    Which model are those? I was looking at the Barney's website and they have the Chelsea 5, which looks a little bulky and the Lingfield, which looks pretty narrow.

    Kt, Chelsea 3 on a 238 last.

    I find the Chelsea 8 too rounded in the toe, Chelsea 5 not available in the UK and I think you're right about em.

    Notwithstanding that it's about what you want. I like a sleek, chisel toe.

    Preparing for warmer weather with a few new models

    Also, I've tried on C&J's Chelsea boots a few times and its one of the models that simply doesn't impress me. I like a long sleek elegant chelsea and I find there design to be a little more "country" styled if that makes sense. Its got a very rounded toe. I think I'd like it more if they made it on the 348 Last.

    Are you talking about this one? Cause then I dont agree.
    I also like the looks of the 348, (although not as much ass the 337), unfortunately the 348 fits me worst of all and all my 348's have the worst creases of all my shoes...
    which I take as proof of the poor fit :)
    Anyways...love your shoes.

    I thought that 348 was a benchgrade only last, its equivalent on handgrade being 358? Anyone here?

    No, I wrote the wrong last by accident.

    Crawford is in fact the 363.

    You can get the 348 in handgrade but it has to be done MTO.

    Hi everyone,
    I'm going to be making my first C&J purchase next week - a pair of the Islay boots.

    I was hoping to glean some sizing wisdom from the forum re: the 365 last, as I am going to be importing them from England and don't want to have to ship them back if I can help it.

    In general I tend to size up as a 9.5D US - I wear a 8.5UK in a Tricker's 4497 and an 8UK in a 4444. In general would probably size at 8.5UK I would guess.

    Is there anything unusual about the 365 last the Islay is built on? Does 8.5UK seem reasonable?

    Thanks in advance

    UK 8.5 would be ideal if you wear that size in Tricker's 4497S last.

    NAMOR, nice to see a man wearing his boots as intended. Love the slacks.

    Thank you sir. I can't think of a better C&J make up for poor weather

    I'm looking at getting a pair of Islay's too. Any idea how the Alden Barrie last compares to the 365? I'm an US 8D. The C&J website says the Paris stores carry the Islay so I hope I can try them when I'm there at the end of month.

    No idea, I don't do American footwear, sorry!.

    You might do well to call the Paris shop in advance and see if they can get your size(s) in, in advance; even the Crockett's shops are struggling sometimes with the demand for that boot!
