    @BaldwinP thanks for the cautionary tale. I will make sure that I mentally prepare for possible disappointment, of having to return my first order of 341 last footwear back to C&J in the UK for sizing down. Also, I will ensure that I request 341 in-socks too.

    I went with the 11UK, which is the same size I wear in Carmina's Forest, Rain and Inca lasts. The main fit issue is that I have a wide foot with a low instep and the 365 last has more volume than I'm used to.

    Just to point out that you also have a long foot. Much longer than my UK7.5, I was looking for a steal :smarmy:

    They do look excellent though. Certainly on my list, along with a few others. Congratulations.

    Thanks, Cleav. I'm inclined to keep them anyways.

    Hi

    Could anyone confirm if these Ralph Lauren boots were made by Crockett & Jones and would anyone know the name of this model? They're made of rough out leather if that'ts not explicit with the photos. Many thanks in advance!!

    Nice boots. Did you go with the same size as you have in other C&J models?

    @Tamyom, they're Alfred Sargent to my eyes on their old 88 last. No idea of model.

    @Giannis, be safe and go for a 10.5, I'd say.

    Thank you

    Crockett also advised me on 10.5, I m just hesitating as I have some heel slip in the trickers (maybe narrow heel and wide foot)

    Yes and no. My only prior C&J purchases/try ons involved the 240 last from Brooks Brothers and Marlows from Ralph Lauren. Both were too tight for me in my TTS 12D. Based on this, I went with the 11UK here and suspect I could have gone down another half size. I put an insole in today and that seems to have solved the issue. To the extent it helps, I'm an 11UK in Carmina's Forest, Rain and Inca lasts and these are noticeably bigger.

    I just took delivery of my Harlech and Brecon boots. I was a little concerned about fit as I've never tried on the 341 last before and these shipped to US from C&J store in London. I stuck with the same size as my Coniston boots on the 325. These fit just fine. Thanks @BootSpell for the good advice. I'm happy with how both pairs look.

    I'm now interested in the Cardigan 4 on the 335. Alden Barrie last is a touch too big sizing down 1/2 from my normal US size. Does anyone have any advise on how to size the 335. Is it more volume than the Barrie? UK10.5E on the 325 fits good - I have room in the toe box - but it's not too big, like the Barrie is. Should I stay with 10.5E or size down?
