    I had taken my name off the list but I've added it back in. We need only 1 more now.

    Regarding the Whiaky Cheviot, two more are required. I am regretfully dropping out of the GMTO after recently visiting a C&J stockist and trying on the 325 last (Pembroke). I cannot find a suitable fit in the standard E width on this last. I'm sorry if this is a setback to the group order. This is a great shoe, and I am envious of you guys who can fit a pair in their standard offering.

    Can anyone give some quick sizing advice for the 325 last? I seem to always have issues with width but really want to join the cheviot GMTO. I'm a brannock 10.5E; here are some sizes:

    Alden Barrie: 9.5D, would need 9.5E in anything other than unlined suede
    Alden Plaza: 10E
    Carmina Rain: 9.5UK works okay with thin socks
    Tricker's W2298: 9.5UK
    Truman: 10.5EE (their wide last)

    I haven't tried the Cheviots specifically, but 325 is a tad wider than 335. You could certainly wear both in the same size-- I am an 11E in both-- but if you're on the narrower end of that spectrum, or prefer tighter shoes, 325 may not be your favorite choice. Too bad, because I prefer its toe shape to 335.

    That being said, there might be some adjustment you can do on 325 (such as wearing mid-weight socks or putting in an insole) that will solve the problem. Your cobbler might have some insight.

    The 325 last is a little narrower than the 335, but my advice is to take the same size on the 325 as the 335. This is based on my experience trying on these shoes and is also the advice given to me by Ms. Searle at C&J.

    Do any of you gentlemen know how the 325 compares to a Brannock? I'm a 7D and have no way of trying on any C&J's.

    My best-fitting shoes are probably my 6.5D Alden long wingtips (Barrie last).

    I'm not familiar with the 325 last but gonna try and find some time this weekend to pop into a store and see how they fit, as I'm just on the edge of whether or not to join the GMTO. Will report back if/when I get a chance.

    Marlow PTDerbies yesterday. Unfortunately, unexpected rain left lots of water spots after this, so will need some TLC.
