I was at one of the C and J stores in London just now and one of the assistants kindly told me that the price would go up tomorrow so its best to buy shoes today. According to them its inflation increasing the price of leather. I can't remember exactly but cordovan will be around +£40, hand grade +£30, standard grade +£20... (I can't remember exactly so please don't quote me on this one). Just thought I should let you C and J fans know. Sorry if it was already known.
