    Are you referring to my post? If so, see: http://www.shipton-usa.com/crockett-and-jones.html. It appears they have several makeups made by C&J. I recall seeing posts on SF and AAAC about C&J making S&H shoes as well.

    Random Q: Has the quality of C&J remained steady over the last few years?

    Hello. Have a sizing question. Have had problems with sizing in Aldens, so am not quite sure how to go in C&J. Just received the RL Marlow shortwings that I ordered and am not sure if they're too small. The 8 that I had tried on in-store seemed a bit big, so we ordered a 7.5. Heel feels snug, big toes have plenty of room, and the area in the laces on the vamp has the panels close, but not quite touching (all of which is good). However, the little toe on each foot is a little snug, moreso than any shoe I've owned. I'd call it snug, or a little tight, but not painful. I'm just concerned that with a little wear either the toes will be abused or that they will wear through the lining of the shoe.

    What do you think? Will the breaking in of the double-leather sole create more room for the little toe on each foot? I'm very hesitant to work from my shoe store measurement or the size of my barrie PTBs, because those seem a little extra roomy. Would it help to say that I tried on a forest lasted 7.5 in the carmina shoes at Epaulet which fit well? Thanks in advance for the help. I'll try the mac wear-them-on-the-carpet method at first and try to figure this out.

    Order an 8 too. Try them both on and keep the one that fits best.

    I went TTS for my Marlows and they fit well.

    Yeah, I've been asking myself the same question. Is it Pommadier or Renovateur that he uses?

    I have a few C&J's in Beechnut Burnished Calf. For those of you out there with said color, what are some belt options you go with? I have a few AE belts (chili) that work just fine, but was giving some thought to picking up another one. Thanks.

    Just received a pair of Hallam black calf, but noticed a small dent on one of the shoes, se picture below. Is it something I should live with? Is polish going to help?

    Received them promptly a couple of weeks back before leaving on trips. Finally got an opportunity to sport them today - inaugural wearing:

    Will do a proper comparison with my Marlow's in the not too distant future.
