1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    I think if you went wider they would feel too loose. I don't think they should close all the way.

    BB Black Fleece #8 Captoe Boot, Double leather .. Storm welt .. Snowed the other day so they received a light brushing only. No Reno or paste was needed. Very nice cordovan leather on this boot, full of oils.

    These are on my wish list. Did you pay the full price for them ?

    Loving your Islays with the navy laces, where did you get your laces from?

    Actually, they sadly aren't mine - I was quoting CTBrumimie's post: just a few posts prior, here

    Updated C&J collection shot.

    Mostly boots, but I've got at least one pair of shoes for this upcoming spring and summer.

    ^Nice collection. Now go and put some decent wear on them and make them beautiful!

    Got the Islay laces from this old-school site. Pretty decent selection of colours, at least for my purposes...

    You can't tell it from this picture but the Islays went on their maiden voyage Saturday.

    I would love to see a pair of these in Oxblood, sorry own a pair of these in Oxblood, some times I hate living in Sydney ( sometimes ) one can not just go to the city and try on a pair of C&J shoe or boot in ones prefered model, and buying online is a risky game to play.

    You just have to take the good with the bad. At least there is a way to get them. Besides there are much more options for most people typically when you shop online.

    I guess I've been rather fortunate, I've only had to return one pair so far. But this occured when I was unable to figure out my size and I ordered two pair. I knew in advance I would be sending one back.

    Essentially you are asking for a single pair special order because a Hand Grade Alex does not exist. I cannot go into full details as I would be writing an essay on manufacturing efficiency and techniques. In short, special orders are sent around the factory separately to bulk orders which is not conducive to streamlined manufacturing and the most expensive way to produce a shoe.

    Thanks,

    Hi mate,
    I have 4 pairs of c&j shells. 1 pairs of Bradford and 3 pairs Rl Marlows. I have noticed they gets lighter with age and develop light spots on different places on different shoes(not uniform). They are like raw denim. Like buying 2 pairs of shoes at once.......gets lighter and you don't really know how it will look after a while. And I like the dark look as much as I like the lighter look. Don't get me wrong I love them all but just wondering if there any thing that I am missing. I have few other shell by other makers who uses a finish on their shell and they don't seem to have this issue.

    Great comparison shot.

    The old one doesn't look too bad.

    It is amazing how much lighter it is though.

    What are the differences between the 341 and 337 last in terms of toe box width / overall length / heel width

    If anyone has pictures of them side by side, it would be extremely helpful

    Thanks
