    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.

    Maybe low instep causing the creasing?

    Yeah I do suffer from that although I don't really see creasing as a bad thing. I am one of those people who sees character in it. I just love well worn comfortable shoes. I'm planning to get this pair resoled over and over again.

    If you have a low instep, the 348 last might be best. I have a low instep too, and the 348 is snug around the instep.

    Ah great thanks :)

    Yeah 348 was under my radar and it fit quite well. I just went for the 360 since I preferred round toes. The lowndes looks quite nice though and I am tempted.

    I've made some expensive mistakes with buying shoes too small. The size is correct and the fit is good I just wear them a lot. Eventually all shoes will crease.

    ^^^i only brought it up because my first pair of C&J exhibited a similar creating pattern. They were fitted at tone of the Jermyn St shops and the SA considered them a good fit. For all subsequent C&J orders I've sized down .5 and the creasing has been much less pronounced. YMMV of course because different feet and lasts interact differently. Not a big deal at the end of the day - I still wear my one pair of size 9s regularly (today, in fact) and can live with a bit of extra creasing.

    What about neutral waxes? I've found that the natural leather colour will darken, just by good use of neutral waxes. I'm on the fence on colour vs. neutral wax.

    Ohhh shitttt!!!

    Excuse me if these have been posted already. Looks like new C&J models went up in the last week or so. (Since I last checked)

    Really like these.

    Split toe. Nice, but too chiseled for my tastes

    Does anyone have a guestimate as to pricing on the burgundy shell LWB?

    ^ Certain to be in the 700+ range

    Calf derbies are usually about 550

    I'm not completely sold on the concept of longwing yet though.

    Something about that long horizontal broguing that extends from the front of the shoe to the back of the shoe looks wonky to me...

    I would have preferred a burguny cordovan shortwing (Pembroke)

    I'm more familiar with Alden so find this an interesting alternative (if it's less 'clunky' then the Alden)
