    I already own a pair of Swansea and Northcote and I'm currently looking to get a pair of black C&J shoes. In terms of the sole it has to be either Dainite studded or stormwelted Dainite. The reason for that is that i intend to wear these shoes in winter time too and as far as British weather goes we get 10 days per year sun and 355 days rain (if we get more than 10 days sunshine here it is called a heatwave [​IMG]) . Do you guys recommend a particular model?

    Shoe or boot, for shoe I will probably pick Dover 2 or Hallam on 348

    Ah, that's interesting. Do you think that when I stay in the same 348-last, but buying a Tetbury chukka f.e., it would reduce heel slippage as a result of the higher heel? After this post I will stop whining about the heel slippage :)

    Okay, I have a problem of international importance. Birthday coming up, and I'm treating myself to my 2nd pair of C&Js. I'm stuck between the Westbourne and the Edgware. I was leaning towards the Edgware, as I already own a captoe. However, the woman prefers the Westbourne as its more balanced (I agree the Westbourne has a much more balanced design). Help me

    I like the Edgware more. BTW, for those who say classic dress shoes aren't comfortable, don't forget the shoe's lifecycle can be very long. My C&J gets so comfortable after first resole, even better than my converse. Just enjoy your shoes guys.

    Go with the Edgeware. The color is much more versatile and I think an Adelaide cap toe can easily be had in the future.

    This is pretty awesome! Do you know if they actually replaced the insode (I know it's kind of hard to tell with the full liner)? The work on the uppers is great, especially with C&J's HG leather! I always wonder if they would do the HG soles in a BG shoe...

    Shoe is preferred. Hallam and Radstock look almost the same. Which one has a more elegant design (i.e. more elongated i suppose I should say)?
    I live in Cheshire and go out quite often in Manchester. Rain over here is guaranteed especially on a Friday and Saturday night. [​IMG]
    Topying is something I have considered but I believe that once applied you can not return your shoes to the factory for refurbishment any more.

    Hallam is on 348, so definitely more elongated. I never thought about resole by CJ, since I don't live in UK anymore... Too much and takes too long (for me anyway, some would disagree). If topy worn out, you just replace with another rubber, must cobbler got to be able to do that.

    I have the Westbourne in Chestnut, and it's a much darker brown than is in that picture. It photographs pretty differently.
