    I'm an 8.5 on the Brannock. I wear an 8.5US on the Alden Hampton last. It's a little roomier width wise than the 7.5UK I wear in the C&J 348 last. Lengthwise, they are about the same functionally, but the 348's chisel toe extends further, so the shoe is longer.

    I wear a 7UK on the Carmina Simpson last and a 6.5UK on the C&J 348. US size usually an 8.

    I can only guess, with armored heel, and a chiselled,tapered waist maybe early to mid 1960's?

    I was hoping to find out by posting the logo styling at the heel pad area.


    Here is a couple more.

    I was lucky enough to get an impromptu tour of a little part of the factory a few weeks ago, and saw how full their order books are. The situation for e-stockists and bricks-and-mortar shops isn't likely to improve soon as they're looking to supply more through their own retail outlets. Even going through their retail shops can involve a wait - I'm on an eight-week waiting list for a Skye boot via my local C&J shop.

    For those who care about these things, here's a little snap of the shop floor of the factory from the other week (taken on a Saturday):

    Was it still the Anatomical Boot Co whilst you were there, or had it already become the C&J shop? Either way, that's my local shop and the service there is second to none...

    I've never seen the Finsbury in chestnut burtnished, but thought they would be more of a red color. Maybe the one you showed is tan.

    This post has a picture of Gdot's tan Drummonds:
