    Feels roomier in length and toe box. Vamp girth feels about the same.

    as I found out today it's not just the last - I have half a dozen pairs of CJ in various lasts including 358/348 in 8.5 UK, but bought the Brunswick and Aldwych today, both of which are on the 358. The Aldwych I got at 8.5 but was tempted to go to 9, the Brunswick I got at 8 as it is a derby.

    Lesson is that there is no substitute for trying things on

    yes, testing is the often a must.. especially since boots vs loafers or oxfords vs derbys can mess things up sometimes

    however oxford vs oxford would be sufficiently consistent

    did C&J recently raise their prices? I was looking on Bodileys and prices seem to be about 25gbp higher than when I ordered over the summer

    Bodileys may have raised their prices, but the C&J direct prices have not changed. FYI, Bodileys are more expensive than ordering from C&J directly (eg £468 vs £425 for the Weymouth).

    There is a detailed post on prices and a full price list back a few pages on this thread.

    thanks - I need to work on my technique for some WAYWRN shots rather than just inanimate objects of desire though

    That Aldwych is a very nice last indeed.
