JL and C&J - full size down
EG - 1/2 size down
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.
Please let there be someone who owns both Aldens and c&J footwear...
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!
C&J 325 10.5D US
C&J 240 11D US
Alden Barrie 10.5D US
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).
boot season: Somerville with uniform calf upper & shaft.
