    I am still in for the Harlech and it looks like I'm in the first 12!

    I'm curious about sizing. Im a 9.5 E in the Alden grant last, 9.5 E in the AE 5 last, and a 9 E in the Alden trubalance last. Any help would be appreciated.

    I have a brand new in the box pair of Whiskey Harlech's in 10E. Email me if you're interested in them without the wait from C&J.

    I think we have another 2-3 months at least of waiting before those start showing up. :(

    Yeah. =/ according to Lauren when I last emailed her in the beginning of March, it is a 16-week turnaround. That puts them on schedule for sometime in July.

    Did BEn Silver offer these in the past? I know they offered the Boston in Whiskey.

    I suspect that, after shipping costs are added (if they're prepared to ship overseas), you'd be looking at $1100 or so for a pair of tassel loafers.

    Unfortunately, imported shoes, particularly those imported from the UK and US, are very expensive in Japan as there's a significant import tax applied to them.

    Edited to add:

    - If you could persuade the shop to ship overseas, then there's a chance that they might agree to remove the consumption tax from the price for you, so that would save you a bit. However, if you have a use a proxy, then you wouldn't get the consumption tax removed and you'd pay full price.

    - Sizes are limited - they only go up to 8.5 (which I assume would be UK sizing).

    - They've got a few other models in whiskey shell, too, a split-toe blucher called the Moreton and a long-wing blucher called the Cheviot. There's also a plain-toe blucher in dark brown shell.

    This may be a redundant question considering the availability of BB black fleece boots (N/A in Australia) but, is anyone interested in a group-buy for C&J Coniston in black scotch grain??

    I believe the requirement to produce these boots at standard/retail price is minimum 12 orders. Configuration would be as per image below (Dainite sole, black scotch grain leather, brown midsole and welt).

    Delivery is 6-8 month (just in time for southern hemisphere winter next year! maybe....)

    Does C&J accommodate larger sizes? I need a 13EEE. If so, please put me down as interested in the Whisky shell Harlech. Thanks!
