Whoa! Did they have many sizes? All gone now ...
Will be going to Japan (Tokio) in a few weeks, who sells C&J and where?
Unless you are really dying to own a Japan-only model, don't buy your C&Js in Japan because, as indicated earlier in the thread, you will pay a massive premium to do so. C&Js in Japan cost about $300 more than they do in the US/UK.
Anyway, there are quite a few places that stock C&J in Tokyo, including the shoe basement in the Isetan Men's Annex in Shinjuku, in other department stores such as Takashimaya Times Square in Shinjuku, and "Lifegear - Trading Post" in Ginza, Shibuya and Aoyama.
C&J Cottesmore in Chestnut
Did you KOP these from Barneys'?
no, its been a couple of years, from Europe somewhere
I've looked at them a couple of times, just not certain that they would work for me.
+1 to Journeyman for buying C&J elsewhere unless you want Japan only models.
Other than where Journeyman mentioned, major menswear stores such as United Arrows, Beams, Tomorrowland、Ships, Barneys) and slew of other smaller retailers carry C&J. Theres probably over 50 retailers handling C&J shoes in Tokyo. Perhaps due to the large market, and the buying power of the Japanese distributors (Griffin International being the largest), C&J's always been quite accommodating to making unique models (make-ups), and each of the major retailors (Beams, UA etc...) have their series of exclusive models, sometimes made from their own supplied last. UA's exclusive models use the last 349, Trading Post has their exclusive last 360 shoes. The last 367 mentioned earlier (Audley III) is probably exclusive to Isetan. Btw there's also an "Audley II' model based on 337.
Beams's newest exclusive: Bayswater Chukka Last 200
More interesting models in the past involve C&J's collaboration with local bespoke maker (Guild of Crafts). Guild designed the shoes and the last (Last G44). and C&J produced them.
C&J + Guild of Crafts: "Rusty" Last G44
Wish Barneys had stock, somebody bought in NY before Ryan could get it for me
10,5 and 11 I bought the 11s
Any consensus on the recommended C&J's for wear in light rain?
Suede with rubber sole.
I think the Brecon in country grain is a good shoe for foul weather wear.
Islays with the Dainite sole work pretty well.
Anyone have the number for Barney's online customer service, the number on website isn't working. Trying to verify if my order actually went through.
