    At £305 I think these are not bad value and fill one of the few holes left in my shoe wardrobe.

    I have enjoyed his blog for some time and find a number of his designs very appealing. I had no idea where they were priced, so this at least gives me some idea. Thanks and congrats.

    Actually i just called in today and had a couple of pairs given the basic shine. What a refreshingly sincere and knowledgeable man is Justin. Very generous with his hints for doing your own shoe polishing and passionate about good shoes. He lifted the look of my bargain priced Cheaney Imperials remarkably. I'd show some pics but only have bad iPhone with me to take the photos.....

    Justin is a stand-up guy.
    He has a great eye for shoes, and my full support.
    Some choice pieces in his range too.
    I particularly like the balmoral boots and chukkas.

    I like the way how he said my feet wouldn't fit in his shoes before his launch.

    He is literally the most honest man in business I know, huge respect on him.

    Wow - fine looking pair they are!

    Got to say I respect Justin in what he's trying to achieve with his brand and best of luck to him - I didn't manage to catch up with him when I was still based in London but his range look pretty awesome :nodding:

    As others have mentioned his blog has been informative and highly educational for me.

    A beautiful, simple model to show off a perfectly proportional last.​

    My pair of laurelhursts. I would enjoy wearing them, even in poor health. I got an amazing introductory price on these. Just a note to say that the leather used is topnotch. This was how they looked when they first came. Since then I have polished with reno, bordeaux cream and black saphir. Antiquing now looks even better.

    I'm surprised this shoemaker doesn't get more love on this forum. The navy monks:
