1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Hey dsmivtr, I agree that it's a pretty conservative last.

    By the way, I should have mentioned in my post that I actually bought these shoes secondhand from Ich_Dien.

    It looks much better for larger sizes... it just wasn't right for 7E. :)

    Guys, I'm planning to buy the C&J Savile. This shoe will be worn mostly with dark jeans because I'm a student.

    The colors I'm chosing between are dark brown leather and mink suede. I cannot make a decision and I'm too poor to buy both :)

    They are both nice but I would go for the leather one. Could be worn to almost anything, suede is little hard to pull off and could not be worn with anything and always.

    I just want to commend you for, being a student, able to afford a C&J Handgrade. :)

    Personally I would go with the dark brown leather. I like how they age and they are more versatile.

    monk = casual, so the answer is suede.

    the guy who mentioned AE doesn't count, sorry. so it is 1 - 1, up to now.

    Suede is casual sure. But more proper with the leather one.

    Is the 336 last on the C&J anything like the 511 last of the AE Leeds?

    I have a pair of the old old model Clifton on a narrower last and they hurt my feet overtime. Was just wondering if the 336 will be similar to which.

    I take 8.5D and considering the 7.5E Audley as a new cap toe in my rotation (2 pairs for work)

    This.

    Also, most calf shoes look bloody awful with denim.
