    I lived in NYC for a few years - before I knew what good shoes were though.

    Go Giants!

    C&J @ Royal Arcade also told me that I am in UK 9.5E (I am 10D US), but in reality I am UK 9E. Same thing w/ G&G guys, Tony sized me a 9.5G when in reality 9.5F fits great if not a bit loose.

    It's simple; better for them to size you (online lol) a bit bigger to minimize the number of returns and complaints. As long as you can wear them, you won't complain!

    Barney's mark C&J 1 size up AFAIK.

    Again, C&J and JL = full size down, EG and G&G = half size down. And for disclosure, I've worn 358/337 and tried 348/341.

    I have to agree - size down a full size from US to C&J's UK sizes. Unless you run on the wider side, in which case you might get away with only a 1/2 size down.

    I was sized in the Royal Arcade store as well - I ended up 1.5 sizes down from my US size. I'm so happy with the fit that I ordered 4 more pairs on the same last after returning to the US. No regrets at all here, for my foot the sizing is spot on.

    toes = no problem for me.

    The C&J 348 in 6.5 are just as wide as G&G in a 7 as far as I can tell. Certainly no shortage of length either.

    I'm not trying to beat a dead horse but that is not true of the two pairs of C&J for Barneys that I have owned - both the Connaught (236 last) in 12D and the Keswick boot (325 last) in 12D are the equivalent of UK 11.5E.

    One thing is certain. When a CJ shoe is born it is a certain size (let's call it an X). If it is for sale in the USA, then it is called an X+1. Always.

    What size in a particular last will fit you is a very different question.

    But if you try on a 12 in NY, the identical shoe will be an 11 in London.

    Why are the RL shoes made by C&J labelled as half a size difference between the UK and US sizing?

    FWIW, I also size down 1.5 sizes on the 337. I wear a 9.5D in most shoes (Alden Hampton is probably by best fit). I'm a 9D in AE #5 and Barrie. 8E in the 337 is a great fit, not a trace of tightness. I bought an 8E in Carmina's Adelaide that is wearable, but tight, probably would be better with an 8.5.

    I know that you are wrong. Send an e-mail to Mr. Huqstable, manager of C&J's customer services. He'll set you straight.

    Hmmm. it was Huq who told me this when he was managing the Royal Exch store.

    Not that I'm concerned, being in London I'm fortunate in that don't need to guess what fits, I can try it on.

    While I really really like the Aldywch, after wearing it twice I have concluded it is too small for me (UK 8.5 but feels like an UK 8 / US 9) so I am reluctantly going to sell it once I work out how to do so on B&S.

    PM me if interested.
