I'm just starting to upgrade from sub-$200 shoes; I picked up a pair of AE Fifth Avenues and threw them back in the shipping box when they arrived because of how hideous they were.  If purchasing in the US, is pediwear still the best place to shop or is it better to phone in to the NYC store and have them ship it from there?

I think that model is AS, if I recall correctly from some previous inquiries. Usually the sole is the best indicator of maker...

Expensive enough to be C&J.

Double nails at heel indicate AS

I think the whole Made in England aspect of Peal & Co is what's driving the prices up.  At 40% off I don't find it that bad of a price as a intro to English made shoes though. 

 

You may be right on the AS.  I did some more digging and on the inside it was stamped with '87' which seems to be AS' 87 last.  That seems to be a very hard last to find here in the States.  If there was a comparable last in the C&J line, what would that be?

Not the exact toe shape but I would say the 341 would have a close feel/fit... Sort of.

I love my Skyes but they don't get anywhere near as much wear as the Islay, so I might be letting them go soon. And you're right, the 325 last is a roomy last, although I'd say that the 228 possibly pips it for overall roominess.

I've now got a pair of the Mallory boots on their way to me from Cheaney, and 'accidentally' ordered a pair of their shearling-lined Irvine brogue boots for a side-by-side comparison with the navy Conistons. One of these pairs, alongside the special order placed with C&J last week, will be part of my kit for this winter...

I only worn my Islay 2 times becuase their color isn't very attractive...

I took delivery of my C&J Skye 2 about 11 months ago, and I think I've worn them about 45 times since. I've done nothing but brush them until now, and I decided to apply a bit of reno to them today.
Not much of a difference to be seen in the photos (crappy iPhone pictures), but they look a bit nicer now. At this rate, these boots will last me 20 years, the soles look pristine.

Lovely.

I could be wrong, but I thought that C&J had (foolishly, in my opinion) discontinued the Tavistock a couple of years ago. How did you manage to find a pair?
post #4947 of 8432

Just my luck. It was available during the summer sale at their Jeremy St store. I snatched it up immediately :)

I love me some austerity and that's a very versatile color. Nice pickup.

I love my Somervilles; I wish I could find a dark brown/suede combo
