    Same size as CJ? Any idea if they run narrower, wider?

    They generally run the same, but have different lasts.

    Is the Selfridges promotion over? The coupon code doesn't seem to work for me?

    Gentlemen!

    Need you to bear with me being a newcomer in the world of shoe technicality. Planning for purchasing a pair of C&J Nortcote and realizing the model is produced in vax calf. Which as I understand is under the umbrella term for corrected grain, and further consider non-preferential?

    In risk of being considered ignorant – hence, look for other models!?

    Thank you in advance.

    Experimenting with a new pair of loafers now. I have purchased a pair of Sydneys on the 341 last.

    They were a last minute bargain on ebay, and as such I didn't have much choice on sizing. They are a 6.5 UK.

    I'm normally a 7UK and I wear a 7 in the 348 last, as well as Cheaney 205, however in both cases although the front width is OK, I do get a little heel slippage.

    My thinking is that the 341 is reputed to have a little more room in the toe box, and I'd get a touch more grip in the heel which will be good for a loafer!

    I'll know by tomorrow, watch this space.
