    the Finsburys look great.
    IMO the leather on this pair of hand-grade Weymouths is just about the finest I've seen of any brand- it seems thin, but has developed intricate crazing all over, [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG][/URL] [​IMG]beautifully supple, shines like a mirror

    i find all CJ lasts I've tried fit quite big on me, (348, 337, 341 + 325) - and I need to go down half a size from usual, if that helps.

    Hey guys,

    I'm going to order the Audleys in dark brown soon, and I just want to get your opinion on sizing.

    I own a pair of Pembrokes (325 last) in 8E UK, and they fit well. Should I go 8E UK for the 337-lasted Audleys?

    The Pembrokes fit large in my opinion. I would size up a half size.

    Even though I'm a well-fitting 9D in the Allen Edmonds 5-lasted Strand? This is why I've been thinking I should go with the 8E UK, but I'm looking for those with experience with these two lasts.

    here is a picture of my pembrokes after some saphir..[ATTACHMENT=577]cjpem.jpg (1,991k. jpg file)[/ATTACHMENT] i love these boots.

    can anyone recommend boot trees that would fit?

    also - should i care for these the same way as other leather shoes? ..or should they be treated differently as they are scotch grain.. ?

    thanks!

    EDIT: i mean cj coniston, not pembrokes..

    pebble likes the occasional application of a good single malt- drink it yoself and the shoes look even better
