but the nails!? the nails???? i have several pairs of C&J branded shoes and the nail pattern is different. However, the writing, font, etc inside the shoes is identical
single row is CJ, double is AS
this shoe will indefinitely go straight to the clearance rack, and when it does...
thanks for the clarification, pebblegrain. Now what about the nails at the dovetail? dont C&J shoes have 3 nails?
A while back, somebody posted the Fall preview, and I stated that I would kop the 2-3 sack patch pocket camelhair sportcoat at full price. Not at $1450 I won't! Bleh!

who is the target customer?
saw these in person. like petting a horse and a cow, with one swell swoop
^^^^ They would have been cool if the hairy part was just the saddle.
That was Jesus Christ referring to Helena Rubinstein right?
Back to the original question/post.
So what is the big deal about whether C&J or AS made the shoes?
Is one suppose to be better than the other? Do you have more bragging rights with one than the other?
A spilt toe double sole marked 11d is on eBay and the outsole is 317 mm while my Darltons marked 10.5 are 323mm. Both are afaik on same last and have the same sole. So can outsole length be comparable in this case ? Does the split toe run small ?
I have 11 in both models so if you are 10.5 in darltons, they might be too big for you.
This is what the listing says
I offer for auction this pair of size UK 10 D (U.S. 10.5/11 ------- EU 44) normal width fitting this classically plain yet elegant 5 tie Derby style lace up with handsewn toe seams which are cut from finest hand burnished dark brown grain calf leather formed on last 325. This particular pair are MTO for the USA market and size on lining shows U.S size 11 D which puts them somewhere between UK 10 and UK 10.5 so please check measurements before bidding, they feature goodyear welted DOUBLE thick leather soles ...
Are the chukka boots with three eyelets a different maker than those with two eyelets?
I think the link to the first ones are C&J and the second are AS.
