Cheers

There is no guarantee but I have several pairs in 109 and 337 lasts respectively. I take the same size in both lasts.

I need a black working horse oxford shoe for everyday, but cannot tell based on the photo which of these two has the more rounded toe area?

Not in a position to compare them in person. Both are priced almost the same, CJ at 365 GBP, Church's at 385 GBP ..
 

Thanks!


Unfortunately I don't know the answer. However if I were you I might check out this thread and if you can't find it I would post the same question there as well.

Dose anyone have any experience with this Last which of the C&J lasts would it be closest to ??  

 

The closest would be the 326 last I believe.

Thanks for reply but I do not see the 326 on their list of lasts maybe the 325?

oops, I'm sorry I meant 236 not 326.

pediwear has the connaught on 236

do note however that widths can vary - the peals are usually on a narrower width afaik, but you can get the 236 versions in wider widths as well

Unfortunately no help on sizing advice, but I do have a colleague with Church Consuls - he has had loads of quality issues in roughly two years if ownership (upper cracking, three resoles, faulty stitching). Now, everyone's mileage varies, but he and I had very similar routines during this period (we both lived and worked in central DC) and I still have the BG C&Js that I bought at the same time.

@jssdcThanks for the input. Looks like there's no love on SF for a reason after Prada took over the Church's. I also heard some horror stories with one of their shoes lately. Maybe a Connaught would be a safer bet.

One more thing. I really like the look of the 240 last Whitehall oxford shoe Ben Silver have. Does anyone know how come only this retailer have them in-stock, whilst they are not offered at all in any other CJ store in Europe, nor on their web page?

AFAIK, the Whitehall has always been made on the 330 last.
post #8547 of 12795

Yes. Sorry. My bad. 330 last. Anyway, how come only Ban Silver stock them?

They are really nice. Whitehall used to be part of the handgrade collection a while ago but C&J discontinued it. However retailers can order any model from C&J extensive database of model I guess.

Thanks!

I have both, the Consul definitely have more rounded toe (more bulky). Connaught look much sleeker.

 

Generally, I prefer C&J to Church's but I have to admit that among all the Oxford I have ever had, the Consul are the most comfortable and for some reason I do think that they are of better quality (even compare to EG Chelsea)

@NewStart Thank you. Do you have a pre-prada era version? Any chance you might snap a quick photo next to each other?
