^^ Yes, I paid $225 for the 1705s in mid 2013 from BiG.  Haven't worn them like my 702s or 702BRs but they don't seem like they're going to do much in the way of fading compared to the darker, heavier denim.  I got them primarily for use in the summer.
 I have ordered from one of the stores on Jermyn St in London directly.  On both those occasions, they deducted the VAT and shipped via Parcel Force (UK mail) which was transferred to the USPS and I paid no customs fees.  The shipping was about £30 each time.  I have never ordered from or priced at the New York store but compared to Barneys prices,  you save money by going direct to C&J.
^ I hope that means our waxed flesh 2045's are coming soon...
^^ Those Logen Green boots are incredible!  Sorry I missed that MTO.
Wearing my grey Wilshires for the first time today.  The fit is superb.  They are now my favorites, supplanting the indigo Wilshires...
 Thanks for your input.  It sounds like you maybe could size down a 1/2 for the Islays if you didn't wear thick socks.  I don't often wear thick socks so maybe the 365 last of the Islays might require sizing down a half from the equivalent 341 or 325 last.  Although I do find the 325 last roomier than the 341 last.  When I'm ready, I might just go the Barneys route rather than trying to save a few pennies by taking a chance ordering from Jermyn St.
 Thanks for the info.  The recommendation for Barneys is a good one, although one can save some by buying direct from C&J on Jermyn St.  But probably not enough to make up for the ease of dealing with Barneys.
 Based on your description, I'd ask if you have any C&J or Carmina shoe trees.  I don't have my Vibergs yet (and am getting more impatient every day) so I can't try them but it seems like the C&J mainline trees or the Carmina trees might do better.  They're flatter and don't seem to have as high an instep.
 Have you tried the Woodlore Epics on them?
 A little late commenting on this but I have to say that those Islays look incredible!  I'm interested in how you sized them, though.  A full size down from your Trubalance and 1.5 down from the Grant.  Is TTS 8.5D for you? Do you have any other C&J boots?  Like maybe the Harlechs or Conistons?  Did you get them in a 7E also? I will buy the Islays at some point and not sure when I'll get the chance to try them on so interested in your feedback.
