    Quick question, noticed on my handgrades have a full leather insole in black. Is that also the case for all bench grade C&J's? Was looking at some Loakes yesterday and noticed that none of their 1880's had a full leather insole, only the heal part.

    I have a hard time telling between sock liner and insole, but I think my benchgrade C&Js only have a half sock liner and the insole under that.

    I think that was the case with some Loakes I was looking at last weekend. Half liner over the heel part and the rest was the leather insole, just doesn't feel the same when I tried them on, felt very hard under my feet compared to my C&Js.

    At ups awaiting package to come out. This is great, had to get a money order to pay the brokerage fee of $37, which I luckily obtained at a local gas station, with banks closed.

    Now here awaiting for the box to get here from some warehouse on premise. My wife all the while is at home wondering what the hell I've gotten myself into and plotting her next shopping spree.

    And they are here!

    I was charged $47. They don't accept credit cards, hence folks above needing money order.
