I own a 325 last and also a 236 last ( connaught model as the one you'd like to buy now.

If you have a normal shape of feet, I can say the connaught are roomier than a 325 lasted model.

Keep ind mind you also have to consider the shoes construction:

For example, the 325 last model I own is a pair of pembroke, which has a double sole, goodyear welt and dainite outsole. It's in grain calf and the most important thing, is a full brogued derby.

While for the connaught: it's an oxford cap toe model in calf, single leather sole.

The ball foot of the connaught is roomier than the 325 of the pembroke, but as I said before keep in mind the pembroke has a heavier construction, so there is less space for the foot inside.
Even the instep of the connaught is ok for me in comparison with other oxford models: as you know people with a high instep might have some problems with oxford shoes, but I say one more time, if you have a normal foot, you should not have any problems with the connaught
In my case I had to size up for the pembroke of 1 size even because I couldn't think to break them down wearing them, cause a brogued shoes it's very hard to loose, while a plain calf shoe will easily loose.
Just to add another detail: I also have the pembroke in 317 last that means G fittiing and in this case I wear the same size of the connaught.

I don't know how confy the 325 conistion were for you since the beginning, so, hope you can use my experience to have a more clear idea on the sizes.


Could I ask how the Pembroke compares on the different lasts please?

It depends a bit on your foot, but generally speaking forget to wear the same size for the pembroke in 325 last and the pembroke in 317

the 325 is E fitting, while the 317 is G fitting.
In my case I had to size up 1 full size from the 317 G.

The 325 E is very tight, at least for me, and being a brogued model does not help to feel them comfier with the time passing; so my advice is, if you feel this model tight since the beginning, just leave it and go for a bigger size: half size or 1 size up as happened to me.
