    I actually wear 11.5 EEE in most AEs and I fit into an 11F Connaught on the 236, a little snug at first but now 6 months in they fit perfectly.

    Hmmm... I may have to do a bit of research into their various lasts. I'd all but given up hope of ever wearing anything sleeker than an AE Park/Fifth Avenue.

    What models are that? Clifford, Belgrave?


    Yes & yes. Belgraves are 1 year old BTW and have been worn heavily... not in bad shape I think

    Cliffords are handmades and beautiful shoes. I have a pair in English Tan.

    Can anyone comment on how 240 last fits (in comparison to 348/358/337). BB has the shell boots made by C&J in 240, but C&J themselves only have boots in 348 (Northcote which I have) and 341 (Shell Cordovan) which I don't have. I can't seem to find anything in C&J store in 240 last, and didn't see the BB in London carry the shell boots either.

    P.s. these are the ones I am talking about

    Fits TTS, smaller than the 348 as it isn't too elongated.

    so burgundy? Even better! This will be my first pair of shell, and no I am not paying 998 either...

    good to know, thanks, I assume quite roomy on the toebox right? What's most comparable last in your opinion?

    I agree burgundy is cool, Clee care to share you secret of how to avoid that $998 price or are you just waiting on a sale?

    I'm bumping this partly as an excuse to show a pair of fantastic-looking well-worn Weymouths..but also to ask what size are these?

    My first post on SF [​IMG]

    I hope that all the sand and rubble soon will be swept away from the streets of Stockholm, these shoes are waiting for some action this spring. From left to right: Clifford, Clifford, Rosemoore and Belgrave.

    [​IMG]

    I also took a picture that shows C&Js unlasted shoe tree (light colour) in comparison to C&Js lasted shoe tree (darker colour). I have to say that the lasted shoe tree (made for the 337 last) fits the shoe perfectly. If it's worth £80, well, strictly economically speaking I would say no, emotionally speaking the answer is absolutely!

    Cheers
