C&J Sample sale coming up!
Did somebody say exclusive Japanese models???
More info: Handgrade samples at benchgrade prices.
Online, or bricks-and-mortar? More details, please!
bricks-and-mortar only; happening within a few weeks.
Limited amount of samples will be coming in from Japan. Purchases are first come, first serve. There won't be a sale on regular stock.
My understanding is that the most common sizes will be stocked (lots of 7.5UK).
If anybody needs a proxy for pick up, let me know.
Sucks Japanese models don't have sizes above 9.5E
No chance of anything being UK 10.5 G width huh...
There could be; I haven't received the list of shoes yet. I'll post it as soon as I receive it.
I'll keep my fingers crossed, thanks...
NYC? Or London only?
PSA - There are a couple of C&Js size UK11 on Yoox right now, priced $396 and $359:
looking to make my first C&J purchase but have a sizing question.
went to brooks brothers and tried on some peal and co which were the 341 last. I have a pretty wide foot and an 8E US was still a bit too narrow. if I were to order a UK size, would I need to order a 7G in the 341 or is that equivalent to a US 8E in C&J? are there any other lasts the would be a tad bit wider in an E?
I believe a C&J G width would be a BB Peal & Co. F width ( or EE width). Some C&J models have H width (EEE WIDTH).
I too struggled with the Peal Co. Shoes, specifically the perf. Captoe. The US 11E was a little too narrow, so I will have to go with a UK G width.
The same question arises for me, are C&Js a full size smaller from US to UK, or only half a size smaller? I believe the SA from the NY store mentioned it would be a full size difference, but I would appreciate more input as well.
From what I have read it depends on the last, so there is no straight answer, i.e., full for some, half for others.
Normaly Im a UK 7 but I take a 6.5 for C&J shoes (well at least whatever last the Cliford and Waymouth are on.
