    C&J "Chalfont" (pg. 10 of the new catalog)
    Wish I owned them, but I need to find a deal and try them on as I'm unsure of Euro sizing.
    I'm open to tips on purchasing C&J.

    Go down 1/2 size from your US size (I wear US 12D and would buy UK size 11.5E from C&J), unless the shoe is a Handgrade on the 337 last. In the latter case, I go down 1 full size, to UK 11E. This is only an educated guess, as I own only C&J shoes in US sizes, purchased from RL (I have the Alton, a C&J Handgrade on the 337 last, in US size 11.5D and the Darlton wingtip, a C&J Pembroke Benchmade on the 325 last, in US size 12D).
