    Just the label. It's actually the Cardigan 4...so this is the fourth iteration?? I think someone posted the shell version awhile back.

    C&J likes to use place names for their products. Not sure why this would be named after a town in south Wales though :-/

    Having doubts about keeping my Islays at 13E. Will decide over the next week. Either they go on Ebay for sale as New (w/ box) or I keep them.

    The fit is good especially with thick socks or an insole as discussed on the last page; just not sure I can get past them being 0.5 to 0.75" longer than all of my other US 13's. The UK 11.5 / US 12.5 size would be perfect I feel, but Paul Stuart doesn't carry this half size and wasn't part of the sale. Doesn't appear Barney's carries the 12.5 size either. Doubt I'd purchase 12.5 at full value if I sell the 13s.

    Decisions, decisions. Man I love the look of these boots. Katch worded it perfectly a week ago, "The last is not slim or tapered and these should not be confused with dressy boots. These can be your coolest sh-t kickers and also cleaned up to go out. I really like them"

    Wear them with thick socks and maybe put a thicker insole in. They are gorgeous. I went to bloomimgdales and saw too boot dbl
    Monks for 425. These are 3x the shoe. If you can make them work do it.

    That may be me being bitter that i ordered them and they canceled my order because they didnt have my size in stock

    George Grenville was the British PM that tried to fleece the American colonists with illegal (direct/revenue-raising) taxes following the French and Indian War. Most famous for his Stamp Act, this measure galvanized American momentum and unity leading to its ultimate decision to separate from Britain. Beautiful shoe for a not-so-popular figure in US history... [​IMG]

    OK, places and people?

    Interested to see what the forthcoming sales will bring.

    Nah, that was a Grenville but not the one in question.

    More importantly I'm in for boots or the Clarendon. Not holding my breath for a deal!

    Check first whether it's actually nubuck or rough-out as they've previously referred to that leather as the latter.

    No idea about nubuck, but some people treat rough-out with Sno-seal or dubbin of some other form. I haven't bothered with my rough-out Snowdons as I like the lighter shades of brown that come through as the creases form in the rough-out - dubbin will darken these although add an extra layer of water resistance.

    Nice boots congratulations but is called rough-out leather if I am not wrong as I tried these at the Purdey shop myself a while ago!

    Farhad,
    you are right. I would have preferred a ridgeway soles with these but I will not complain.

    Pm me also if you're considering letting them go. I tried on the 12UK in london, which I think is what you have, and it fit me well. Remember though that the boots are generous fitting.

    Also, when I was in London, they didn't have the boot in and F width (wider than standard), but they did have 11.5E UK. If you really loved them, and 12UK isn't the right fit, you should consider ordering right from C&J. It's gonna be a bit more expensive sure, but over the life of the boot (hopefully 10+ years) it won't make a huge difference. You'll wear them more and like them more if they fit.

    ^Much appreciated. My mistake on the model, these are the Lindrick grain, not Marlow.

    I'm wondering between the Lonsdale and the Audley for my formal black oxford, the different is the last only as far as I know (363 vs 337). Can anyone please give me some suggestion?
