    I have the Linderick boot by C&J on the 325 in an 8UK which is what I wear in most other UK shoes. I'm also always a 9D in US shoes. Not sure if that helps but that's my experience.

    The burgundy shell model from BB. Not formally called the Coniston, but the design was essentially the same, and, as I understand it, was on the same last as the Coniston.

    Whether I went tts or half size down, the boot was just too roomy at the instep and led to an an overall sloppy fit.

    This boot was on last 240 and is no longer in production. That is to say the BB Burgundy Shell Cordovan boot. Coniston is 325

    Very well. I owned both boots - Coniston in tan scotch grain and the BB captoe boot in burgundy shell. Neither boot fit well. I eventually off loaded each pair.

    Where do you find these unicorns? I passed on C&J adelaides as I thought they only came in chestnut (and black)?

    Got those little beauties, alongside the Monkton above, from the Factory Shop :nodding:

    Don't ask the next question, it will only make you cry :stirpot:

    It's interesting how, sometimes, you can actually find prettier shoes in Factory shop than their London stores ..

    What color saphir product do you all recommend for tan country grain? Light brown, neutral, or something else?

    I've used the neutral, though it removes a bit of the darker brown within the grain. I should experiment with C&J's technique of finishing with a dark brown and wiping it off the surface, but I'm worried that there might be a skill to that which I don't possess.

    I found the 325 (Pembroke) considerably wider than the 348 (Tetbury), But my Pembrokes aren't the kind of shoes i'd wear with thin socks anyway. Wearing thicker socks definitely compensates for the extra width.

    How blue is the navy color from c&j, especially on the coniston?

    There were some photos a few pages ago but it seems it was not under natural light.
