I also wrote about some history of scotch grain here for the curious.

This is my second pair of Crockett & Jones after a pair of Ralph Lauren Marlows and love them. I think eventually I would like to get a pair of Chelsea 8's. Can anyone recommend what size I should get in the 341 last? I went with a US size 7.5 with the Marlowes and 7.0 UK with the Islays.

Wearing my Islays today in the wet MI weather...

I wear the same size in the 365 and the 341. Note that the 365 is really generous since it is a boot last.

You're awesome! Just picked up the Coniston to go along with my Islays! Really wanted the Highbury... but in black not brown. Weird how only certain colors are discounted like the Brown Tetbury instead of the Black Tetbury too! :(

I actually really like that Highbury in brown, but they are out of my size (UK9). I think I'm sort of striking out. Conistons aren't in my size either. Suede Hallams are (and I already have black Hallams) but I was sort of shopping for bluchers, I have too many balmorals as it is. Kinda was hoping the Islays would be included but it looks like they are already out of my size anyway.

That's a bummer. :(

 

Going to wait to see them in person, but is Barney's Coniston a unique color? Hmm...

post #5180 of 12833

Currently I have a Connaught black size 8E (last 236). It's a perfect fit for me.

 

Unfortunately there are not many other options in the last.

 

I like the Westbourne (last 348) in chestnut. If I were to buy it would it be tight for me? There is no store near my place to try it out.

I said I wasn't going to buy any more boots for a while and then this sale happens. Just bought a pair of Conistons. Says something about my willpower.

I have the black Chelsea 5 and can confirm that the leather is different from the standard C&J calf. It's softer, more matte, doesn't absorb shoe polish properly, and scuffs easily. Not a big deal overall but I wish they used regular calf. The shoe is otherwise awesome though, one of the best looking chelseas.

Okay, so I ordered a pair of Conistons from the Barneys sale this morning.  Great price.  But I'm looking at the pictures on their site of this Barneys' presumably exclusive makeup, and it seems to me that the boots sure look like they're made on a different last than the 325.  I don't own anything on the 325 yet but tried some on when I visited their store on Jermyn St a while back.  The Barneys pics shows those Conistons with a sleeker-looking toe box and front area than the standard scotch grain pictures that you see.  They have the shape of my 341-lasted boots.

 

Do you think it's possible that Barneys would have those Conistons made up on a different last?  Or is it just the pictures?

I have the BB Cordovan in this boot, it's on the 240 last, narrower than 325 in the toe box. The C&J Harlech Brown Cordovan boot is on last 341. I only have the 341 in Ashdown PTB cordovan burgandy. Love the shoe! Compy without looking too boxy.

Every other shoe on sale seems to be on the 348 last, so there's a possibility as well.

Thanks, guys for your input.  I only have one pair of C&J boots at the moment (Harlechs on the 341 last) and the other brands I buy don't "switch" lasts on a model.  Some, like Alden, don't really have model names unless they're special makeups for some retailer.  It just seems weird to me that they'd make a boot for Barneys that's called the Coniston and then make it on a different last and use a different leather than the standard ones on that model.  If the last and the leather changes, why call it the Coniston? 

 

I'll just have to wait to see what arrives.
