Full disclosure: I recently helped Sky Valet set up their new web site. There are a few C&J models that aren't shown yet on the site (e.g., Cottesmore, Coniston)  because I haven't gotten around to adding them. If anyone's interested in a model not shown, please let me know.

How about the a Radstock oxford?

I just checked with the owner -- it's not in stock but could be ordered, price would be $550.

If I'm a 10.5E in 325 last (Coniston), what do you think I!d be in the 341 last for radstock?

I just spoke with Hetom, the owner of Sky Valet, and he guessed (with emphasis on "guess") you might be a 10G for the 341 last. He said that the 341 is much narrower and sleeker than the 325. Also, also the 341 doesn't come in E, only C and G (with G being the equivalent of a U.S. EE). Hope this helps.

I'm the same size in both 325 and 341. This is primarily because I'm a 13D (UK12E) and I can't get 1/2 sizes. I find them very comfortable however.

Weird.  And confirmed.  I tried on Lowndes at Barneys Chicago in 10.5 EU (I did not look inside the sole) and they fit well.  I just received them from Robert Old UK and they 10.5EU is too large.

 

 I'll have to exchange them.  Oh, for a few days I'll offer a Lowndes in 10.5 EU (really 11.5 US) at about $570USD (shipped from Canada if Canadians want them duty and tax free).  Other than that, I'll have to pay shipping for the return.

Thank you both!

They are veldtschoen welt with waxed hide...I don't use anything...just brush and polish them from time to time.

Are you sure what you tried on at Barney's was actually a 10.5UK?
Every pair of C&J I have from Barney's is marked in US sizes with no indication of UK size inside the shoe or on the box.

I was in Barney's Chicago store.  I asked for the 10.5 EU, then perhaps, I was given a 10.5 US.  Funny, I would never fit that small.  Gawd, what if I really tried on a 10.5 US, that would be quite small.  On Barney's website, they note both US and UK sizes.  I should have double checked!  

 

I am 11.5US in an Allen Edmonds 5 last. Anyone have guidance on the Lowndes?  10 Uk?  Many thanks, ..

I have been successful in sizing down 1 full size for C&J lasts.

These will be my first purchase when I eventually return to a place with autumn.
