1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'm bumping this partly as an excuse to show a pair of fantastic-looking well-worn Weymouths..but also to ask what size are these?

    These are 8.5E.

    Got my first pair last week from AFinePairOfShoes.com - Hallam in Dark Brown calf. They are subs but they are no real noticeable flaws... For $350 shipped I can't complain. Anyone know where I can find the Hallam in the USA at a reasonable price? Seems like US shops mark them up (probably due to tax?)

    Any advice?

    Percival - Is there a particular online source for the lasted trees? I've only seen the unlasted C&J branded ones.

    Also, if anyone is interested, I contacted Bodiley's regarding C&J availability. They are now taking orders for (estimated) August delivery.

    C & J Edgware - one of the dubious advantages of living in Manhattan is that there is now a C & J store on W. 56th St. - good for my style, bad for my credit rating.

    Probably a dumb question, but how much toe space should there be in 348 last?

    I wear a US 10d in most shoes, and received a UK 9E in Hallams. With thin socks, there is a good amount of space in the toe and a little slipping in the back, but the width is great. With fairly thick socks they fit just fine. Should I go down to an 8.5 or will they kill my feet? Theres no C&J store near me so its hard to compare sizing. I also don't feel like going through the hassle of re-selling or returning...

    I'm not sure if this has been posted here or on another thread before. C&J is making shoes for Paul Smith. I'm a fan of ps shoes and I have a few pairs but all of them are made in italy.. This seems to be a great improvement for ps.

    Does anyone have an idea about the last (doesn't look like a 337 or 348) and grade (benchgrade vs. handgrade)?

    Those look nice. I like the cap toe. Looks a little like the 318 last from the C&J catalog.

    +1.

    The 318 is probably my favourite C&J last; shame they don't use it for more models.

    Oh cool, I didn't recognize them at first, but I actually have the same Edgwares in brown [​IMG]

    Too many shoes too keep track of [​IMG]

    I'm a small US 10D and I've had success going to an 8.5F on the 348 last.
    I can do an 8.5E as well but I have to break the shoes in a bit as they are
    a tad snug at first.


    Probably a dumb question, but how much toe space should there be in 348 last?

    They're selling for $810 to $850 so I would assume/hope they are hand grades. But you never know.

    Tell me a bit more about this last... how does it compare to, say, the 341 or 337?

    And do you have any experience with the 317? Am thinking of getting a Draycott.

    Remember that you are paying a markup for the 'Paul Smith' brand.

    ^ AFAIK the only model C&J currently have on the 318 last is the black Dartmouth, which is the one I have (at some earlier time they had this model in both dark brown suede and a light brown calf, I believe).

    Compared to the 341, it's about the same width but slighly less elongated (about a ½cm shorter in an 8½UK). They fit me about the same.

    To me the 318 looks identical to the 238 last of my Chelsea's - apart from one being a shoe and one being a boot, of course.

    Sorry, but no experience with the 317 and all I can recall about the 337 is that it didn't work for me, though I don't think it was as bad as the 348 was.
