Yes Looks like the same shoes are at STP right now for $445, so this seems like a nice price.

Hey now, I wear 13s -- does that mean I need to use the "Senator-free" stalls?

N&L jodhpurs, some use, low price -- not sure who made, probably C&J, but notice the buckles are in the shape of stirrups -- that's a neat little detail.

Yes, that or if you are looking to affect a particular piece of legislation, let's just say that you could have a lot of sway with certain senators.

I have this exact shoe and use it--being a black plain-toe oxford--for more formal occasions like weddings and funerals. It's from the C&J Main Collection ("benchgrade" line) and is on the 318 last, which, as you can see from the picture, is a fairly sleek last with linearly tapered sides running to the toe, a slight squaring-off at the toe, and just a hint of a chisel form. To my eye, it is as far as I would go--for a shoe for more formal wear--in this direction. It is no longer in the C&J catalog, nor available from PLal or Pediwear, having been replaced by the Alex, on the sleeker (and a little too stylized for more formal dress, IMO) 348 last. I would bet that the 318 is a little more forgiving than the 348 and would be more likely to provide a good fit. It has about the right appearance in my opinion for this kind of use, with its wholecut character the only thing that might dissuade a few from wearing it in such situations.

As for price, it depends on how much you need a shoe like this. If you do need such a shoe in your rotation, this is a very nice one, and I would say that anything up to about 150 GBP (about $300 US) would be a very good price--particularly if you can avoid high shipping charges by having it sent to London. Anything in the 100-125 GBP range is a steal. These are, after all, brand new shoes.

Just as an aside, when I got mine, I got them to a good cobbler and had the soles trimmed back about 1/8" (from the waist forward)--a $10 job. This made them even more suitable for restrained occasions.

I just rolled the dice and BIN'ed these for $9.99. This is the only picture....I'm setting the opening odds at even money for shell. Nice roll in the front and I like the sheen on the side...possible light creasing in the front, however. Thoughts?

More of a monk-strap chukka than a jodhpur really.

thanks for the great info. I don't need/plan to have a shoe for weddings and funerals. I was hoping to wear the shoes to work...what do you think of that idea?

Hmm, you will find out for sure soon enough, but I don't think so. Looks like the standard Florsheim Imperial burgundy leather. What's the URL?

They'd be great for that too.
