    Seller The Goldpfeil shop has, not suprisingly, scads of Goldpfeil items, including many small leather items and some larger pieces.
    http://www.ebay.com/sch/the_goldpfe...3A6&rt=nc&_ipg=200&_trksid=p3911.c0.m14.l1514

    Three of the most striking are this black leather duffle: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-GOLDPFE...5?pt=US_CSA_MWA_Backpacks&hash=item20bf6d2259

    this black single-gusset briefcase: http://www.ebay.com/itm/GOLD-PFEIL-...?pt=US_CSA_MWA_Briefcases&hash=item1e5e437399

    and this burgundy laptop bag: http://www.ebay.com/itm/GOLD-PFEIL-...?pt=US_CSA_MWA_Briefcases&hash=item1e5742a84d

    The seller, who is located in Canada, has multiples of each item.

    I bought a pair of brand new Bowen suede shoes, made in England. According to a thread over at AAAC, it seems they were made by AS. Can anyone verify this?

    Anyway, they are size 10.5 UK, which is supposed to be size 11.5 US according to SF logic and the seller. Turns out they are more like a size 11 :plain:

    I'm willing to let these go for what I paid for them if anyone is interested. If not I may try to stretch them out, just worried about mis-labeling them in case they are not AS :)

    This is my first time seeing a pair of glen-plaid fabric shoes: AS for BB Peal&Co 10.5D. And they did a pretty good job with pattern matching too.

    La Botte Web, an online French site, has at least three C&J models on sale:

    Tetbury (2 eyelet chukka) in brown calf (mixed sizes) for approximately $340 delivered to US - http://www.la-botte.com/4dcgi/voir_US/TETBURY_MARRON/RechMArque/[[Marque]]/xx/1
    Derwent (8 eyelet plain toe boot) in brown suede (mixed sizes) for approximately $345 delivered to US - http://www.la-botte.com/4DCGI/voir_us/DERWENT_D_MARRON/RechMarque/CROCKETT_&_JONES/xx/1
    Saunton (tassel loafer) in brown suede (mixed sizes) for approximately $308.00 delivered to US - http://www.la-botte.com/4DCGI/voir_...Fam_us/sans_lacet/1_mocassin/0/100/homme/46/1

    I believe they have one or two other models currently on sale. Also their site announces a sale starting on January 11, 2012.

    Can you please post all the other links with the C&J on sale?

    I received an email from them with a private sale (Jan 7-11, official sales start date in France is Wednesday Jan 11)
    with links for Hogan and Tods only, these are the brands I've bought from them before

    http://www.la-botte.com/selection_tods_vp.shtml


    I've checked this French shop in the last 4 years and never found attracting prices for C&J or Church's. I've been tempted once or twice by Heschung winter boots (when on sale).
