    I've bought two pairs from Plal in the last year. Always had a good experience. Basically nothing left in my size .......

    Is it cheaper to order directly from C&J UK than to buy them in store in NYC? Would they even ship here knowing that the store is here? News that Daniel Craig is wearing Tetbury's in Skyfall has jonesing for a pair but $595 + tax in the store is more than I'm in for right now.

    Based on my experience a year ago, yes to both questions.

    I'm interested in going this route so would appreciate others' feedbacks. Based from what I've seen, looks like the price for the Tetbury would be 275 GBP + shipping.

    Also, which color is more versatile? Black or brown? I want to wear the Tetbury with jeans also

    I just bought two pairs of C&J Tetbury boots from Chistopher Forbes for about $395 (241 GBP) each + shipping. Also bought a Northcote for around $465 (305 GBP). Also, P.Lal has the Tetbury (limited selection) for the same price.

    Brown is more versatile. I have one in Black suede as well, but it is more special and less versatile. I love it.

    Is the stock on Christopher Forbes website reliable? Plal pricing on the Tetbury seems to be on the more expensive side. 1299 MYR + 115 MYR shipping

    you have to generally add 30GBP to Satorial_Splender's price for shipping to the states.. all in all, PLAL is definitely cheaper

    Chirstopher Forbes will get you one in less than a week if they do not have your size. I used them for 12E and received them in less than 10 days. They are reliable. email Alastair Ramsden at [email protected]; He is a joy to work with and very reliable.

    P.Lal is more expensive, but they have few in stock. If they have your size, it is faster.

    a 9.5US in a pair of westbourne (348 last) bought from Barneys would be the same size at 8.5uk on northcotes (also 348 last), correct? It seems like barneys sizes up by one, but it seems like I save a ton of money buying from christopher forbes instead of direct from the US store and returns are much harder if the size isn't right. I know the westbournes fit well, so I just need to figure out what size they're equivalent to.
