If you can get the 41 washed achilles on your foot and walk around and consider them to be 'pretty tight, but wearable' (as I was) I would say you would be fine in 41 for regular achilles. If your washed in size 41 are too tight, to the point of wanting to return them, then I would say your best bet moving forward for the vast majority of CP models, including the regular achilles, is a size 42. I would venture to say that normal CPs will feel almost
a half size larger than the washed leather.
edit; weird sizing comparisons/advice above, but hopefully it makes sense to you
