    Right click + save picture as = Finsbury.

    I like your new white shoes, MoK. At that price, if they give good wear for only a couple of years, they're good value. They also give scope for re-colouring, as you're considering (shades of blue, not red! Lilac?!). I sold a few pairs of white Lobbs a while back, and some buyers asked me to ship them directly for re-colouring.

    Wow, thanks guys. [​IMG]

    RJE is right - it's the Finsbury.

    I'm really quite surprised at how the 341 last looks on my foot. I usually worry about shoes looking ungainly or like boats on my feet, but these are quite elegant. A (very) happy medium between the 325 and the 360. Now if only I didn't go through the 337, 348, 360, 350, 325 and 235 before getting to this last! [​IMG]

    I'll probably be springing for the Ashdown next when the SO releases her death-grip on my wallet. [​IMG]

    How does it compare to the 337, apropos? Width, instep...

    Narrower width, instep seems about same to me, perhaps a teensy shade lower.

    Thanks. No 341 for me, alas.

    Ah, that's a shame!

    If it helps, they come in wide fittings as well on certan models.

    The 341 last is nice (I have the Bradford, Worcester and Westfield on that last). From my memory of trying it on, the 337 is slightly more elongated than than the 341 - is that right?

    Apropos, the dark brown(?) Finsbury looks great in that shot, with more colour depth than I think is usual for C&J. Is that true to life or maybe due to some colour banding from high ISO? (The EXIF data is missing from the pic).

    It would be nice to see them with more light, maybe outside, when you get a chance.

    I think the instep is an even bigger problem than the width... Thanks anyway!

    Having compared them in a store, the 337 is slightly more elongated yes, it looked a bit more beefier. I didn't try the 337 on as I couldn't afford any handgrade anyway at that time so I can't comment on fit.
