    I don't have Crat's action shots but here are my Somervilles: [​IMG] Actually on the fence about selling these since I plan to pick up some Shannons in dark oak. I'm trying to rationalize that the Shannons are a punch cap and it should be a lighter shade of brown so as to hold on to both boots. :) It doesn't help that I have a pair of cognac shell cordovan/pebble grain bal boots by AS in the same color scheme...

    I say hold on to both for the time being. Depending on the shade of Doak you get, they could be quite close in color to the boots pictured, or they could be considerably lighter.

    Noob here with with a C&J sizing question. I'm looking to order the 348 or 337 last. I tried the 337 on at Ben Silver and a 11.5 US fit perfectly (the sales associate told me they are sized in US sizes for Ben Silver). Would a 10.5 UK be the best bet for me? For reference I generally wear a 12 in AE.

    Opinions vary on how BS's US sizing corresponds to UK sizing. While I have never purchased a C&J pair from BS, I can tell you that the BS SA told me to get US9D (after I told him I am UK8.5E in C&J).

    Wondering if you guys could give me some advice. I am thinking about picking up a pair of Coniston boots (these would be my first C&J's), and just have a few questions:

    How does the grain leather hold up to solid wear and age? I am assuming fairly well, but just curious to hear from owners. I was originally looking at Alden shell cordovan cap to boots, but the coniston really has a great eye, and is luring me away from Alden.

    Where is a good place to buy them? I am located in Canada, but could have something from the US shipped to an American mailbox and forwarded or picked up. Ordering over the border is tricky with customs, as duty is normally 40%. I have no idea what the going rate for these boots is, but saw they often go between $500-625 USD. Also, I am making a trip to Europe in January, so could hold out till then if its better to order them in Europe.

    Lastly, not sure what to get for sizing. My brannock is between 12D and 12E ( 12D+? if that makes sense), and am planning on wearing them with wool socks. I have a pair of Burgundy shell AE dalton's in 12E that fit perfectly. Also, 12D in a pair of wolverine 1k's is a nice fit also (a little roomy). I believe all the conistons are made on the 325 last? I am thinking a 12UK would likely work. I haven't seen this boot offered in wide widths anyway.

    Thanks in advance.

    Try them on first. I have tried Conistons in grain leather and shell and the fit for me was never quite right.

    I just bought a pair of Coniston boots from above for $525. I'm US12D on the Brannock and a UK10.5E in the Coniston is a great fit for me.

    Thanks. I'll try and see if I can try them on first. Any particular reason it didnt work for you?
    Thanks for the tip, and the sizing advice. This is actually where I was thinking I would order from.

    Can someone comment on the 325 last in general? Is it fairly TTS, or does it run a little narrow/wide?

    Are these dark brown? I only see black and chestnut listed on the C&J website.
