    Interesting as I’m a pretty good fit in a 7 for 348 last so we can’t be miles apart in size. My only issue with 348 is instep being a little high so I have to tie them up pretty tight. Haven’t braved a pair of 348 oxfords for that very reason.

    My tetburys are actually 7.5 due to stupidity as a younger man!

    As a result I use both insole and a tongue pad. That does make them stupidly comfortable though.

    Next resole, crockett have said they can bring them down to a 7 for me.

    Do you know how much C&J can downsize a shoe during a resole? Or if they can take an E to a D fitting? I made the same mistake with the 348 on my Lingfields- and being Chelseas there's no place for a tongue pad.

    I’ve been watching this forum for a while now and just want to say all the socks and shoes here are just beautiful. Just wish someone was a size 11.5.

    I’m enjoying all the pics. :)

    It can only be done on shoes that done have other pattern, punching, brogueing etc. And about half a size is acceptable.

    Beyond that you’re fundamentally messing with the proportions of the shoe.
