Courtenay - Handgrade - 363

 

post #7622 of 7804
How does the 363 differ from the 358 in the instep?
post #7623 of 7804

Hey Guys,

 

I need your advice!

 

As the days slowly tend to get colder I am looking for a nice pair of boots.

 

The 348 Last fits me PERFECT, whereas the 341 and 359 fits me quite good aswell.

 

My Problem: the 348 is a bit too pointy for my taste, and the 341 and 359 don't really offer what I am looking for.

 

Are there any other lasts that might fit me that you could recommend, given the information above?

 

How does the 371 fit?

 

Thanks in advance!

What don't you like about 341 and 359?

It's quite simple: while the Brecon on the 341 probably is the only suitable Boot for the colder weather on that last, the 359 doesn't offer any proper boot at all...

PSA - I've been buying Nano Protector from this guy on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/111358407976
No affiliation with him, but quick shipping and about 2/3 the price of Leffot.

thanks for the heads up

I have a suspicion that the makeup is the same as whats available from all Crockett and Jones retailers but the photos just makes it look different, adding a 'red' tint.

Found these three:

http://www.pediwear.co.uk/crockett/products/5561.php

http://www.pediwear.co.uk/crockett/products/3536.php

I think the Barney's one looks a bit more formal. Also looking at the price, could it be made to handgrade levels?

@Cuebert my entry point into C&J footwear range was via the popular 348 last.  Suggest you check out the 363 last -- another popular last, albeit with a not so pointy almond toe box -- and size down by a half size.

 

EDIT:  check out my recent posts for pictures both C&J 348 and 363 last examples side by side.

The Barney's one is more formal. It's not even debatable. All are nice, though.

You think this is an exclusive makeup for Frans Boone?

It must be, as crockett jones is only making them in ugly Tan grain or a too fashion forward for my taste- navy grain
