1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    That's why I wear Brecons this bloody rainy day.

    BTW Love your collection! You have both Tetbury and Brecon, interesting that I've tried Tetbury, Chiltern and Millbank, and felt uncomfortable in the heel, whilst Brecon/Chepstow don't have this problem.

    It is my favoraite C&J last. Fits my foot well in Boots. I am not sure about shoes, probably have to go one size larger to accomadate my high instep.

    Thank you. Like I said before, they are very different boots, but they both have their own function. I wear the Tetbury more formally, with suits on the road.

    Thank you. Northcote leather is as close to cordovan as you can get without buying cordovan. It is very hard to shine, though. However, it is very dressy and elegant boot. My favarite of the lot.

    Someone could help me in C&J sizing?
    Unfortunately the only C&J that I owned and tried was the marlow penny in size 9D (314 last) that fitted in this way :embar: (the foot could't enter more):

    [​IMG]

    I am a Uk 8.5 in many brands and was a surprise to find that 314 last was so narrow and short.
    (And as far as I understand US 9D is exactly a Uk 8.5E in Boston Loafer)
    Now I would like to order the Shipton & Heneage Wilton (72 last offered in Ex and G width) and I would avoid to return the shoes one or two times.

    I wear Size 8.5 F in various Sanders Mcnairy, 8.5 F in Loake 026, 8G in Church's 173 and others.

    C&J lasts are so narrow? Would I order UK 9G in Wilton?
    Thanks in advance

    FWIW, I have at least 4 different C&J lasts in E width, and I wouldn't characterize any of them as narrow. But it's all in what they are being compared to ....

    Definitely made a mistake with thinking 10uk would fit me on the Tetbury's.
    Have worn them 3 days now and as much as I may like to think they fit like a glove...they are that wee bit tight around the toes.
    Have put them in trees thinking they may stretch a little..but no.

    A wee bit tight in the toes may take more than a few wearings to resolve. But should resolve eventually.

    Wear thick socks with them for brief periods of time. And/or put thick socks on the trees before inserting them.

    Personally I'll take tight in the toes over a little loose any day. It may take a couple of dozen wearings or so, but if they stretch out acceptably they will crease far less in the long run if they are snug.

    Spray them with shoe streaching liquid and wear them immediatly for as long as you could stand them. All day if possible. That way, they will streach on you foot.

    i did that with my boots and it wasnt helpful. just take them to a cobbler and have them stretched just a bit and itll make the world of difference. unfortunately no pain no gain in this situation. wear them a few hours every night after work when your feet are the most swollen and thatll help out tremendously as it always helps me when i do it. best of luck though.
