    Are the Barney's US sizes and C&J UK sizes a full size different? If so, call Barney's in Chicago; I was there yesterday and bought the Highbury in dark brown and I know that as of 4pm Central they had a pair left in a 10US. I know, however, that they don't have a 9.5 US because I'd asked to try those in addition to the 9 (which ended up fitting).

    In my experience, Barneys US sizing is +1 from C&J UK sizing, but the "D" width is narrower than the standard UK "E" width in the equivalent C&J-branded models (so, e.g. the Finsbury in US 11D is as long as the Finsbury in UK 10E, but narrower)

    I actually thought the standard width was about the same, so UK 9E = Barneys US 10D. I have 2 Barneys C&Js, the Cliffords and the Wicklows and that is what my experience was.

    This is what I was led to believe as well. I called the Crockett & Jones store in New York a while ago to ask and they confirmed with me, but perhaps the C&J rep here can also let us know

    Be that as it may, if the poster I quoted wants to try and find those shoes in his size, a call to Chicago might be worthwhile; worst case scenario he's out $12 for shipping.

    Maybe it's a last-by-last thing or handgrade vs. benchgrade. I have experience with the Finsbury (341 last, could not wear Barneys 11D but have same model in UK 10E) and the Chelsea 5 (335 last, UK 10E is too loose but Barneys 11D fits perfectly).

    Sounds like you also needed to be on the whiskey Harlech MTO due in a few weeks ;-)

    Oh Tifosi. It is going to get so much worse for you, friend. Do not - DO NOT! - start checking the skoaktiebolaget and Epaulet x Carmina threads...

    I just read thru that as my buddy Alex sent me the link. I guess I'll have to live through him on that order. We are the same size so when he is ready to sell them.....haha.

    I really want the Harlech boot in dark brown. On the hunt for them now.

    They are the Skye2 (wingtip) and Harlech (straight tip).

    FedEx just delivered the Conistons that were on sale at Barneys recently. I wasn't sure (and still not 100%) if I was going to keep them because although they are calf, I thought they'd be just too similar to the dark brown shell Harlechs. Well, the dark brown calf is gorgeous, they have no imperfections, and although they fit a bit bigger than the 341 last boots, are very comfortable out of the box. Guess I'll try them on again tomorrow to help me decide. The $400 price is just hard to argue with for a C&J boot.
