    For most contracts C&J usually finish the shoes to between bench grade and hand grade standard in my experience.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned but I have some nice Kilgour shoes by CJ and they are definitely handgrade, not somewhere in between.
    Example is these which are exactly the handgrade model Stanley in black suede - you can see all the handgrade features

    I want to get a pair of combat boots. If you wear these hard and beat them up will they look like combat boots? Or should I buy a real pair of combat boots?

    waste of money imo to beat up some C&J, get a pair of doc air martins or wolverine to beat a boot up *edit leather is too soft on these to work like combat boots!

    What are the features of CJ handgrade shoes, in general?

    - leather insoles are one full piece from heel to toe, not half piece.
    - channeled sole
    - more refined leather

    I love C&Js too. How do you like the Hallams? What color?

    Interesting variation on the Lowndes..with the addition of a punched toe seam.

    This shoe is also on the 348 last.

    Love the Hayling. I've got it in suede. The calf looks great, too.

    I remember your pair. They looked terrific.

    How is the sizing, K?

    Where would someone from the USA be able to buy those?
