    Just Gerry, please :) I'm wearing the Mortimers right now and getting quite comfortable with the snugness. The C&J Sydneys are beautiful as you well know. I take a size 9.5 in the 348 last but when I tried the Sydneys in 9.5, it still felt a little loose in the heel. Christian suggested I try a black size 9 Sydney which they had there and they actually fitted really well. I never would have thought I'd be wearing any shoe in size 9 but there you go. I had a similar experience when I tried a pair of Tods loafers in Malaysia - size 9 fitted perfectly. It might be on the cards ...

    I think the best thing would be for you to try them out for yourself and see how they are on your feet.

    The Sydneys cost $599 and there's more info at http://shop.herringbone.com/ProductDetail/mens/shoes/shoes_crockett_and_jones_sydney/2199

    Why not just buy from shops that ship internationally? There is enough places on the net that do to satisfy pretty much everyone. I think what u are looking for doesn't exist to be honest. Why would these people not charge fees for their service? That's their whole business isn't it?

    I have nothing against their business practices, my point is in relation to saving money.
    I am a member of Shipito and have used the assisted purchase feature in the past, its great, it works.
    But i don't want to pay extra anymore.
    They have a new site called zeeg.us which does the ap part on your behalf without all those extra fees, but atm
    only a select number of sites are available for use (amazon.com being one).

    i guess the search continues.

    you're not going to find a free service. How much are you currently paying for forwarding?

    You can buy levis from amazon which can be shipped to shipito. Try general retail sites - bluefly, nordstrom, amazon etc.

    Someone was asking earlier in the week for me to post up a photo of my new Herring Chamberlain's. As promised here they are!

    (I decided to upload a photo of my Cheaney Leadenhall's too, seeing as they are a different style on exactly the same last).

    Hope this helps whoever was looking for captoes!

    Brown ones are the Herring Chamberlain's and black ones are the Cheaney's.
