    From my understanding the sales are twice a year (which occur at the same time with the UK sales). The sales typically do not cover stock shoes such as Islays unless they are seconds. I believe the next sale starts right around boxing day?

    I used to live in NYC and frequented them often during their sales.

    It's a sample sale essentially. Discontinued or floor models.

    As it's dependant on individual last's from different factories, you can't call them equal. But I would say that it's pretty close.
    FWIW, I use E in C&J (238, 325 and 341) and F in Church (100 last). I find the 341 last to have the best fit.

    Thanks soender. The F width (138 last) in Church's fits me well. It's a UK 6.5. I have my eyes on the Westbourne. Just wondering if I should go for a 6.5 as well.

    I measured a US 8 on the brannock

    I measured a US 8 on the brannock device.

    I've read some members here going down to 6.5 on the 348 last.

    Thanks for the information, but what exactly are stock shoes? Do they only have the exclusives made by C&J on sale around Christmas/Boxing Day?

    If so, I may as well just order me some Islays instead of waiting futilely. Wonder if they ever have sales in the UK...

    Ordering your Islays is probably a good idea.

    I doubt they will discontinue those any time soon. Ask the C&J rep. on this forum for any future sale details...

    How often do you have to re-apply the Sno-Seal? I was planning on using it for a pair of boots this winter.

    All depends on how often the boots are exposed to the elements, mate.

    Most of my boots and shoes are designed for walking and they all tend to get waxed a couple of times a year with similar products, more if they need it.

    Monitoring my wife to ensure she's following the Mac method for breaking in her Chelsea boots. Most expensive footwear she's ever bought. I think I've created a monster...

    Dear Isbister,

    There is a big possibility that we could have changed supplier in that time, although it would only have been out of necessity, following a reduction in quality of the previous leather or lack of availability etc.

    All the best,

    BootSpell, how did you get your wife into premium footwear? My GF wears 3yr old run over Bjorn walkers and insists that she's just fine.

    Picked up these Tetburys today in the Crockett and Jones flagship store in London. Very happy with them and the service!

    Be, why would you want your GF to be into premium footwear??? That could be distrastrous for her budget (maybe yours, too?)! Seriously, my wife usually looks for sales and buys nice enough looking shoes/boots but cheap ones. They inevitably disintegrate in a year or two. I'm not sure she's still "into" premium footwear but I'm still kinda worried.

    In this case, she was waiting for me in the C&J store on Jermyn St while I was trying on boots and we were there for probably a couple of hours. She kept watching the C&J sales girls walking by and finally asked about the shoes/boots they were wearing. That was the end of that. She spent more than I did that day.

    I have a feeling it was just because we were on vacation and she felt less reluctant to spend money. We'll have to see going forward. Why don't you try buying your GF a nice pair that you think she'd look good in?

    Those look great! Hadn't seen that makeup before. Where did you get them?

    BTW, welcome to SF.
