JL and C&J - full size down
EG - 1/2 size down
post #2882 of 7822
A question of size: If I wear 9.5 D in Alden's Barrie and Trubalance last, what size would be my best bet in the Islay? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

PS: rule of thumb - UK sizes are ½ size less the US size, i.e. a US9 equals an UK8.5 in most cases


Are you serious?? The Ludgate is a 40-year-old model?

 

So the general consensus is that If I wear a US 9D AE Jefferson, a UK 8E should fit me for C&J?

 

Am I right?

It always depends on the last for me. For the 348 I am a full size down from Alden's Hampton last. On the brannock I'm a true 8.5. I wear the same in Alden's Hampton, but 7.5 on the C&J 348. Milage may vary with different lasts.

Thanks to all for the sizing tips!

 

On a side note, which C&J was Bond wearing in Skyfall?

Well, not sure it's 40 years old but it's long discontinued, for sure.

Maybe it's only 10-20 years old?   Where are you buying it from?

There is no rule that you have to size down 1 size when buying british shoes; it might be only ½ size; it all depends on your foot and the last the shoe is constructed on.

I own many of each, shoes and boots.

I am TTS US9.5D.
I am US9D in Alden's Barrie.
I am UK8.5E in all my C&J's.

Thank you very very much. It should be safe to say that I could order a UK 9E for my Islays. Thanks again!

C&J 325 10.5D US
C&J 240 11D US
Alden Barrie 10.5D US

For me.

 

C&J Islay US 11.5

Alden Barrie US 11

 

 

It really does depend on your feet, but I found the C&J Islay a bit narrower and shorter than the Alden Barrie.

Alden Plaza & Aberdeen: 7D
Alden Barrie, TruBalance, & Modified: 6.5D

Crockett & Jones 325, 363, 337, 348, 365, 341: 6E

Although there are variations on how they fit (obviously because of the different lasts), for me, the size has remained consistent (even trying sizes +/- .5).

Good luck!
