    Robert Old is great, I definitely recommend them. I recently inquired about a pair of Westbournes, they said they would reserve me a pair in their next order due for November 1 delivery from C&J. They emailed me a week later and said that stock arrived earlier than anticipated, product was shipped same day and arrived 4 days later, not sure of the carrier offhand but no duties were charged.

    All is correct US sizes are up 1. C&J are correctly sized to correspond to -1 of US size.

    I would disagree. I own two pairs of Westbournes. One purchased from C&J directly sized 7.5UK, and one purchased from barneys size US8. The shoes are exactly the same, and so from my experience, C&J only sizes down 1/2.

    I think sizing is last dependent to a degree. From my own experience with the Westbourne, the UK size is 1/2 down from the US size.

    You have small feet. I have large ones, agree to disagree. I have over 200 pairs.

    Sorry but you are wrong. Crockett & Jones customer service informed me a couple of years ago that shoes marked with a US size are 1/2 size more than if the shoes were marked with a UK size. C&J specifically stated that a UK 11.5E is a US 12D.

    My experience with C&J's puts me in Sartorial's camp on this one.

    I am TTS US9.5D. I have various C&J's on various lasts, some calf and some shell, some tie and some monks, and I wear UK8.5E in them all. And the US-sized C&J's from BB I own are US9.5D.

    The shoes and boots in the factory shop are arranged so that, for example, a boot marked 10 destined for the American market is on the rack with the UK 9.5 models. The half-size down seemed to be right when I tried on a couple of models marked as a US 10 for my UK 9.5 feet...

    My RJ C&Js marked US10D fit my UK9.5 feet and are marked as UK9.5.

    I have such small feet. 7.5UK for my Westbournes.

    I tried the Drummond in navy at Barneys and it fit as an 8.5US the same as my Westbourne. Didn't buy, because the broguing's off color just didn't work for me. Had it been the same blue, I would have been in.

    And to back up this categorisation by C&J, all of my UK sized C&J 8 cordovans have an 8.5 stamped on the insole. I have always taken this to be the US size.

    I do think though C&J are at odds with other Northampton manufacturers, Church's recommend a full size up from the UK size to get the US size.

    with a few notable exceptions (IE: Namor, Sartorial, etc), men with smaller feet have better taste.:teach:
