    Work has gone pretty casual nowadays. No more suits or even ties.

    I got rid of a lot of my Allen Edmonds balmorals. And one of my favorite shoes is this Bradley shell. Would anyone have reservations wearing this with a light blue or grey suit to a Non evening event like a day wedding.

    Got them all cleaned up today [​IMG][/IMG]

    Thoughts on C&J belts as far as quality/value? Was thinking about a dark brown grain belt from them. 90 GBP (but I think it would be <$100 USD with no VAT). Would presumably match my Pembrokes and Galway 2s perfectly.

    Do the Tetbury chukjas in leather not suede work with chinos or jeans? Or only wool slacks as they're very sleek.

    Dear C&J experts,

    This is yet another sizing help request from someone new to shoes. I apologize in advance, but really appreciate your help.

    There is an opportunity to purchase shell cordovan plain toe derby (Grasmere, 325 Last). In most circumstance, US 7.5 E is my most comfortable size. Thus ideally, I could choose UK 6.5 F or G, which I think will fit nicely. But unfortunately, I'm restricted to UK E width, the standard width for C&J, which I understand to be just a tad wider than US D width (please correct me if I am wrong).

    So, I must pick my poison and choose between UK 6.5 E or UK 7 E; or equivalently choosing between US 7.5 D or US 8D. To help with this decision, I went to a local Allen Edmonds which had derbies in US 7.5D 7.5E and 8D. Specifically, these were the Cliftons in calfskin, in their 108 (or simply #8) last. From my brief research, this last is true to size in the forefoot, but it's rather wide/roomy in the heel. (but I am no expert! please correct me if I'm wrong!)

    As expected 7.5E was the ideal fit. 8D had slippage in the heel, and 7.5D was tight in width but no slippage. The tightness of 7.5D is tighter than snug, which was bearable but uncomfortable to walk in without first breaking breaking in.

    Given all this, would you recommend UK 7E or UK 6.5E for the C&J Cordovan Grasmere (325 Last)?

    Thanks so much!

    Just make sure you are wearing slim jeans/chinos.

    Gentlemen,

    I was wondering if anyone could give me their experience with Brooks Brothers Peal 240 last used in their cordovan boots and wing tips vs the 325 last. Do you take the same size in both lasts? Thanks.

    One last is much tighter than the other. The 240 is good for a low instep, while the 325 is for a higher instep.

    Basically, my feet were swimming in the 325 last (by comparison, the 348 last in C&J is perfect for me).

    I take UK 9.5 in 325 last and size 10 on BB cordovan wingtip. They both fit me equally well..
