    I own a pair of the James loafers and I'd say they run true to size.

    I saw a pair on ebay with dainite sole, isn't it a non sens to build a summer shoe with thick rubber sole?

    I do agree with this to an extent. However the James is a fairly sturdy shoe with a barbour welt and it definitely has a heavy feel to which I like. It is what I would describe as more of a british style loafer, whereas American loafers (which I am also a fan of) tend to have a lighter moccasin style construction.
    Although I would not opt for a dainite sole myself I think the shoe can take it. I tend to wear mine as a work shoe rather than a casual shoe although it could be worn as either. They also do a version of the James called Giacomo which has a double leather sole and that must be seriously heavy.

    Anyone got a pair of the Lambourns? I can't decide between going a full size down in UK from my normal US dress shoe size, or just a half size.

    Ordered some black stows from the shoehealer last week - got a follow-up about sizing but haven't heard anything since. Do they normally provide a tracking #?

    Yes they do and Richard is rather prompt when it comes to shipping, I believe he is out of town for the moment.
    You can always email them to inquire about your order status, they have great customer service.

    Hey Guys,

    A few of us have been trying to put together an MTO project with 3 definites confirmed. It'll be based upon a recent Junya Watanabe X Trickers Super Boot model that retailed earlier last year at Mr. Porter, Paul & Friends, and The End.

    There are some modifications we'll be making to that model too. And the quote we got from Richard from the Shoe Healer, makes it a better deal too.


    Current pricing for our MTO model would be £325.00 (exclusive of VAT), or around $522.00 for non-EU based customers.

    Inclusive of VAT, it would be £390.00.

    Tentative Specs are as Follows:

    Tricker's Eaton Model (w/ no medallion on toe) i.e. a perforated captoe boot
    Acorn Antique Leather
    Brass Eyelets
    Red or Orange Lining
    Orange
    Pull Tabs
    Commando Sole
    Natural Welt

    4444 Last / 5 Fitting


    The photos below should give you an approximate idea of what the boot would turn out like:

    What's different with our MTO model is that it would be on the 4444 last, and have brass eyelets, whereas the original Junya model is rumoured to be on the 4497 . . .

    Here's a link to a captoe Eaton model on the 4444, which should give you a better idea of what the toe box area would look like:
