Never purchased one personally but there is something similar in the shop. Personally I find them to be very versatile, especially for someone that dresses more casually in terms of suiting, so think tweed and flannel or anything with more texture instead of worsted. They look great with jeans as well.

I have a pair of islays that I purchased from barneys size 8.5 US. What is C&J UK to US conversion? Would I need a UK 7.5 or a UK 8?

Thanks!


Generally it's a full size down so I'd say 7.5 UK. That said there are exceptions depending on how a particular last matches your feet. Given that the 365 is a fuller last I'd go a full size down as a half size down might still be too large.

I'm so confused. C&J is telling me to go a half size down from Barneys marked US size....

My initial plan was to drop a full size.

Depends on the shoe. Pretty easy to return to Barneys though so I'd just order two sizes. Edit just read above. I would go one size down pretty sure their Islay is normal width

Pembroke in green grain.



A coniston in green would be nice.

Barneys did a coniston in blue grain as well

As @stevent mentioned, returns should be easy for Barney's so it wouldn't hurt to order multiple sizes and only keeping the one that fits.

The islays I have are from Barneys. The ones I'm ordering I'll be ordering from the UK. Given the vat deduction and the favorable exchange rate I can save a few hundred dollars over the price they sell for in the states. If I was ordering from Barneys I would certainly order multiple pairs.

In that case I would be more inclined to believe C&J's sizing advice. After all one would expect them to know their shoes and sizing the best. However, that is assuming that the person providing the advice is very knowledgeable, which is something I cannot comment on having never interacted with him/her.

It is my understanding that current CJ hand grade is essentially on par with EG is that correct?

 

Crockett has stepped up their game quite a bit making them closer to EG?

 

Please advise.

 

Thanks.

C&J Beaumonts in beechwood calf are here :) 

I sized down half size from the 337 last i.e. my regular UK size which is 8E. 

Fit is snug and little tight but will break in perfectly after few wears.

I have UK sourced Islays in 9.5UK and Barney's sourced ones in 10.5US.
Fit is the same.

Still waiting for my eBay Milton Polo boots to arrive from Belgium.,.

 

In the meantime, I decided to use my Saphir water proofing spray on my tan grain Pembrokes.  Although I have never got them fully wet, I had noticed that any tiny drop of water would leave a very dark patch.

 

Has anyone else used the water proofing spray on leather shoes?  Have I just made a huge mistake?

I "think" Pembroke is on the 325 last.  If that is the case, then 1 full size down from US size is generally recommended.

 

Example:  US 10 = UK 9

 

Maybe others have different advice, but I find CJ 325 to be TTS.

 

Thanks.
