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:
Bodileys Hanover 5 tie lace Oxford punched shoes calf leather Mayfair Collection English made with Northampton Goodyear welted leather soles. Worldwide shipping Call us on 0044 1162598177www.bodileys.com
Rendered in fine calf leather, Bodileys' classic Hanover Oxford features delicate broguing detail on both the toecap and throat line and a stacked black heel for a smart finish.therake.com

i think the 379 is wider at the front and not so elongated. Be careful as a lot of their lasts are quite elongated. I tried the fairford and the westgate and the fairford made me look like sideshow Bob.Hello. I am interested in buying some handgrade after my first pair of C&J. UK9E for Connaught II last 379 fits well on me. Do you think I should mail order the same size for last 337 & 363, or maybe 348 benchgrade? Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks.
This has been a tricky one for me. If I wear business socks, the Islay fits great and true to size. I wear a 9UK in most brands and purchased the Islay in UK9 also.
What other lasts do you own? Alden? I find the Islay fits a little more generous in the forefoot then same size on the 325. FWIW I'm a UK7E on the 325, 335, 365 (Islay) and 224. I take a UK7.5E on the 341 and a US8D on the Alden Barrie.
8.5D Barrie and Trubalance, 9D Plaza. I have the C&JxRL Marlow shortwings in US9D, and the unlined suede Harvards in UK8E.What other lasts do you own? Alden?
