I've read previously on SF that Brooks has C&J make them to a standard somewhere in between benchgrade and handgrade, but I'm not expert enough to know. However, I can tell you that I have this model in both brown and black and they are great shoes. Comfortable, well-made and timeless.

Anyway, I snagged 4 extra slim fit shirts - 3 button-down collar, one spread. Maybe I'm lucky, but they fit extremely well and $49 is a great price.

BB's IT is always f*ed up like that, not the first time it happened. What one can do is go to the general items, then look for sale inside instead in the sale section exclusively. I know it's painful, but oh well

p.s. by the way looks like this is just like the BBBF flash sale in the sense they're bringing out old stock as well, I can see bunch Calf Alden for BB which I don't think is available anymore

The channeled soles are throwing me off. The other CJ offerings don't have them.

Most C&Js have channeled soles at BB I believe, not handgrade standards for sure though

If you look at the other CJ shoes on the BB website, their soles have the exposed stitching (while the single monks don't). The EGs for BB also have the sealed soles.

I'm sure they have one, but it is normally different.

Historically, the made by C&J Peal have had channelled soles.  The consensus has always been that they were nicer than benchgrade, but below handgrade standards.  Not sure about the current offerings, though.

Saw that they had the Peal & Co perf. cap toe in EE width now. Would that be equivalent to C&J's G width?

Winston is slipping.  He's usually here in the first 5 minutes to correct us by saying the correct term is "channel-free" soles.

I thought the proper term is closed-channel soles. There is still a channel there, it is just not visible, at least until you wear them 5 times.

Did I use the term incorrectly? I'm referring to the non-exposed stitching on the sole.

Not sure what photos are online and if shoes have changed recently but all peals by AS and C&J I have seen / owned had channeled soles. There are also peal ones made by loake and such that don't
