novaguy, but what about the suede derby with channeled soles above? the same medallion seems pretty suggestive me that the channeled shoes are c&j.
anyway, still a good deal I think even if they aren't.
I bought a pair of the Alton suede wingtip derbies during the RL sale last fall and C&J confirmed in an email that they are Handgrades on the 337 last. FWIW, I went down 1/2 size, from US 12D to US 11.5D for these shoes (I had tried them on in the Georgetown store the previous August). They are just a smidge tight in the toebox, but not uncomfortably so.
