    Same last as Tetbury.

    Has the Lingfield been discontinued? Not carrried by alot of retailers.

    And it's not on the C&J website; they only have the 3, 5 and 8 chukkas. Is it one of them, but under a different name?

    Looks like I'm 6 hour slate to find out what size they were. Let me know if they're US9.5 and don't fit :D

    I think I can call myself a C&J fan now -- my Chelsea 5's (from Barney's) just arrived today -- I got the Barneys Islays and Conistons last November.

    The Conistons have been quite a wild ride ;-) When I was first breaking them in, it felt like there was a "pebble" under the insole in my left heel. I emailed C&J NY store -- then mailed the shoes in -- they re-heeled them free of charge (apparently there was a scrap of material under/in in the insole?)

    Here they are after a recent round of Saphir Renovateur:

    Question -- I noticed some 'chipping' or 'flaking' or whatever you want it to call it, right on the toe of one of my Conistons:
    [​IMG]


    I have put about 10 miles on these boots (a lot of it in winter slush, snow and salt). I do wipe them with a damp cloth and then brush them off when they get dirty though (plus clean and polish them every two weeks so), and I use shoe trees.

    Is this normal wear and tear on a country boot like this? Can anyone suggest how to repair or improve this area of the leather? I rubbed a few rounds of Saphir Renovateur on (& off), but that's the extent of what I know to do...

    As an aside, I do like purchasing C&J from Barneys -- quick shipping, US sizing, etc. Though I do feel that the pebble grain leather on the Islays is better for a country boot than the smooth calf that Barneys uses for their Coniston. Now I wish my Conistons had the normal pebble grain rather than the smooth calf, oh well....

    They were UK 11 - US 12

    It was an exclusive for Barney's. Found this out after a little research. It is on the 358 last. Similar to the 348 (the last the Tetbury is on).

    Don't have regrets. This gives you the opportunity to justify buying another pair of Conistons, this time in the pebble grain leather!

    Thanks for the info. How does the 358 compare to the 348?

    The tetbury is a great fit on me (low instep).

    I don't know yet, as I don't own any 358 but will let you know when I receive the boots.

    Shape is very similar to 348 so I think fit will be very similar.

    I also like the Tetbury very much :) I have 3 pair and am waiting on an MTO to arrive.

    Good stuff. I ordered the Lingfield too, so we'll see. But yeah, it has a very similar look to the tetbury.

    Edit: this thread below mentions that the 358 is the same as the 348, but is a handgrade last. But the Lingfield doesn't look like a handgrade boot.

    I guess that they made it a Barney's exclusive product by putting a bench grade shoe on a handgrade last.

    Lingfield might just be 348 then as it doesn't appear to be handgrade.

    Better pics to follow but this is the Purdey 'Pickering' boot I mentioned at the weekend. Not sure now what last this is on because it's roomier than I expected.

    The calf is a lot more golden in real life and I think it is the beige country calf that I've seen in swatch books.

    Definitely prefer the higher leg on this to the Coniston.
