    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Can you only but C&J online from Barney's in the US? I don't live anywhere near a C&J store, but I'm tempted to one day make a trip just to check them out and ensure proper fit/sizing.

    Are there ever any regular sales for C&J?

    Some Ralph Lauren shoes, lots of Brooks Bros Peal & Co shoes, several Paul Stuart shoes, etc are all made by C&J. Any of the BB Peals that have a sole and heel nail pattern like this one are made by C&J. All of those stores have sales. C&J in NYC has a sample sale once a year I think.

    Also various C&J for BB (Peal) models have channeled soles as well.

    Was told in NYC C&J (not to harp on this, but by an extremely unhelpful and taciturn sales rep) that sale is once/year only. In summer, I believe.

    Actually, Somatic's question got me wondering, is there a list of current Paul Stuart shoes by C&J? It's been a little while since I've been in the store, and obviously they have more in the store than online, but it seems like their online C&Js are priced at $628.

    Westfield = Westbourne
    Preston = Exmoor
    Earl = Monkton
    Mervin = Merton

    Rose = ??
    Is the Wingtip Monk Strap C&J? Any other Paul Stuarts?

    It's not quite though, right? The Sydney has some stitching at the front of the sides of the strap that the Rose doesn't have.

    You're right, the strap looks like that of the Boston.

    Forgot about them! They've had some good deals at decent discounts. Just nothing I've been interested in or in my size. FYI they currently have these in US10 for $483:

    ... and these in US8.5 as well:

    Dude, those brown Weymouths are incredible. I've got a pair in black that have held up incredibly well despite my best attempts to destroy them. Now with a single photo you've convinced me to diversify the portfolio.

    Dear Sirs,

    Would you know the UK sizing equivalent of a C&J for Peal & Co US9D in the 341 last? Would it be an UK 8 E?

    Thank you.

    If the info I was given by C&J is correct, their Peals are half a size different from their UK offerings. Also, since they have stated they don't send wide widths to BB, only standard E and narrow D, that just complicates things.

    I would guess your US 9D Peal would convert to UK 8.5D in C&J sizing.

    You might be better of confirming with the C&J rep. that visits these forums or calling a C&J store...

    Man I love my new Islays!!!! [​IMG]

    How do you care for them in regards of waterproofing?

    I'm leaning towards using spray instead of Obenauf's since the latter darkened and dulled my Red Wings quite a bit.

    I use Saphir Renovateur/Créme 1925. Works a treat. Idk about "waterproofing" per se, since this would suffocate the leather, but it makes the boots waterrepellant well enough for day to day wears here in Sweden.

    I use reno only to the point where the patina gets too deep for my taste, then I use 1925 for some repigmentation. The scotch country wears and ages so well tho, and the boots love som patina imo. Also they won't get too shiny for casual wears with reno only.

    Really eyeing the Islay... And several other ones haha.
