    I love this shoe not only for it's practicality but obvious aesthetics. Goes anywhere any time no matter the weather. A must add for the 325 lover.

    I think belts need something to protect and help the leather to not get dry, especially the crocodile ones. Leather bags need care too.

    I have used creams to fill in scratches before, just be sure to remove excess cream off...

    Are these the #8 Harlech-y looking boots from about a year ago? If so, then damn you chipshot for not being 3.5 sizes larger! ;-)

    Yep those are the ones.. I wear my Whiskey Harlech boots much more often than these Burgudy boots and need to cull the collection.

    I had the same issue with that exact boot (seldom worn) and I sold them.

    I was at the Bay St. location in Toronto yesterday and they still have the Peal Cordovan Boot in a few sizes. They are on sale (30%) right now from $1100 (CAD).

    C&J wide footed gent PSA. From the current sale, the Jermyn Street store has the following models in wide G width sizes-

    Boston in burgundy
    Draycott in black and chestnut calf
    Grasmere in black grain
    Monkton in chestnut
    Dartmouth in black calf (H width only)

    On that note, can someone re-confirm for me if C&J is a full or a half size difference? C&J SA from NY said it was a full size, but i recall talk about a half size difference. My luck has been horrible with uncharted brands as of late, so i am tentative. My plan was to order a full price model from the NY store, but maybe the UK stores accept exchanges on sales models.

    @JubeiSpiegel - C&J sizing varies from last to last...

    Well the models i am interested in are on the 341 last, would you have a recommendation on sizing on that last by chance?

    Boston in Burgundy, Garsmere and Darycot not on sale. Just spoke with the 92 Jermyn Street .. Though, I asked for size E ..

    Only interesting shoe I could find on sale would be Handgrade Somerville Boot from 525 GBP to 445 GBP.
