    For anyone interested, this appears to be a shell cordovan chukka boot by Polo (Crockett and Jones???). Can someone confirm the maker? http://www.bluefly.com/pages....8924279 Use GIFTBLUE22 (all caps) and get an additional 15 percent off. That's $296.65 plus $7.95 shipping. I would like some feedback on the maker if anyone has an idea. I know C&J works with shell cordovan, but do other makers as well?

    That is most certainly a C&J boot.  Top quality for that price.  I think I may have to pick up a pair.  Thanks for the link. But. that code is not working. Any new bluefly codes out there?

    GIFTBLUE22 in all capital letters should work. Minutes ago I processed an order with that code and it gave me 15 percent off.

    Thanks, it could be that I used it already. It said something like "welcome kit discount" Could be I spend too much money.

    Appears to be the Chepstow in the 325 last. Does anyone know if this is a regular or narrow fitting?

    Question is, is this really shell cordovan? Polo.com tends to list their cordovan shoes at the $595 price that Bluefly lists.

    They aren't EG and Polo only uses EG and C&J for their English shoes.

    They are cordovan (the texture of the leather is very distinctive in the close-up pics,) and they do appear to be the Chepstow. The C&J catalogue lists them as an E fitting.
