    I wish C&J would bring out a pair of cognac coloured shoes in a 341 or 348 last. I'm not sure why they are so reluctant on this colour. Apart from the ocassional model (like Drummond) this colour doesnt seem to feature much in their collection.

    On another note, does anyone know where I may be able to buy some laces that are similar to those used by C&J please?

    I got curious on your request about laces and I made a quick check on google and I've found this on grafford.se

    No all the models get discussed here all of the time but I love these shoes and they are one of the most comfortable shoes I have in my collection!
    I may get them in the mahogany as well soon!

    Hi,

    Am looking for sizing advice.

    I am currently on Church's Consul 173 last, size 6.5G (wide).

    Keen to try C&J, but unfortunately they are not available in stores in my part of the world for me to physically try them.

    Can anyone who has tried Church's 173 last, in G sizes advise which C&J lasts (and width) matches well?

    Thanks.

    I have a 9G Church's Ryder III Chukka boot (best fitting shoe in my wardrobe) and I am always a size UK 9 E in Crockett Jones.

    I owned this model in that last and fitting. If you're looking for a C&J model similar to the Consul, meaning, oxford model in calf and single leather sole, I'd advice you the Connaught 236 last. E fitting which I own too.
    If you have a wide foot, go for the same size of the consul: 6,5 Uk E. Keep in mind the Connaught are in my opinion a bit roomer at the ball foot, so I believe even UK 6 E should fit fine.
    I personally went down half of size from Church's G to C&J E regarding oxford models.
    If beside Curchs' you wear Wide fitting, go for 6,5 If for other brands you usually wear a regular fitting, go for 6 UK.

    Just my 2 cents based on my personal experience with those 2 models.

    Just curious if there is anyone in the UK who might be willing to be a proxy for the C&J "outlet" I realize this is a long shot, but I recently sold my Tetbury's because the 348 does not work for me, and I wanted to replace them with the Brecon chukka.

    If not no worries.

    Best,

    DL-

    I'd like to change the colour of at least one pair from that kind of reddish tan/chestnut colour to a plain and darker brown. What i have here is Saphir Pommadier and Saphir Pate de Luxe wax in dark brown as well as in black. Will this work?

    Yes indeed,
    However a mahogany brown as intermediate shade would be better to create more depth.

    Apply only few thin layers of creams, saphir cream is seriously very pigmented.
    I made mistakes in the past abusing with its use.

    Try to use more the wax which is easier to remove in case of error.
    Use black only on toes/ heels.

    Hope this help.
