    Nice boots, the creasing tells me that the seller has worn them more than just a couple of times inside the house as stated in the listing. Doesn't mean that you shouldn't go for them though, just don't be sad if they are not factory fresh.

    Could be good to use this to check your sizing then file a Not as described case on ebay to return this (j/k not recommended)

    Sorry, just discovered what J/K means,

    However I think that this kind of jokes should be avoided anyway, selling on ebay is already not easy.

    Sorry for a sensitive joke - but if the seller is honest about his/her listing, there is absolutely no chance anyone could do that to him.

    As @EnglishShoes pointed out above, the listed pair is nowhere near brand new, why takes such a risk?

    Was at a C&J shop today, and noticed just how beautiful the Hartland chukka boots were in navy blue suede leather! this is really not making my decision any easier lol

    Now just spent few more hours just drooling over some pictures over the net:

    Does anyone have any experience with suede boots from C&J? Are they good quality? Maybe not so suited for winter?

    i'm interested in the chelsea 5. i do have a low instep/low volume foot with narrow heels so i assume this would be a tough fit for me. i have some brecon chukkas on the 341 last that fit reasonably well, but the quarters come together when i have them laced tight. any hope for the chelsea 5?

    the strong usd is really making it hard to not order shoes i don't need.

    I thought the brown shell Skye is a standard production model. Just contact a C&J shop.

    They are indeed a standard makeup (assuming the OP is ok with eyelets + hooks):

    It's amazing how much darker they are depending on lighting conditions. Makes me want a pair!

    They do seem much darker on the C&J website. I like the way they look in the lighting in Mutumbo's pics. I really want a pair with all exposed eyelets.

    If that's the case, you have a few choices:

    1. Single MTO - No idea what C&J charges for single MTO but it won't be cheap
    2. gMTO - You'd have to find 11 other people who want that exact makeup with all eyelets. I suspect chances are slim
    3. Stock Model & aftermarket eyelets via a cobbler (I've heard good things about Sublime Goods for brass eyelet conversion) - this is probably your best bet

    What are the top penny loafer choices from C and J and the brands they white label for? Thinking brown versatile that can be dressed up or down?
