If I remember correctly, CJ NY store could get items not listed as the regular US stock.
Since I was chatting Northcote earlier today, I thought I'd PSA an 11D, Black, very gently (barely?) pre-owned pair that just turned up on Ebay with a good starting price here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/281070951178
Apparently being flipped from Barney's recent sale. No affil with seller, just passing it along for those who might be hunting it.
Icic I don't live in the US either so having it shipped from France would make more sense no vat and all. So whatcha think Portman right? That's the only boot from them I like its sleeker and handgrade
Only available in the UK. Portman has been discontinued in Paris.
I got the Cliffords and I thought the conversion was accurate (labelled US10D = UK9E).
Since we actually now have a C&J representative, maybe this can officially be cleared up with the size conversions with brands such as Barney's, Ralph Lauren, Paul Stuart, and Brooks Brothers. However, if this infringes on contractual matters, I understand if manufacturers may not be able to provide such information.
If this thread were a business, I would buy all the stock I could lay hands on. Its value just skyrocketed.
I have some C&J 9D BB Black Fleece Cordovan Captoe double leather storm welted boots that have minimal milage on them, but did see snow once. Anyway not creased and a very good looking #8 built on 240 last. PM me if interested..... This is the boot listed on the BB website currently for 1Kish. Going another direction.
Chelsea in chestnut that i polished with some dark brown in the toe part.
Same for me, US10.5D=UK9.5E
I am US 9.5D and UK 8.5E in C & J.
By Portman I mean Portman 2, and if that is discontinued someone needs to update the website.
Also the UK doesn't sell any version of the Portman if you believe the website. Where do I find the Portman 2? Or who do I contact to get a pair?
i saw a pair of Portman/Portman 2 in my size in one of the London shop on Jermyn street in size 10.5 about a month ago:
69 Jermyn Street
020 7976 2684
Give them a bell they might be able to help.
Interesting, it is a little worrying if you cannot find Portman on our website. I am looking at it now! http://www.crockettandjones.com/Product/Portman-3-Darkbrown#.UTB_IDDJR8E
Which website are you looking on?
Here is some background info for you on PORTMAN... The original Portman was on the 337 last, Portman 2 was on the 350 last (the last was subsequently dropped from our entire range) Portman 3 is on 358 last which is currently run in London only
If any other version of Portman are available in store, it will be old stock and probably only available during sale periods.
I hope the above helps.
