    I'm interested in going this route so would appreciate others' feedbacks. Based from what I've seen, looks like the price for the Tetbury would be 275 GBP + shipping.

    Also, which color is more versatile? Black or brown? I want to wear the Tetbury with jeans also

    I just bought two pairs of C&J Tetbury boots from Chistopher Forbes for about $395 (241 GBP) each + shipping. Also bought a Northcote for around $465 (305 GBP). Also, P.Lal has the Tetbury (limited selection) for the same price.

    Brown is more versatile. I have one in Black suede as well, but it is more special and less versatile. I love it.

    Is the stock on Christopher Forbes website reliable? Plal pricing on the Tetbury seems to be on the more expensive side. 1299 MYR + 115 MYR shipping

    you have to generally add 30GBP to Satorial_Splender's price for shipping to the states.. all in all, PLAL is definitely cheaper

    Chirstopher Forbes will get you one in less than a week if they do not have your size. I used them for 12E and received them in less than 10 days. They are reliable. email Alastair Ramsden at alastair.ramsden@googlemail.com; He is a joy to work with and very reliable.

    P.Lal is more expensive, but they have few in stock. If they have your size, it is faster.

    a 9.5US in a pair of westbourne (348 last) bought from Barneys would be the same size at 8.5uk on northcotes (also 348 last), correct? It seems like barneys sizes up by one, but it seems like I save a ton of money buying from christopher forbes instead of direct from the US store and returns are much harder if the size isn't right. I know the westbournes fit well, so I just need to figure out what size they're equivalent to.

    Robert Old is great, I definitely recommend them. I recently inquired about a pair of Westbournes, they said they would reserve me a pair in their next order due for November 1 delivery from C&J. They emailed me a week later and said that stock arrived earlier than anticipated, product was shipped same day and arrived 4 days later, not sure of the carrier offhand but no duties were charged.

    All is correct US sizes are up 1. C&J are correctly sized to correspond to -1 of US size.

    I would disagree. I own two pairs of Westbournes. One purchased from C&J directly sized 7.5UK, and one purchased from barneys size US8. The shoes are exactly the same, and so from my experience, C&J only sizes down 1/2.

    I think sizing is last dependent to a degree. From my own experience with the Westbourne, the UK size is 1/2 down from the US size.

    You have small feet. I have large ones, agree to disagree. I have over 200 pairs.

    Sorry but you are wrong. Crockett & Jones customer service informed me a couple of years ago that shoes marked with a US size are 1/2 size more than if the shoes were marked with a UK size. C&J specifically stated that a UK 11.5E is a US 12D.

    My experience with C&J's puts me in Sartorial's camp on this one.

    I am TTS US9.5D. I have various C&J's on various lasts, some calf and some shell, some tie and some monks, and I wear UK8.5E in them all. And the US-sized C&J's from BB I own are US9.5D.

    The shoes and boots in the factory shop are arranged so that, for example, a boot marked 10 destined for the American market is on the rack with the UK 9.5 models. The half-size down seemed to be right when I tried on a couple of models marked as a US 10 for my UK 9.5 feet...

    My RJ C&Js marked US10D fit my UK9.5 feet and are marked as UK9.5.
