    What is Church's standard fitting? C&J and G&G use E, but AS for example uses F.....I didn't have the impression that these letter corresponded to an industry standard so much as placed intra-organizational benchmarks.

    Hey guys.

    I really, really like the sleek look of the C&J tetbury. I wear a size 15D... I'm assuming even a 13 in the tetbury last will be way too small, correct?

    Does anyone know if there are similar (chisel?) toe chukkas that can be had in my size?

    Right, and within makers, the lasts can differ too. AS F is way too wide to consider it as standard, it`s really an F and can't be compared to an E.

    Yes. They would be too small for you. You need size UK14. Call the Factory in Northampton and ask them if they can do something for you. I am sure you are not the only big footed guy.

    Pics of some well worn C&J Handgrades. The lighter brown (now well polished!) model goes back 12 years or so I`d say...

    C&J sizing varies largely from the standard UK sizing of many other British makers.

    I wear a 12D US and in the Tetbury I am a 10.5....

    it really depends on your foot....they might actually fit...

    If they don't...you can ask them if they will MTO the Tetbury in that size...you will pay an upcharge...but you will get that exact shoe.

    Probably a total long shot, but I really love my Conistons. Probably my favorite boot. Does anyone know of any other make ups out there in a darker brown. I know Barneys had a make up and BBBF did as well but unfortunately I can't seem to source a pair of them anywhere in a 12uk. Is the Purdey coloring much different from the regular C&J?

    Excellent. Love the highs and lows of the coloring.
