I decided to try these out. I'll try to report back with pics and sizing comments when they arrive.

Is there any chance these are not C&J?

I recently acquired the Peal and Co. Cordovan Boot, which as you can see is the identical model only in Cordovan. They are definitely C&J. Made on the 240 last which is apparently a custom last for Brooks Brothers. The 240 fits almost identically to the 325, in my opinion. Very well made and comfortable out of the box. I'm sure you will enjoy them.

The EXPRESS14 discount works on the fed ex 1-3 days by crediting it $22. That shipping is $22+10 so not free shipping, but still saved some money there too. All in was like $460 since Illinois pays tax.

I really hope these fit well. As boots I'm more flexible using thicker socks if needed. Worst case I head into a Chicago store and return.

Signs were pointing to buy, including my wife buying pot pie for dinner today haha! Made In England. Not to mention looking at some more pictures of them in this thread and online. It was an easy decision haha now I have my Xmas gift.

Umm,

Still a good deal and worth the fit gamble.

They are, based on what I saw.

Is Grenson Masterpiece still around? It looks like the highest Grenson line is called G Zero. Is it the same thing?

My understanding is that Grenson still produces shoes for Paul Stuart to Masterpiece standards.  I have both the Grenson for PS and C&J for Brooks Brothers/Peal, and the PS Grenson's are at least as good as the Peal C&J's.  However, I cannot confirm that this is going to be the case for the particular boots being discussed here.

Thanksm, but my question is about whether Grenson still produces a line called "Masterpiece". I can't find any info on their website. The highest line they produce is called G Zero. And they retail for abut $1k.

Nope, no Grenson "Masterpiece" any longer.  They have rebranded all of their stuff, and decreased the quality of a lot of it through outsourcing production.  There are a few SF threads on this, for example:

I think it's old stock, not sure, but the quality is OUTSTANDING, especially for the price.

oops I even looked at faq section for return policy and didn't see that. I'm sure it will work out.
