Anyone know of a EU or UK retailer that stocks the whiskey shell Harlechs. Thanks!

interesting. I’ll keep my eyes open.
I’m still waiting for the Rosa Klebb limited edition.
Yes, there was a critic who said that she redefined the term "sensible footwear".

its 850 pounds and comes with shoe trees etc.Anyone can advise the fit of the 348 last against EG202,888 and John Lobb 8000?
I’d say, based on my experience, that the 348 is more like the EG 82 last. The 202 has a more rounded toe.
I can’t speak to JL.

Considering the Harlech and already own the C&J for BB shell jumper boots on 240 last. Is there much of a difference in fit between the 240 last used in the BB model versus the 341 used in the Harlech?
Thanks for any feedback!

I much prefer 341, sold anything that’s on 240, for whatever reason it’s just not as a good last for me. Also I think 341 is dressy but country casual at the same time while I just don’t find 240 that attractive

I own the CJ for BB boots you are referring to, which are on last 240 and also I am in posession of the Harlech on 341.

My CJ for BB are 9D US while the Harlechs are 8UK. The former ones feel slightly roomier on the front than the Harlechs but I wouldn't be able to go a half size down, I can wear boot socks on the 240 on 9D, however I cannot do the same on 341 8UK due to my pinkies getting really cramped with thicker socks on this last.

I like the shape of both lasts, and I personally don't see significant differences on the aesthetics. In fact, my wife has asked me why do I need two pairs of the exact same boot on a dark color. :crazy:

In my experience 240 is shorter than other C&J lasts. I own crocketts on 337, 348, 341, 240 lasts plus one handgrade pair For New and Lingwood for which I have no idea about the last used. All but 240 fit quite similarly, true to size. 240 is noticeably shorter. Not like half size but a few milimeters for sure.
