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.

    Osborn, you might be right based on an objective construction/quality assessment, but wasn't there something else...oh yes...shoes should also look great. I admit that styling is not a objective criterion. However, for me there is little which could beat C&J no matter if handgrade or benchgrade, e.g. the benchgrade Lowndes is the most beautiful double monk I have seen and well worth its price.

    the most usefull thing that can be said about C&J is that if you are comparing shoes at retail price, their benchgrades are pretty weak but their handgrades are good shoes (I am talking in price/quality ratios)

    Note however that for what you pay retail for a C&J handgrade you can get a discounted (for one reason or another) standard range EG and JLP (which are nicer; believe me) and if u look carefully 2 pairs of "former royal collection" (i.e retail £475) Churchs.

    Since discounted C&J handgrades are quite hard to find this makes the whole C&J brand not that attractive

    -my 2 cents


    This post is woefully ignorant. why the fuck would you compare MSRP CJ with ebayed EG?

    You can get discounted CJ all day from pediwear.

    Price not considered, there is not a single Church's I would take over my top 10 CJ handgrades

    since intelligent posts from osborn are hard to find this makes the whole osborn e-ouvre not that attractive

    Wow... simply beautiful.

    Are those C&J's considered wholecuts? What'd be the proper term for those?

    Those Bally's are also beautiful, what model and how much did it set you back?

    I wish C&J would make the medallion look less like a penis for some of their shoes.
