Burford is an F. Bedale is a G. The Pennine last is also quite rounded on the toe. I have two pairs of boots and three pairs of shoes on this last.

JTG have suggested some nice looks, clean as hell. Too bad their micro-slim trousers are, well, micro-slim.

I have the Edward and the Worton, which are both rubber soles ('Victory' and 'Dainite'), and another which is like the Edward but on leather called the Ashby. Mine are in brown, navy and tan respectively. The blue Wortons were a bit of an impulse buy at the factory shop - they took me back to some blue shoes I had as a teenager. However, being darker, they are a bit more subtle and work in many situations when I might otherwise wear black.
Loake do a Chelsea boot on the same last which I may go for, though without the laces to adjust the fit I may find it sloppy.

The Edward and Ashby are Oxfords but the shape of the last lets them work with less formal wear then most Oxfords would. The Badminton, on the other hand, is a Derby but on a more tapered last which I think makes it look a bit more formal. Even though it can be bought in a G, I found the 026 last pinched me too much - less room over the instep.

Tried on a chelsea boot at the Loake shop this morning. A bit long for my stubby feet but otherwise a nice fit even if I had to go up a half size. Trouble is, I would need to hire a valet to remove them at the end of the day.

A few TK Maxx buys from the weekend.
Both jackets are 3 button 2
I think they must ship them up your way, knowing that you will buy them :)
There are six TKs which I can easily get to, and I have yet to see any 3 button jackets. Went to one this morning.

I probably have narrow feet so the Burford is adequate whereas the Loake Chelsea boots l own are a neat fit . I have also 3 pairs of Loake shoes but none of the ones that you mention but l do have a pair of 200b's that are a G fitting which are great for when i have to be in a pair of formal shoes on for a whole day. .
The Burfords often get compliments from others , l even had a guy in a supermarket one day asking me which make my Burfords were.
I found a Loake shop up in the city shortly before the house arrest kicked in but l have not been in it yet , most of my Loake's have came from the shop in Strutton Ground , the guys in there are first rate. .
