Gayish,

Nice haul. I see you went wide and sized down 1 on the Hallam. Very smart.

You get to have the lean look and chisled toe of the 348 last but too much space in toe.

What's giving you trouble with the Carminas?

Thanks Alexsf! I wished I could have found it in 11.5 but given the nature of the sole, I'll probably wear them more in the winter, thus I'll be wearing a thicker sock

Sized down one entire size?!

The 10E are on 348 last and are EU Size, Fin's are on 341 and labelled for the US (Barney's). So, both equate to a US 11D. The Finsbury fits a little long on me, but nothing major. The Peal's fit my feet a little tight, length-wide in a 11D, so I have to purchase those in an 11.5D (I don't know that last)

Well, we'll have to let Gyasih say for certain how it worked for him.

The SA at Crockett and Jones suggested to me that we keep sizing down until the width was as snug as it could be. As the 348 last is so long and the difference in width between sizes is incrementally very small. I went only 1/2 size down from what fits me in G&G TG73. But we didn't try the wider fit. I'm betting that with the wider fit I could have gone down a full size. But I do have a slightly narrow foot.

I am between a 11 and 11.5 US D width. All my 348 lasts are 10E UK or 11D US. I have Carmina & AS Exclusive (10.5UK), Peals, AE all on 11.5D US.

These Peals are by Alfred Sargent not C&J.

They have same nail pattern as my C&J IIRC. Will post later
post #565 of 12801
These shoes are on Alfred Sargent's last # 87. Take a look on the markings on the inside of the shoe. Right above where the shoe size is written should be the last # '87'. BBs shoes typically have the last # written on the markings on the inside of the shoe. You can identify whether it is an Alfred Sargent or C&J by this last number. This is a better way of distinguishing between BB shoe makers than the nail pattern on the heel i.e. single row for C&J versus double ow of nails for AS.

Regarding BB shoes, I knew AS listed the last number but C&J does as well? I dont remember seeing anything. Will check my shoes later

BB notes the last # for C&J shoes as well. For example the perforated cap toe, the monk strap and the chelsea boot are on last #240. I have a C&J Chalfont for BB which is on last # 317. A recent brogue shoe in bone color is on C&J last # 360.

poshak, what color polish would you use on the shoes on the left in your pic....?

post #569 of 12801

Not my pic. It was posted by gyasih. The color on those shoes is chestnut. I have been using Saphir cognac on my C&J chestnut color shoes and once in a while using Saphir Havane.

Thanks...I own a pair of the Skye boots and want to maintain that antique look to them...the mahogany looks a good match but will follow your lead with the cognac...
