    If you look closely, those shoes have closed-channel soles, which puts them higher than regular C&J bench grade models. A lot of people here theorize that some of the peal models are made to a standard that falls in between bench grade and hand grade. If that's the case, they're a solid deal at 30% off.

    And yes, better quality than AE.

    It's probably not fair to compare AE to CJ since both offer quality shoes at different price points. AE first quality can be purchased for about $230 during the semi-sale whereas BB peals are around $450 with the 30% discount.

    And the BB C&J prices are up to $648. Ridiculous. Only reason I'm considering getting the perforated captoes during a 30% off sale is because I have gift cards.

    How much does C&J bench grade cost at their retail store or other places?

    Thank you for the info. I've been wanting to try C&J. Seems like getting the Peal version at 30% off may be a good way to get a first pair.

    Thanks for the responses, you guys are so knowlegable and wonderful. Would any of you be able to divuldge any info this pair of Peal & Co shoes from BB? I couldn't find it on the official website, so I am guessing it is an old model. Any info would be great, thank you!

    Those aren't Peal, they're Brooks English.

    I have no idea about this, can you give more info (although I guess we are digressing a bit off topic) in regards of what the maker, model, etc of the shoes are? Thank you.

    Probably Churches? I know Church's was one of the companies that made stuff under the "Brooks English" label, but it wouldn't surprise me to find out other companies did the same.

    They may not be a specific model that was ever sold as anything other than a Brooks English product, and they're almost certainly pre-internet, so I wouldn't be surprised if it's tough to dig up much information on them.

    HI all - Considering using a BB 40% off coupon on their Peal & Co. double monks, orig price $648.

    As I'm mainly an Alden man, was hoping someone with some good knowledge could tell me who makes these and if $388 for these would be a good value?

    Thanks so much, in advance.

    C&J and anything with the 40% off coupon is a pretty solid deal

    Interesting that the heel nail pattern is similar to C&J; however, the 87 last is definitely AS. Regardless, the sale price is good for either brands.

    Hi,

    I was hoping someone will help me out. I am interested in purchasing old stock but new Peal & Co Brooks Brothers Gibson brogues. They are very heavy duty with thick dainite rubber soles. I have never had or tried Peal & Co (or CJ or AS) shoes before, so I am not sure about sizing. This shoes are 8.5D, and in AE I usually wear 8.5C-8.5D (Park Ave - 8.5C, Byron - 8.5C, Dalton's 8.5D (with thick socks), MacNeil - 8.5 D (w/ thick socks)).

    How do these shoes run in terms of sizing? What would the equivalent size be in AE? How is the quality of Peal & Co in general?

    Thank you
