Those are definitely AS, on 89 or 87 last.

Thanks, that definitely explains why they are so snug.

They are C&J on the 224 last which generally fits true-to-size.

AS Peals are marked in an entirely different way from C&Js.

@theyare

That link is of the AS chukka (same as the old 2eye AS chukka)

That pic should be of this:

same as C&J Chiltern, with stormwelt.

These are the boots well-kept is referring to, the first link is AS boots.

Sorry, i'm a little confused.

Here's a pic of the full boot, which does NOT appear to be the same as the C&J Chiltern - they are the 2 eyelet that appear to be the AS one on the brooks bros website.
However based on the writing inside you are saying it's C&J 224 last?
It's possible these are older stock as well.

and again the writing inside

Probably now are made both by C&J, 2 eye and 3 eye, but the picture on the site is still of the old version by AS

See the Chertsey, http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/bios/item/chertsey1645-2wr/

Well, yes, those are C&J. 224 last. That's how all C&Js for BB are hand-marked. Model number followed by size. Below that is the last #. They've done them this way for at least 20 years.

Also the nomenclature typeface on the heel pad is C&Js. AS uses a different, more elongated typeface.

ok, I didn't see these pictures at work, these are clearly CJ, however, you provided a link to AS boots on BB website.

Are these C&J, Alfred Sargent, or neither?

Would also appreciate some commentary on these Peal Chukkas

Are BB using a new type of leather on certain Peal models?

For example: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Merchant_Id=1&Section_Id=523&Product_Id=1561346&Parent_Id=522&default_color=DARK-BROWN&sort_by=&sectioncolor=&sectionsize=

I'm no expert but it seems to be a kind of high shine calf. Any idea how it ages? It's a bit on the plasticky side in person and I tend to prefer a more natural texture. I'm still on the fence about it.

Jeez CY you are on top of this stuff. I trusted you the first time about them being AS. I just wanted to make sure since it seems that there is a debate on every other shoe. What color polish have you been using on yours?
