C&J makes most shoes in an ENGLISH E which is a US C. Some models are an F (US D) or G (US E) or both widths. They also have a couple of models in a UK D and B (US B and AA)
And btw, all of these UK companies that began making shoes in Northhampton formerly used numbers for the fittings before they changed to letters so they are all aware that a fitting 6 is an F (US D) With everyone using F for their medium fitting, C&J is not going to use E and be the odd man out for no reason or cause confusion. So I wouldn't pay any attention to people on here who keep claiming (wrongly) that a C&J E is a medium.
I think you may want to revisist that statement ......you may find that certain English manufacturers use "E" as the medium and others "F" which all equate to the US "D" medium apart from Trickers who use the number "5"
Others may want to correct me but AFAIK
"E" Lobb EG Crockett
"F" Church Cheaney Grenson Barker
C&J "E" is the equivalent of US "D"/smallish E width. Them's the facts. The Loake/Church equivalent is "F". Them's the facts. I have both brands in that size FWIW.
The howard yount double monks in suede are also very nice
Triple Monk Conundrum
^ A great shoe...for the ostentatious dresser.
Those are past my level of sprezz. And I like some pretty loud shoes.
These are currently my favorite pair of dub munks:
G & G, Vintage Cherry and Chestnut pingrain on the TG73 last.
Coloring up nicely already. Although I completely understand they won't be to everyone's taste.
Vass in Saddle Shell Cordovan on the U last. Unfortunately up for sale at this point.
I think the Vass double monk could very well be my favorite. Too bad they aren't 40.5 - 41s I would've considered pickin them up
These look like hammerhead sharks
One of my grails...
They do look great. But if you had to choose between Yount, Paul Stuart, or C&J for Double monk suede, which would it be?
Allow me to complicate things for you a bit.
