It all depends on the kind of last you like really.
Herring Churchill's look nice and the last is not too rounded but not too pointy.
I have some Herring Chamberlains which I love but they aren't as dark brown as I had hoped...so I just splashed on some C&J Hallams (at great expense to the management....).
In summary I think a good strategy could be to choose a). what kind of brown you want and b). what kind of shape you are looking for.
the churchills look great. what was the sizing like for the chamberlains?
my sizing depends on what type of shoe i'm wearing. boat shoes + casuals i wear a 9.5-10. pointed dress shoes 8/8.5. standard width.
