With the Finsbury did you size up or down from the 348 at all? The 348 fits me like a glove so Im tempted to order the 341 in the same size...thanks

I took the same size in the 341 as I did in the 348. Although I must admit the 341 was so snug at first that I didn't think it was going to work out. The issue being the width at the toes. So I would say the 341 is just a smidge narrower than the 348 at the toes.

341 is a little shorter in the toebox

I have black suede Mertons but would not wear them with shorts. My brown suede Cavendish are fine though.

They talked to C&J and said there was a 5 week wait which I'm fine with. Of course they won't arrive for some time, but they deduct the VAT and have free shipping so it's a heck of a lot cheaper than the NYC store. I ordered them with the shoe trees for about $500. They carry the Hallam so you could always give a call and see if it's in stock or if not, what the timeframe is.

I spoke with Laura on the phone and she was very helpful and pleasant to deal with.

Do you know if ordering from Robert Old to the US with standard shipping (what do they use?) results in customs fees?

Gotta say that I really like that.

Agreed, particularly the color and level of polish/care.
