Buy them then! And post pics.
Buy them, buy them, buy them.!!!!!!!!! See if they have one in UK 12.5E for me.
Hopefully a quick question for you.
What colour polish would you use on my Beechnut Merton's.
It's perhaps a tad more red than Chestnut.
Always use a lighter color if you want to maintain the original shde.. I think either a neutral or light brown should work. This wil keep the original shade and builds a glowy patina with time.
Try Saphir, a very high quality polish.
Wait, I thought chesnut is more reddish than Beechnut?
Fabulous looking shoes.
Thanks for sharing.
I think you may be right actually. I was just going to the pictures in ye C&J catalogue.
I love mine, but they are decidedly orange-y in real life.
Ron transformed mine into a museum-dark chestnutty, antiqued brown!
A long while since I've been here, but wondered if anyone else has received their invitation to the C&J James Bond event at the Jermyn St store - CJ provided the shoes for the new film, and have an invitation only black tie event in two weeks time for special customers.
Rumoured attendees include D. Craig, and yours truly.
They look much better like this.
I agree too orange in real life, difficult to wear
How is it achieved?
Those are beautiful.
I like this new color much better
Damned shame Ron doesn't do straight up antiquing jobs anymore. They monks he did for me turned out great.
The man is a genius!!
