    Me = happy :)

    The confounding factor about my various shoe fits is that I have flat feet and low insteps. Most (if not all) non-ortho lasts are not shaped that way so my shoes tend to stretch in various ways. I guess I could always start wearing clogs or crocs!

    that was my assumption. i know from some folks how difficult it is to find a good fit.

    Westfields - I really like this pair a lot, I love the shape of the 341 last and it fits so well and comfortable. it's a shame they don't have it in the handgrades.

    I want to get two pairs of loafers and was thinking of C&J Merton in Beechnut and Santoni Quinlan in Dark Brown rubber sole. I haven't seen the Merton in person and wanted to know if the color is closer to a tan? This way both pairs wouldn't look too similar.

    Santoni Quinlan - Dark Brown:

    C&J Merton - Beechnut: In the official picture they look quite dark.

    Though these old shoes look more tan to me:

    The official picture is much closer to the actual color. Beechnut is not at all tan. More of a medium brown which is a little on the olive side (not much red). Here's a recent pic of mine on their maiden voyage.

    They look even better there! [​IMG] Bon voyage

    Where did you end up finding them in stock and how much?

    Looks like I'll have to find something else in place of the Santoni for the tan shoe.

    I bought them direct from the C&J store on Jermyn Street. I don't remember the exact retail price - about 310 pounds before VAT reduction?

    Hi there,

    I'm a serious newbie on here but saw this thread and decided to post.

    I have a pair of nearly new C & J Boston loafers in quite a rare dark tan colour (almost a burnished look). They are a UK 10 D. Will post some pictures when I can but just wanted to gauge potential interest.

    I will accept pretty low offers as I want to get rid of them and will throw in a tin of C & J polish and if you want a pair of shoebags (the bags are from a pair of lobbs but I have misplaced the Crockett ones)

    PM me if your interested.

    I like them, the Amershams. Good for a rainy day. Was thinking about picking them up at Barneys when they were on sale. Decided to pass, because I already have a similar pair in an oxford.

    it's a fantastic material for foul weather and beating around.

    I really like the look of the rough out. Saw it in the store in London last fall. Think I would prefer it on a derby to an oxford but in either case it's a great casual look.

    Reminds of something a salesmen I know used to say. This guy sold industrial carpet that was bullet proof, but ugly. He would always offer the following guarantee: 'It will never be any uglier than it is the day you install it.' :lol:

    I do wonder it I also might prefer it on a synthetic sole - seeing as how the upper is great for rough weather.

    This is the Arran boot in rough-out that was available in the UK a year or two ago, just given an end-of-winter coat of dubbin. Great boots, and am considering a MTO veldtschoen version to make them even better for crappy weather:

    The sole is actually Dainite.

    EDIT: I'm wrong. Those are not Amershams. Amershams are oxfords and have a Dainite sole.
