This C&J 348 last strikes me as pretty similar in concept to the C&J 337 last, designed by Dimitri Gomez, and I find it really sleek and appealing (I'd be interested in knowing whether it too was designed by Dimitri Gomez). It appears to be the C&J regular-grade equivalent of the Handgrade 337 last. There are a bunch of new regular-grade C&Js on this last appearing all of a sudden--the Alex, Drummond, Hallam, Croydon, Merton, and Tetbury boot, as well as the spectator shown above, the Guildford. There's also a new C&J 350 last. I've seen it on one shoe (the Handgrade Balmuir) on the C&J French website, and, in my opinion, it's a winner too.
