    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Nice work, take care of the shoes ;)!



    I agree, handgrade collection is very expensive (even tho it's C&J best shoes) but for a buck more you could get better.

    They should start having toe pegged, fiddleback waist in their future collection
    Even New & Lingwood had fiddleback waist shoes, price a bit lower than C&J, albeit very narrow selection

    p.s. I have heard C&J make shoes for N&L

    Not just cosmetic things. They just feel very flimsy and light compared to EG and G&G, JL and other higher end shoes. When I think of an English shoe I think of something very solid and sturdy, C&J isn't that at all.

    That's why most of the models they have would be £100 plus, except JB ST. C collection which is about £900 per pair

    TBH there is not much UK local brand that can compare to C&J handgrade is it? The cheaney will not be able to tell until worn in

    ANy suggestion? AS exclusive range? but they don't have a brick and mortal store!

    Yep. Unlined and very light. I had a pair by Leffot that were too big, so I sized down and had it made with the red brick camp sole.

    I am not sure I understand your question. If you are asking for a brand that can compare to C&J handgrade I am not sure what to tell you. I mean AS primier, Barker Black, Cheaney. I think most of those at this level suffer from the same issues. I am sure part of it is the price point.

    Yep, you are correct, but TBH some EG are flimsy, normal JL are overpriced, the only consistent shoe maker is perhaps G&G but their last are relatively narrow

    Perhaps I am just not there yet, soon or later I will, and really for myself, your typical uni student, surely is doing great

    I heard about Meermin on SF a few weeks ago and decided to take a shot since they are very reasonably priced. Box showed up yesterday! I neglected to take pics until after I wore them but here goes (laces apparently loosened up a bit, should have re-tied for pics, oh well):

    The "New Rey" last actually fits my foot really well. The closest thing I have to compare it to is probably the C&J 348 last. My wife got a pair of loafers with a heel that she loves too. Certainly for the price (212 Euros without VAT) I'll be ordering again. Mr. Albaladejo was a pleasure to deal with although TNT Shipping was a bit of a drag. Here's a link to Meermin's tumblr and Vimeo site, their main site doesn't really have anything on it yet.
