    Still have a few weeks but will try to get some pics.


    Thanks. The Boulevard Raspail store is near my hotel so I'll make sure to pass during one of my walks.

    Anybody who knows how the 224-last (chiltern, chertsey) compares to the 348-last. The 224 is not elongated I guess but what about room in the toe box? Thx beforehand!

    What's the general consensus on last 348 sizing? About to pull the trigger on some Tetburys for my first pair of C&Js (ordering direct, can't try on in person unfortunately). Leaning towards going down a half from my US size instead of a full size based on how narrow the last appears, but wanted to check with you guys first.

    The 348 is tricky.

    In U.S. sizes I wear a 12D.

    I have about 10 pairs of shoes in the 348.

    My Tetbury's are all an 11E.

    However, my oxfords/monks/loafer,etc. in the 348 are all in a 10.5E.

    Interesting. I also have several pairs of shoes on the 348/358 last, comprising oxfords, monks, and boots (don't do derbies or loafers). All are UK8.5 save my first pair of Lowndes in 9. I've often felt that I could go a half size down with the Tetburys, but you have give in the opposite direction.

    Can anyone speak to the differences in sizing/feel of the 325 vs. 335. For point of reference, the Coniston is on the 325 and the Skye 2 is on the 335. Thanks.

    ^^ triple that. I do want to give the Skye/Skye 2 a try at some point and I have no experience with the 335 last. Thanks, Seven!
