Second pair definitely C&J.

 

The first pair...maybe not.

post #1502 of 2315

First pair is Edward Green; it's similar to their own 'Dundee' model veldtschoen shoe but with brogue detailing, also made on the 58 last.

 

For what it's worth, I've only seen C&J and EG shoes made for Holland & Holland although I've heard that Cheaney might have made for them as well. The original EG 'Galway' boot was first made by them for Holland & Holland as a field/shooting boot and I've a pair, on the 64 F last as opposed to EG's standard 64 E last.

I've a pair of Brooks Brothers mini lug boat shoes. Yes, boat shoes. The stamp shows the following



Does anyone know who the maker could be?

Says 'Made in the Dominican Republic'

Thank you

It used to be the case (maybe it still happens) that Northampton manufacturers who had too much work, would farm-out certain steps to one of their fellow-firms who stilll had production capacity. "Can we send you 600 pairs for sole stitching?". In this case firm A would supply the material and the specifications, while firm B just carried out the work.

Also, sometimes a firm might not have the right machinery for a certain job, but it doesn't make economic sense to invest in those machines. I believe, for all the EG shoes in Veltschoen construction (probably not more than a few hundred per year) the actual Veltschoen production step is carried out by C&J. That does not mean C&J makes those shoes.

Apologies. I was confusing church's and cheaney. Thank you for the help!

Bought these under the impression (was told) they were Crockett & Jones. 6.5 would normally be a 7.5 or there abouts.

 

Pretty sure they are actually Alford Sargent?

 

The 6.5D would be EU sizing, right??? They fit like a very small 7 maybe...

 

Any help would be great

No biggie, I'm just trying to confirm as I need to sell them (too small by 1/2 to 1 full size). I didn't even have shoe trees small enough to fit in them.

 

Going by the 1st page I see (and they look spot on for AS to me) :puzzled:

 

C&J


(current benchgrade heel pattern on Radstock model)

 

AS


(current heel on Westminster)

EDIT: Nevermind, I did some additional sleuthing and found the answer myself, which I'm going to share for educational purposes, since it's really fascinating stuff.  I'm definitely still looking for an answer as to what scene is being depicted on the medallions, so I'd love input on that one if anyone has any.  

 

The images are:  

1) "958" = 95.8% silver, which is called "Brittania" silver; higher purity than sterling.

2) cat/lion's face = made in London after 1820 and/or before 1975 (the 1975 part is harder to verify...sources seem to conflict)

3) archer image = identifies as Brittania silver

http://www.theassayoffice.co.uk/commemorative_marks.html

 

Really really cool stuff.  /EDIT

 

 

Ok, so this is a real shot in the dark, but any jewelry/precious metal experts want to chime in on this one?  This is the front and back of some amazing and HEAVY as all hell medallion buttons found on a fully bespoke Huntsman sportcoat.  

 

A) Can anyone tell me what the symbols on the back mean?  My best guess is the "958" is possibly a 95.8% rare metal purity amount (although a fairly odd percentage)...I'm thinking maybe sterling silver.  Here are each of the pictures/symbols as far as I can tell:  

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

                                                                                                                                                                                                      2

"AV"                   An image an archer      "958"              A lion/cat's face                  "a"              a cross with the numbers:     0      9

                                                                                                                                                                                                      0                                                                    

 

B) Does anyone have any idea what the scene depicts or what the words say?  My 1st year PhD Latin roommate thinks it might be Latin, and he said it might be depicting some sort of a Christian coronation scene.  Anyone have more info than that from that little context?

 

 

This is definitely one of the weirder ID'ing attempts, so any information or even suggestions of where else I might try is appreciated.  This jacket (and 5 other Poole/Huntsman pieces) were owned by a former US Senator.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And additional Huntsman porn for anyone interested:
