post #48106 of 57208

Can anyone comment on C&J 348 last fitting? I'm looking to get a pair of Tetbury's and there's conflicting reports of whether to size down half a size, or go down one full size. My foot is quite narrow and long, and I was thinking of only going down half a size, but I'm worried if I don't get this right, my foot will be flopping around.

Toby, how do you find the bottom of your waistcoat thang? What has put me off it in pictures is that it isn't "flat" at the bottom like a conventional cardigan. I've seen the alternatives, but I don't have that kind of coin for thangs..

I just bought a pair of Hallams on the 348 and I was my normal size...

Didn't even think about it tbh, but now that you mention it, I prefer it shaped rather than flat. Little peekaboo of tie-tip and belt buckle adds interest imo.

Their sommelier is great but just keep in mind most of their wine is french so a bottle easily runs 250-300 

Dinner for two with dessert and so on is just a tad over 100, so very good value 

Tick to this.

During the daytime, there is a fantastic cake shop just up Lt Collins from Bistro Vue called Le Petit Gateau.

Same 348 usual size, in fact they are one of the best fitting shoes I've owned.

I usually take a UK9 and I took a UK9 in the 348 last. I wouldn't go down a size or even half a size.

[Of course, if we're talking US size -v- UK size, then yes, you'd typically go down a size as UK9 = US10 in most measurements.]

The 348 is one of the narrower C&J lasts in my experience so I would stick with your usual size. Nowhere close by that you can try a pair on?

The Tetbury seems to be slightly elongated as compared to a normal lace up shoe in the 348, hence why everyone's recommendations on sizing down.

Unfortunately not able to try any on, I'm located in Darwin, NT, and the only shoes available here are RM Williams and thongs/crocs so I'm playing the internet-guess-your-size game. Fairly confident on sizing down half and the boots fitting well, once I place the order and receive, I'll update!

Hi all,

 

I was fortunate to interview Nick Scott; Editor-In-Chief of The Rake, earlier this week and I've just posted up the transcript.

I personally got a lot out of it and it's great to see it's continuing to grow so well.

 

Link is here for anyone who'd like to see what he has to say: http://www.timelessman.com.au/profiles/interview-nick-scott-editor-chief-the-rake-magazine/

 

Andrew.

The MFKs are really pricey though.

Guerlain at DJ offering a good deal on L Instant PH, for $113 and you get a gift pack of ladies skin care valued at $115 for your other half.

If specifically lemon that you are after, I recently tried L Occitane Lemon Verbena and it is pretty good, although it probably wont last too long on skin.

Chanel Pour Monsieur or Dior Eau Sauvage EDT are also workable at a decent price, without letting yourself descend into the addictive madness of niche perfumery.

So I bought a brand new Corby trouser press today off Gumtree today...

Kinda cool that it doubles as a valet for the next day too. I'll wall mount it eventually.

Will come in most handy for cotton trousers I think, it annoys me that they lose their creases so easily.

If anyone else wants one, there is one going for $40 in Sydney at the moment.

Also this caught my eye: http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/surry-hills/antiques/replica-antique-trouser-press-vallet-stand/1043392623
