    What's the best place to buy handgrade these days, just checked Beaumont at the NYC store, like it, but at that price might as well hunt deal from EG or GG.

    Try the U.K sites: Pediwear.co.uk, Bodileys, Robert Old, etc. The USD is strong over sterling right now.

    I hear you - but I'm not sure there's a huge number of EG or GG deals to be found these days.

    Anyone kindly have any pictures of Skye Cordovan please? Been meaning to buy a pair for a while buy I'm not sure if their tip is as sharp as that of Northcotes? I have a pair of the latter and love them but am not very keen on the sharpness of the tip since it tends to bump easily and split. I've also noticed that C&J has got rid of the Skye 2?

    Pediwear came back

    "we are only able to obtain styles as listed in the C&J UK Stock Collections catalogue, and unfortunately the Beaumont does not form part of this limited catalogue"

    oh well...

    +1, plus Oakroom from Taipei had a sale not too long ago, seems to be easier to find deals on EG these days...

    I'm jealous that you're somewhere that you are still wearing flannel. Here in central Florida, I was in a cotton-linen shirt yesterday...

    But I digress, nice shoes. :)
