    Wonderful shoes sir. I'm sure your golden Harlechs will arrive soon.

    Decent, eh mate? Still very much second fiddle to my Islays, even though these are arguably classier boots. Spent a decent hour in the shp today, always good to have a choice of several teas whilst chewing the fat with Mark.

    I'm having a rare evening of polishing tonight so, weather permitting, expect a couple more pics tomorrow...

    Any of the CJ Stores will, don't know about factory shop. They are only open Friday afternoons GMT 2-5pm. I might pop in once or twice a month and their phone is ringing off the hook. The place can be really busy so sometimes they can't answer all the calls, if you gonna ring ring later in the afternoon. Whether they'll post out I dunno. Assume so but Worth asking the question.

    You sure on sizes etc

    Shoes are a little less ruddy in real life. I only actually polished the latter pair; the other two just got a coat of Lexol to condition them.

    I did, however, go to town on this beautiful old pair of Church's Consul which I'm guessing are three if not four decades old.

    Stunning boots! Are these the Harlech in the standard dark brown shell?

    Dependent on which shoe £130-180GB

    the staff said before Christmas that it was rumoured that CJ would be putting up factory shop prices as they had remained static for too long while store prices had risen.
