    Certainly not, that is the beauty of English shoes! Timeless, subtle, soft, supportive and durable. They should last you quite a long time.

    Marno76, wear them, these shoes should last you 5 to 10 years if taken care properly, and you may consider topy too.

    And there is nothing shows more class than a well worn highly polished black cap toe in a wedding! Or any other appropriate occasion.

    It seems normal a price incresase over a decade, but 100 pounds over 270 in the last 3 years seems uncommon. The question is, do you think a C6J Chelsea 3 at 370 pounds is becoming an overpriced product?

    Is there a good place to buy them cheaper?
    It is for the 325 last.

    Does the C&J NY shop not have an online store?

    I use Woodlore Epic trees on my 325; I got them from some SF sponsored retailer but I can't remember (sold shoe trees and other cedar accessories). I've tried the BG trees in the 325 but the do not seem to fit well in them.

    I use Woodlore combination cedar trees in my 325's. Pick them up from Nordstrom Rack for ~$10

    I prefer CJ shoe trees. For my 325s, I found the CJ shoe trees fit better than the Epic. But for my Islay, 365, I prefer the Epic. Better prices when you purchse them from the UK, that is without custom or fees.

    You still have a wonderful pair of shoes to wear.

    Similar here. I typically use Alden split-toe cedar trees in my C&Js and have never had any problems.

    Can you only but C&J online from Barney's in the US? I don't live anywhere near a C&J store, but I'm tempted to one day make a trip just to check them out and ensure proper fit/sizing.

    Are there ever any regular sales for C&J?
