1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Crockett and Jones "Edgware"
    Asking SOLD not inclusive of shipping.

    Worn a handful of times. I don't think the 348 last agrees with me. I have also discovered I prefer a rounder toe. I've tried to leave the pictures unaltered, but they might be a little dark.

    Details (product page)
    Dark brown burnished calf
    Plenty of life in soles (I would rate 8/10)
    One of C&J's most popular lasts... the sophisticated, chisel-toed, 348. Perfect for this town shoe.
    Does not include trees.

    Sizing
    UK8 E fitting
    348 last

    Lodger "Cardington" desert boot
    Asking USD250-->150 or best offer. Now with Free Shipping anywhere in the world! Retails for USD450.

    Details (product page)
    Snuff suede
    Made in England
    Crepe soles
    Buttery soft uppers
    Two eyelet
    Comes with slide-out box, tags and bamboo-fibre shoe bags

    To note
    Soles have some caked on grime on them. I'll brush them off before sale, but these are crepe soles, so you should expect some of that.
    Bought from The Armoury.
    These run a little long, maybe half a size, which is one reason why I'm selling them.

    Sizing
    UK 7.5

    Stuart's Choice double monks by Grenson
    Asking USD410->USD370-->320->SOLDflat with free shipping. Stuart's Choice retails for USD600+ and I don't think they are made by Grenson anymore.
    After coveting this pair for some time, I finally snagged them, only to realise that I don't really like monkstraps. Wore them one two or three occasions.

    Details
    Made by Grenson to Masterpiece standards. The consensus is that this is on par with Edward Green and C&J Handgrade.
    Soles are 9/10
    Chanelled soles
    Snuff suede is still deep, rich, and the nap unmolested
    I don't know what last this is, but it's got a slight chisel to it, while maintaining a generally round toe.
    Nice matte (brass?) hardware. None of that garish silver stuff.
    Slim single soles.
    Made in England

    Sizing
    US 9D fitting
    Marked 8008/54 in the shoe
    Fits true to size.

    To note
    The elastic bands connected to the buckles are quite frayed. I don't know why this is, but it doesn't seem to affect the shoe.
    No bag, box or trees.

    Agreed. Monks are particularly excellent.
