    From what I have seen they are not made to handgrade standards. I think all handgrade shoes have closed channeled soles. None of the ones I have seen or own, have this.

    I went half size down with my Drummonds and think that the fit could be better. If I went a full size down I think it might be too tight for me width wise. I never tried on down a full size and out one width though.

    In principle, the 348 last is available in E, F, and G (extrawide). I've tried the Hallam in a G width a few years ago in C&J's shop in 69 Jermyn Street. However, this was a special MTO for the shop if I remember correctly.

    For the G width, you either have to call the shop and be lucky. I was told, they could deliver to Germany. Don't know about the US. Or you have to organize a group buy, because C&J doesn't do single MTOs I believe.

    The F width is more common, but it only appears in the collection every now and then. For instance, the Monkton is available in F right now. The Tetbury once used to be, too, but that doesn't seem to be the case right now. Better call or e-mail C&J to be sure.

    They will do individual MTO's, but you have to pay many pesos.

    Excuse my ignorance but where do you buy C&J's? The C&J website says there are no stockists in LA, and people here don't seem to mention websites (unlike the Carmina thread where websites are plentiful).

    You can also call C&J stores and order over the phone. The NY store is helpful. Obviously you should know your sizing if you go that route.

    Plenty of UK stores, but if you want to limit it to US for easier shipping and returns, in addition to Barneys, Ben Silver does as well: http://www.bensilver.com/Crockett-and-Jones-English-Shoes.html

    and Sky Valet too: http://www.skyvalet1.com/Crockett-Jones_c_17.html
