Thank you kindly for your reply! Not sure yet what I'll get, but very much looking forward to my first C & J boots.

Cheers.

 

I think definitely dont size down, the 348 last appears to be C&J's most narrow and unforgiving last. I disagree with point 3 though, Northcotes (in either color) would look wonderful with a suit!

 

I've heard the Camberleys are very tight on the instep - is this true from people's experiences? Would the Tetburys allow for a better fit due to the laces as opposed to monk straps?

Hope this helps.

I have shell Onslows and I do wear one size down from my US Brannock size.

It eve feels a bit roomy that I might even be able to go down 1.5 sizes.

C&J is now making many Tetbury in both Wax Calf but also in their standard burnished dark brown calf.

 

I am sure if you ask your nearest C&J retailer they will have both options available to you.

 

The main advantage to the Wax Calf is greater water resistance. Otherwise they are very similar.

Thanks! Might be helpful with the daily summer rain here in South Florida.

Sure...if you wear boots in the summer. Personally I don't.

Just got my first pair of C&J’s (Lowndes as pictured) and I must say I’m loving them. The fit is spot on and they are super comfortable to walk about in all day.

 

They were a bit of a rescue from the original owner, who not only has a G width foot, but didn’t seem to keep them on trees or care for them (they were loose in boot of his car when I picked them up  :S).  Apparently they’ve never been worn outside the house, and I’ve seen display models in worse nick. Anyway, a coat of renovateur and pommadier and they look good to go.   The toe seems to be wearing quite heavily (not worn in the rain) so they’re off getting Topy put on now.

Nice double monks!  Good find.

 

I also use those CT shoe trees.  I have them in all my shoes now.  Such a good fit and a good heel section too unlike some trees.

Hi all,

 

So I've found a very nice pair of brand new Camberley boots in black currently on sale on ebay! Size is UK 6.5.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/132013831421?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1257.l2549

 

I normally wear size 7 for most shoes (although I do have a few Cheaneys in 6.5), so would these be too small for me? How is the fit like for the Camberleys?

 

I had previous thought I shouldnt size down but the potential savings are really tempting....

 

Would it be worth buying it and if its too big have it stretched out?

The Camberly is on the 348 last, which is a low instep last. So it may or may not work for you depending on the shape of your foot.

Nice boots, the creasing tells me that the seller has worn them more than just a couple of times inside the house as stated in the listing.  Doesn't mean that you shouldn't go for them though, just don't be sad if they are not factory fresh.

Could be good to use this to check your sizing then file a Not as described case on ebay to return this (j/k not recommended)
