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.

    Selling the following two shoes as I am now a proponent of buying very snug fitting shoes and breaking them in and these two do not fit that bill. The C&J Weymouths need no introduction. These are brand new an unworn and I already added the taps on them. 9.5UK translates to a 10.5US. Will come with box and bags. The Zegna are from the couture line, which is their top line. They are either goodyear welted or blake, not sure but one of the experts on the forum can feel free to chime in. Also new and unworn. Beautiful soles with lots of slugging. Size 11D (length 12 3/4, width 4 1/2). Only have the shoes and if you can wait a few days, I will also have the shoe bag. No box. Prices included shipping and I am open to offers. Sorry for the crappy pics, the Weymouths look like they are scratched but that is just from the shoes rubbing against each other. Also, neither shoes have been polished so they are dull and have dust. I know, I know, I'm a great salesman. Weymouths $360, Zegna $275.

    Sorry about the dirty rug, I need to crack the whip on Jeeves.

    They have the size listed as 10EU 11US but I think unless you like them snug, they are more of a 10.5 than an 11. They are long but alot of that is the elongated toe. Also, I think they might be sold.

    Weymouths arrived yesterday. Condition was superb. Shipping was incredibly fast. Good deal all around.

    Fit-wise, there's about a 3/8 inch gap between the laces (the V thing) - pretty close to graziano's 1/4 inch preference. I assume after some wear, the gap should shrink a little bit?

    Last night, I was comparing it to my Polo double buckle monkstrap (the Chawner, I think) which some forumites have been arguing are 337 handgrades as well... It's damn near close in profile and from above, and the slight differences could be within manufacturing tolerances. Sole and heel treatment appears to be the same (except for an extra 3 nails in on of the shoes - I think the Polo). I think the Weymouth has slightly better leather, but that could just my imagination. Fit of the two appears to be the same.

    I wore mine to a weddin on Sat with a navy suit. I had to see them in the sunlight to see how spectacular the color is. So, great pick up for you.[​IMG]
