    Where did you get their email address? Did you simply email [email protected]? I tend to not get a response from that address sometimes.

    Depends why you ask, any context? Demi boot monk.... Even colour choice will have some impact, LUK :)

    NY, had nothing in my size. Some pairs I liked in UK though.

    Can someone remind me what shipping method does C&J ship to the US, and what duties are involved?

    I might be misremembering, but I could've sworn that just a few years ago handgrades were retailing for around/less than what the samples are selling for currently.

    Thanks, I emailed them but haven't heard back. Unfortunately I'm a 12.5 or 13UK... So they might not have anything in my size.

    Please B, no need for the sorry. I've looked at Portman and yet to try on as ordinarily if I do then I walk away with them! Restraint? I don't think so. I think it's coz I'm not sure about a Demi. I do C & J, I like the boots, I like the shoes. Demi... That said, they look great as all CJ do and the Beechnut open up a range of uses in any strong shoe/boot/Demi rotation. Quite the dandy. (You got me thinking) You'll pull the trigger anytime soon? Ps check out the price as seem a little ^

    Last shipment from the 92 Jermyn St store in October was shipped to me via ParcelForce in the UK and then by the USPS in the US. No duties involved, luckily.
