I've wondered the same about why certain companies are able to charge less than others for cordovan. In terms of Horween's cordovan grades, there isn't much (if any) variation between what a RTW GYW company uses and what a Bespoke maker uses. I believe only Alden (also AE but not as well versed in their prices) offers a more inexpensive option on cordovan footwear than CJ.On the matter of C&J Shell Cordovan footwear, one thing I love about this range is how light weight they are when compared with other high end makes. I don't know how C&J achieve this, since they use the same Horween shells as other makers, but it is something I like very much.
