    bricks-and-mortar only; happening within a few weeks.

    Limited amount of samples will be coming in from Japan. Purchases are first come, first serve. There won't be a sale on regular stock.

    My understanding is that the most common sizes will be stocked (lots of 7.5UK).

    If anybody needs a proxy for pick up, let me know.

    looking to make my first C&J purchase but have a sizing question.

    went to brooks brothers and tried on some peal and co which were the 341 last. I have a pretty wide foot and an 8E US was still a bit too narrow. if I were to order a UK size, would I need to order a 7G in the 341 or is that equivalent to a US 8E in C&J? are there any other lasts the would be a tad bit wider in an E?

    I believe a C&J G width would be a BB Peal & Co. F width ( or EE width). Some C&J models have H width (EEE WIDTH).

    I too struggled with the Peal Co. Shoes, specifically the perf. Captoe. The US 11E was a little too narrow, so I will have to go with a UK G width.

    The same question arises for me, are C&Js a full size smaller from US to UK, or only half a size smaller? I believe the SA from the NY store mentioned it would be a full size difference, but I would appreciate more input as well.

    From what I have read it depends on the last, so there is no straight answer, i.e., full for some, half for others.
