Last 240 Is my least favorite last. I find it to be too narrow and a tad bit short. I steer clear.

I never seen that color before. It looks great? Where did you get it?

@chickenfark Ditto, plus would like to see more pictures! It looks like a less show-ey / more subtle take on "museum calf"

I got them at Sky Valet in DC. I believe they were a custom MTO.

Hi so do most of you guys buy your MTO shoes from the US or directly from the UK? 

 

What is the normal starting price for their MTO? I remember speaking with the NYC store and they told me their MTO was starting at over $1000 for bench grade. That seems crazy to me especially when looking at the RTW prices directly from the UK vs the US!

Any thoughts?

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

 

The Peals are US-sized for both length and width.  For example a Peal 341 in 11D is the equivalent of a C&J 341 in 10E.

Anyone have a good shoe/boot tree recommendation for 341 last, Harlech?

 

Thanks in advanced.

Bexley shoe trees works fine on my Westfields which are on the 341 last.

I'm guessing you don't want to splurge for the C&J trees.  I have a couple of 341 boots and I splurged on the C&J trees (the older version with only one bar) for one of them.  For the other, I use Woodlore Epic (double barrel) trees.  I think they fit better in the 341 than the very popular AE solid trees.

CJ MTO is very expensive compare to other brands so i´m not surprised that they gave you that price.

Hello everyone,

 

I wear C&J Lowndes (348 lasts) in 6.5UK

It feels a bit tight sometimes especially the first few wear

 

What size should I buy for other lasts?

C&J MTO premiums are rather fanciful.  If you can manage the C&J MTO pricepoint I'd suggest Edward Green via Skoaktiebolaget.  Subscribe to the EG and Skoak threads and have a look around.

 

What is it specifically about your needs that has you looking at MTO rather than RTW?
