    Whether for good or bad, Chestnut definitely has red hues. The red in mine does not go away with use of a medium brown polish.

    wanted to ask about the studded dainite sole.

    Has anyone experience the "slippyness" that i have seen reported when coming in from the wet?

    How about comfort level?

    I am usually on concrete / pavement / sidewalk, fairly often in the wet.

    Would rather the medway sole, but the studded dainite seems to be the standard without going MTO.

    Am i blowing concerns about the studded dainite out of proportion?

    Given the option I would choose the ridgeway or Medway sole over dainite wherever possible. I have shoes and boots with both soles.

    I own both types. If the only consideration was traction, I may go with Ridgeway, but all things considered I'd go with Dainite. Both are very decent options.

    Excited to be picking up my Belgrave's this afternoon from the post office. I have a couple of pairs of the RL branded cordovan shoes, but these are my first C&J's from the factory.

    Very excited.

    Was looking at C&J's website and noticed that they show the Malvern in chestnut but not the Monkton. Doesn't seem correct since I thought that I ordered a Monkton in chestnut and what's the difference between the Monkton and Malvern?

    Monkton is on the 348 last whilst Malvern is on 341, 348 looks sleeker whilst 341 looks rounder in shape.

    I now have 3 pairs of C&J on 348 last - Westbourne, Hallam and Monkton, all in 9 E, and they all fit slightly differently, the Westbournes being the most tight ones and the Monktons being the most roomy ones. Even if I put two of them left-to-right sole-to-sole (let us say a Hallam and a Monkton) I can see small differences in width and length. How come?

    Having said that, the Monktons are a really good fit (after one finally manages to squeeze his feet into them).

    Thanks Cleav, actually from Robert Old, they were originally "in stock" when I ordered them. But 3 months later, and still no shoes, I emailed to find out they had to be ordered direct from C&J.

    I actually don't mind the wait, but after 6 months all of this is behind me, today is the day [​IMG]!

    How does C&J Chelsea 8 boots (benchgrade) compare to Cheaney's? Cheaney is almost half of what C&J is charging.

    Can't speak to why the Westbournes and Hallams would be different, but it makes sense that you would experience a different fit with shoes that have different closures on the same last. I have the same experience with my monks, chukkas, and oxfords on the 348 (could almost go a half size down on the Tetbury's).

    Just pulled the trigger on a pair of Skye II's, just have to wait a few weeks and should have them in time to break in at the Spring Meet (hopefully they lend me a little luck).
