1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    That's strange. I got the sizing advice from Kevin.

    I think so. Here's the writing inside the lingfield. And it doesn't say 348 on my tetburys either. it also says 8.5 inside the shoe where the half insole ends.

    And sorry for the crappy pic.

    And just to add another layer to this...

    I was measured by Dean Girling for G&G as an 8UK E for G&G. And they fit great.

    But when I bought a pair of G&G for RLPL in 8Uk/8.5US D, I couldn't put get my foot in. They reverted to a UK 'D' width for the US market (I.e. a US 'C' width).

    So I bought a pair of GG for RLPL in UK9/US9.5 instead (which is a full size and a half from my regular G&G size). The 9.5 fits well width wise, and good on the length.

    Now here's the kicker.

    I just compared the length of my C&J Barneys Lingfield in 8.5US D, with the RLPL G&G shoes that are 9UK/9.5US. And the length is essentially the same (and both chiseled lasts).

    Now I'm thinking that the shoes for the American market are indeed more narrow (a UK 'D'), but also slightly shorter length wise.

    I think the most explanation is exactly what the C&J people have told us. I have 9d in C&J for BB and for RL and wear 8.5D Alden Barrie. There is no way those C&J are actually any bigger then 8uk.

    Sorry I mean the reply you got from C&J makes sense:

    The shoes we make for Barneys are made in US sizes. For shoes from our retail stores you typically need to drop one full size from your US size (e.g. US 8.5 = UK 7.5). This is the case for a majority of the lasts we sell in Barneys. If you have any questions concerning a particular model, please let us know and we'll offer you the best guidance possible.

    Hoping the sizing works out.

    If anybody wants dibs on it before I return it, let me know. Will sell it to an SF member at cost.

    Wow, I joined this forum about 5 weeks ago and it's taken me that long to read through 10,000+ posts in this thread. What an education. My interest in nicer shoes started with Church's (Consul) about 10 years ago, but I've been slowly moving to C&J over the last year as my Church's have started to wear out. So far, I've invested in a Selbourne (358 last), Courtenay (363 last), and Hallam (348 with Dainite), and it looks like a Belgrave (337 last) is on the horizon. From what I've read, there's a huge preference for interesting colors on this forum, but I admit that I'm a fiend for classic Black.Thanks to everyone for the great learning opportunity.
