    With the Finsbury did you size up or down from the 348 at all? The 348 fits me like a glove so Im tempted to order the 341 in the same size...thanks

    I took the same size in the 341 as I did in the 348. Although I must admit the 341 was so snug at first that I didn't think it was going to work out. The issue being the width at the toes. So I would say the 341 is just a smidge narrower than the 348 at the toes.

    I have black suede Mertons but would not wear them with shorts. My brown suede Cavendish are fine though.

    Do you know if ordering from Robert Old to the US with standard shipping (what do they use?) results in customs fees?

    definitely no mertons with shorts, but I am wearing the beechnuts with a pair of dark slim jeans and they go very well

    Agreed, particularly the color and level of polish/care.
