Currently I have in my possession 1 pr. of black Chelsea boots & 1 pr. of snuff suede Chilterns, both C&J 6.5's (both brand new/unworn other than trying on). They were purchased from PLal and turned out to be a bit too snug (Mr. Doshi subsequently sent me 7's which have worked out a bit better). Before I send them back to Mr. Doshi & absorb the cost of shipping to Kuala Lumpur, I would offer them up to my brethren here @ SF for the price I paid & I would include cost of shipping within continental U.S. The one advantage I can see here is that you could avoid the typical 1-2 month wait to have the shoes shipped from C&J to PLal, etc., assuming this is the style & size that works for you.
