Then need to start making them in UK6
I'm in Dublin, Irl Gerry where the selection of good shoes is thin on the ground even at retail prices never mind the sales. A trip to London once a year after Christmas is usually the best I can do.
Oh, you know, probably not made anymore...
Can I ask, do any of you wear your C&J shoes to the office or do you save them for special occasions?
I rotate mine with some Church's for work but a small part of me thinks they are too nice/expensive to wear for work.
What are your views?
I wear my C&J, Lobb and Carmina shoes to work every day. I make sure they're well maintained - brushed/waxed when necessary but I LOVE wearing them to work. I sure as hell don't get a chance to wear them on the weekend. They're well made shoes that are meant to be worn.
Use them and enjoy!
I buy my shoes to wear
Agreed. What is the point otherwise?
Nicely put, thanks.
I do love wearing them!!
Shoes are meant to be worn so I wear mine all the time except of course in severe weather conditions
I wear most of my shoes regulary but I do have 2 pairs I mostly wear on special occassions, one pair is a Bally patent leather that I would not wear for normal everyday use in any case.
I mean, the shoes have to be appropriate for their use, no? A pair of patent leather shoes have a very specific use.
You mean I shouldn't be wearing my red patent leather opera pumps to my regularly scheduled Monday morning executive management meeting?
Color me embarassed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No that's a good place for them - you'll be getting promoted in no time. Maybe even outside your organization . . .
good shoes make it a special occasion, even if you're just going out to get milk
So you go barefoot in bad weather?
I've found shell cordovan to be excellent in inclement weather. A quick brushing at the office and the shoes/boots are shiny again. A co-worker couldn't figure out how I kept my boots looking so clean in winter. I told him that I kept a shoe brush at work, but he figured it was because I drove in that day. (But my boots are shiny every day, even when I take mass transit.)
