    Agreed, if it is just a resole and other small items maybe it is better off just taking it to your local cobbler.

    This is a MTO from a store in Sweden, Westbourne in polo suede. I really like this and it´s to bad there out of my size or that C&J doesn´t make Westbourne in this leather, otherwise i would have bought them immediately :)

    Was eyeing a pair of black Wesbournes in eBay but the seller shipped to everywhere EXCEPT the US... unfortunately they sold before I could find a proxy :cry:

    I think the punching too small. Larger punches would be nicer. I have the Wesbournes in chestnut and plan to get the Alfred Sargents in oxblood soon as well.

    Looking for some recommendations as to new C&J rubber soled shoes, as I need a pair to beat up when its raining here (its always raining :( )

    currently have a pair of Westbournes in chestnut, Wembleys in brown, and 2 suede boots that i forget the names of. one with a rubber danite sole in brown suede and one with a leather sole in blue with a cap toe. :)

    I was thinking about about a pair of Hallams in black or A monkton or something but I have way to many cap toes already. maybe a derby instead? Any thoughts?
    I dont have any good pair of black dress shoes so I am leaning that way.

    also any decent deals on C&Js right now?

    I like the Pembroke for rainy days (I have a pair in the scotch grain). You could check here if they have a pair they can send to you immediately.

    I am not a big fan of pebbled leather, just looks cheap to me somehow... I would have to skip those... thanks though

    I actually think they're a great looking country shoe but that's just my opinion. I don't know about cheap looking but C&J are quite happy to put it on the front page of their site ...

    In any case, you can go to here, filter by sole and take your pick - looks like a ton of choices there. Also, the Monkton isn't cap toed so you could still consider that or maybe a dark brown Swansea if you want a wingtip derby.

    Pembroke is also available in C&J's corrected grain 'Cavalry' calf leather on a danite rubber sole in burgundy and black colours. Ebay seller 'Salsalocust' who has posted on the forum has a nice e.g. in burgundy here:

    I've handled a pair in black and the corrected grain is no way near as plasticy as Church's polised binder leather.

    They look great inimitable, inspired me to take a photo of my Marston, my only loafers, they are about 2 years old and I've always been impressed with the leather quality of this pair, I only brush before and after each wear, I think I have polished this shoes only twice in 2 years.

    [​IMG] Cliffords 2 weeks in a row... trying to break them in to hopefully decrease the heel slippage.

    Those Marstons look great! Really nice brushed look!


    Are you wearing the Cliffords every day?

    I should clarify, I wore them once last week and once this week. Been trying to break them in... not break them :D
