    Yeah two cap toes (no brogueing). One black and one in this sweet cigar colour. Beyond my budget sadly at ~£500. Instead I'm going to see Richard the Shoehealer today in Doncaster to see what other goodies I can pick up.

    Lol. I don't know the last off hand as I was only glancing at them in the store. Stock was low on all boots they had ther including stock models like the conniston. They looked a bit different than the BB one I think. A bit heavier set. Sole was leather for sure. This is the flagship jermyn st store not the smaller jermyn st store. The one closer to water stones and Piccadilly.

    Those would be the Harlechs on the 341 last. (This like shooting fish in a barrel as they have a very limited array of cordo).

    How do they fit compare to 358 or 337? 363 look quite round and elongated.

    That's the same as BB Cordo, correct? How do they do the size conversion? Is it Barney style w/ UK Size + 1 = US Size?

    I have been seeking the Harlech for some time; do you know if it still is in production? I was unable to confirm either way from the NYC C&J store.

    They are still in the catalog and there is stock in the UK stores (At least there was a month or so ago). As to whether or not they are still in production I couldn't say.

    I see them in the print catalog but last I checked they were not listed online. The NYC store all but suggested that they would not be able to get ahold of them.

    Tight around the instep (good for thin feted people like me) quite taperd but not too narrow. They're quite long as well. Nice fit in the heel despite my narrow heel. I can't compare to other lasts yet as this was my maiden pair of C&J. Narrower than the 325 I tried on.

    The 341 last is just slightly narrower at the toe end than the 348 in the same size. Other than that I found no fit difference from the 348.

    Great. Another last that I should not try then. The narrow heel is definitely interesting though.
