    Thank you for your kind words and apology. That shows great integrity.

    A bit of banter is never a problem and even I can be a culprit of that.

    Thanks for reading the blog.

    This.. my friends... is what you expect to hear from someone who has never run a clothing company.

    Hi Justin

    Sorry to bring this up here but it's the most convenient channel for me.

    I purchased a pair of shoes from you when you launched and enjoy wearing them. I don't know if/when I'll get another pair simply because my closet is full at the moment.

    But I am getting regular emails from your site even though I clicked on the unsubscribe button....Ive unsubscribed about three times now.

    I am sure some other company is handling your online sales but could you have a word to them to take these unsubscribe requests a bit more seriously...otherwise it's pointless to give people that option.

    Thanks, and apologies in advance if this isn't the place to bring it up...but I did try via the normal channels.

    Cheers

    Sorry that this has happened. I do use a system that gathers my emails and then have someone else running/managing it, so yes communication can be a bit messy sometimes. I am sorry that it has been like this for you.

    If you can please either email me ([email protected]) or PM to give me your full name and email, I can then ensure that I remove it manually, for good.

    Thanks again for your support and happy to know that you have at least been enjoying your Laurelhurst loafers.

    -Justin

    This is a generous offer. How do you feel about me ordering two pair of boots and then returning the pair that does not fit?
    I could tell your my sizes in the most EG, C&J, G&G etc etc but this approach is not guaranteed. I would therefore order two pairs and then try them at home, keep the one that fits and return the one that does not. If this is OK with you, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

    That is fine with me providing that you know that you would have to pay for the shipping back to us. My shoes fit more closely to C&J than the other two, particularly the 348 last, just not quite as elongated. Thanks for your interest and support.


    Thanks D. Whatever happened to your Wallingfords. Did you manage to sell them in the end?

    I did. They found a good home. I am keeping an eye on your future releases in the MFG last. Is the width a tad more generous than the JKF last?

    That's good, I am glad but of course sad that they did not work out for you.

    Not really to be honest, maybe a fraction, but nothing significant. The MGF last for me, will be what I start my conservative models off in. Thinking of doing the Magnolia and my old Fremont on the MGF last. The LPB (slightly softer) is what I am really going forward with coming A/W

    Thanks for the updates. LPB looks very nice as well.

    I'm ready to jump right in and order. Debating on two oxfords: greenwood brown suede or windmere mocha calf. For this price point, I am expecting The quality level to be on par with Carmina. Judging from the other posters (Euro & Roger) showing their interest, I would imagine my expectations will be met.

    My pleasure. Thanks as always for your support in the blog.



    "As good as Carmina" is up for debate, particularly as I feel that Carmina undervalue their own shoes, by a lot. They could easily sell for +£450 and they would still be worth it. We have different traits that make us good. They definitely have more hand techniques (fudge wheel on the welt, nails on the toe etc) than my own do but I do think that my own shoes are a good price for what you get. Just want to be honest.

    I don't think you will be disappointed especially with the lower risk of free shipping.

    I really appreciate the honestly, Justin. I definitely agree with your opinion on Carmina, I would pay C&J prices for them with no gripes. Your prices seem very fair for what you offer and the free shipping is a huge bonus. Thanks for the reply.
