Has anyone been to the C&J factory shop recently? What kind of stock do they have in at the moment?
I'm due my annual visit soon and I fancy a calf loafer or Suede Chukka of some description.

Hey guys I'm looking to sell a brand new pair of Connaught's in 13D, black calf for $275. Just dropped the price in the classified section. They are a size too large for me, unfortunately. Otherwise they'd be a perfect complement to another black oxford I have (Santoni). Actually have another black oxford pair too (Bruno Magli) that is more of a weekly driver than the Santoni. Yes I like oxfords, black and brown.
In any case it's brand new with box if anyone in size 13-14 is looking.

Hey guys, giant C&J sale:
30% off the prices with code SHOES30 .
Leather Tetbury's for only $290!!!
Hayle unlined suede chukka boots for only $241!
Best sale of the season, imo, but sizes limited.
Small sale at Barneys too on a few models.
Speaking of the Barney's sale, I ordered the unlined suede Hartland 2 chukkas for $309 + tax which arrived today.
Interweb searching implied they're on the 359 last however they are in fact on the 377 according to the label on the box.
I had no idea what the 359 last is like so it really didn't matter and Barney's has free return shipping so I spun the roulette wheel that is Barney's C&J sizing and ordered a pair in size 10M US. They were out of 10.5US which is what I usually get with Barney's C&J but I've had luck with a couple pairs marked 10US before (Cavendish, Chelsea 5, suede Tetbury but not the calf ones). I wear 9.5E in UK sized C&J.
Anyway, they arrived and were marked 10E versus D width for every other pair of Barney's C&J I have. They fit me. I doubt they're US E width as they're pretty narrow.
so I guess we can say the new Barneys is US 10M = 9.5E UK?
Picked up the brown Sydney loafer. Free international return shipping if needed, and I paid the extra $20 to get a year of free shipping both ways.
Nice. It's a great deal. I wanted some C&J Cleverleys, but out of my size.
Decided to give the Harewood in "red" a try. This will give me a better idea of how accurate Barney's sizing is.
I've given up making any assumptions on Barney's C&J sizing other than I'm ordering two sizes if available.
Can anyone give me info about shipton wilton loafers?
How is 72 last compared to 325 last? TTS?
What about the instep?
