxblood shoes as well for my next purchase, however once again I haven't been able to find anything I like all that much in the sub-500 range.

Thanks chaps, no they aren't EG, though I'd likely get more kudos if I said they were!

They are, in fact, Tricker's.

All the crazy sales on at the moment.

No purchase club means it's actually hard work not looking.

Really? Very nice looking shoes to be honest.

Maybe JM will get his wish. The sales staff is recommending I go with size 10 over 10.5 as the Cleverly last is much wider than that EG 82. But they only have Antique Tan in that size. Also a nice colour but idk if it would go with my brown and khakis...
