    F 1/2 I think means slightly wider width than F.

    ^^^ Never heard of that, but I must say I find the whole idea of half-size widths quite appealing.

    Why thank you sir. And I agree - these dub monks are just terrific.

    I agree, I have them in CRU but I don't have the best grasp of the difference. I've heard many explanations but in the end, I fall back on the fact that I like the pairs I have in CRU.

    Since the very beginning, Saint Crispin's catalog widths have been specified as E1/2, F1/2, G1/2, H1/2 etc. On the shoes (soles, tongues & trees), these width letters are simply abbreviated as E, F, G, H etc.. There are no such thing as in-between-half widths. I.e. F1/2 = F when we speak StC. Confusing to the novice, for sure.

    Correct sir! I hear it is due to the metric system? I saw Tricker's also do the same thing (using 0.5 or 1/2 in front of their widths)

    I know we have some wild pairs on our webstore (http://www.mclassic101.com) but here are few somber MTOs we have done in the future :)

    Anyone ever send St.C to Nick at B. Nelson for resole?

    How much do they charge for re-sole/re-lasting?

    Thanks

    SC resole is $250. Re-lasting (not necessary unless you want to change sizes) is another $250.

    Resole job of StC. I took a picture at recent trunk show. I remember Phillip told me this is the third resole.

    Pretty reasonable, not bad actually. Asked above, but do you have an idea as to how long the turn around time is?

    How long have you had them? and how often have they been worn? I am curious what the duration has been to get to a 3rd resole

    That's St. Crispins to do it, not Nick.

    So far mine have been lasting a year before resole. One goes out and another comes in.

    I seem to recall that you walk quite a bit, but how many pairs of shoes are you wearing in regular rotation? A year seems quick to me, but then my usage may differ significantly from yours.

    Hi. The shoes are not mine actually. I was told the pair was 12 year old.
