    A question of size: If I wear 9.5 D in Alden's Barrie and Trubalance last, what size would be my best bet in the Islay? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Are you serious?? The Ludgate is a 40-year-old model?

    So the general consensus is that If I wear a US 9D AE Jefferson, a UK 8E should fit me for C&J?

    Am I right?

    It always depends on the last for me. For the 348 I am a full size down from Alden's Hampton last. On the brannock I'm a true 8.5. I wear the same in Alden's Hampton, but 7.5 on the C&J 348. Milage may vary with different lasts.

    Thanks to all for the sizing tips!

    On a side note, which C&J was Bond wearing in Skyfall?

    Well, not sure it's 40 years old but it's long discontinued, for sure.
    Maybe it's only 10-20 years old? Where are you buying it from?

    There is no rule that you have to size down 1 size when buying british shoes; it might be only ½ size; it all depends on your foot and the last the shoe is constructed on.

    I own many of each, shoes and boots.

    I am TTS US9.5D.
    I am US9D in Alden's Barrie.
    I am UK8.5E in all my C&J's.

    Thank you very very much. It should be safe to say that I could order a UK 9E for my Islays. Thanks again!

    For me.

    C&J Islay US 11.5
    Alden Barrie US 11


    It really does depend on your feet, but I found the C&J Islay a bit narrower and shorter than the Alden Barrie.

    Alden Plaza & Aberdeen: 7D
    Alden Barrie, TruBalance, & Modified: 6.5D

    Crockett & Jones 325, 363, 337, 348, 365, 341: 6E

    Although there are variations on how they fit (obviously because of the different lasts), for me, the size has remained consistent (even trying sizes +/- .5).

    Good luck!

    Big thanks to everyone that posted up comparison sizes:)
    Based on what I've read, I think I will be going with with UK 9E for the Islay then. I'm really excited about my first Crockett & Jones purchase. I would have loved to make it into a retailer that carried C&J and really make sure I got the perfect size, but living in Alaska make that impossible. I was actually wearing the wring size Alden Indy for a year before making it to Leather Soul in Hawaii on my honeymoon.
    Thanks for the help!
