    How is the fit of the 335 last? It looks wider than the 325, but I can't tell by how much. Curious if its better to stay true or size down.

    I just stopped by Isetan Men's clearance, had quite a selection of C&J shoes. The Hand Grade line Last 367 Audley III ( in chestnut and dark brown), as well as a brown suede double monk (also in last 367), were on sale for 63,000 yen ($700), if you want to stop by and take a look.

    Use some Saphir Renovateur to get off all the excess wax.

    Gents,
    Just need your advice. I have just purchased crockett & jones sydney snuff suede in UK 7F. My standard size is UK7.5F for c&j. I could get the UK7.5 but they have a bit of heel slip. I thought the suede would also stretch a little bit more than calf.
    Now they are a little bit tight on my left pinky toe. Just a tiny bit(when wearing thin socks). Otherwise the fit is really good. Without socks they are just right. The right shoes fits well with or with-out socks.Have I made the right choice going for 1/2 smaller on them ? Anyone who own this pair could you please comment how much they could stretch after 5-10 wears.
    Also I have just stuffed a little bit of rolled paper inside the shoe where its a bit tight and then inserted the shoe tree. In an attempt to spot stretch.
    Thanks in advance.

    Ludlow is on the 348 I think whereas the Islay is in the 365 (which is more generous). The Ludlow is a dressier version which are good for next week's snow

    I donĀ“t own that shoe but all my suede shoes have stretched quite a bit so i think you made the right thing by sizing down. I want my loafers to be really tight when thay are new.
