@Cleav The Conistons are beautiful, but the heavy twill wool on those trousers is drool.gif

New Brown Grain Coniston's from Frans Boone

Love the golden brown color on these. Easily my favorite boot. A little undecided on the 325 last, as it's a little narrow in the forefoot but hoping they give just a tiny bit.

Funny you say that. Since ive moved from NYC i stop in from time to time to make the rounds at the shoe stores. Naturally I'm always looking at people shoes but mostly see bit laofers and AE models in walnut. Occasionally I see an Indy boot but very rare. My last visit I saw a really wonderfully worn in pair of Islay on my way to the new CJ shop, no less.

So, I've been looking into getting my first pair of C&J - the Malton. How does the 360 last compare to Loake's Capital last? I'm an 8.5 UK on the Capital. As I understand it, Loake run large. Should I size up for C&J?

Anyone ever wore the Chelsea boot in 348 for extend period? I don't have any oxford in 348 because the toebox is too tight, though somehow the Suede Tetbury in 348 and calf Northcote works for me (i.e. open lacing boots), not sure if the Chelsea will expand enough (definitely can't upsize half, it will be too long, so that option is out)?

Also since I haven't order from UK in ages, how do people like Pediwear vs. Bodiley vs. RobertOld, px all seems comparable (with shipping a bit here there small difference).

p.s. and do people get hit with custom from any of these guys (I guess I have to ask them to ship via Royal Mail 1st to have better chance?)

Unless you're ordering more than $800, you don't have to worry about customs.

If Carmina Rain 7UK fits reasonably well (little narrow on the left foot), what should I expect for 325?

I've also got AE 65 in 8E (US) that fits similar to the Rain (perfect on right foot, very slightly narrow on left at the ankle).
post #13498 of 13847
Would you gent say it's safe bet to take same size as carmina rain last for snowdon boot on 228 like going one full size down from US sizing. For what it's worth I go one full size down from my US 9.5D to 8.5uk E width for EG & gg and Saint c

Hey guys, I searched the forum for size advice for C&J but can't find what I was looking for. I say the Westbourn the other day and it's fantastic but I have some doubts about the last (348) I think it's more chiseled than Carmina Rain. I wear in Carmina Rain and Inca 9.5 UK. They didn't have 9.5 UK in the 348 at the store but they had 10 UK and it felt nice. But don't know if that's the correct move or general consensus, to go half a size up in the 348 from Rain.

Thanks in advance!
