    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.

    First post... Here goes...

    User Brianpore sold me these gorgeous C&J Cottesmore jodhpur suede beauties.

    What fantastic shoes. I cannot overemphasize how much I love these. Everything from the fit to the feel to the finishing. Wonderful.

    I added some toe taps on my own using electronics screws. I've done this for several pairs of shoes and they have held up really well.[​IMG]

    Anyone know any places that sell C&J and use the Euro? Would be nice to take advantage of the dollars parity.

    I think Robert Old ends up being cheaper than the other mentioned retailers.
    http://www.robertold.co.uk/shoes.html?designers=crockett_jones

    They've got free world wide delivery via Royal Mail so very low chances of having to pay duty/brokerage fees.
    Looked like Upper Shoe wants 60eur for DHL to USA which mean high chances of having to pay another 8.5% plus fees.

    Hi guys,

    Is the consensus to go TTS on the 363 last? I wear 8uk in the 348 which is a touch long. I wear 8uk in most lasts in other brands.

    Thanks!

    That reminds me, Edwards of Manchester never had a 25% off code for their sale this winter. Or did they and I missed it? I've picked up a couple of C&Js with that code in previous years.

    Soliciting advice from the pros (again). Looking for a wingtip boot. considering the C&J Skye and the Alden Wingtip on the Barrie Last. I currently have the AE Daltons which IMO are too narrow and a bit too dressy for jeans. I'm usually in casual clothing ,mostly jeans so thought the fuller and more substantial Alden would look good. I can't tell if the Skye is too slim/svelt to be worn this way- If anyone has any experience with one or both could you please help a boot brother out?

    Thank in advance

    R

    X posting for maximum data gathering..

    Hi all, C&J newbie question. I am wanting a chunkier Chelsea than the current offerings so am wanting to get a custom made one on either the 365 or 224 last (Islay and Chiltern), can you see that working and on which? Much appreciate any responses.

    They used to make a Chelsea on the 365 with a wing in oiled calf (much like Snowdon but a "beige-ish" colour). It might be worth contacting C&J directly and ask if they can send you any pictures?
