Welcome to the forum! Congratulations on your collection, all great shoes! I am particularly jealous of the Stroud, as this seems to be a really unique make up.

My first suggestion would be to stop buying shoes for a while, so you can better develop your personal taste and avoid regretting or second guessing your purchase. It would give you time to understand which lasts fit you better (4-5 wear are not enough, give the 341 some more time!), your needs in term of use cases (formal shoes vs casual/boots) and your aesthetic preferences.

Second suggestion: If you are looking for a less pointy version of Edgware I recommend Bodileys Hanover which are mode by Crockett and Jones on the 341 last, with a slightly different (more discrete probably) medallion. It's not burgundy but the color is really great:

I really like those. I was just browsing Bodiley's selection yesterday. Are all their own line made by C&J?

Not all the lines. Mayfair line is made by CJ (if not entirely at least most of the models as you can easily recognize the now discontinued Skye 3, Pembroke on 341 last, Chiltern etc..).

Bodileys London instead I believe is made by Chaney, at least some of the models: I can recognize the Chelsea and the double monk, not sure about the others.

If you want to know about a specific model you can try to call them.

For the Bodiley London line, they usually list the last as BODXXX where XXX is the Cheaney last number. They used to do that with the C&J made ones but seem to have stopped.

Does anyone know the last of these RL bench made on eBay? I’ve been on a not so urgent search for black shoes that I can wear once a year with a suit for formal purposes such as a funeral, etc.

Anyone has experience with 363 last?

My feet has the following profile:
348 (loafer) - UK 8
325 (loafer, Cavendish in fact) - UK 7.5
337 (oxford) - UK 8 (little extra volume across the vamp)
EG 82 - UK 8

348 and 82 are my best fitting last.

Any advice for a chukka in 363 last? Just thinking 7.5 or 8. Thanks guys!

363 is a long and narrow last.

If it helps, I wear UK6.5 in all C&J sizes (358, 367 and 325) including the 363. I have tried but not own the 337 and I was also and without doubt a UK6.5.

I would say you should be UK8 but the fact that you size down half a size in the 325 makes my hesitate. I own a derby in the 325 which is size UK6 and it's too short (in fact, I have it on sale in this forum). But I would also say that the 325 is a wider and shorter last than those 363, 367, 358 and 337.

similar experience. I am UK8 on 348 and 341 but UK8.5 on 325 because of the length. Sorry no experience with 363 yet.
