agreed those are cool
I'm an 8.5 on the Brannock. I wear an 8.5US on the Alden Hampton last. It's a little roomier width wise than the 7.5UK I wear in the C&J 348 last. Lengthwise, they are about the same functionally, but the 348's chisel toe extends further, so the shoe is longer.
I wear a 7UK on the Carmina Simpson last and a 6.5UK on the C&J 348. US size usually an 8.
Vintage Crocket and Jones Chelsea boot for Swaim, Adney, Briggs
Vintage C&J shoe with V-cleet
Recent C&J for Peal for Brooks Brothers Shell Cordovan
How old are those shoes?
I can only guess, with armored heel, and a chiselled,tapered waist maybe early to mid 1960's?
I was hoping to find out by posting the logo styling at the heel pad area.
Here is a couple more.
can somebody confirms if this is Finsbury is Chesnut burnished ? Also, if somebody can post a picture of Drummond in Tan...I think this is the Beechnut (discontinued) Thank You
I think I found my answers below...carry on gents
Rand Whipped? That is a classic!
I was lucky enough to get an impromptu tour of a little part of the factory a few weeks ago, and saw how full their order books are. The situation for e-stockists and bricks-and-mortar shops isn't likely to improve soon as they're looking to supply more through their own retail outlets. Even going through their retail shops can involve a wait - I'm on an eight-week waiting list for a Skye boot via my local C&J shop.
For those who care about these things, here's a little snap of the shop floor of the factory from the other week (taken on a Saturday):
Was it still the Anatomical Boot Co whilst you were there, or had it already become the C&J shop? Either way, that's my local shop and the service there is second to none...
Thank you very much for this write up of your experience.
I've never seen the Finsbury in chestnut burtnished, but thought they would be more of a red color. Maybe the one you showed is tan.
This post has a picture of Gdot's tan Drummonds:
I don't remember which thread has a picture of mine.
^^ Thanks Winston..totally forgot Gdot's C&J loot..that was a good pic..exactly what I'm looking for...I've seen the Finsbury in Drk Brown, but not in Chestnut
Thank you......And such an elegant style.
Anyone know what Westfield's cost these days ordered directly from C&J in UK (including shipping to US)?
