    I believe josepidal asked C&J about the Tellman and says they are C&J handgrades. IMMSMC, unlike the Whitehalls, they have a double stitched toe cap and come on a different last (Whitehalls a traditional roundtoe, the Tellmans a bit longer and squarish).

    lots of debates about whether polo channelled soled shoes = C&J Handgrades.

    no way to really know for sure.

    tellman is not whitehall in disguise.
    it is not really any one of the benchgrade or handgrade models, it is just a model made exclusively for polo, some sort of hybrid of bench andhand.
