    Yep, definitely the C&J Arran. They're a size 11.5D on the 365 last, which I hadn't tried before. Not giant on me but a little bit big, so they'll have to move on unfortunately.

    Any vendors that can do a group C&J MTO? We see it with carmina a lot, but not with C&J.

    The soles are oak bark so those will last longer, meaning that you have to get them resoled less frequently, which both saves money and increases longevity. And while i agree that fit is the primary determinate of comfort, the HGs have far nice liners which helps too.

    I've also found that the creasing on my HG shoes is much, much, much less than on my BG's. After a day or two with trees in it's virtually gone

    So there's no way to avoid an mto charge with a group buy?

    I don't believe so, no. I don't think that it matters whether there is one of you or several of you, C&J charges about 50% more (well, considerably more, anyway) for an MTO shoe.

    I think they request six pairs to avoid MTO fee. If they charged a MTO fee regardless of how many shoes that are ordered i don't think it would be so common with stores selling their own make ups.

    So C&J will do an MTO with a minimum order if we contact them directly? Or are you referring to a specific vendor?

    I don't think C&J does group MTO. It's either single MTO or buy from a store/mail order.

    I came close to putting in a special order last year fora variation on a Snowdon boot.

    The price quoted was £675, bearing in mind this was relative to last season's prices.

    I placed the order, paid, and then word came back from the factory that there was an additional charge of fifty quid for veldtschoen construction. This put the cost within reach of a pair of Galways, so I cancelled the order and headed down to Jermyn Street and bought a pair...

    Love C&J but they angled themselves out of a sale on that day.

    It would appear they have little interested in indulging a large MTO operation. As busy as they seem to be (regarding their vendors always being out of stock), I don't blame them...

    Maybe this info has already been posted, but I was inquiring about a few of the models that C&J makes for Shipton & Heneage. S&H was kind enough to confirm they were C&J and share the last #s so I thought I'd pass the info on.

    From their email:
    "The lasts are as follows:-
    Albemarle 297
    Blandford 236
    Fitzroy 236
    Winchester 236
    Bingham 240"

    I don't see 240 or 297 listed on C&Js site so they must be older lasts I suppose. The Fitzroy is on the 236 so I'm guessing Fitzroy = Connaught? The toe shape looks different on S&Hs site, I wouldn't have thought that was 236.

    http://www.shipton-usa.com/mens-shoes.html
    If you filter by Construction: Goodyear and Price: Descending I think that most (if not all) of the $385 shoes are C&J. The leather soled shoes definitely look like C&J and any of the shoes where you can see any of the inside printing it looks like C&J.

    Does anyone know if these are made to benchgrade standards? If so they seem like a steal for $385! If not, what is less about the quality? The leather quality of the uppers? Other construction? The soles look the same to me. Anyone familiar with the 240 or 297 lasts?
