    Even though I am a size down, I agree with the other posters on this. That said, I think you should qualify the C&J last. The 337, 358 and 341 do not all fit the same--I cannot speak to the others.

    good looking wt, enjoy wearing,remember the break in method-wear three different times only on carpeting for a minimum of one hour to ascertain if the shoes fit

    I dont recall the lasts but I have the Lowndes, Prestwood, Seansea, Boswell in 9.5 UK and they all fit me OK. Also have the RL suede tassel loafer, Darlton in 10.5 US and they fit me fine. I also have the handgrade loafer (Rosewood ?) in 10.5 US and it also fits me.

    I bought 2 chukkas (chukka & tetbury) in 9.5UK and both didnt fit me

    Lowndes = 348
    Prestwiood = 358
    Swansea = 341
    Boswell = 337


    All one size? You have very forgiving feet!

    Were the chukka's too big or too small and what might have become of them? :embar:

    Mac,

    My Jedi training has begun.............day one was most encouraging, no heal slipping, reasonable flex in the sole, first roll set up well back of the toe cap/medallion. A bit snug on the toes of the right foot. But perfect on the left foot.

    Day two will have to wait until Monday. As I am keeping them at the office until I'm sure that I'm adopting them. That way the old ball and chain doesn't have to see them enter the house if they aren't going to live with us permanently

    Much easier on everyone that way.............:embar:
