    Feels roomier in length and toe box. Vamp girth feels about the same.

    as I found out today it's not just the last - I have half a dozen pairs of CJ in various lasts including 358/348 in 8.5 UK, but bought the Brunswick and Aldwych today, both of which are on the 358. The Aldwych I got at 8.5 but was tempted to go to 9, the Brunswick I got at 8 as it is a derby.

    Lesson is that there is no substitute for trying things on

    yes, testing is the often a must.. especially since boots vs loafers or oxfords vs derbys can mess things up sometimes

    however oxford vs oxford would be sufficiently consistent

    did C&J recently raise their prices? I was looking on Bodileys and prices seem to be about 25gbp higher than when I ordered over the summer

    Bodileys may have raised their prices, but the C&J direct prices have not changed. FYI, Bodileys are more expensive than ordering from C&J directly (eg £468 vs £425 for the Weymouth).

    There is a detailed post on prices and a full price list back a few pages on this thread.

    thanks - I need to work on my technique for some WAYWRN shots rather than just inanimate objects of desire though

    balmoral cap toes are great, can't figure out why they are not more common?

    Connaught, Hallam, Whitehall, Audley, maybe others.

    Wait, just realised you maybe meant balmorals with that specific stitching?

    well they are not balmoral cap toes in the sens we mean. They are oxford cap toes but not balmorals since they do not have the horizontal seam along the ankle
