    Well, I wear a 9.5D in most US shoes (that's how I measure) and a 9D in the barrie last from Alden, and based on what people are telling me, I am going to go with an 8.5UK in the C&J Islay, therefore, it appears that perhaps a half size down from your Alden barrie sizing...

    My Islay boots took some beating today! [​IMG] But they are back in order with some TLC as soon as I got back home [​IMG]

    I think 8.5 UK should be fine. The 365 last is fairly generous. I wear a size 8D US and went with 7.0 UK and the boot fits well and still has a little room available (good if I want to wear thicker socks).

    A while ago, I found a link (I think in this thread) to a Japanese website that had a bunch photo galleries for Crockett & Jones shoes that showcased each shoe from a wide variety of angles. However, I can't seem to remember what the site was and can't find the link anywhere. Anyway one have any idea what I'm talking about?

    I guess I need to try both the UK 7 and 7.5 when I'm Paris. They currently have one of each but it's still more than a couple of weeks before I leave.

    I think the Islay is a derby pattern and have laces, so you could size down a size. That is to say, 8.5 UK would be fine for you.

    What last is that 348?

    EDIT: I think its 358

    I took a risk and bought them. It's generally my size.
