Dunhill shoes A nice deal - from the pics they look to have been made by Grenson.
What made you conclude that they were Grenson? The shape of the oval with the size on it and the fact that the lining looks like it's slightly grained like Grenson typically does it?
The interesting thing is that Edward Green calls that shoe (Adelaide cap-toe) the Canturbury, but it doesn't really have the look of an Edward Green.
It was the nail-pattern on the heel and the look of the rubber-inset that made me think Grenson. But now that you mention it, the lining does look like my Grensons. There used to be a U-throat oxford in the Masterpieces range like those Dunhills.
Without closer look, my first guess is Grenson too, though Grenson usually doesn't write the style name inside shoes, but they might in the PS shoes.
Come to think of it, Green doesn't write style name in the shoes either. Lobb does, so does Trickers --- but those are definitely not Lobb or Trickers. The other possibility is Alfred Sargent, as they make some of the PS shoes (Jodhpur boots this season), but it doesn't look like a Sargent last either. So my best guess is Grenson.
Separate names with a comma.
