I think that some models are made for Ben Silver only so you might be out of luck. Ben Silver mark up is ridiculous though, $700 for C&J is pretty steep.Good luck.

starting to tire of the shape of my 2 pairs in 348s and multiple calfskins... really liking the 337 of these these i believe are handgrade, just dont like that they encroach into territory of more upmarket shoes

They are Grenson Masterpiece. They are US sized, but run small. Equal in quality to C&J Handgrade, IMHO. Also, the last is very similar to the 337.


I have a pair of Paul Stuart shoes. The are quite nice.

Very nice looking shoe. Too bad sizes stop at 12D

Pretty sure Ben Silver is the only place you can get the Albany. I spent a lot of time looking for it once and kept getting told that C&J only sold it through Ben Silver.

They get "leaked out" at C&J factory stores, I've seen them sold on ebay UK and they can also be found in Paris and Japan. I doubt that Ben Silver has exclusive rights to this design.
