    I felt the same way when I got mine - but I'd recommend you get the brown suede instead.

    The only way to solve the problem is to get them all [​IMG]

    Myke,

    I'm assuming you ordered the shoes from Northhampton? How did you determine the size? Had you tried any C&J on before for fit?

    I received their catalogue and I'm thinking about ordering a pair but am suspect of my sizing. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, I ordered them from Bodiley's of Northampton. I wear a size 13D US and just went with the UK size equivalent of 12 E. I never tried any C&J shoes in person and took a chance, and good thing they were spot on [​IMG]

    Usually, UK sizes are one full size down from US sizing.

    ^Thx fr th cnfrmtn. Hadn't realized they actually go on top of a layer of leather, I thought they went directly onto the welt.

    IBJanky, any chance we can get a shot of the stiching on the sole up close. On another thread with a Dainite resole it looked like the stitching was flush with the surface rather than recessed, which would make me a little wary, despite the reassurances.

    I def need some dainites for rain...

    Very nice, I have my eye on a pair of brown suede Tetburys to go with my brown suede RMW's, I wear them with just about anything.

    That's why I bought mine and they've performed admirably so far.

    I got caught in a bad rain storm 2 days ago with my Tetbury, the shoes got soaked.
    Now the surface has dryed up, but I see a ring of water marks now left on the lether, near the sole. Anyone has any idea?

    BTW, I am in the same situation as the OP, and got both lether and suede boots, love them both.
