    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.

    Super nice. I actually think these looks much nicer. All your shoes are very nice polished and some of them seem brand new? Do you have time to wear them all :D?

    I wear a lot of them. I started working from home few years ago, so I wear less of them since, but I will get to them soon. I just got these a couple of weeks back and I will wear them in colder weather, which is coming very soon.

    What do you wear these boots with? Business only or "smart" casual as well? If you wear them casually, how do you wear them?

    I wear them with everything from jeans to semi-formal dress. They look best with slim cords or nice Cucenelli chinos. You could dress them up with a nice jacket or blazer or down with a nice sweater. They are very vesatile boots.

    These came in today and they appear to be on the 341 last. Can anyone comment on this last compared to other C&J lasts? I really like this last. The boots fit like a glove without being too snug.

    C&J has a last 341 as well. Less dressy than the 348, but a good choice as well.

    The 341 is shorter than the 348 and just a smidge narrower in the toe. It's a basic/classic almond shaped last.

    Wait, there's Peal & Co stuff on the 341 last? Is this boot the only one on that last?

    Isn't the RL Marlow PTB, made by C&J, on the 341 last? That shoe feels a little bit narrower in the toe box to me than a pair of Peal Norwegians made by C&J that are on the 325. Also, the leather on thye Norwegians looks to be exactly the same as that used in these boots. I love the look, and it's one of my favorite pair of shoes.

    But just tried them both on again, and they are really close. Here are pics of the soles of each from the C&J website.

    Thanks for the photos, been debating whether I am 10.5 or 11 or 341, looks like I'm 11 for sure as 325 10.5 is scrunching the toes a bit

    Unfortunately, the 341 Marlows are on a big, wide, double sole. So it's not a true comparison to hold them up against the Norwegians in real life. From these pics, it's really hard to tell the difference.

    Was looking mainly at the cordovan boot by BB (waiting for after Christmas) and I think it's on the 341 so if I could I'd order both but looks like 11 may be better? The 10.5 lindricks I just got feel tighter than Marlow wingtips at the moment as well, and those are already as tight as can be for width
