    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)

    That is quite the collection. Most impressive. Would you say the 337 or 348 would be better for a narrower foot?

    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 [​IMG]

    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.

    The 348 is a much better fit than the 337.

    Great to know! Thanks as I have narrow foot and don't have any 348 lasted shoes, but might need to start.

    alas only ebay.co.uk that I know of. on the sock it says 'made for Trading Post' which is widely believed on the forums to be a japanese retailer, so google for those fluent in japanese...

    I highly recommend the Wesbourne and the Edgware in the 348.

    I definitely prefer the 348 over 337 since I have small feet (size 7) but I can see how in larger sizes the 348 could appear "clownish".

    Thanks to you and jsherman, I'm glad I know that now. I was just about to order some shoes on the 337 last (just been trying to decide which ones). I may have to reconsider my options and order something on the 348 last instead. I wear a U.S. D, but barely. Did you go down half a size from your U.S. Size in the 348 or a full size down (like people suggest with respect to the 337)? My problem is that I'm between a 7.5 and 8 in U.S. shoes, so makes it somewhat of a gamble with respect to what to order. Thanks again.

    Hats off TKDKid for the link. Credit for the pix I posted goes to you as well, got the boots but no camera.

    I'm US 7.5 and would recommend 348 in UK 7 E. Outsole length is 300mm or 11 13/16 for 348/UK 7E.
