    Order the Tetbury in the same size. Tetbury is 348 last and fits well if you're used to the Coniston.
    Order online for better prices than retail. You'll save a minimum of 20%.
    Good luck!

    Thanks guys, so having a wide foot won't be a problem with it? Another thing, does anyone know what the deal with the leather on the Tetbury is? It says antiqued nubuck but it looks like smooth calf. How does it compare in quality to the usual calf offerings?

    I happened to have two pairs of Tetbury in brown calf or what is reffered to as nubuck. The leather is nice, smooth, and soft, however, there are variations n leather batches. One of my two pairs is much softer than the other.
    As far as you concern, you will like the leather. It is high qiuality calf leather.

    I handled a pair of these today in the C&J shop local to me. They were darker than I expected but very nice all the same.

    Spent a good hour going through the leather swatches for MTO ideas, and left there with a lot more potential combinations in my head than before I went in...

    Thanks for the info. So do you maintain it as if it were smooth calf or as if it were suede?

    I don't quite understand what you are saying, but I think you want to know whether you should use wax polish or cream polish for your Tetburys. Cream is probably enough if you don't want a mirror shine, but if you want a shine you should also use wax. You can also state your question in this thread:

    They are called the Stanhope. They are a MTO pair on the 342 last in Chestnut.

    For that price i would have bought G&G Astaire. I´ve tried Astaire pin grain / mole suede at Davidssons in Sweden and they are really cool.

    UPDATE: They are C&J on the 317 Last. I got them on Friday. The "brown" is C&J's Beechnut, which, IMO, is one of C&J's nicest colors. I ordered TTS and the fit is very good (US9.5D). I also have the Drummond in Beechnut (UK8.5E).

    The "dark brown" pebble grain offering with rubber sole from BB (split toe) is C&J on the 325 last.
