    Only Navy in the Ryder III. Size 9 or 11. Too bad. Where can one find them online?

    Gentlemen,
    The Harvard, dark brown shell cordovan. 1 year-old and worn with Mazarin yellow socks.

    It's my only C&J in cordovan. I don't know whether it's only me but it seems that the cordovan used by Alden with its unlined LHS is much more comfy, soft...

    Will go for the C&J chiltern in suede next week. Do I need shoe-trees for this pair? Since I will wear them pretty often now.

    I have the shoe trees for every single pair, so my answer - yes. But don't buy C&J trees, lost money, better use any good cedar trees you can get. I bought their trees for 70 euro or so, now I regret.

    Yeah you are right, better to be on the safe side. Well I never bought any C&J-trees for my other C&J shoes. The only pair I use the same brand on is G&G, rest fuck it :D

    Will not take any chanes buy buying them online without trying them on (and i'm to lazy to send back and pay shipment costs if they didn't fit). Since I tried on the C&J today and they were fine and they look pretty much the same just little more expensive.

    Edit: Somerville, not Cottesmore... I ALWAYS mess there two names up! Don't feel too bad, i didn't get these during a sale, I got these some time ago and ordered them directly from the UK. I think it was a rare pair because the upper and shaft are dark oak leather and does not have the suede shaft.

    I have a pair of the Grasmere in 10E and recently purchased the C&J shoe trees (both purchased from C&J NY). I put the trees in the shoes for the first time tonight and it seemed like putting in a shoe stretcher. Has anyone else had this experience? Just how tight should the C&J shoe trees be? Previously I have used either Alden or A&E shoe trees, but never had an experience like this.

    That's the way they are. Don't be alarmed. They are almost like lasted trees.
