post #241 of 2136
Regarding all the discussion about the 341 vs the 325 or other lasts, or straight vs curved lasts --- remember that generalizations can be dangerous as everyone's feet are different and this can get you in trouble.

Having said that, although I don't own any 341 or 325 lasted boots, I did just try on the Coniston (325) and Harlech (341) in the same size, 7E UK (I'm 8d tts in US). I found the standard dark brown shell Harlechs in 7E to fit me perfectly whereas the 7E Conistons might have been a tad bit wide enough for me to drop a 1/2 size down.

If a 325 lasted boot is snug, I'd be concerned that a 341 lasted boot in the same size might be a problem. But again, that's me. YMMV.

Do you own both of those boots?  And would you say the difference in fit between the two boots enough to say that one boot is slightly more comfortable than the other?  This is very valuable information for me since I own the Lindrick boot and find it very comfortable.  Although, just from the pics, the Harlech appears sleeker than the Gianni.  Does anybody know what last the Gianni is on?  Thanks!

 

I owned both at one point. I returned the Gianni, but now regret it somewhat as they were really nice. Yes most definitely different so that one is more comfortable. They were different enough that the Gianni was comfortable trying it on (did not wear it anywhere) but the Lindrick is uncomfortable trying it on. I got a good deal on the Lindrick, but honestly it is tight and kind of pinches. The same size in Gianni seemed to fit much more comfortably for me - closer feeling to an Alden Indy boot comfort for me. I don't know what last the Gianni is on, but I wish I did. I emailed Crockett and Jones a bit ago (just their main email address) asking what last the Gianni is on, but have not gotten a response yet.

I'm in. Sent my details to Lauren today.

I wear a 9 1/2 E in the Snowdon boot. Will this one fit the same?

Welcome! Yes it's double leather. Not sure people are feeling the toecap idea though, so sorry about that. Feel free to contact Lauren if you're interested in getting in on the action.

Great! Looks like we must have at least 6 ordered by now :-)

Yep, I think it's a GO!

Gentlemen, I'm not sure if my C&J sizing info can be of some assistance but I was told that my US brannock device measured shoe size of 11.5D would be equivalent to a UK 10.5E for the C&J Harlich boot. I got this info right from the C&J store in London. In another reference for those familiar with C&J for RL Marlow wingtip and PTB sizing I wear an 11D in both shoes. I hope this might be of some help.

^ This is where you really need to try it on. I measure 13D on Brannock, 13D in Marlow Wingtip and 12E in 341.

I have some 9D Marlow Penny's in the older lighter cigar with only 4 miles on them. They were purchased as a backup. Truth is... These are built like tanks so back up is redundant .. PM me if interested... Wanted to offer SF'er first before they hit the bay. Will price to MOVE as I am on a MTO that need funding....

I've spoken with Lauren. We have 9 orders in for this MTO. I suggested we keep the ordering open until the end of the day today to allow for any stragglers. I guess she will then start processing orders tomorrow. If you want in and haven't spoken to her yet then you'll need I do it ASAP.

It's handwritten in. Couldn't everyone in the MTO just hand write it in after you agreed to numbering? This doesn't sound like a great reason not to participate. In the end though it's your money and not mine.
