Well, here's a question. If this is really supposed to be an "official" thread a la the Alden thread, hopefully someone can help on this.
Just acquired these literally free as part of a mind-blowing stroke of luck on Ebay. I've only ever seen two other pairs of C&J - one is my RL Darltons and the other was a C&J Malvern suede that I let go as being too narrow.
Either way, 95% of my shoes are Alden shell, so I've very little clue on C&J identification.
Obviously, they're blucher/derbies, and obviously they've got a wingtip. What does one call the line going back from the blucher, almost like a bastardization of a wingtip and a longwing blucher? These have leather soles, but I wouldn't have been surprised to see a rubber sole on them.
The insole identifies them as Crockett & Jones made for Gordon Scott, a store formerly on New Bond Street. My confusion is this: they're labeled "Greenwich" but that's clearly the Gordon Scott name, as the C&J Greenwich is a boot. These are on the 317 last. I haven't been able to find any trace of this model on Google or searches here; thus, I turn here as a last resort before concluding they were a special make for that store. Does anyone know if these correspond to a C&J model, or indeed anything about this type of shoe?
The shoes fit quite nicely, and I'm happy to have them in the closet. Now, to find space on the shelves...
Numbers on the inside are as follows:
