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.

    If only I lived closer. They are exactly what I am after. I have already returned an 11 and now have to sell a lightly used 10.5 due to incorrect sizing. I tried on a 10 in Rogersons and although their last felt a little different, they seemed a better size for me.

    I definitely would not size up. Most take a half size down in this last and I think I may be the exception who needs a whole size smaller

    I have had these done at Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair in Fitzrovia, but you could just phone the C&J shop on Jermyn St and ask them who they use.

    Finally, if this might be of the interest of some of you, they have answered me from CJ directly. The have told me that their main line classic shoe trees are made specificly and exactly for their 325 last (which is the last of the pembroke/ grasmere and other shoes).

    Hello all,

    Any thoughts on the Teign? I believe it is the 341 last and unlined. I really like the idea of adding an unlined loafer for the summer. Any advice or experience would be appreciated. How do they hold up? Are they leather or crepe soles?

    TIA,

    DL-

    PSA: Barneys sale just went live with a handful of C&Js included. I would have gotten the Highbury if they had my size. Sedgemoor buck looks pretty good if you're in the market for one.

    I bet you can only dream of size UK9E/ US10D on those sales .. Perhaps some models no one wants anyway ..

    I've actually had decent luck in the past. Bought the C&J Clifford during a sale there for 1/2 off and the Wicklow for over 1/2 off.

    Hmm, they've added a few more since I first checked this morning ...
    Is the "Two Eye Chukka" the Tetbury? I think I'm gonna take a chance on that.

    Trafford = Exmoor?

    @Fred G. Unn Yes, those "Two Eye Chukka" are Tetbury!

    Great prices there!!!!!!!!!!!! To bad it's in the US for me, I would probably get ripped importing those to EU.

    The details look basically like the Exmoor in smooth calf, but it doesn't really look like the 348 last. Hard to tell, but doesn't the toe look more rounded than the 348?

    Not sure what last it is, but it looks to be a great shoe if you need a shortwing blucher.
