    I have a pair of C&J shoes from Gordon Scott. They fit wonderfully well, and look great, and I'm interested in getting more pairs on the same last, but I'm confused.

    The lettering inside reads: 5014 11B 8 1/2E K3348

    So the last is K3348? Does that make any sense? Can anyone point me in the direction of more of these?

    Sounds like they're on the new 348 last?

    Aha! That makes sense. [​IMG]

    They're about two years old, though. I have to say, they are amazing.

    I think the 348 last was only introduced last year. Here's a pic of a shoe made on this last:

    - note the elongated chisel toe.

    Okay. Does anyone know if C&J has a last #347? If so, any pics or description? I'm still try to solve a C&J / Peal mystery.
