Very nice!
Very interesting toning like modern burnishing. Definite 40s with the lack of the V cleat and quality of manufacture not to mention last shape. I hope you did not sell them for a song. They are like a $300 shoe on eBay. What size were they?
I think earlier like the later 50s with that slightly spade sole like bulge and the heel design
Never forget Mad Dogs and Englishmen wore the grooves off the LP and the movie was just as good if not more engaging.

C&J for RL Dub Monks in British Tan from early 2000s (Bentons). Basically C&J handgrades at a cheaper price thanks to RL and ahead of their time style wise.
So true. The price of lenses has risen dramatically as well and when asked why the answer given is "they are like bespoke these days" FWIW>
Miss having that bloke around. Such an interesting guy yet a creature of his time in many ways.
The Japanese shoemakers are killing it. The quality of manufacture and finishing is so far ahead of the UK and Italian makers it is astounding.
