Don't know how you do it Z but keep it up. Love this makeup
Yeah, I too prefer loafers on the snug side. I found posts that seem to suggest the Harvard uses US sizing. Maybe they relabel the sizes for US retailers?
marmottan: "I usually take the LHS unlined in 8.5D but the Harvard in 9D. The small problem here is that it is not mentioned on the C&J whether it is in US or UK sizes. In my opinion, it is US size since I take for instance the chukkas and others C&J in 8.5D or 8E UK, never in 9D UK..."
NAMOR: "I am tts 12D and these fit tts, 11.5D."
I can't confirm or deny this.
My Selbornes I bought recently from Bodileys http://www.shoesnorthampton.co.uk/ have some minor flaws (sole edge profiling cutter slipped into the heel), I wonder whether they were marked as seconds at the factory?
Anyone has/had any similar experience with this vendor, or any other C&J reseller?
They charge full price on the shoes, though, but no shipping which is dubious; they probably get the shoes at a substantial discount.
I also bought from C&J direct, and they sell for slightly less but charge for shipping.
Navy Lowndes from Barney's.
They look like black in normal light (or what passes for it in Seattle in December).
Thanks for the photo, was going to get them but that's what I thought as well so passed
To be honest, the color looks terrible in that photo. I almost didn't post.
I like the almost black look in normal light.
I would agree that they are a dark navy and the flash/lighting in that pic didn't do you any favors. On my floor under the magic lights they look pretty snazzy!
I REALLY like these... I wonder if they still have a UK 6E...
I am having a hard time deciding whether to get the Skye or Skye 2 boots. I will use these boots mainly for winter and poor weather...
Whats your thoughts about this one guys?
Skye 2, shell cordovan and dainite sole is in my opinion much more usable in the winter.
You are quite right, however the skye 2 is 50% more than the skye. I believe they can install dainite soles for £60.
Then the skye would be £445, while the skye 2 sits around £570 I believe.
Whats your thoughts on that?
Can the owners of the skye boots chime in on this? Are the calf skye's excellent winter boots?
Personally, I would wait for the RL sale and get the RL Lindrick, but if I had to choose I would still go with the Skye 2 since I've fallen in love with shell.
Yes, the lindrick. I never liked the eyelets on the lindrick, thats why I like the skye much better. But the C&J for RL shoes are amazing. I have the wingtip and the penny loafer.
