(Gatsby @ Feb. 06 2005,21:20) A somewhat related question: does C&J make Handgrades on anything other than last 337?
There are a few "Handgrade" models that come on the last 330. At one time all handgrades came on that last; then last 337 was designed by Dimitri Gomez, now this is the standard for the new handgrade models (also designed by Gomez). I have never seen the last 338, it's not featured in the catalogue in front of me. I guess, taking my clue from the consecutive number, that the 338 is a (new) variation on the 337 with a rounder toe. Maybe the forthcoming spring/summer collection features that last extensively.
Yeah I forgot to check my catalog before making that statement. I think they still use 330 on their loafers but 337 for everything else. Perhaps what the salesman meant to say was that last 338 was specially created for the 125th anniversary as well? I guess we'll see in the next catalog... As for prices, 480~euros or so for Handgrades seems cheap compared to retail in Japan (about 70,000 - 80,000 yen)...

Yes, but they're Santoni, not C&J.

I have the Chester derby handgrade on the 330 last, which I bought last year; however, I can no longer find this model on the C&J, PLal, or Pediwear website. Has C&J discontinued this shoe?

It appears so.. the only Handgrade shoe in the current catalog that uses last 330 is the Rosedery loafer..

Yes it's been discontinued, and has been included in the last two sales at C&J (but unfortunately not in my size...).

The Whitehall is still available.
