Extra space of 1.5 inches sounds quite much to be honest. There is pretty closely 1 inch empty void in my C&J 348E last shoes (now that's an elongated last!) at the front, and they fit me well. But what am I to judge, if they feel comfortable then they probably are the right size, however if they don't feel even a tad snug right out of the box then they might be too big. I think new shoes should allways be a little snug to start with. Try to see where the ball of the foot...
I own Loake Pimlicos in dark brown suede and they are really nice, very sophisticated and elegant and can be worn with anything. I was surpirised how much better they look in real than in the sale photos. I think the Capital last works very well as a chukka boot, a lot better than as a normal lace-up shoe, let alone the awful double monkstrap which I don't remember the name of. In fact they are superior to Tetbury design wise IMO, although otherwise I prefer the 348...
I am also interested in Pembroke. I wear size 8 E on the 348 last and I wonder what size I should go for. Pembroke is made on 325 E and 317 G lasts. Why is one shoe model made on two different lasts and widths, I am little confused. Should I take the E (325) or G (317) fitting based on my 348 size? Thanks!
Sprezzatura. How come so many misspell it btw?
Not AE but Loake; I have a suede chukka boot (Pimlico) that is considerably more generous than a calf leather shoe (Knightsbridge) of the same size and last. The Knightsbridge had to be stretched to fit. So to some extent it's a matter of materials used and upper design.

IMHO, it's worth the extra quid. I have both and there is a significant and noticeable difference between the two lines. Can you (or someone) please specify what are the main differences betweeen the two lines.
My C&J Monkton single monks have been complemented the most, actually three times now that I remember. But. Interesting to see if my new Cheaney boots (in fact Herring Langdale) will get more praise or not. Wearing them for the second time right now - no comments yet.
