    Have any of you encountered these previously? I just bought them at the sale. Nice shoes but not something I'd ever seen before.

    Wondering if they are a C&J Paris shoe, a new one (I assume not since they are on sale), or just run-of-the mill that doesn't get seen very often. They are handgrades.

    Will post a pic when I get a chance.

    Are those on the 337 handgrade last?

    Good question. It's not indicated inside the shoe (at least not in a way I can interpret).

    IIRC the Weymouth is on the 337, and my Weymouths are not the same shape as these. These seem pointier.

    I don't have that much information about them, frankly, which is why I posted.

    I've never seen them and I can't find them in the 2009 Catalogue. Could that be the 348 last? They seem to use it for alot of their Monks.

    looks to be on the 348 last.

    I don't see what's so special about this monkstrap, other than on a different last.

    Certainly similar to the 348, but assumed they weren't since I've only ever seen the 348 on "benchgrade" shoes. Didn't do a side-by-side with my Tetbury's etc.

    Sort of nice that people haven't encountered these before. A little extra exclusivity...

    Lee, nothing too exciting other than that they are not the usual catalogue item. But good looking shoes IMO.

    Zippy -- does look like a non-boot version of those, but with the handgrade-type leather soles rather than dainite. Interesting to see "348" in pen on yours.
