1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Hi Guys,

    A couple of 'Wanderers'... (a UK pun....apologies to everyone else)
    Which finish do you prefer?

    Crockett & Jones "Bolton" Chestnut (236 last)

    Crockett & Jones "Bolton" Tan Scotch Grain (236 last)

    Regards,

    Graham


    The "Bolton", chestnut, 236, has it I think. Actually, I've always thought that scotch grain leather looks far better in darker shades of brown. The Tan Burnished has always, for me, been a bit 'loud'. It looks a tad like reptile skin, which is very off putting. I say this as a former owner. A better colour would be burgundy or chestnut brown. I hesitate to say dark brown, which is in vogue at the moment, as it is a curiously dull colour. The counterpart of black really. Chestnut and burgundy would work well: as burgundy ages, red hues and tones come through and as chestnut ages darker hues and tones come though. Both would work well with grain.

    BB's bandaid color Peal plaintoe is on the 360E last. I really like the shoes. Is it easy to recolor them? LINK

    Does anyone know which last is wider,337 or 325?

    In my experience (boots Coniston) 325 is wider than 337.

    348 works for me. I have narrow heels so, for example, on the 341 last my heels will slip. I also have a slightly wider foot (between D and E) with very little arch. My toes are spaced wide so I usually require larger toe box. I tried on a few last that the manager at C&J here in NY thought that would fit my feet but it turns out that the 348 fit best even though it's suppose to be for narrower feet. So my advice is to go try it out before you buy.

    Hi Guys,

    Does anyone recognize this?

    It is on the 337 last and to all intents is an Albany with a medallion.

    At a guess made for Japan or Ben Silver?????

    Inside marked J 9813
