    Archibald London: true craftsmanship, no middlemen, Official Vendor Thread

    Great to hear that you had no issues. I did, hence why I can talk about the customer service speed and efficiency and also the quality issues, which were very much present in the most unwearable ways in every pair of shoes I ordered except one. Plus, the more I wear and look at my Harlestones...

    Crown Northamptons customer service and reply speed is one of the slowest in the business, I speak from experience. https://www.styleforum.net/threads/crown-northampton-appreciation-thread.686014/page-8#post-11655447 I since switched to dealing with Goral and it's a big improvement in that...

    Crown Northampton Appreciation Thread

    You are completely right about the design disconnect and at first I did ignore the looks as I had a real unconscious bias towards them due to the hype around the materials etc. The Everdon boot is imo one of the ugliest piece of footwear I have seen and I can't imagine wearing one. My...

    They have offered to give me my order at the "old" prices which is something. I will proceed with my order. How do you like your Mastrotto blues is the colour darker navy or brighter blue? I am undecided whether to get Mastrotto or regular calf... I know Mastrotto shows creases less than calf...

    Thanks for posting that detailed information, it's much appreciated and the Horweens look really nice! I noticed that the inner of the Mellor II underneath the insole is very firm. I swapped the super thick insole that came with it for a thinner one and the shoes are now much more spacious and...

    Morning all. Two bits of news... 1) Today I received my Gorals in size UK11 from Ebay and it's been interesting. At first when I tried them on I was like "wtf, they feel small for UK11" but then I took a look at the insoles and wow... they are crazy thick and take up a TON of inner space (see...

    Hi all... how do I get an GMTO added to the Excel sheet? Is there an admin or do I just somehow add a tab myself? I couldn't see a way to edit the sheet unless I am being blind. :)

    Carmina Shoes - Definitive Thread (reviews, advice, sizing, etc...) - official thread.

    Hi all. Which Carmina last is the equivalent to C&J 365 (Islay), slim and fitted at the heel and sides and then wide at the forefoot?

    The Goral footwear (made in Sheffield, UK) thread...

    Interesting thanks. My UK11 should arrive next week at some point so I will report back here with how they fit! If they end up like a 'practical' size UK10.75 then it may work out well for me. :D Wow the top ones kind of look like barefoot style shoes, very wide at the toes.

    Please write to them and tell them you want VAT calculations included. They won't read your complaints here most likely. You can reach them at customerservices(at)goral-shoes.co.uk replace (at) with an @ And yes the service charge can be annoying that's true! Interesting to hear they are...

    Are you usually UK10 and if so do you think the Gorals run a bit small?

    ** Quintessential Crockett & Jones Thread ** (reviews, quality, etc...)

    This is also true, my 365 instep needed a bit of loosening as it was intially a little tight. How does 335 compare to 365 in terms of the heel fit and overall length? Also are there any overall width differences at the forefoot?
  16. M

    ** Quintessential Crockett & Jones Thread ** (reviews, quality, etc...)

    To some extent, yes. I have a slim heel and wide forefoot so it is perfect for me.

    Hi all does anyone know how last 335 fits vs the Islay last 365? I am UK9.5 in Islay and am wondering if 335 would give me the same fit or if I would need to size up by half. :)

    We can discuss anything made by Goral in this thread! :) So you are usually a UK9 and you have Goral UK9's and they fit mostly TTS with a bit of room, is that correct? I am wondering how my UK11's will fit when they arrive as I read reviews saying Goral may run a tiny bit small. Regarding the...
