A couple of questions,

 

What size in a Barneys C&J boot should I order if I wear 9 in an Islay & Conniston?

 

Also what products do you all recommend for cleaning/polishing the two? (the Conniston is a cognac-ish color)

Been debating getting the Whiskey Harvard for a few weeks now. In pics at least I love the color of C&J's whiskey, sort of a mix of Alden's whiskey and ravello. I am wondering how the 314 last fits compared to the 325? I have fat, flat feet and from what I have read, the 314 is somewhat generous in width but at the expense of a loose heel.

For anyone that has that model, can you comment on the fit compared to the 325 last or Alden's barrie? Barrie fits me about perfect, the 325 is almost as good but not quite.

Also would love to see any pics of the Whiskey harvards with some wear on them... I don't mind some shell rolls for sure but just curious how they age.

I need some advice. I have been breaking in my Islay, wearing about every other day for the past 4 weeks and I'm undecided on the fit for me.

The boots were snug across the width initially and and have stretched out comfortably but I am concerned that my heels lift and rub to point of causing small blisters as I I flex my foot. I must add that it has improved as the sole has become more flexible.

For reference, my large toenail ends at the 5th and 6th hole punches of broguing (1inch) from the end, if that makes sense and the imprint of my heel on inner sole starts about 1cm from the end.

Does it sound like I should have taken a half size smaller? I have worn a larger size and they felt voluminous.

See below for photos, hopefully showing flex point and what I mean by the 5th and 5th ' brogue punches':

Thats a lovely collection! Are those Alden suede wingtips from J Gilbert? I almost got those but decided to preorder the reverse chamois WT  from B+M instead. 

 

I would recommend saphir wax polish in neutral to retain the color or get different shades of brown. They have a few different choices.

I got the 8 US from Barney's for the Islay and it fit me very well. I usually wear 8.5 USA. I ended up returning it to barney because it was quite cheaper from Robert Old. I got it in UK7.5 from them which fit exactly the same way like the barney US8.

Mark June 24 on your calendars. You'll be able to find Crockett & Jones on sale in France at that time.

Various online retailers will ship overseas and deduct VAT as well. Can we get an inventory of retailers here?

Paris is only allowed to have sales twice a year. Winter and summer.

Thanks! You're correct on the suede wingtips, I'm actually thinking about selling them.

Hartland is on the 359 last.

Yes, I have a pair. They are slightly different to the production ones as the sole is a different colour.

 

I have sized down slightly on it compared to my Tetbury's (mainly down to availability, 1/2 size down) and whilst a tight fit they are okay. I don't wear them enough but with the weather improving here in the UK I expect they will be worn more often. A couple of pictures. They look a touch lighter in the pics than they actually are.

Anybody know what kind of discounts there will be? Hoping it will be enough since the CAD is hurting these days...
