    Black Paul Stuart calf/suede bal boots from 1990. Are these Grenson?

    ^ Can't really help you with those, but they're beautiful. Only Stuart makers I'm familiar with are EG for Stuart's Choice and Grenson for the rest, so I'm leaning that you're correct.

    Any insight on these?

    I've always had these markings as being C&J myself, rightly or wrongly. I've seen them identified as such elsewhere but can't remember where. I used to have a fantastic pair of McAfee-branded spectators with similar markings, and someone who works for C&J themselves thought that I might have been right with the maker...

    Happy to be corrected by anyone who knows better, though!

    I think 90s were the EG era, though can't be sure.

    The first pair are by Cheaney. The second, I agree, are Alden. Not sure on the third.

    Trying to identify this pair of shoes. Looks to have been re-soled but I am not sure. Not even a size listed that I can see. reads 2C2 / 035 926

    Have you checked the small pocket in the bottom left, for your pocket watch? The Attolini tag is usually in there. Does Coppley make for Coppley? Or is this the Samuelsohn tag? [​IMG] Edit: Wait, just saw the CA # and remembered that someone once posted a website to look up CA registration numbers. I bookmarked it but have since lost my bookmarks due to a Windows 7 upgrade. Can someone post that website link again? Edit 2: Found it. Coppley.
