    I am located in HK, and believe the E-store will be cheaper than that of retailers in HK. Wish I could be in UK and bought from C&J store directly...

    Can anyone confirm if the Audley 3 is only made for Japan? I checked with Bodileys and they have never heard of it so I could not order it. But it was shown in Last magazine. And I have heard there is Audley 2. Curious :lookaround:

    Yes Audley III is only made for Japan. Few days ago I saw them on sale at Isetan Mens (chestnut brown And dark brown). Audley II was made for United Arrows (or Beams?), it is on last 337 like Audley, but with added details such as pitched heel.

    I have bought several pairs from Pediwear and Bodileys but have stopped doing that. I think the wait is not worth the money saved so i buy directly from a C&J store (Burlington Arcade). Great service and fast shipping.

    Same here, if you change "several pairs" to "a few pairs". During my visits to London I've been to most of the C&J stores, and I received the best service in the Burlington Arcade store. In the other stores the SA were either condescending or simply ignored me, I suspect that they've yet to become used to the fact that "younger" individuals buy anything other than Converse.

    Just curious, are people avoiding the time consuming back-and-forth with C&J's mail order service by getting other C&J retail stores to send out shoes?

    +1. I've been surprised at how soft and stretchy suede can be. I buy half-a-size down in loafers and have always been happy as, although the fit is sometimes a bit too tight and incomfortable at first, they start to soften and loosen up pretty quickly and I'd definitely regret it if I had bought my regular size.

    I have no experience with the mail order service. I heard that C&J were having a new years sale a little more than a year ago and i just picked up the phone and called several stores. The guy at Burlington Arcade was very helpful and i bought two pairs + one for my girlfriend. After that i have bought two more pairs. The guy have called me three times just to check that i´m happy with the shoes and to tell me about special orders they have in my size. With that service i don´t feel the need to buy CJ shoes anywear else.

    I have a high insteap and even if this is a pair of chukkas they were tight. I´m sure they can be streched but i rather sell them and buy 0.5 size bigger. Only tried them on three times so it´s more or less a brand new shoe.

    Do you mean I can call them up to order a pair and have them delivered overseas?

    Last year I was after the Finsbury 2 in Cordovan which aren't available here in Sweden so by chance
    I just sent an email to the London store on 92 Jermyn Street asking them if they could ship a pair to me.

    I was a bit nervous when I got a reply from a guy who said no problem and wanted my credit card info,
    but he was really helpful and everything went really smooth.
