    Just purchased a new pair of older stock Peal BB chukkas in pebble grain with a Dainite sole. The interior hand marking are unfamiliar to me and differ from my older BB Peals. As there are no heel nails I can't tell the maker. Anyone know if these are C&J or Sargents?

    could be either. the information is quite generic.

    btw - brooks has used italian makers in the past.

    I probably won't be able to help, since I use nail patterns to distinguish, but it would probably be easier to tell if you could post pictures of the soles and interior markings.

    The soles are the standard English Dainite - same as Edward Green and C&J use. The interior hand markings read :

    87D 06632

    11 1/2 347-1315

    MADE IN ENGLAND

    The pads under the heel cover appear to be the same 3-lobed kind used by C&J.

    Thanks for any help.

    Looked at several recently-made labeled C&J. They all have a two-digit-one-letter code, as in "87D", unrelated to size or width.
