C&J lasts - Page 2

post #16 of 216
Personally, I am at home in the 236 (Connaught) and the 341 (Finsbury) and will never tire of the Tetbury (348) long after perhaps "resting" the 348 in general.

But the 360 last I think is the one that catches the eye at the moment. Predominantly to be found in the Far East

MAIDWELL (360)

YARDLEY (360)

MILNER (360)

I really like that last. The Bramwell and the Yardley in particular are nice designs.

Tried this shoe on at T&A today. Lovely "blind broguing" (I think that's what it's called -- there are only 2 layers of leather, the broguing is punched into the top layer, as opposed to having a 3rd layer). It's on the 358 last, which, as far as I can tell, is basically a handgrade version of the 348 -- much longer and narrower than the 337.

I felt the same way -- didn't do it for me. But the antique tan French calf is really spectacular.

I like the Dartmouth as well and has it on my list as one of the next pairs to get (for now, I'm awaiting arrival of the Bradford).

For those of you with the Connaught (or another model on the 236 last), how do you feel about it?

I have the Connaught in Chestnut. It's a perfectly serviceable, classic round-toe last. The Connaught is a good, relatively cheap (at PLAL) prices competitor to say the Park Avenue. The Whitehall (330) is a better shoe, but it's now only available direct or from Ben Silver, both of which are $$$.

I'm thinking of getting the Dartmouth in G, wish they had more choices for 318 in G though.

The 337 seems to be the most elegant, although I find it a little too sleek.
The 348 is a too elongated and stylish - but okay for now and the next few years.
One day these chisel toes will be grandpaish and timeless rounder lasts will become popular again.
Actually, I like the 325 and 341 best.

Here a pic of the Belgrave Polo Brown Suede (337) and the Hallam (348)- both 9.5 E:


And some of the others, from left to right:
Hallam (348), Savile 9.5 E (337), Avebury 9 F (337), Chepstow 9.5 E (325)

You have a great collection there. Love the Aveburys.
post #24 of 216
That is quite the collection. Most impressive. Would you say the 337 or 348 would be better for a narrower foot?
post #25 of 216
The Averbury is great.

Such a nice boot.

For C&J to have such a crapload of narrow lasts blows dead moose.
Otherwise I really dig their shoes whenever they happen to fit

Really? Thank you. It's so difficult to tell from the photos. By the way, those boots are beautiful.

That is what C&J reps have told me and many others.
