    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    A question for those who are familiar with both UK and US sized C&J. Has anyone purchased from Barney's recently? If so, would you say that their size conversions are accurate (ie. 10EUK=11DUS). Or a full size conversion. Neither the box or shoe was labeled with UK size. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    I ordered a pair of Islays and went strictly by their sizing and it worked out (TTS) just right for me. If in doubt order 2 and return the one that doesn't work for you.

    I would go by the UK size listed in their website. The suggested TTS may not be accurate. Islay is in the 365 last and is roomier. I am a 6.5E UK in most CJ, EG and JLP. My Aldens plaza are 7D. The Islay I just got from Barney's was a 7D US and listed as 6UK on their site. Luckily I could try them in store. I would suggest to you try on or get 2 sizes if you could not try them in person as the other gentleman suggested.

    If I remember correctly, CJ NY store could get items not listed as the regular US stock.

    Since I was chatting Northcote earlier today, I thought I'd PSA an 11D, Black, very gently (barely?) pre-owned pair that just turned up on Ebay with a good starting price here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/281070951178


    Apparently being flipped from Barney's recent sale. No affil with seller, just passing it along for those who might be hunting it.

    Icic I don't live in the US either so having it shipped from France would make more sense no vat and all. So whatcha think Portman right? That's the only boot from them I like its sleeker and handgrade

    I got the Cliffords and I thought the conversion was accurate (labelled US10D = UK9E).

    Since we actually now have a C&J representative, maybe this can officially be cleared up with the size conversions with brands such as Barney's, Ralph Lauren, Paul Stuart, and Brooks Brothers. However, if this infringes on contractual matters, I understand if manufacturers may not be able to provide such information.

    If this thread were a business, I would buy all the stock I could lay hands on. Its value just skyrocketed. :)

    I have some C&J 9D BB Black Fleece Cordovan Captoe double leather storm welted boots that have minimal milage on them, but did see snow once. Anyway not creased and a very good looking #8 built on 240 last. PM me if interested..... This is the boot listed on the BB website currently for 1Kish. Going another direction.

    By Portman I mean Portman 2, and if that is discontinued someone needs to update the website.

    Also the UK doesn't sell any version of the Portman if you believe the website. Where do I find the Portman 2? Or who do I contact to get a pair?
