    Anybody knows how a 363 last compares in length to a 358? Is it the same length, or shorter? Looks shorter to me, but by how much?!
    Thanks.

    What grades of each are you comparing- handgrade or benchgrade C&J and vice-versa for Sargent.

    My ranking would be

    C&J Benchgrade
    AS Exclusive
    C&J Handgrade

    Although frankly I prefer the leather on the AS Exclusives to that of the C&J handgrade.

    I've got a pair each of the C&J bench and handgrades and am looking forward to an AS Exclusive on a handgrade last MTO. Glad to hear the endorsement of the leather.

    I think so too, looks like the 337 or 341 last.

    I'm talking C&J Handgrade and AS Exclusive; I will post some pics later.
    I'm not saying AS Excl is bad, just it looks flimsier to me.
    For the AS Handgrade/MTO, I was quoted £669 (ex VAT) which translates to US$1065 ex works; are they worth that much?! [​IMG]

    Guys, I want to expanding my collection of black shoes because I am forbidden from wearing brown for work. I currently rotate between a pair of capped oxford and an adelaide. I am thinking of getting the black Aintree 2 which is a plain three eyelet derby. or a black Clifford (a full brogue). Or the only other option are monks and I am not sure, but I would prefer laces I think. Does anyone have either of these shoes, or any other suggestions for more unusual black shoes? Thanks

    I recently added the Chalfont monk wingtip in black calf to my collection. I like it.
