Yes I'm a sad C&J fanboy.
But anyway... "Buckingham" (black) "Sandown" (black) "Sandown" (tan) The last link goes to C&J's own website - it looks like C&J have done some serious updating. Â In particular, they seem to have got rid of a lot of the older models in their regular line and brought in some new ones to replace them - and I think in a new last too (341, looks a bit longer/slimmer/pointier than usual to me). Not sure if these new models are available yet though, but if so, I don't understand why they're introducing them now given that the current catalogue is supposed to run into 2005. Â Could be for an overseas market, I suppose.

The tan "Sandown" is available in London.

I don't quite understand your question, "why introducing them now".

It might be summer outside, but for retailers the next season has already begun. Boots sell better in the winter season

Dammit, the Finsbury in dark brown suede is just about what I've been looking for, and the 341 last looks great. Of course, as luck would have it, just last week I ordered a similar shoe from Yanko. Why couldn't Crockett & Jones just let it rest with their 2004 catalog? The thing just came out and doesn't include the Finsbury. Plal hasn't even uploaded the new catalog yet, and it is already out of date.

I think Montecristo got the gist of it.

I was talking mainly about the new models in the regular line and wondering why C&J would introduce them halfway into 2004 when they're not featured in the current catalogue, which is dated 2004-2005.

Having said that, I do think the new models on the 341 last look nicer than the ones they've replaced.
