    Such a nice and gentle roll as it meets the top button. Very nice coat.

    Take the gamble. Conistons on the 325 (only last C&J uses for them, I think) fit 1/2 a size big. I bought two pairs of the Brooks tan-brown pebble grain ones (not Black Fleece) three or four years ago in 9.5 D and had to sell them.

    Completely agree with this based on personal experience. I am 10.5D TTS, and wear a 10D in the 325 last perfectly.

    Are they possibly on the 240 last? I have a pair of the Brooks Brothers tan scotch grain boots that I bought on the forum (remember that chorse123 megathread?). I still have them over 4 years later and they've served me well. The 240 is also a generous wide-fitting last.

    Yeah I've got a pair of those same boots that are on B&S and I think they're on the 240.
    I just compared them to a pair of Conistons and they look slightly different. The fit is very similar though.

    I've got two NWT mainline Zegna blazers on B&S in the mid $300's OBO and haven't even had an offer. One is a 42R, other is a 44R. I guess 80% off retail isn't enough to get any bites :/

    I think its the light color of the jackets, not the price, that's the problem.
