    Thanks for the reply.

    Between posting that message and now, I indeed did contact BS, and was told information consistent with what you have said above (my UK8.5E translates into a BS 9D). NOTE: The boot in question is not in stock (in any sizes) and will not be until at least the end of February. Further, the boot has "pebble" leather only on the toe and heel. The remainder is smooth leather.

    I concur with the above ^. I ordered 9.5 and they felt like UK 9. Returned...

    That's great info, thanks for passing it along. For reference, I called C&J in manhattan before ordering my Islays from Barneys. They indicated that all of barneys shoes are stamped/marked in US sizes as well.

    Morning! I'd have been all over those boots...

    Will be popping by the Birmingham C&J shop later on for a cuppa tea...

    I will do, and you too!

    Actually wore the Skye this week for the first time in a while and just giving them a condition and light polish as it's been a while. Pics to follow later.

    Hey guys, hope you can forgive my poor English which is my 2nd language. Have actually received my 1st pair of C&J (Westbourne) but I find it a bit disappointing, especially when compared with my pair of Meermin which costs 50% less. Really would like to hear what you think - am I being too picky?

    Most of the flaws appear on the soles. Not a big deal for me but I am a bit surprised by the rough seal. The right shoe is a bit off balance (not sure if the pic can show it), it shows more of the welt on the left side than the right side. There is also a small crease on the shoe. Here are some pics.

    Can you send them back? If you're not satisfied you should return them. Those flaws seem unacceptable to me also.
