    Barney's bizarre world C&J US sizing strikes again.

    I ordered the 348 dub munk chukkas and 325 roughout suede chukkas both in 10.
    I also ordered the 325 chukkas in 10.5; they didn't have the 348 chukkas in 10.5.

    The 348 chukkas fit. They're a big snug but good with a thin sock.
    The 325s fit tighter than some 325 last Cavendish loafers I've got.
    So now I'm waiting on the 10.5 chukkas to arrive tomorrow.

    I should mention I've got other Barney's 348 last shoes in 10 and 10.5 and several boots on the 325 in 10.5 that fit.
    I thought I'd roll the dice on the roughtout suede in 10 since the Cavendish fit so well in 10.
    At least return shipping is free.

    Thanks! The unworn hoard is starting to match the pairs I actually wear :hide:



    Were the chukkas these? http://www.barneys.com/crockett-jones-chepstow-chukka-boots-504067539.html

    Does box say teak oil or something like that? Debating the pair but wanted to get some sizing info on them first.

    My green pembroke fits a bit snugger than marlow but probably just not broken in yet. Also dye job is a bit iffy, brown shows quite a bit with shoes in sunlight. Wonder if C&J dyed it themselves

    I bought some C&J Drummond's in 7.5E (usually an 8 UK) as they were the last size left and 40% off.
    The length is fine but are tight around the widest part of my foot, right before the toes.
    I've worn them a couple of times for short periods to try and break them in and whilst they're better, they're still tight.
    Is it likely that the last is wrong for me or they just need a few more wears to stretch?

    I'm a UK 8E in most of my C&Js too, but have Drummonds in UK 8.5E. They are a little long and I probably should have gone with UK 8E, but I feel like they might be too narrow in that size too.

    I'm guessing...he has no idea. his other feedback on ebay indicates he doesn't sell shoes normally

    Yes 240 is BB-exclusive. It's a last that BB acquired when they purchased Peal & Co.'s name & assets.

    They fit like a US9.5D. I have that exact pair.

    It's a pretty snug last.

    I prefer the 325 to the 240.
