    US 9 = UK 8 in C&J/JL. US D width = UK E width.

    I thought it was a .5 difference. I own the Westbourne purchased both from C&J directly and Barneys. My C&Js are size 7.5uk and my Barneys pair is a US 8. The shoes are exactly the same size.

    Interesting as the Barney's SA said they do 1 full size down.

    .5 difference in my experience with C&J for RL and Ben Silver vs UK C&J

    That is true for RL. I also remember that the Peals are .5. I should add that although I got the info from the Barney's SA, I did not get any shoes there. All of my C&J are from across the pond so UK sizing. I guess I could just wear a 348 and asked for a .5 & 1 difference to see which is closest :)

    The Barney's C&Js I have are sized in US sizes which are .5 different from UK sizes.
    Barney's website however lists their C&J by US sizes with a parenthetical full size difference UK translation.
    So the Ghillies I just bought are marked 10.5D US but are actually 10UK and are listed on the website as 10.5D (43.5EU 9.5UK).

    pretty confusing! thanks for the explanation. I wish they'd just list the UK size; it'd be so much easier that way.

    Hey guys - tried on the 325 last today via RL's Marlow Plain Toe Blucher (PTB). It fits me quite nicely as it is a 9D - I originally started this thread to complain about the UK8 Hallam's not fitting me in a 348 last. Knowing my 325 measurements, how can I apply this to other C&J fits?

    Thanks!

    Thanks guys; just re-read this and it seems if I am a 8.5D in the A&E Clifton I should consider sizing down to a 7E (8D) for the 337 last on the Audley? Since I have wide feet I think 7.5E would be better. Was just wondering when you guys say there was a bit of a room sizing down 1 instead of 1.5, how much room extra are we talking about here?

    Heel slip, looseness at the tongue (arc of the shoe)?

    I've been seriously considering these ready for summer.
    Surely they will be very comfortable!

    I think the Drummond on black is excellent. One of two black footwear I want. The other being a black bal boot. :)

    Love the idea of the purple chukka - no idea where I'd wear it!

    Not for the typical customer of Barney's.

    Just got these and the seller said he bought them in Sydney at the famous men's store Richards (RIP) around 1976 and never wore them and stored them away.

    They have a sort of spade sole. I am wondering what year this design dates from?
