I need those Hallams
as good as any of my john lobb's
I wish BB would carry the tetbury (or their own version of the tetbury).
Love the 348 last looks, sleek. Only thing holding me me back is the width.
BB's nicer models are built on 348, but I don't think anybody conclusively figured out if the sizing is an American or UK E width.
+1. I get really frustrated with the whole inconsistency with widths. As if figuring out the whole UK to US length isn't hard enough. Then you have to deal with every manufacturer in the UK having their own width nomenclature. Don't we use the same alphabet?
Puffy, C & J are quite comfortable, great photos and great choice of shoes.
Not sure either, but when I posted the question to the BB website, they confirmed that their D = UK E and their E = UK F
It gave this wide-footed bloke some hope
I have purchased a few C&J for BB models. They are all tagged as D width, and, in my experience, are a medium width, akin to a UK E width.
Audley black in action
They look freaking awesome.
Bold statement! Wear them in good health!
An invasion of black shoes apparently. These are my new Westbourne's (sorry for the crappy pic). I'm just breaking them in a bit at the office, that's why trousers don't match.
I've size downed a half-a-size from my first C&J pair (Edgware's), they were a tad too big. I'm not too fond of black shoes but I need some too match my charcoal suits. That being said, I really like the style of the Westbourne's. I like those Hallam's as well but I want those in dark brown.
What's the consensus on C&J for J Crew shoes? Same quality, or lower standard? And do they ever go on sale?
Unless you're in a very formal environment, get some dark brown shoes for your charcoal suits. Much more interesting and opportunities for variety.
