    Maybe I'm missing something but if you already have a pair of UK8E on the 341 last already, why are you looking at another pair in UK7.5E? Is the UK8E too big?

    Huh... I had a pair of exford in sude, and am looking for a pair of derby in cordovan?

    The one I had was actually a bit narrow to me, but the thing I don't understand is the sellers' derby in same last is actually wider, even though it marked half size smaller.

    Understood. Personally, I never go by shoe measurements. If the 8E is narrow then I can't see how sizing down to a 7.5E on the same last will fit better. Just my opinion.

    Totally make sense.

    I didn't know what last my oxford is in when I was looking at that derby. Later on I realized my oxford is in the same last and bigger size, but with a narrower width, that confuses me.

    Should be the 240 Last, US11 D (=UK 10 E in the regular 325 Last Coniston).

    Alden Aberdeen (12D) vs C&J 341 Last (11E).

    LANARK III in black Cavalry calf, from the Black Editions collection; last 378, lots of room in the toe box.
    Not very fond of the corrected grain Cavalry Calf but I said to myself, why not? Had another pair of boots in corrected grain that I bought back in 1992; held up very well, no cracking or peeling.
    In my opinion the Lanark III looks great with the Vibram sole and makes a great everyday shoe. I would also expect C&J's cavalry calf to be of excellent quality and hold up well to wear and tear.

    I never realised that cavalry calf was Crockett’s term for bookbinder. I’m not a fan of the stuff as I don’t care for the look. I liked the Shannon from Church’s, but it is usually made in ‘polished binder’ as they call it. However, I found a pair in calf and rubber sole and had to have them. :)

    Where I live they make great fall shoes with all the rain and eventual slush; besides, they look great, not plastic-y at all.
    The Churches, like these?
    Rock Your Socks- show your sock, shoe & pant combos
    Grafton, not Shannon in calf + rubber.
    I find the Vibram sole more comfortable though

    Just in from SkyValet. C&J Teak Oiled Conistons. These things feel like they were made for my feet.
