How do you identify C&J made shoes at Brooks Brothers?

Some styles are made on the very old last 88.

Foster & Son stocks reay-to-wear shoes at various price points, some of the cheaper ranges come from either Cheaney or Barker (maybe both).



Everybody in Northampton has made shoes for Gieves at one time. The current crop is from Cheaney.


I was under the impression Gieves and Hawkes was made by Grenson.

I think the last number and nail pattern are the indicators. A thread which discusses is here: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=24109

Hi,

I recently purchased this pair of shoes from Charles Tyrwhitt - and I wanted to confirm who made them.

I see in this thread that Loake were mentioned as making shoes for CT, but I would like to know who made this particular pair so in future I can use them for repairs.

I did ask in the shop and the lady would only say an English shoe maker.

One thing...I paid £140 for them in the sale rather than the price shown!

Thanks

My local NM started to carry Brioni lace-ups ($1200-ish), and I can tell you they ain't made by SL without so much as looking @ the price tag.
In unrelated news, Sutor dumped Borrelli (not the other way around) - so they went with Peluso.
As overall quality went into shithouse, Borrrelli dumped them and switched to Alexander.
Loads better product than Peluso.
Figure about $850-plus for a pair of handsome, penny loafers in chestnut.


P.S. I've been informed that Sutor is more or less done producing shoes for private labels.

BB has a tobacoo suede captoe model that's more or less a steady item in their Peal line-up.
It's made by A&S as well as C&J. I kid you not.
The A&S one is $30 more dear. Though you can hardly tell the two apart.
Here's that shoe which looks much better in person.

Mostly AS, and apparently @shipton france the C&J models are far and few between.

Updates:
G&G for Paul Stuart Ltd. Ed. and a handful of RLPL models

Hermes now stocks a handful of models made by JLP, the majority of Hermes mens shoes are still made by an unknown Italian maker with much lower quality than JLP.

Any other updates?

You will not find any JLP at Hermes unless they are closeout items.

I heard the RL 'Made in Italy' come from Silvano Sasetti

http://www.sassettisilvano.it/ - (If you can cope with the sound.)

Whether this applies to all of the collection(s) or only certain styles, I wouldn't know

Brilliant! It's a website for a shoe manufacturer with no shoes on it. Combo that with an irritating flash doohickey and the word contact misspelled for a real winner. Clearly they're shoemakers and not web designers.
