    I don't remember which thread it was posted in, but there is a video with Crat putting due care to his boots too.

    Snowdon’s definitely look better with age if you ask me.

    Yep, I think I saw that one. After the ‘zug’ Snowdon had been caked in mud following a day of fishing. It’s nice to know you’re investing in such durable footwear. :)

    Hoping to get some help here - I’ve been looking for the C&J Millbank in black calf without success. Anyone have recommendations for a similar alternative, ie, relatively dressy ankle boot in black calf? Much appreciated.

    I'd rather have the Todd Snyder's! [​IMG]

    But since I live in France and haven't seen a 6.5 on the Snyder's site, Roughout it is! [​IMG]

    That's nice too. I only have Roughout and Scotch Grain. Coniston is a great shoe and it fits me too.

    Any go to recommendations for a resole for my beloved BB branded conistons?
    Still b Nelson?

    On a related note Having seen a recent Sargent Cambridge in the flesh I was impressesed at what it looked like a very nice nice version for a bit more than the cost of dainite resole (I believe b Nelson charges $200)
    Thanks

    Hello Crockett and jones experts. I am trying to take the plunge into my first pair of crockett and jones. I have confirmed fit of the 348 last but was wondering if anybody had firsthand experience with the 373 last in comparison to the 348.

    I am mostly worried about width room for my toes and instep.

    I'm sure you've checked the C&J web site. But this part may be useful to you:-
    . Fitting advice from retail… Last 373 will fit as a more generous version of the 348 last, . . .

    Yup - I saw that which was promising. Meaning Id probably be willing to get something on the 373 last without testing it. But because I am trying to be careful I figure I would ask around here for some direct feedback. My guess is that SF has a whole bunch of people that own shoes on both lasts
