How did I missed this? The ones in the far right, the ones that look as if they were calf, are awesome!

 

Will they be in stock another time?

Betelgeuse,

 

They will indeed and I will be sure to let you know. All sold out for the time being I'm afraid!

Nice looking shoes. God, I love a good split-toe.

It looks to me like a moulded rubber sole (particular as it is stitched "aloft"). Whether JEDDITE is the name of the design (like Dainite or Ridgeway) or the long defunct manufacturer, I wouldn't know.

Ask the shoe museum in Northampton. They are very helpful and will be checking their archive to find out.

Veg Tan,

 

Bengal is correct. I've just checked with Andy and Jeddite is the name of the sole manufacturer.

I am amazed that the crepe leather combination sole was used then! Still used now by Alden but blokes in the Alden thread have a love-hate relationship with it!

Jeddite= monogram for Star Wars fan?

I see that the 1939 Brooks brochure still makes reference to Russia Calf. It was certainly around and about then-- there's a Lord Peter Wimsey mystery from the late 20s where Inspector Parker proves to be aware of its smell. I wonder how similar to the Cleverley Reindeer that would be.
