    ok - i'll let you off the hook. I actually like black shoes - but I'll admit they don't photograph all that well most of the time.

    Exactly. They came in looking dry too. Belgraves look amazing with a mirror polish so that's what I attempted to do at 10:30pm. After the second application of shoe cream, I gave up. I'll post a fit pic next week

    you sir, are correct. However the shoes were especially dry so I applied two layers of cream instead of one. I already had the saphir wax out but after the second application of cream, i abandoned the mirror polish. Had to settle for a pedestrian shine

    It can be a tricky thing but that's my understanding - US7.5 on the Barrie is the same as a UK7. I hope that some who has experience in both makes will chime in.

    In my experience the 348 last runs pretty roomy. I would recommend you size down to a 6.5. I presume you would consider your foot to be a normal width?

    It's hard to say for sure. I think in the 348 you could definitely do a UK7 and probably do a UK6.5.

    I am a US 8, I take a UK7 in G&G, Carmina, AS etc. etc. But sized down to a UK6.5 in the 348 as it is a long and roomy last. I believe my experience in this regard is not unique. Many seem to find that C&J runs about 1/2 size larger than most UK made shoes.

    I have a pair of US 8D AE Fifth Ave. (5 last) which fits a bit big and I have these in UK 7 which is a tad tighter than I would like. The 337 last in UK7 fits me better.

    anyway does the lowndes looks good in casual outfits like chinos and denim?

    No, they don't look good, they look awesome.

    caveat emptor- wrong sizing cuts both ways. Gdot is right IMO- the 348 is the roomiest of generally roomy C&J lasts. I bought a boot unseen in the 348 in my reg size. It was like a clown shoe and I had to flip.
    Pity, as it's a decent last.
