These are C&J, the last is visibly the signature 240 used for Peal, medallion is also used for other C&J -Peal modelsThe double monks are C&J too, 99% based on the Lowndes on the same last500£ for the Cottesmore? 100£ more than Coniston
I've also had the same suspect when I bought the penny in 9D, very very narrow to be UK E.Maybe they use modified last in width?Considering that in some markets, these shoes are available also in US E and EE width.
I think they are of same standard.Probably big stores with high volume could have better price from factories for their rebranded shoes.Fox example Shipton & Heneage is actually selling rebranded C&J shoes for 259 £
