    No one said Brecon is sleek. You got it all wrong. What it's sleek, and not just little, is that damn 348 ..

    Yes, I know. My comment was more for the people who had no experience with the 341 last. This being, I have the Sydneys look quite sleek. I guess it's the apron stitching.

    I would say that Brecon in black calf is pretty sleekly and goes well with a flannel suit as an example.

    I guess it's more the wider welt that I have an issue with. In any case, flannel is less formal than worsted, so I can see where you're coming from.

    I haven't seen the ealongs in person but they certainly look nicer in pictures. I have the tetburys and don't like them at all.

    Thoughts gents? Do you think the cardigan 4 is too casual to wear with slacks and a oxford shirt? Thinking navy slacks, grey, or brown like I am wearing in the picture.

    I think it's a great look and works perfectly.

    Agreed. I wear them with my navy slacks. They look great.

    HI, David, Our C&J expert speaks thus:

    "337 is marginally more generous than 341 in width, so the likelihood is that it will be similar or better than the fit of the 341 in the same size"

    I hope that is helpful?

    Mike

    My Skye 2 in Cordovan were bought last year but not worn yet, I opened the box and noticed a dry area in the left boot. It looks completely different to the right boot and I don't think deer bone or Cordovan cream will make a difference (I tried buffing with a cloth but no difference at all) There a couple of creases that seen very dry too. What do any of our C&J or shell officionados think? Am I being over sensitive thinking this is not right?

    Question regarding the 337 Last in E width. Are you guys taking the same size for it, as lets say Carminas Forest/Oscar? Or is anyone sizing down half a size?

    In my experience some VSC will eliminate those dry areas. Neutral Saphir will also work. However, I think I read somewhere that they MAY darken Whiskey Cordovan. There are other products that may also work.

    I used bick4 on a pair of dry shell spots on a pair of Macneils. I hit them 2 times 8 hours apart.

    Very nice!

    I have the following:Bradford Brown Shell, Brecon Black, Audley Black and Fairford Tan. Been eyeing up the Cardigan Shell - how do you wear them?
