At least from the ones I own, the AS Exclusives have, compared to C&J BG, better leather uppers, beveled edge, channeled/covered soles, and better finishing.

Ultimate the fit will dictate though. The 348 is very different from the 724.

At the end of the day, both are good shoes.

I'm in shock, I received a return email from cj in NY. The price for a handgrade alex is 1250$. Wow that's more than double the price for a bench grade model and 500$ more than the waymouth same show with brogueing unreal. At that rate I'd rather a ladbroke top drawer.

Interesting, does not show in their online catalog, that should be the most upto date

I tried a pair on in NY but really wanted a handgrade model. Really clean shoe, sharp. I think sky valet carried it also.

I think what drove up the price is that to get a HG version of the Alex (black wholecut), it would have to be MTO. I think the NYC store stocks HG around $800 and MTO is 50% of that so I that would bring it to the $1250 range. I think it is less Mr. Bond than it is upgrading to HG (MTO).

At that price you can get G&G Sinatra.

Far better shoes for the same or less money:

Vass
Edward Green
St. Crispin's (maybe? - $)
G & G
many others I can't think of right now

Islay owners, how do you guys care for yours? I'm using Saphir products, and find that using their wax polish would make sense, but what colour? And would you occasionally use renovateur or cream polish as well? Opinions much appreciated!

 

Cheers,

SKM
