    Just wanna confirm, does last 238 fit true to size? My only pair of C&J is in last 348 and it fits me TTS and I heard 238 is narrower than 348.

    First pair of CJ arrived!

    These are the 325 last Grasmere with exposed eyelets, whiskey Shell Cordovan GMTO

    Fantastic fit and shade of horsehide. The finishing is noticeably finer than the USA made shoes that I have loved in the past

    Shit those are awesome. Love the exposed eyelets and the shade on those. Makes me even more excited for the Galways. Congrats


    Harvard sizing question**

    Can anyone compare the length differences between the Harvard and Alden LHS? I've been told the Harvard is narrower than the Aldens which isn't surprising in the slightest. Any overhead shots of the shoes side by side would be most helpful!

    Thanks!

    Thank you Gentlemen!

    Maiden voyage. =) Really love the deep glow and the rich shade of whiskey. The fit and finishing is also phenomenal. Overall, very very pleased.

    Me too.
    A good GMTO Idea. The 330 last is amazing.

    It seems to be almost a hybrid of 325 and 341 which would go over well for my feet for sure. I have only ever seen it used for Ben Silver and their exclusive handgrade line. Where are these from?

    I don't know where it is from.
    It is clearly shorter than 325 and 341 and closer to the feet.

    I wear 11E (UK size) in the Harvard, and -- I think -- 10.5E in the Alden. Not 11s, anyway.

    The C&Js are snugger all the way around. When new, they definitely require shoehorns to put them on, but they feel like a wonderfully strong pair of socks that won't come off unintentionally. Aldens are a little easier to slip on and off, and they don't grip the forward end of the foot as tightly.

    Greatly appreciate the info. It sounds like they might work really well for my narrower feet.

    Maiden voyage. These shoes are pretty stellar.

    I am even thinking of doing a LWB MTO in a similar configuration. Whiskey shell/dainite/exposed eyelets.

    Hey guys, need your help on something.

    I recently purchased a pair of Cleverley Chukkas (made by C&J) that have two rows of nails at the toe, like this:

    [​IMG]

    Is it still possible to install sunken toe plates with that design, or do I have to consider another option? I wear out the toes very fast without some sort of protector.

    Help is appreciated!
