    Thanks for the replies about the Finsbury, its really helped me decide to go ahead. I think I'll order it with Dainite sole which C&J advised will take 2 weeks to do. :)

    Thanks Namor. I ordered TTS and found them a little too large with thin or sans socks. Going down 1/2 to Van Cordo size. I like the loafer .. Unlined being very key in the desert... and a light colour unlined .. Tough find...

    Smarta..
    Their catalogue is online, if you don't know at http://www.crockettandjones.com/
    And they ship by mail.
    One can either call or email. However, it is a good practice to call with your cc details, rather than email it... NSA is watching and someone there may sell your cc number, expiration date and CCV to the bad guys...
    And I'm not living in the US.

    Going 1/2 down like many people here do... at least from my own experience... means:
    1. too tight over the instep
    2. too short
    3. too tight over the toes
    Too snug also means your pinkie pulling out through the side (quite distasteful).
    Therefore, I buy all my shoes, regardless of the last, in one size.

    Really nice. I'm in the market for a new pair of suede loafers, but fear the vamp on these might be a little high.

    Your also TTs in Van last as well? No pinky issue here, but I have low volume feet as explained to me. As in thin. B. Silver buyer advised the Van size in the Unlined Harvard. The TTs was sloppy.

    Just to follow up on this, shipping is over £10 cheaper than C&J when ordering from Peter Johnston (both Royal Mail). So unless someone can correct me, the cheapest new handgrades can be found at PJ. Unless you visit the C&J location that sells seconds.

    very good, still cheaper than Pediwear since Pediwear offers free shipping.

    Does PJ actually have those shoes in stock?

    I have no idea. They say there might be some lead time after the order is placed due to high demand. That said, I don't mind waiting a few extra weeks to $70+.

    Out of curiosity, what's the typical price retailers pay for C&J shoes? i.e. what % of the full retail price is the wholesale cost? I notice for benchgrades the pricing is pretty uniform across retailers.

    Hey everyone,

    Opinion, I'm looking to pick up a chukka. I was thinking either Brecon/Chepstow or Church's Ryder 3. I know they are different style but I can't decide, any thoughts?

    u size down 1/2 on the lined since it runs a little large? Thanks for posting the Whiskeys Harvards Namor. Did you replace? Nice Summer Fall shoe colour for sure. I look in the closet .. aside from the two pairs of Whiskeys I own, everything else is very dark. She says, oh another pair of brown shoes... so very exciting.. lol
