The Peals at BB are ok, but there is something not quite right with them IMO. I'm not sure what it is, but I don't like them as much.
I know what you're talking about. The white on these is suede (or, rather, probably nubuck), which is good, but the brown leather is too dark for them to be really appealing.
Ben Silver has some great C&Js in their most recent catalogue. I'm thinking about those. See here.
I don't like those at all. They use white leather, which just looks garish to me; and I don't particularly like the pattern: the throat should be brown, not white. They just look strange.
Anywhere else I should look?
If you were willing to consider cap-toes rather than wing-tips and you were willing to spend $850, I'd suggest the Purple Label spectators that Ralph is carrying this season. They're Cardiffs (Ralph calls them Whittaker) with either cognac antique or Edwardian antique on the toe and heel and white suede on the vamp. Beautiful shoes. If that's a bit too pricey or if you can't live with the cap-toe, I'd do a special order with Gravati or Martegani. Both can produce exactly the shoe that you want for significantly less.
