    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    3 things:
    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.
