    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.

    Beautiful job. Was that a direct job by C&J?

    The top pair was done by C&J. Had them done a couple of months ago and the sole went spongey after <10 outings so they did another complete recraft free of charge.
    The dainite sole was done by a local cobbler. £125 vs £50 :decisions:

    very nice. i wish the states had more cobblers who could do resoles, toe plates, and provide some of the services you could expect from the factory (repairs, etc).

    the description has always said "brown" and it's always been wrong :)

    I bought them nearly 2 years ago. the color is pretty similar to AE burgundy shell, not the Alden version of #8. it's certainly not the brown on the Lindrick / Marlow line.

    the wonders of gmail. conversation from January 2011:

    Me to C&J:

    "Hello,
    I am interested in the Peal & Co.[​IMG] Cordovan Boot you have made for Brooks Brothers. But, I am unclear on what color this boot is. Is it Dark Brown or Burgundy?

    This is the boot:

    http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCat...lor=BROWN&sort_by=&sectioncolor=&sectionsize="

    C&J to me:

    "the Peel boots are made in a Burgundy shell cordovan."

    Nice soles. Is this the Albany on the 337?

    C&J Ghillies for Barneys

    These are a well thought out shoe with a real pizzazz... from the red Dainite soles with interlay red dainite in the heels (nice saving of AUD40 for Topys)... to the sexy ghillie treatment... the unusual beige colour and the detailing like the scotch thistle punching to the counter. For USD259 on sale "I done good" as they say Down Under.

    Very nice. Did they originally have that much shape to the waist?

    Thanks for the post. Interesting.

    I suspected they might be burgundy, but thought the website must have it right ....

    I have also seen it the other way where others refer to dark brown as burgundy. Go figure ....

    They arrived today. The box actually says "Burgundy Cordovan." But yours and mine are apparently different in color (and I have burgundy shell from AE and Color 8 shell from Alden). Mine are basically indistinguishable from Alden's Color 8, which I love and have much of. :slayer:

    I apologize in advance if I am posting in the wrong place, but I am looking for sizing advice on the Hallam (348 last).

    The best-fitting shoes I have are size 7UK Inca last Carminas, I am size 7.5EE in AE 5 last, and 7.5E Alden Barrie.

    From what I have gathered in all the sizing threads, it seems like 7F or 6.5F would be my size for CJ 348 last. Am I right? Should I go for 7F or 6.5F?

    the BB peal boot is lighter. Makes since because Alden colors their burgundy to give it the dark purple color
