325 last fits well, 341 fits pretty well albeit a tiny bit narrow in the toes. 240 last is too narrow, anyone else go up a half on this last? Beautiful last but find it tight up front and may order a half longer. Any input is very welcomed my brotheren

I feel like all those last could fit better on me. I take UK7.5E or UK8E on 325, UK 8E on 341, and US 8.5D on 240 last, I was swimming in US 9D in 240.

Cross post from the C&J gmto thread.

Would anyone be interested in a Galway 2 gmto? This would be the discontinued model in brown scotch grain.

Never worn C&J until I recently picked up the Pembroke. Is it normal to be experiencing heel blisters while breaking them in? The fit feels spot on and there is no heel slip, but my heels feels like they're being gripped and pulled when I walk. Rather uncomfortable, to say the least.

Anyone with a similar experience?

I experienced the same with the Sidney loafers. I got them quite tight and it killed my heels for the first wears. I completed the break-in wearing thick socks and after that they were very comfortable.

I wouldn't be worried at all.

Doesn't include Alden and Nike but does seem to include Crockett & Jones and Red Wing.

Takes Conistons down to $507 + tax.

I'd rather have that then the heel slipping I am getting with some of my shoes. Have not really experienced it with any of my C&Js.

IIRC, there may be sizing issues at Todd Snyder. Not sure if this has every been resolved. Thanks for the heads up though.

Oh yeah, I definitely had issues with UK sizing at Todd Snyder. Like when I ordered what was listed as UK9.5/US10.5 I got a UK10 a couple years ago. It was intentional as the box had UK9.5/US10.5 stickers over the UK10. No idea if they still do that.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
