    I wear the same in both. I know some people recommend sizing down a half with the 325 but this wouldn't work at all with me, even more so if I'm wearing chunky socks.

    I would, however, say that the 335 is a closer fit, and this fits with the Skye not being quite as rustic as Coniston.

    I saw these on the bay today and thought it worth reposting here since I've never seen a pic of this makeup before - an Islay in nubuck.

    fyi: I'm not affiliated with the seller, but I will say that he has a reasonable buy it now price (it's a size UK 8E). Search ebay for islay nubuck and you'll find it.

    Personally (idiot's disclaimer : people's feet are different)

    My TrueBalance / shell LWB Barrie size is US 8D
    shell indy's fit well, a touch snug at first, but minimal stretch and they are now perfect
    Conniston 325 UK 7.5E good comfortable fit.
    Skye 2 (cordovan) 335 UK 7E good comfortable fit
    Skye (non cordovan) 335 UK 7E was a little tight at the bottom of the tongue area,
    would probably have stretched and been ok but iu would have been a little concerned.

    so for me - discounting UK/US sizing just going by number (and for CJ UK E = Alden US D)

    TB shell Indy or Barrie shell LWB - 1/2 = 325
    TB shell Indy or Barrie shell LWB - 1 = 335
    tl;dr

    would advise going half size down from 325 to 335 (especially for shell 335)
