Is that true?  Why would C&J discontinue such an elegant last

Yes, a C&J rep told me about a year ago that they were gradually phasing out the 317. I had asked about getting my hands on a Canterbury. They said the only way was through MTO

The rep said that they were shifting to 341 for its "sleekness."

In this day and age, a round toe probably sells less

Huh. I remember when the 337 WAS the sleek last.

I don't really see the 341 as any sleeker--narrower all around, perhaps, but not sleeker. Looks like much less shaping.

I have the Radstock in the 341 and it's definitely sleeker

What is my best bet in RTW options?

I have seen some CJs in F and G width. AS has plenty of lasts in F width. EG, GG seems to make some F width RTW shoes. I understand JL makes EE width RTW.

I'm trying to find a good black captoe oxford (probably a brown one as well), might go with the AS Armfield, should fit the best without doing MTO (if measurements online are correct).

As others have mentioned Alfred Sargent F width is their standard. A Fine Pair of Shoes did a group MTO and I picked up a pair of Blakes in a 6.5G on the 43 last. They fit nice and snug. I'm looking forward to doing another group MTO if that ever materializes. Alternatively, because I don't know when that might happen I'm beginning to look at Bespoke-England's selection of G&G RTWs in their F-wide fitting. I've been talking to Nick and it looks like if you want a shoe he normally stocks, but in a wider size you can request it without having to create an MTO. Seems like a good option but I'm just weary as I don't know about sizes.

Thank you for the advice. Nick is great, I'm sure you both can work out some gentlmen's agreement regarding sizing.

But aren't AS G fitting and C&J/GG F fitting equivalent to only a US E? Those still really won't help us guys with wide feet. I don't really consider an E width as wide, since most manufacturers actually make shoes in these widths.

C&J seems to make some G width shoes which should be EE.

^Even on the Copley last I'm not sure that "D" counts as a wide width.
What's the width on the Peals?

Copley is a suprisingly wide last in the toebox. It's designed to be wide in the toebox and tapered in the heel. That's where I need it most. Plus, the glove soft leather on these has some give
