Hello everyone!
I have been here quite long time but this is my first post.
My question is I’m thinking to buy an Oxford in black color between C&J CONNAUGHT, RADSTOCK or Carmina forest 732 or sineu. I prefer something classic cause i already have Carmina rain last. C&J is more expensive but i have a good deal if i go with rubber sole. What do you guys think????
It’s so difficult cause there are no stores in my country and i can’t try it on. And my size is 7,5 uk in Carmina do you think i still fit 7 uk in C&J? My toes are short and i still have room around the cap when i wear the Carmina rain last.
Any advice is helpful, thanks a lot!!!!

I wear the same size in C&J and Carmina.

I find the C&J 236 last (Connaught) and C&J 341 last (Radstock) looser through the heel and instep than the Carmina Forrest Last (732) - the latter is more sculpted.

I also find the C&J 236 last and especially the C&J 341 last a little too long to my eye. C&J describes the 236 a shorter last, but it really isn't.

I recently replaced my Connaughts with the 732s.

Yes i saw on the forum that the 341 is longer last and slimmer than 236
