    I know Brooks English has come up a bunch of times. Based on my review of past posts there really is no one easy answer when it comes to Brooks English. Telling features of this shoe include BROOKS BROTHERS MADE IN ENGLAND on the sole and the non-scripted lettering. Also, what in the world is size 410 C? Thanks!

    Possible answer thanks to TheBurnOut: Cheany, 8.5-9 ish narrow

    Funny I was just going to ask about these "Made in Great Britain" Brooks English shoes but came to the same conclusion they are prob made by Cheany... Then I pop in to search for similar inside number and see your post.

    Shoes have Dainite soles so no nail pattern to look at.

    Hey, I just search this thread for Jcrew. It didn't come up once, according to the search function. Odd, but, does anyone know who makes their Italian shoes, particularly suede longwings with lug soles?

    This comes from a "higher end" dept store that closed about 5 years ago. No maker tag - just a tag for the store and this

    Not really the type of heels the thread refers to, but someone might know.

    The second one is upside down, it's F21 (Forever 21)

    Maybe Alfred Sargent? They usually have the double row.

    Any idea on the maker of these chukkas made for Brocklehurst of Bakewell? I'm town between Loake for the print on the inner side, and Cheaney for the stamp on the footbed. It seems to be a bit of a mismatch...

    Looks like Corneliani, but not 100% sure.

    Looks like an EX width. Loake makes an EX fitting, but I don't think Cheaney does so Loake gets my vote.

    Thanks, I'd noted the EX not being a Cheaney width fitting so will assume that the stamp inside the shoes isn't exclusive to Cheaney.

    Cheers!
