    PSA: Brooks Brothers now has 3 C&J shoes on the 341 last in their Peal & Co line. See here.

    Question: I'm thinking about ordering the Courtenay. Does anyone have experience with the kind of creasing that occurs on these semi-punch cap toes? I've heard that wholecuts (don't have any) can crease in unsightly ways and am wondering if the same can happen here.

    Aren't those captoes on the 240 last?

    Look too sleek for 240.

    Thinking about bying the Coniston boot.

    Does anyone know if it can be 'caught' on sale from time to time?

    Lowest I've seen is the set price of 370 gbp with little or rather no fluctuation.

    I am struggling between the captoes and wingtips from BB. I'll be ordering some soon to get the 25% off. Are there any other C&J shoes worth considering that aren't listed here?

    See my post earlier on this page. They're on a better looking last but not 25% off on the website. Maybe Sleven can make it happen for you.

    The Northcote is a pretty nice-looking boot, and similar to the BB shell one, but obviously, not shell. Over at Pediwear or Bodileys, it can be had significantly cheaper. To be honest, I don't have much experience with C&J's cordovan, though; I've stuck to Alden mostly for that.

    I picked up some Alden Captoe's from J. Crew for 30% off so I will probably go with the wingtips for variety. Thanks for the info guys.
