Hopefully this turns out Ok for me.

No need to size up, I have both the Harvard from FB & the marlow loafer in the same size which is my standard C&J sizing. Plus the Harvard is unlined and will stretch/conform to you foot.

Gentlemen, with the pound falling and fall approaching I'm renewing my interest in a pair of Islay's. While perusing pictures and talking myself into it, I have noticed that some seem more dark brown (almost chocolate) while others seem, not quite mid brown, but definitely lighter. I've also noticed that some retailers specifically state the color as "Dark Brown" and others as just "Brown". Are there really two variations, a lighter and darker, or are they all dark and it's just the picture lighting and misnomers by the retailers?

Now I'm confused and may decide to pass with the no return policy for sale items.

If an 8 fits me well in the 337 and 8.5 fits on 348 (due to chiseled, square toe), am I correct in going with an 8 in the 363 (almond toe)? Also, is is true to stick with 8 on 337 for loafers like the Vincent (loafers often tend to run snugger since there's no lacing).

One poster said they go with the same size for all 3 lasts while others have said to size down a half from 348. I understand each person has a different foot shape so it varies by individual thus there's no exact answer. But I'm hoping for a little more clarity.

For reference, I wear the following:

C&J 348 - 8.5
C&J 337 - 8
Carmina Rain - 8.5
Carmina Uetam - 8.5
Enzo Bonafe 946 - 8.5
Enzo Bonafe 804 - 8
Alfred Sargent 724 - 8.5
Alfred Sargent 99 - 8.5

There is a disclaimer on the page "Clearance product purchases are Final. No refunds will be made"

That seems pretty clear.

I ended up buying the Vincent from Frans, TTS. I'll report back when I have it in hard. Very hard to find info on it online, seems like there are very few photos. Not a widely sold model maybe?

Normally the Islay is made in "Dark Brown Scotch Grain", so unless the retailer has made something MTO the color is "Dark Brown Scotch Grain".

BUT there can be still difference between how the shoes came out of the factory (little difference in finish), and of course there's the difference originating from the different pictures.

The Vincent in suede is MTO, so indeed not widely sold!

I assume he's referring to the 25% off £350 deal going on.

Purdey shipped my last order via ups and I paid $50 or so in duty and fees. But that was before they raised the duty free limit to $800.

Yup. Picked up the Light Tan Coniston last time and paid about $30 in duty. Currently picked up the Dark Brown Grain Coniston for $380, would have picked up the Rough Out Nubuck also but they didn't have my size.
