Look at the sole of the linked C&J for BB shoe.  A channeled sole means that stitching is not visible.

C&J does channeled soles on their BB shoes? I thought they only did those for the Handgrade line?

So, are shoes going to be 40% + 15%, or 25% + 15%? Conflicting info... confused.gif

Some C&J Peal shoes have channel stitching. Others do not.

C&J Peals use a different font for the name "Peal & Co" on the insole. The blocky font on the left shoe is C&J. The other shoe is not C&J.

Does the kicker apply to the base price after the initial 25% discount, or is it compounded to 40% off retail?

i.e.

Is it MSRP - 40%

OR

MSRP - 25% = New total: and then New Total - 15%

I think the nail pattern reveals the maker to be C&J

Edit: All three shoes have the same nail pattern. Doesn't a nail in the middle of the heel indicate C&J Construction?

All three are made by C&J

Not always true. I have C&J for BB (perforated cap-toe on 240 last) made with channeled sole, C&J for BB (Algonquin toe on 317 last) made with channeled sole as well, but C&J for BB (pebble grain algonquin toe on 325 last) made with exposed sole stitches.

This sale looks a bit confusing. I'm guessing that this will be the best time of year to buy a suit. Should I just add them to my cart and then pull the trigger the second the sale happens?

Eh. I've always found the term "channeled soles" confusing, since there is open channeled and close channeled.

While this list does look more realistic, the 40+15 is what my mgmt told me, and that's what our SAs pre-selling at.
The company did change some of the sales comparing to last year. We didn't have the shirt sale this year, and we introduced Black Friday sale at retail locations.
There are also different labour laws in Canada, that enforce the company to pay higher fees on payroll. However, the movement is to lower prices in Canada to bring it closer to US prices.

Sorry, what is SA? And you mentioned contacting you for pre-sale. Would that apply even if I am not in Canada?

Interesting. If that's right, then all of the Peal & Co shoes on the website except the $248 Field Chukkas are C&J.

Actually you can't infer that from my statement. I am saying that all of the C&J Peals I have handled have had the block font. I can not say for certain whether all of the block font shoes I have handled have been C&J.

I use a combination of indicators to determine whether a shoe is C&J: font, type of marking inside the shoe, and last number. Since BB doesn't show photos of the inside wall markings, which include last number, then being able to handle the shoes makes ID much easier. Look for the last number inside the shoe and check it against the C&J numbers. 240 is common but there are others. The C&J shoes use handwritten markings on the inside while the others usually have numbers and letters. And to clarify, I wouldn't swear that all non C&J shoes have machine printed size/stock #/last info, but that may be the case.

It is my opinion that having a C&J last number is the most accurate single indicator of a C&J Peal shoe.
