    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.

    After looking at them a little more the colour variation is starting to bother me. At first I was ok with it as I thought it added a bit of charcater but the more I think about it the less happy I am with them. For the price you pay you expect a much closer pairing. I think I will pop back into their store tomorrow. Hopefully they have my size in stock - i dont fancy waiting a couple of months. Thanks for the replies.

    Agree if you are paying list you have a right to be unhappy.

    are those bradfords size 9 - they look like the pair i just got

    maybe we should trade left or right shoes if it lines up properly

    I didn't notice the difference until I already wore them so I think I am going to send them back to get refinished

    I want to get the Pembroke in tan country grain from C&J. I am in the US... Ben Silver seems like the obvious choice as I am not near a C&J store/reseller, but they are out for 4-6 weeks. Any other online shops that are US based I could order from? I prefer US based as I haven't tried on the 325 last and I am assuming returns/return shipping will be easier if I keep everything state-side.

    I assume you've called the C&J shop in NYC?

    Anyone have the Tetbury or Northcote in waxed calf? If so, how does it do in bad weather? I'd mostly be wearing it under galoshes but NYC winters can be pretty brutal and I wouldn't always be able to have galoshes on, so I want to make sure they're fairly resilient. Thanks!

    That would be the obvious question but for some reason nobody ever seems to do that.


    I have the tetbury in waxed calf. I wore them the entire winter in NYC weather with no galoshes and they held up fine. They're basically my bad weather beaters.

    Awesome, thank you. Do you treat the waxed leather the same as regular calf?

    Northcote, waxed calf, London.

    Does the job, well.

    Was tempted to, bit didn't try, bulling the toe.

    Can't decide whether Saphir waxy polish or Alt-berg leder-Gris http://www.altberg.co.uk/leder-gris/history-of-leder-gris/ is better.

    Had an emergency at a contract I have in the area, sorted that, and dropped by on the way home. I put two and two together and came up with you/4. Excellent purchases there, well played!

    :D
