They are RTW, can not recall model name. They are Anthony C. Line.
If you send them the picture, I am sure they will be able to fill your order.

Whew that was a long read.

Regardless, I still think the AC line is nice. If it's really made by EG, wouldnt mind grabbing a pair in the future because I prefer the more elongated and sleeker lasts as opposed to EG's own more conservation styles

don't they have 2 line of RTW, one guess by CJ, one guess by EG, so I guess depends on which line size might be different too...

Someone might find this collection of bespoke Cleverley interesting. Seller is selling around 17 or so I counted in size ~11,5 UK says the seller but no measurements are listed. Worth asking I guess!

The oxford with laces and only inside elastic is weird.

Those shoes look ... off. Something about their proportions.

GC RTW is C&J
GC for Kingsman / Anderson & Sheppard is AS
AC is EG

The above also reflects the hierarchy of quality.

I think their rtw lines are made both by CJ, AS and EG depending on the specific line or model.

For example from the below list the first one is clearly made by AS. The heel, last and sole work scream Alfred sargent. The second one instead is CJ, again the heel, nails, sole work (identical to Handgrade line) and leather colour are very typical of CJ.

Cleverley by CJ: https://therake.com/george-cleverley-brown-burnished-calfskin-jones-oxford-shoes.html

I am not sure about the Anthony Cleverley line, could be both Edward Green or Alfred Sargent. I am inclined to believe that at least some of the AC are made by Alfred Sargent with "handgrade specifications", but I could be wrong.
