Nice. Black suede is very cool in a chukka, rock n roll smile.gif

I have a pair and they are awesome. Great shell. Model is essentially the same I believe as the Coniston, pictured a few posts up.

The description says brown. It should be back up on the BB website tomorrow.

A couple of pairs just resoled.

Beautiful job. Was that a direct job by C&J?
post #2167 of 8501
The top pair was done by C&J. Had them done a couple of months ago and the sole went spongey after <10 outings so they did another complete recraft free of charge.
The dainite sole was done by a local cobbler. £125 vs £50 decisions.gif

very nice. i wish the states had more cobblers who could do resoles, toe plates, and provide some of the services you could expect from the factory (repairs, etc).

the description has always said "brown" and it's always been wrong smile.gif

I bought them nearly 2 years ago. the color is pretty similar to AE burgundy shell, not the Alden version of #8. it's certainly not the brown on the Lindrick / Marlow line.

the wonders of gmail. conversation from January 2011:

Me to C&J:

"Hello,
I am interested in the Peal & Co.® Cordovan Boot you have made for Brooks Brothers. But, I am unclear on what color this boot is. Is it Dark Brown or Burgundy?

This is the boot:

C&J to me:

"the Peel boots are made in a Burgundy shell cordovan."

Nice soles. Is this the Albany on the 337?

C&J Ghillies for Barneys

These are a well thought out shoe with a real pizzazz... from the red Dainite soles with interlay red dainite in the heels (nice saving of AUD40 for Topys)... to the sexy ghillie treatment... the unusual beige colour and the detailing like the scotch thistle punching to the counter. For USD259 on sale "I done good" as they say Down Under.

Very nice. Did they originally have that much shape to the waist?

Thanks for the post. Interesting.

I suspected they might be burgundy, but thought the website must have it right ....

I have also seen it the other way where others refer to dark brown as burgundy. Go figure ....

Does anybody have experience with the 325 last as well as with the 236 last? How do the compare with each other? Many thanks.

Anyone?
