    BTW Great job on the MTOs Brummie, IMO the rough out material and the sole unit gives the last shape a nicer silhouette than the regular Snowdon. very nice.

    Yes those look just great with the roughout. I like every detail on those - lots of envy here ;)

    LOL, what I meant was that I wear all my shoes on a rotation and I have shoes and boots from EG, C&J ( Holland &Holland) , John Lobb, Berluti, Yuketen.

    The only shoe I have not worn to work is a pair of my St Crispin! and my JL 2005! I work near an industrial site and have to walk through lots of mud, water and dirt to get to my office.

    As CT Brummie has said they only look better and I believe that adds to the character of the shoe.

    How long have you been wearing this shoe? It looks very well maintain.

    Nice. My pair has aged nicely. Are those the tan ones? I'm guessing it looks darker because of the lighting.

    Hi Edmund they're almost new still this is only the 3rd or 4th wear of light use

    Dr.: I believe CJ's standard tan scotch Grain. And the lighting is a little dim/yellow in that room of my house which might make them appear darker.
    It's the standard color from Barney's website got from their sale last yr.

    For the non-suede version ("antique nubuck") I treat them just like regular calf (i.e. I polish them occasionally with cream and wax, use reno sometimes, and will use Lexol when the time comes).

    Hey guys, I need some advice. I have difficulties finding shoes that fit properly (my left foot is broader them my right one). I have C&J 348-oxfords in UK8 and they are really too big. I also have 348-oxfords in UK7,5 that are just not broad enough on my left foot, altough i'm quite comfortable at the toebox-area.

    Now I bought Conistons in 325-last and being a broad last I thought I would be fine with size 7,5. In the shop they felt really comfortable but once I was home I tried them again and although they are still very comfortable overall I now have the impression that the two smaller toes next to my small toe touch the front of the shoe ever so slighty. Could the 325-last be made so that in length their is actually less room for the toes? And that for the 325-last a 7,5 is actually a little too short, which was not the case in a 348-last... I always heard that people sized down in the 325-last compared to the 348-last...

    I'm a bit stressed and really wondering if I should not change them for an 8UK. But in an oxford an 8 is really too big for me.

    Very strange. Any advice? Play safe and size up a half size? Off course, my boots are not broken in but i doubt this will change anything length-wise?

    ^the 325 last wouldn't work for me if I sized down half a size as I'd have the same problems that you're having. With my proper size they fit perfectly with a nice hefty sock suitable for this time of year!

    If I don't mind darkening my boots slightly, I use Obenauf's Leather Preservative, a coat of cream and multiple coats of wax (necessary to get a shine, after the Obenauf's LP) before the first wearing. Then, it's just wax and, occassionally, Saphir cream.

    I'm wanting to pull the trigger on a pair of Tetburys. I was trying to buy them from Robert Old 1909, but I had to run to a meeting before I was able to complete checking out and my session timed out while I was out, when I went to go through the ordering process again, they were out of stock in my size. I was hoping to have these stateside before New Years, that may not be an option though.

    Does anybody know a stockist that has the Tetburys in? Or does anyone have a reliable C&J salesperson they use often at one of the stores? I thought I had a reliable one whom I've already ordered a pair of Skyes through, but I haven't heard back recently about my recent inquiries.

    Thanks for any help!

    Unless there's a sale at Robert Old then just order them direct from the C&J store on Jermyn St.
