Only C&J could confirm... It could't be the 302 but something similar, in my opinion it isn't the 72...too different... Anyway no problem sir...
You are very wrong Sir...C&J have dozen and dozen of lasts in their archive, they obviously don't use only the lasts you can see in the catalogue or website...I know well last 72, I owned the Shipton & Heneage Wilton, made on this last, it is far different from Marlow tassel last...it's a classic rounded toe, anything -long narrow- or sleek like the marlow.N&L is New & Lingwood, they choose to use the C&J 302 Last for their Butterly Loafers, which I handled recently, its...
Rl tassel aren't on the 72 which is more rounded. 99% they are on the 302, same last used by N&L for their Buttefly Loafers.
I agree with you about the difference far less noticeable than regular calf but if there's a RTW maker where you can feel the difference is JL.JL suede is the nicest I've ever handled, simply sublime quality.EG suede is pretty comparable with C&J and others, IME JL is definitely nicer.

I "burn" regularly all my suede shoes, it's the best method to make them to look always fine and brand new. (it's used also during production line at final finish stage) Simply be careful near stitching.
I've just returned a blazer bought on Yoox for my father (Size 54)(this one: http://images.yoox.com/41/41529897ip_14_f.jpg)The quality of the jacket is very nice overall, nice cut too, but it is fused, with a heavy fusing, not so great.The big problem was the sizing, completely off, I bought a 54 and it fits like a regular 50 / slim 52.I could have kept it for me, it fits me very nice (I am a 50) but I did not like the fusing and the micropattern of the fabric, not visible...
Bear in mind that Ben Silver C&J are Us sized and D width which is narrower than UK E Width, I doubt you can fit into them if you are a US EE
