Pics will be required!
^^ Mine are in the air too! Hopefully a Saturday Delivery!"
You're lucky. I ordered them in the C&J Brussels store and they don't have the dark brown calf ones in stock (only the black ones). So they'll have to come from the C&J factory. I guess it will take a month or so.
Been on the fence on either the dark brown or suede Tetbury... anyone have pics of these boots after a few wears? I need something for rainy and light snowy days.
The waxed nubuck and long, long vamp can result in some unsightly creasing with the dark brown Tetbury's, I think. See below (not mine)
Mine definitely doesn't crease as much
Here are my brown Tetburys (I happen to have worn them today; you can see a small scuff on the left big toe):

I've had them for about 3-5 years and love them so much, I just bought a pair of black nubuck (I was torn between black and suede). They are my go-to business casual boots in rain and light snow. I don't think they're the waxed nubuck, but I forget the name C&J used. I do polish them with red periodically and also use Saphir's "mahagoni" colored cream to maintain the reddish tint. I think the red gives the color more depth (Several places actually look like wood grain).
Didn't get a chance to take proper pictures of my Granada until now. They are super comfy
My Peal & Co Cordovan Boots:
Looking forward to wearing these in summer. Anyone guess the last?
I thought 337 as they are made under license to the famous McAfee firm.
No shots of the soles to see if they are hand grades until they arrive.
As a relatively poor university student, my funds are quite limited. This means that I cannot spend a fortune on a pair of boots, but I think that it isn't something you can really save on.
Could somebody please inform me whether the price list below is valid for C&J retail stores in London? The model I am interested in is Chelsea 8 in Black wax calf.
Unfortunately, I do believe that things may have increased by ~5% since that list came out.
I bought a Chelsea 3 like 4 years ago at pediwear and the price was like 270 pounds, now its 370. Dont you agree that this price increase in C&J is a bit unusual, other brans seem to hold their prices for longer periods. Dont you think 370 pounds for C&J benchgrade is becoming a bit overpriced?
Yes, indeed, I have to admit that as more time passes by, I've been getting these second thought about C&J. It seems that the bench grade models are 'a bit' overpriced compared to other manufacturers.
Therefore, can you please recommend me anything else besides Chelsea 8 by C&J? Most of the time I would wear them in a pretty casual manner. Not really intending to wear them with a suit or anything.
Increase in demand = increase in prices. No different from any luxury brands like Omega, Rolex, Burberry, Porsche, etc etc...
My next pair will definitely be from Vass!!!
