1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Thanks, that definitely explains why they are so snug.

    They are C&J on the 224 last which generally fits true-to-size.

    AS Peals are marked in an entirely different way from C&Js.

    Sorry, i'm a little confused.

    Here's a pic of the full boot, which does NOT appear to be the same as the C&J Chiltern - they are the 2 eyelet that appear to be the AS one on the brooks bros website.
    However based on the writing inside you are saying it's C&J 224 last?
    It's possible these are older stock as well.

    and again the writing inside

    Well, yes, those are C&J. 224 last. That's how all C&Js for BB are hand-marked. Model number followed by size. Below that is the last #. They've done them this way for at least 20 years.

    Also the nomenclature typeface on the heel pad is C&Js. AS uses a different, more elongated typeface.

    ok, I didn't see these pictures at work, these are clearly CJ, however, you provided a link to AS boots on BB website.

    Jeez CY you are on top of this stuff. I trusted you the first time about them being AS. I just wanted to make sure since it seems that there is a debate on every other shoe. What color polish have you been using on yours?

    Are those AS? Do you think they are a good deal @ Eur 330 (USD 435)

    Sure likes like C&J, interior size writing would answer definitively. Just saw those listed for sale as well, pretty sweet. (Not my size)
