I am looking to pick up the Skye II boots in dark brown shell, but have a few questions for the esteemed members of this forum.

First, where to buy?
I'm located in the US, in Chicago. I contacted the New York store, who informed me that they would cost $1150. On C&J's website, the price is listed as 675 pounds, or about $814 minus vat at the current exchange rate. Is it possible to buy from C&J in the UK to get a more favorable price? Or are there online retailers in the UK that I could order from? (I haven't found stock on any UK sites yet.)

Second, sizing. 
I am a pretty standard 10D on the Brannock device. I don't own any C&J shoes yet, but take a 10D on the AE 5 last pretty comfortably. Having read through a few (hundred) pages on this thread, am I correct in assuming that I should go with a UK9 on the 335 last? 

Thanks all. 

Order direct, I have numerous times.

Sizing Question:

I want some C&Js but I don't know where to start. I am very comfortable in A&E 8.5EEE shoes formed on their 201 last, but their 65 last is miserable. Can anyone out there with EEE feet provide some direction translating into a C&J shoe/boot? Thank you in advance for your help!

Does anybody else have the problem of "loose" ankle/ heel on CJ? I have a pair of RL marlows in 8D, fits perfect in the toe box but the back of the shoe ever feels slightly wide, not to the point where its slipping out.

Also the same when I tried on a pair of scotch grain BB boots in a 8D, 240 last. Toe was a little snug - guessing to the 240 last, but again I felt lot of volume around the ankle / heel area.

I wear my Marlows with tongue pads.  That may help your situation.  If they are new, the soles will be stiff causing the heel slip as well.  This should lessen with wear.

Gentlemen,

 

They have arrived and I am impressed with their understated tastefulness and elegance.  Especially considering they are a high boot after the; "Shooting Boot" tradition:

Just picked up a pair of Tan scotch grain boot (Coniston) from BB on the 240 last. Still debating if I should keep them. Can somebody chime in if scotch grain leather will develop a pantina. I know its a good leather for wet weather as its a little more water resistant.

Not my first C&J's but I am excited nonetheless.

How would you men rate the overall quality of those boots?

Just looking to tease myself a bit before their arrival.

Thanks in advance.

What % off were you able to grab these at during the sale?

Nice! I ordered a pair during the last 40% in-store sale from an associate online. Unfortunately, they came and were uneven between the left and right boot, so I decided to return them. I saw the scotch grain boot in store though so now may be the time for me to go in for that one....
