The C&J rep thinks they only size their boots down have a size for the US market, but I'm not so sure. I also have an 8 uk soller and 8 uk rain shoes that both fit well.

 

I am a 7UK in the Oscar last and I am ordering the same size for the Snowdon GMTO.

Crockett and Jones for Ralph Lauren chocolate suede balmoral.

LDV, thanks for your help.

 

I jumped right in and ordered a 6.5E Cavendish loafer on 325 last.  Belatedly found out that 325 last is a narrower last among C&J's lasts.

Having said that, the 6.5E Cavendish is so tight on the width, that I now doubt any of the E-width on C&J will fit my feet.

 

Looking around on the web, there seems to be F-width C&Js available from 3rd party e-retailers.  However, on C&J's website, they only have E and G widths.  Appreciate some advice here.

 

Again, I am on Church's 6.5G on their Consul oxford model.  Am looking for C&J's loafers and oxfords.

 

Many thanks.

What do you mean by "demand"?? People shouldn't have to demand that a guest takes shoes off. The guest should ask if he/she should take the shoes off and the host will either say yes or no. Using the word demand implies that you insist to walk in their house with shoes on which forces the host to insist that you take them off.

 

You expect people to have guest shoe trees to provide???? What world do you live in? You are aware that a few hours or even days without shoes tress in your shoes won't have a detrimental effect on the latter, right?

@Marks11

I agree with You. If you want my shoes off, please provide shoe trees, felt bags and top shelf liquor for my trouble

Sorry, this was intended to be humorous. It would be great if guest shoe trees did exist though. I grew up in a shoe-free household so understand where you are coming from.

This thread is funny. Takes shoe valet service to a whole new level. And Don't forget the basket of cashmere socks and
straw flip flops. Lol

Not sure which one to order on Monday.

Islay or Skye? Both in Dark Brown Grain.

Islay feel kind of odd with 5 rows of speed hooks, disproportionate .. Am I missing something? What would be the difference between the two other than that? Not much difference in last or brogueing either ..

The shaft of the Islay when compared to the Lindrick is taller, so this may also be the case when compared to the Skye as well.

I bought some brown Loundes the other day. The first day I wore them in the rain. I know. I know. Bad move, but I live in England. After one day, the soles look like this...

It looks like at the toe the stitching was most reached. This looks really bad to me. Am I off?
post #10335 of 12783
@mimi show us what the top of the toe looks like. With shoe trees over a few days, you may be ok. You could also put a rubber tap or cover in a thin rubber 1/2 sole to avoid future wear after they dry out
