Anyone have C&J Islays?

So, Brooks Brothers, being the tease that they are, included a Peal and Co wingtip boot in their fall catalogue. They even included it in their semi-annual sale catalogue. The only problem is, there were only 75 pairs available for the entire US and they sold out the very first day.

I tried various stores and they all gave me the same story including the flagship store. So, since I knew C&J makes a lot of their Peal shoes, I started looking for the C&J version of it. I beleive the closest shoes to them (or the same shoes) are the Islay boots (great name by the way). They are not showing on the U.K. website, but they do have them on the French web site. I have confirmed that they are available through the usual sources.

Does anyone have these boots? Any feedback? Picures would be great! I have a pair of 337s, but not 348. Should I order the same size or think about .5 size larger due to the 348 last?

Thanks for any help with this!

BTW, Pediwear and Bodilleys both sell Islay (and Northcote) now

Yeah, I buy my C&J from Bodlleys. I know where to get them. I appreciate the Barneys link as it gives me better pictures of it. I would never buy from them though as they are a couple hundred more than the usual sources.

Anyone have any first-had experience or feedback on these?
