    Thanks. The suede westfields may be calling my name.

    Question regarding recrafts: When shell cordovan footwear are sent for recrafting/refurbishing, is it possible to treat the shell cordovan uppers to the original dark brown color?

    Lacing on bals in general should be in a shallow "V" shape, just as yours are, suggesting the appropriate width. Looks perfect.

    No need to be apologetic about black shoes in general or black captoes specifically. Everyone who wears professional business dress needs at least one black captoe bal IMO.

    What's the best option C&J offers for a plain black captoe? I want something sleek, but still classic enough to be used through the full gauntlet of suit-wearing occasions. I can count on one finger how many times I need a suit in a year, so I need something versatile yet clean and basic.

    +1 - either the Hallam on the 348 last from the Benchgrade range, or the Audley on the 337 last from the Handgrade range.

    Good morning, without seeing the shoes, it is very difficult to comment. So with a pinch of salt... It could be the product you are using to clean them or it could be that the shells themselves are darker today than they were 4 years ago or it could be sun damage... Years of wear will slowly take the colour out of the shoes as with most natural materials.

    You can always send them back to our factory via a retail shop to have them re-darkened although I think think they look great after 4 years of wear.

    Hope this helps and glad to hear your enjoying our shoes.

    I for one love the fact that someone from C&J contribute to this thread. Just another example of great customer service from this great brand

    Just a question for the C&J representative in this thread. Will the Granada be available only in C&H stores or will it be available to other retailers?

    Thanks.

    Does anyone have any casual wear shots of the BB Cordovan captoe boot by C&J?

    CandJONLINE do you recommend the same size for 337 as 358 last?

    It looks like the Granada is available in navy and tan at Barneys.
