    Why blame the BoE? Hasn't the pound been rising relative to other currencies? So assuming they import calf from the EU, should prices be going down and/or staying the same?

    That's annoying. They went up something like 6% last year as well. Trouble is, at this rate C&J BG is getting awfully close price-wise to AS exclusive, which are better shoes. They'll have to up their game to avoid people jumping ship. It's a bit further away for the HG line, but if prices end up north of GBP500 then it's tough not to justify EG or G&G.

    Thank you for all of the help everyone, really appreciate the input. I think I will try to order from C&J on Jermyn Street (sounds like sooner rather than later). As for sizing I attempted to contact the NY store but have yet to receive a reply, any advice as to which Jermyn Street store I contact for help with Skye 2 sizing and ordering?

    Arrived in Paris today and one of my first stops was the C&J store on Raspail. Picked up a pair of Islays and sized down a whole size from my Alden Barrie US8D to UK 7E. Here is crappy hotel room iPad pic of the new boots

    Also took the following pics of the store

    Bought my first pair of C&J today, the Westbourne in black. I believe my next purchase will be the Monkton for summer.

    @lagsun - awesome pics thanks! looks like they have much more variety in terms of leather colors! I'd love to get there at some point to check it out...certainly different from the typical C&J store with shelves of brown and black and a few chestnut/burgundy.

    @Cuttingboard - I highly recommend the Monkton. Great shoe...especially in chestnut [​IMG]

    Like PCK1 said, that really is a very different aesthetic than the London shops (or the NY location which looks he same). Such totally English shoes almost look out of place.

    Did you check out the bespoke shop onsite?

    Monktons are rare species, hard to come by. I have ordered a pair in early January, ETA is April [​IMG]

    Thanks.


    Not sure. I was a little delirious from my 11+ hour flight and was so focused on the Islays I didn't pay much attention to the other shoes.


    This was a small shop and I didn't see anything else. They had winding stairs down to all the shoes. Was it there?


    Thanks for the sizing advice. Another pair of Islay in the Bay Area soon.

    Yes, that's what I want, the Monkton in chestnut for summer. :D

    Its hard to find in Chestnut...I'd recommend getting started now if you want it for summer.

    I got mine in NY because they just by chance had 1 pair...they normally do not stock it in chestnut.

    It's a sharp shoe...and one of my favorite if not my favorite of C&J.
