    Thanks for the pics. How are those purdeys marked on the inside and sole? Do they have a Purdey label or are they still marked C&J?

    Fantastic Lindricks, by the way!

    Plain Purdey heel liner. Printed size/model info on inside like C&J rather than hand written as with Ralph Lauren or Brooks Brothers. Dainite branded soles. Barely visible size on sock liner. No C&J branding anywhere.

    That medallion is CJ for sure. Same medallion as is on the BB brown cordo SW on 240.

    No comments to add yet because I haven't had time to do anything more than briefly try them on once. But here's a bunch of pics of my Islays from Purdey (mine landed at my door without any fuss ... awaiting a duties bill in the mail).

    Sorry if they seem a little redundant, but I wanted to help future viewers with a bunch of angles in case they were agonizing over the shape. My first impression is that they successfully slimmed down the "bulbous" toebox notion just enough. It's still very much a country boot and is only "sleek" in comparison to the original.

    I believe just calf with grain; but I'm reading like you like that's too simplistic an answer - did you mean something more specific?

    Sorry for the ambiguity.

    I just thought it may of been Zug or something else.

    I think there are two pairs of CJ lowndes left in my size from the herringbone sale.
    Thoughts on black vs espresso suede?

    I really wanted dark brown as i have about 4 pairs of black loake/allen edmond bal/blu for work and no brown shoes.
    Casually i wear indy boots or sneakers with jeans/chinos and not so sure on brown suede.

    Should i buy another pair of (very nice) black shoes or should i pick up a couple of pairs of brown meermins instead?

    Thanks for posting the pics. Perhaps they are 365 last but D fitting? I can't wait to pick mine up from my US proxy.

    They would not say when I inquired about a pair of rough-out nubuck boots but these were made by C&J Coniston model on 325 last. However Purdey model had 9 eyelets whereas regular Coniston had 8 eyelets.

    Nevertheless, Still incredible boots.

    I really like them.

    Seems like they are ridiculously sturdy.

    Lovely boots, I am going to try on a pair tomorrow. The original Islay boots I had were a bit too wide for me hence I had to sell them.

    Gentlemen,

    I just bought a brand new Harlech in Whiskey Shell Cordovan.

    How does this 341 last generally fit?

    Thanks
