I'm encouraged to hear that 341 boots are a good fit relative to Barrie, since a pair of Harlechs in shell is on my wish list. May I ask which 341 boots you have?
Even though I do not own 341, I have to jump in here: the old Barrie, last is a very refined anatomical last. The emphasis is fit and comfort rather than looks. The 341 has a much narrower toe box that is shaped in a very unphysiological way. I would go so far to say it is pathological for most toes.

Barry is much more like 378 or 335 or 365, though 365 is more like true balance last.

I happen to have a shell harlech. Left is unlined and unstructured on barrie.

Before adding anything to the official GMTO file, can I gauge interest in two ideas (I personally love to do both pairs):

Last would have to be a generous one - I'm told the 365 is their most generous. But I also own no C&J, so I don't know what I would propose at this exact moment for this spec. Open to conversation.

Model 1:
Crockett & Jones Radnor
Veldt construction
Black Russian Grain
Matching tone stitching/hardware/edge
Fully Lined
Faux toe cap
No leather pull loop
Ridgeway outsole

Model 2:
Crockett & Jones Radnor
Veldt construction
OG Russian Grain (the reddish brown stuff)
Matching tone stitching/hardware/edge
Fully Lined
Faux toe cap
No leather pull loop
Ridgeway outsole

Basic Style:

Faux Toe Cap:

Another idea would be to substitute the "swooping" side panel for a straight-cut seam:

I am interested in the first makeup with the black Baker's RG and am happy with either the straight or swoop side.

Have you checked with C&J if they will do veldtschoen on RG? I remember something about EG having some problems with the RG Galway?

I've been chatting with them for about a month and I haven't been told of any issues (after presenting this make-up to them as an MTO idea)

What last is this RL MTO on? It doesn’t look like 325?

First time poster, long time lurker. Leading up to this purchase I spent a couple of weeks on here trying to find as much info on the leather and build. I thought this might be helpful for someone else in the future.

I love the Harris. The Cleated sole on the 335 last is chunky, yet elegant. The broguing really helps bring it in to a balanced aesthetic. Division Road did a similar make except a different color leather and no broguing. I loved that build too, but the broguing on the Harris gives the build so much versatility.

I've seen the Hurricane Hide compared to CXL, and it is similar, but also it's very different. I own ĥigh quality CXL boots and they have such an oily shine to them. You can tell the HH is made differently and stuffed with a different mixture of oils/waxes. The HH has a slightly matted shine and the pullup isn't nearly as pronounced as a pair of natty Vibergs. CXL does crease but it's more resistant to the grainy creasing you get with calf. HH seems to be right in the middle between the two. I'm not saying it's bad. It's just different which I guess if it wasn't they wouldn't have given the leather a different name.

Anyways, I can tell this is cordovan heavy thread so hope I didn't bore anyone too much.
