Stylistically...I think they are pretty different shoes (ofc this is said with a grain of salt...because a neophile that knows nothing about shoes won't know the difference).

 

The Hallam is your classic very CBD plain stich captoe oxford. The most versatile business dress shoe you can buy.

 

The Alex is your standard plain wholecut. Still CBD, still very dressy. Some will say that it is even more of a "formal dress shoe" than a plain stitch captoe. (You can even wear this shoe with a tuxedo).

 

 

I don't think you can go wrong with either a brown Hallam or a Black Alex.

 

With your wardrobe...I would buy a Black Alex first...then later on expand the collection into a brown Hallam.

Yes, I am leaning towards the black Alex for now. Or just get both. :lol:

If you can get both then you are set :)

 

And your next two pairs after that can be

 

1.) Black Westbourne

 

2.) Black or Brown Wax Calf Tetbury Boot (great for use in poor weather (rain/snow) because of the waxed calf and because of the dainite sole. Still CBD too...ofc black trumps brown in the world of CBD.

EDITED: Also, the Tetbury is C&J's best selling boot...

 

I have 4 pairs of them...and I love them :inlove:

My wife keeps telling me to get something like that but that is CURRENTLY outside of my comfort zone. LOL

post #6589 of 12825

Well, whats most important is that you buy shoes that fit you well and serve the purposes of your workplace and wardrobe.

 

But I get the feeling you will be purchasing a pair of Tetbury's sooner than you think...especially if your wife wants you to get them hahaha :lol:

 

But in all honesty, they are fantastic boots...that can definitely be worn in a CBD wardrobe...and that are a great go-to when the weather sucks.

SF has changed me a lot. I hated neats (ties) but now I have developed a taste to love 'em. I thought they were just atrocious at first but I just didn't know any better. If wife says it is good, then I most likely will end up getting it. :lol:

Can anyone advice me what last is the most " British " and most formal for C&J Oxford shoes (suit and a tie)?

Would that be 341?  So far, I'm deciding between the Newgate 332, Arden 341, Radstock 341 or Audley 337, but do I miss something?

Please note that I hate even slightly elongated look of the shoe. Thanks.

236 probably has the more traditional toe shape along with Audry. Connaught on the 236 has been sold for 30+ years so its a safe bet its not as avant-garde as other lasts.

Does anyone know what the correct sizing conversion would be for Barneys' C&J shoes on the 341 last?  For example, a Sydney loafer marked 8 US, would it be 7.5 UK or 7 UK?  I've read both...
