    Glad they finally, finally, offered a Connaught in Dark Brown. That Chestnut was a disaster.

    What about the benchgrade shoes which priced at around 400 pounds?(for example Lowndes)
    do they get marked down to 180 as well?

    130-180 is the range, typically for all they've got. Not been for a month or so but that's about it

    I rather thought that may have been the case with stripping off the polish.
    You are actually the reason I got my Westbournes and I didn't know you were the one in the same for both pairs, goes to prove I love your work [​IMG]
    If I was going to settle for getting a dark to light fade on the toe cap would you still advise stripping them?

    Thanks, your a brave man. I've used Saphir Teinture but on watch straps but not on shoes yet. I would be interested to see how they look after wearing. As mentioned, mine are creasing a bit, but expected. I will post some photos in a week or so as I've only worn then for three days. Very comfortable apart from a hard part on the shoe where the toes bends. They fit well and I expect that will go as they break in. I want to keep something of the burgundy so will persevere with cream and polish.

    That's an amazing job you have done. Cheers

    Some can be over £200 but as Cleav says they are generally up to £180.

    Think my Camberley's were about £200.

    Hi folks, first post! Anyway, I have two pairs of C&Js so far - a pair of Islays (last 365) in a 9 (on the advice of the London store in which I bought them) and a pair of Highbury's (last 348) in a 9.5. Both fit well, although the Islays are still a little new and tight.

    What I am wondering is where I might fit on the Grasmere (last 325). I have a chance of a pair of well-maintained size 9s (broken in nicely), and I am wondering if they might be closer in fit to the Islays or the Highbury's. I can't easily try a pair on first, due to location. If I buy them, and they're too tight, I daresay I might be able to sell them on again, but I'd rather avoid the hassle.

    Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

    The factory shop is only open on Friday and Saturday. I'm passing through tomorrow and would love to stop by. What a pain!

    Hmm.. I'm a 7,5UK in the elongated C&J-lasts like the 348 and I had to go up half a size for my Coniston's on the 325 last. The 325 last is not elongated so it's possible you should size up half a size. But if I understand you correctly you would size down half a size? Make sure the Grasmere's are good in lenght then.

    Whiskey shells look great. I was actually just looking at the exact pair in the
    Ben Silver catalog, amazing they are available, but not cheap!

    Hi there
    For people who own both the 363(lonsdale etc)and 348 last(lowndes, edgware etc) , do you take the same size for both? (Standard width)
    Is 348 narrower than 363?

    All comments welcome.
    Thanks

    Hi

    If the 348-last fits you, then take the same size in the 363-last. The 363-last is elongated like the 348-last so lenghtwise probably the same. In my experience, the 348-last is narrower then the 363-last. So if 363-last fits you, you should probably want to try on a 348-lasted shoe first.

    I have a pair of Westbournes in the 348-last in UK7,5 and it's too snug for me. I also have a Millbank Chukka in the 363-last (UK7,5). The Millbank also fits snug but not too snug, and definitely less snug then the 348. Mind that the Westbourne is an Oxford with a toe cap, whille the millbank is a derby style shoe without toe cap. These things also have an impact on fit. So, as always, you should be careful with comparing lasts. Not only the last will be decisive for the fit.
