1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    UK 8.5 would be ideal if you wear that size in Tricker's 4497S last.

    I'm looking at getting a pair of Islay's too. Any idea how the Alden Barrie last compares to the 365? I'm an US 8D. The C&J website says the Paris stores carry the Islay so I hope I can try them when I'm there at the end of month.

    No idea, I don't do American footwear, sorry!.

    You might do well to call the Paris shop in advance and see if they can get your size(s) in, in advance; even the Crockett's shops are struggling sometimes with the demand for that boot!

    Well, I wear a 9.5D in most US shoes (that's how I measure) and a 9D in the barrie last from Alden, and based on what people are telling me, I am going to go with an 8.5UK in the C&J Islay, therefore, it appears that perhaps a half size down from your Alden barrie sizing...

    I think 8.5 UK should be fine. The 365 last is fairly generous. I wear a size 8D US and went with 7.0 UK and the boot fits well and still has a little room available (good if I want to wear thicker socks).

    A while ago, I found a link (I think in this thread) to a Japanese website that had a bunch photo galleries for Crockett & Jones shoes that showcased each shoe from a wide variety of angles. However, I can't seem to remember what the site was and can't find the link anywhere. Anyway one have any idea what I'm talking about?

    I guess I need to try both the UK 7 and 7.5 when I'm Paris. They currently have one of each but it's still more than a couple of weeks before I leave.

    I think the Islay is a derby pattern and have laces, so you could size down a size. That is to say, 8.5 UK would be fine for you.
