    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.

    They certainly haven't, although they're pushing themselves out of good value range for me. I think the only English maker that's come close to doubling is G&G, but as a new maker I imagine that's aligned with a strategy of operating at an early loss to build a footprint, and then leverage brand equity to boost prices later on.

    Hmm really? That doesn't look like cordovan to me. It looks like scotch grain calf or something? Like the leather looks too wrinkled near the vamp to be cordovan rolls. Am I wrong there?

    Is the Galway a C&J model also? Or are you referring to an EG Galway?

    I'm talking about the original one WHICH is in cordovan.
    This is indeed not the case for this pair.

    Ah thanks, that makes sense. I'm relatively new in my understanding of quality shoe/leather so it is still a learning process in identifying things. I think this new boot is going to be really awesome :)

    FYI, I'm not sure if you're on it or not, but there is a GMTO for a C&J boot that is basically the RL Gianni going on currently. Just wanted to throw that out there, as I know they are looking to fill the last few spots.

    Ahh ok - is the insole embossed with a size and width number (4/5/6) below it (in the arch area)? that might be another clue.

    Cleverley doesn't like disclosing who makes its rtw shoes (as several past threads might attest), so I imagine it'll be hard to find out by emailing them

    No, I can't see the numbers there inside - that's one reason I didn't think they seemed like CJ made as seems to be the usual case for rtw Cleverleys.

    I missed this sale by a week. I was staying just up the street from this shop too. Well, if anyone in London would like to proxy me a pair (7.5E, tan colour), please PM me. I've been wanting to replace a pair of 7E that were too small.

    in that case based on the details/last shape etc my guess would be Alfred Sargent, perhaps some version of the AS Cambridge http://www.afinepairofshoes.co.uk/c...asc/products/alfred-sargent-country-cambridge

    AS also does windows in the lining, but typically has more info in them than the "11E" on the kingsman boot

    Never seen a C&J shoes with a size window.
    Considering that the black Kingsman oxfords are AS and identical to AS exclusive in every details, these boots are almost certainly AS, a modified cambridge/ culford boot (the stitching pattern of the facings are identical and different from Coniston)

    Today just a damped cloth and some brushing. Love the thickness, the softness and the creasing of this leather. Develops a beautiful natural patina over the years.

    I'm sure it's been discussed but a quick search failed: what is the general consensus on going from the 348 last (Tetbury) to 238 (Chelsea 3)?

    They are indeed C&J, to my eye.
    The tan monk is identical to the Malvern, the derby brogue was a model already seen for Barneys IIRC
