Thanks so much - yeah to me, I thought that the closed lacing, with it constructed under vamp meant balmoral - apparently I was wrong. So, OXFORD is actually the bigger group and then BALMORAL is a variant of it. Obviously in the states, we incorrectly refer to Bluchers/Derby's as Oxfords too.. which is confusing.
What are people's general thoughts on the Galosh Oxford/Balmoral - is it more dressy, etc than the now standard oxford look?
I definitely like them more. They look sleeker to me. Wish they made more balmoral shoes.
My Skyes which I had converted to Dainite have made it over the pond and are waiting for me at home
Too bad I'll be out of town until Wednesday...
Yeah, it looks appealing to my eye - might have to get a pair. Can't believe I don't even have a pair of black bals. Any other makers of them?
Yeah it's 337, really like the wider fit as it's perfect for me. A little surprised the 11Ds fit as normally I'd size 10.5 but got both and 11s were a lot better (US size). Shoe is nice, just a bit too sleek for my current uses as I don't need to dress up. Saddle wise no idea how to wear but had to get some russian reindeer and cordovan. Last is a bit funky, seems kinda wide but felt narrow so had to size up so fit's not fully there neither. What can I say, Bryan is a good salesman
My first England-made shoes, Edgware. 8 weeks wating, but it's worthy. Bought from Edward of Manchest with 20% off discount at January's sale.
Can anyone confirm these are C&J?
Anyone have these? If so, thoughts on sizing?
Nice find, I was told by an SA that Peal shoes are all C&J - unless that's changed, I'd say so.
Definitely not all C&J safe bet is those around 600 and above are. Or they may be AS
Cheaper ones are loake
You mean all made in England Pearl shoes are C&J I assume. Last time an SA was trying to convince me a pair of made in Italy shearling boots were C&J
that too, I thought only AS, didn't know loake as well
More recently Loake. Not sure if AS is making any current models again but they used to make a number of them many years ago.
Yes - sorry had to clarify.
Thanks for the feedback.
1. many current Peal models are made by C&J, but not all
2. AS at least used to produce shoes under the Peal name (I have a pair)
3. my original post was in reference to the specific model on the link, and I was merely curious if anyone either owned them or had handled them IRL and could confirm they were in fact made by C&J
Of course I called BB to see if I could get a straight answer but that resulted in a combination of frustration and laughter.
A great weekend to one and all.
