Guys these may be hard (Woodlore epics) to find here in the UK :cry:

I recently picked up my 2nd pair of C&Js, the Connaught... simple straight tip oxford in dark brown calfskin (I also have the Pembroke). It's on the 236 last I believe... I took the same size as the 325 Pembroke last. Fit is as good as I can probably expect for my tough-to-fit feet. While this is a wide last, it does look pretty elegant to me, and the materials/finishing are excellent. I am a big Alden guy but the C&Js are a notch up in quality to my eye. As Watchman said, with Alden jacking prices again, C&J is about the same price for non-cordovan and deserve a strong look for a variety of styles. Currently debating between a C&J Harvard and Alden LHS... anyway just thought I would share.

They are also the same price for non-exotic cordovan offerings as well...:D

Took delivery on a pair of Weybridges yesterday in a 9E, my usual C&J size.  Too tight in the toe box.  I thought 360 last was supposed to be a wider last, so I went down a full size from my U.S. standard 10D.  Have to send them back.  $70.00 to return shoes to the UK.

That sucks, but you would take a much larger loss selling them here/Ebay/Grailed. For folks like me who don't have a store that sells C&J close by, when you factor in return costs, the NYC store's higher costs almost make it a wash ordering abroad IF you may have to return.

Now that I know my sizing a bit better I will consider ordering from the UK in the future...

+1 to AFPOS. Pediwear, Bodileys, Robert Old, etc are all options too. The standard C&J trees are £60.00.

The Saphir trees are very good too but very full fitting IMO.

thanks. anyone else have experience with the 335 / Skye 2 being short?

PSA: take an additional 20% off all Paul Stuart sale items when you add it to the cart. They probably have more C&Js in store, but at least online they have the "Mervin" (really the C&J Merton) in brown for only $301 right now if anyone wants a 348 last loafer. No idea is sizing is US or UK so maybe call the NYC store and ask.

YMMV, but the Hallams indicate UK sizing and to add 1 for your American size.

You're right. I hadn't noticed under "Size & Fit" they do say that they are UK sizes.

Hi, I'm thinking of buying the C&J Coniston boots which I have absolutely fallen in love with. 

 

I'm very tempted to get the navy color, but I am just not sure how the colour navy would work in shoes? Most people seem to say shoes need to be either black or brown/tan, and any other colours should be avoided.

 

What is your opinion on navy colored shoes for men? Would the navy conistons be versatile enough to wear with many different outfits including suit? Or too restrictive?

 

Would love some input! If any navy Coniston owners could chime in as well that would be great! :D

 

Many thanks!
