The UK stores reopened today so I caught the train and collected my special order Weymouth 2.
They're black cordovan on city soles and a 332 last. My feet are naturally not a slim elegant shape so these look slightly chunkier than the standard Weymouth 2 but the fit is sublime.

Beautiful. Interesting to know that you can get handgrade shoes in cordovan. May I ask what is the premium over a standard handgrade pair?

I’m surprised nobody’s brought up a GMTO for those cordovan whole cuts.

That's because you're not on the MTO thread :)

In comparison to the off the shelf hand grade version this special order cordovan had a premium of about £340 but perhaps the pricing has changed since I made the order.
However, I have some more special orders coming that are hand grade antique calf and are cheaper than the special order cordovan but not by a huge amount.

Maiden Voyage they are not Dover but 341 fits me well. City sole is nice and light!!View attachment 1592301View attachment 1592303
I’ve been debating getting the Hardwick in brown suede vs a similar style from TLB Mallorca. Would you (or others) have a comment on how the 341 last fits relative to Carmina last (I have Rain/Soller/Oscar/Sineu/Simpson, all in 7.5uk except 8.0uk for Simpson. All fit well)?

I take UK 11 in most of Carmina last and 341 last. For me the 341 is one the nicest fitting last. I can’t comment on TLB as I’ve never handled them but the Hardwick is one solid shoe.

That’s great to hear. Thank you for the comparison. I think I’ll go ahead and pull the trigger. I only have one C&J, a black Hallam that doesn’t get much wear, but I’ve always been impressed by the quality.

I was going to order through Bodiley’s as that seemed more straightforward than emailing the uk store now that they’ve launched a more formal online store (not going to pay the US list price so trying to get a UK/ex VAT option).

well, what until June and I guess you’ll see.

Given their foray into e-commerce, I could see that given the efficiency it affords.
