    I love big punching.


    Maybe because C&J are slick shoes? :lol:

    Hello :) quick question... Should Crockett & Jones shoes come with booklet blurb in the box?

    It's just that when I bought a pair recently from C&J (instore), it was only the shoes & shoe bags in the box. But my Cheaney & Loake1880 shoes came with a booklet as well. I know it's not really important but it seems a nice touch as part of the packaging.

    I've seen RL C&J shoes come with a booklet, but haven't handled actual C&J

    Give me a well crafted pair of shoes that fits and I won't care if they come in a paper bag with an old Chinese restaurant menu.

    Can anybody here compare the fit of an Unlined Cordovan Harvard Penny to BB Unlined Cordovan Penny same size? Also, Ben Silvers pricing seems very aggressive, anbody else in the US carry the Unlined Harvards? Thanks.. On the fence with these ..

    Aggressive indeed. They carry the Coniston for $680. I got the same boot for just under $500 from Robert Old.

    I have the same experience. At the moment I have the Marlow wingtips and they are downright treacherous, and I got rid of a pair of Whitehalls after I slipped on marble stairs and dislodged my kneecap...

    FWIW, I had topy put on my Lindricks and Marlow wingtips for that reason.

    No regrets whatsoever.

    I have the CARMINA UETAM in size UK 8.5 and that fits perfect. What size do I need in C&J Last 337?

    Hi DpprDr, Cottesmore is pretty much as expensive as a pattern can get, the main vamp has a very large surface area and its shape makes for extremely inefficient clicking/cutting. We have actually decided to remove Cottesmore from our stock programme for this very reason. However, it can still be ordered as an MTO or special order.

    King Regards,
    Crockett & Jones
