    I think so.
    Islay is on the 365 last while the Chiltren is on the 224 last. The 365 last is more generous in the toe however.

    I have the Chalfont in black calf (single monk strap; shortwing blucher). I have some squeaking that doesn't seem to go away (particularly the right shoe). Have been worn probably 6 times. Any suggestions? Anyone have similar problems with C&J monks? Thanks Gents.

    I disagree. CF defaults to (or defaulted to) FedEx. Mainly because it picks up from the shop; I don't think Royal Mail does. Royal Mail also has a 2 kilo weight limit. If you're buying two or more pairs the FedEx shipping is much cheaper since it can be sent together. In my correspondence w/ Alastair I had to request Royal Mail because it wasn't an option on the website. FedEx doesn't deliver where my mailbox was located at the time, but I also knew I'd be less likely to incur hefty customs and agent fees. FedEx collects a nice fee for its agent service, so it's inclined to present everything to the customs agent.

    Browsing the shoe scene (as usual). Checked out a pair of C&J Connaught in London.

    Quite low cut, so didn't fit that nicely around my ankle, plus the leather's quite soft and supple. Didn't feel very substantial. Prefer a 'tougher' leather, say the stuff that Church's used on the old 100 last.

    About to buy some C&J Hallams. A question regarding fit:
    On an oxford, should the two sides of the shoe (where the lace holes are) come together to cover the entire tongue? Or is a bit of a V common?

    If they come together and feel loose I think the width of the shoe may be too wide, but if they make a large V gap than it is too narrow. This will also depend on how high of an instep you have. People with high insteps will have a hard time getting the two to come together. I don't mind a little V gap on mine.

    Didn't know C&J was or had been offering a string loafer, what's the name of it?

    Not sure about that particular one, but C&J's has another by the name of Hayling and they sell the leather version of it at Brooks Brothers. The last may be different from the one that you posted though.

    It's actually posted earlier in this thread.
