    The last pic is mine and yes i wear mine lots during late fall / winter / early spring. I wear them with jeans and i don´t think they are to dressy for that. It´s waxed leather so just don´t polish them too much and there is no problem to get a casual look...

    Anyone have the Tetbury in the antique new buck blk or brown.? I'm confused by the new buck part as I thought it was a suede ish version, oiled and more for very casual shoes? Thanks

    They are more like a slightly waxy leather. Feel nothing like nubuck.

    I once asked C&J directly about their cavalry calf, specifically whether it is corrected grain. Their response:

    Does anyone know what model this is? It appears to be a discontinued Handgrade model.

    Oh well, they're gone now anyway. New handgrades at under $400, I probably shouldn't have hesitiated.

    I got these a year ago for about USD200 in Hong Kong at Lane Crawford's discount outlet.

    It's called Cumberland. I asked C&J and they emailed me back saying they are handgrade on the 337 last and are discontinued.

    Today I've tried the 8.5 E in 325 Last, It's wearable but uncomfortable, it's long and a bit narrow for my feet.
    I don't found it to be such a generous last as usually described.
    I should accept that C&J E lasts aren't for my feet, probably I should try their 8G/8.5 F where available.

    Something a bit different...the C&J Lulworth saddle shoes, in mushroom suede / tan pebble grain.
    Very refined and elegant casual saddle.

    I bought a beautiful pair of Merton loafers this weekend while in Jermyn Street, London.
    They are on the 348 last and in a gorgeous Beechnut colour.
    When I went to pay I was told they are subs but with no sign of damage so I was chuffed to get the extra 10% off.
    But when I got them home I found this mark on the heel.

    Now I'm not so chuffed and am expecting to take a trip there again this weekend to exchange them for an unmarked pair.
    This isn't a small journey for me, but I'm sure will be worth the effort once I get my unmarked pair home.
    What a shop and what a beautiful shopping experience it is whenever I visit there.

    If it were me....I'd just let it be. After a few polishes and some wear they will start to take on a mark here and there anyway. It's all part of patina building.

    To me fit is the most important thing. If these fit exactly right, just keep them. If they don't, then take them back.
