    I've been told that it costs 60 pounds to change the leather sole of C&J shoes with dainite. Does it mean that I may wear the shoes till they need resoling and then ask C&J to chage the sole to a dainite one for this price? Or is this applicable to new shoes only? I have hallams and some 358s on leather and wanted to try to wear them as is but not sure if it is reasonable in our conditions. But if the future dainite resoling is an option I can try at least .

    How much does C&J charge for resole and conditioning the uppers on a pair of suede shoes?

    Dddrees is spot on - Go for calf leather as your first calf...Suede can be high maintenaince

    C&J's is a great call for your maiden voyage into quality, well made shoes on a selection of
    sleek and stunning last.

    Now from what I understand the Westbourne that your poseted are Chestnut "Burnished Calf". The Selbournes are Chestnut "Antique Calf".

    Idoes someone have pics showing the difference in color between Chestnut Burnished and Antique? From what C&J told me...the Antique is darker than the Burnished

    Good morning!
    Here I reflected to buy couple of good kroketovsky footwear for the spring-summer. But because of impossibility to measure to have to guess. I have a footwear from C&J and from Trickers. All couples can be carried and even it is necessary, but the ideal and isn't present. And it would be desirable. Maybe who will prompt. Especially a problem that if even there was an opportunity to measure most, questions would be not less. As it is frequent when I measure it seems everything well, and you will wear, and not comfortable footwear.
    Total: (all width E)
    C&J:
    341 oxford on Dainite at a rate of 7 - a heel and completeness as slippers, but fingers in a bunch also draw in around a little finger. Not in front and not sideways, and as though on a bevel. I wore in long, but all the same, around a bevel of a little finger draws in.
    I.e. most likely doesn't suffice are long and they rest against strongly being narrowed sock of footwear.
    341 oxford at a rate of 7.5 - sit normally, but the heel dangles. I.e. rather everything doesn't dangle that absolutely, but fidgets. And it is very easy. The little finger on a bevel all the same is slightly felt.
    341 derby at a rate of 7.5 - as well as oxford at a rate of 7.5 but if to put on a thick sock.
    337 oxford at a rate of 7 in general as poured in, but completeness around a heel and the foot middle slightly with a stock. Thus the little finger all the same draws in in front and sideways. Not so strongly as in 341 at a rate of 7.
    348 boots at a rate of 7.5 even on a thick sock dangle in a heel (decently), are free in the middle. And in a sock the most comfortable of all footwear. It seems, would take on the half-size less, almost for certain. But somehow doesn't fit in. Because 341 at a rate of 7 it is obviously small, 337 at a rate of 7 it is it seems good. According to the logic of 348 at a rate of 7 haven't to fit. Probably, but why then 348 at a rate of 7.5 so it is more. And even in comparison with derby on Dainite in the same size in a block 341?
    I thought that feet wide. So isn't present - quite average.
    - 26.6 cm length
    - 9.5 cm width
    - 23.0 cm volume
    For an example boots Trickers on very wide block (not to compare at all with 341 or 337) at a rate of 7 in a heel dangle, and the little finger all as isn't comfortable (sideways in front). Though at all fingers and completeness ahead don't clench it seems with a stock.
    Strange somehow.
    I thought to take Loafer-y in a block 341 or dover 2 in a block 348. But it is absolutely unclear.

    I've taken on board on your advice and will most likely go with a dark brown calf leather first. But now to choose which one....audley or lonsdale in the dark brown antique calf???
    Or even chestnut belgraves ???

    Anyone own both the C&J for RL Lindrick boot in brown shell and the C&J for RL Marlow in brown shell? If so, do you find yourself using both, or have you found the purchases to be redundant? I have one and am considering the other. Thanks.

    I might not be the best source from my collection, but I ALWAYS find situations for both (and all my other shoes). :)

    Hello gentleman -

    First time poster on the thread. After browsing thru all the fantastic pictures of the islay boot on the thread, now I really want one! [​IMG]

    I have looked into pediwear and bodileys and was wondering if the thrifty shoppers here knew of any other options that are cheaper?

    I also have a friend in London at the moment and that could be an option. Any suggestions on that route (which stores etc) would be welcomed.

    Absolutely not. Yes, they're remarkably similar and certainly overlap stylistically (as long as your pant leg is hiding your boot's calf as it should) but I use both regularly and for different reasons.

    That said, I don't think the average observer notes the difference. Some probably think I'm wearing the same shoe until I cross my legs.

    Whichever you're missing, get 'em. Then revisit the RL thread in 2 years to see how much more they cost and thank yourself for being smart enough now to pull the trigger.
