    I think so, not 100% positive. However, the monkstrap, that has the same line down it, definitely is - Paul Stuart carries it. So, I would assume this one is too. Marc - I am selling a 7D cordovan-colored tassle loafer, Grenson Masterpieces. Wore them once, and they are too small. Let me know, otherwise it's going to Ebay starting at $125.

    Most definitely NOT the stowe. I would guess that it is not a masterpiece, but I'm not certain.

    Doubt that it is a Masterpiece, but it is quite exotic and unique, probably made for Cordinere Anglais. If so, then it costs about 375 Euros, about $505.00. Ask Ernest; he may be able to check it out for you in Paris.

    I do not know about the master because I have never seen one pair BUT it looks like CA style.

    Classic with a touch of novelty.

    The price are between 350 and 400 euros. I noticed a discount before sales today in the shop.

    Those aren't masterpieces. The Masterpieces have a channeled sole, so you can't see the stitching, also they have a little oval shape inside the shoe itself (for the most part) Masterpieces are a little higher quality than other grades of Grensons, looks like you got a pretty decent deal on the shoes you bought, but your link has an extra http// in it.

    Masterpieces retail for $625 or so. The shoes you got seem to be quite nice.

    And up. New and Lingwood sells them for 395 pounds, which is nearly 800 dollars with the exchange rate, as their "St James" shoes -- formerly called Poulsen Skone. Robbery.

    It's my understanding that a lot of the shoes may not be sold in the Grenson Masterpieces line, as that's a fairly small collection. However, a lot of the shoes appear to be made to Masterpiece standards -- the Stuart's Choice shoes among them, and (I believe) the Ducker & Sons, etc. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the Cordonnerie Anglaise shoes were made to Masterpiece standards of quality. FWIW, on the British shoe retail websites, Grenson Masterpieces are about $525 regular price. I believe they're just a step or two down from Lobb RTW or Edward Green in quality -- right there with Crockett & Jones handgrade.
