No, they came back with the tan laces, the dark waxed laces were the original ones when new 8 years ago. Interesting to know the tan ones are the standard now, I suppose they are less dressy and more country.

Hi
Does anyone know of a stockists of the Coniston in other leather colours than the dark brown or tan offered on the website?
Not suede or black.
Or will I have to go MTO?

Kind regards

What polish do you use, Braid? They look great, with a nice deep glow :)

Here's a photo showing the soles of my recently acquired special order pairs. There's the Commando sole instead of Dainite on the Eskdale II boots and the city sole instead of single leather on the Alex. I've only had them a few weeks and already know they are perfect for my intended usage. The autumnal weather in the north of England always delivers! Thank you C&J.

Hi guys.

I have a sizing question. Is 325 last as wide as Alden Barrie in the same length? Say 8.5D Barrie vs 8 UK 325?

I have lots of experience with Alden and Viberg lasts but my only C&J experience is with the 365 last. Can anyone chime in?

I went to the factory when it reopened after the first lockdown and as far as I know the factory remained open

I wear 8D or even 8E in Barrie and I find my C&J 325 7.5E at least as roomy as the Alden D-width, maybe a touch more so.

With the provisos that taking sizing info over the internet is fraught with pitfalls.

I wear a US9E on Barrie, a 9D does not work, too tight. The 325 UK8 is too tight, the UK8.5 325 is a “good” fit just slightly long, the Barrie 9E on the other hand is a perfect fit for my foot, YMMV.

I was hesitating to jump on the bandwagon here since my experience is a bit limited. I don't have any barrie shoes but have tried both a 9.5D and a 9.5E. The 9.5D was too tight while the E was perfect. I have a pair of Pembrokes on the 325 in a UK9E and the fit is very good. I'd say 325 is similar to barrie half size up plus a width.
