1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I've generally found that Ben Silver sales price >= most other stockists' regular price

    Seems weird to me that is the case. Wonder if most of their customers have wider than normal feet.

    The C&J's they carry in US D (normal) width are not on sale, suggesting there is more demand for D than E. it appears they have overstocked their E widths as they have been on sale for quite some time.

    Bought my first pair of C&J shoes yesterday, the Westbourne in black and Monkton in chestnut. Couple of questions, do you guys treat or condition your C&J's before wear and will the woodlore shoe trees work for these shoes? Thanks

    Another interesting note, the gentleman that I bought the shoes from gave me a two jars of Meltonian cream, one in brown and one in red mahogany and told me to mix them to create the chestnut color.

    For my chestnut Westbournes which are from the benchgrade collection I use Saphir cognac, both cream and wax. Sometimes I throw some Mahogany on the toe cap (1/4 of the time), but only the wax not the cream. For my Hangrade Somervilles, which are also called chestnut (but are a completely different color - much more red), I use Saphir mahogany cream and wax.

    Good to know...I prefer Saphir too but he did not have the creams in stock, only the wax. I'll have to add the mahogany to my next Saphir order.

    OK, got it. Read that wrong and thought you meant that they only sell US E width.

    If I am a size 8 in the Rain last for Carmina, 8 in Hiro last for Meermin, would that translate to UK7,5 for the C&J Connaught or Hallam last?

    I also debated getting the brown Antique Nubuck Tetburys but i went for suede instead because i couldn't find any info on how antique nubuck ages.
