The guys that work at Sherman Bro's are a bunch of elitist jerks. Anyone else have this experience?
I wouldn't say jerks, they are really nice at Haverford. But I am a little miffed by me telling them my foot didn't feel right in a certain size, yet they told me to live with it. I probably will push a lot harder to get what I want next time with them.
On a lighter note... My navy suede ptb's from LS will arrive next week!
Have a pair of these, great shoe! I emailed Bryan at LS today asking for the snuff suede pair also EDIT: Just after writing this received email from Bryan telling me that the snuff suede are on the way from Hawaii.
Just got in my pre-order snuff suede w/navy suede saddle shoes on the Plaza last from J. Gilbert. Can't wait to put them on. . . will have pics tomorrow. The look is fantastic!
Those are great looking shoes, I'm jealous!

FWIW, I am a UK8 on the C&J 337 and 348 last and the same on Carmina's Inca last. Any suggestions or recommendation?
YMMV, I haven't owned any of these lasts but I've tried on both the 337 and the Inca. Those are all relatively wide fitting lasts, and UK8 is generally 8.5 to 9 US, so I think you should do well with Barrie 8D or 8.5D. On a narrower more true to size last like Plaza you probably want to try a 9D, maybe even a 9E.
