    I just bought my first pair of Peal and Co, I have to say I think I'm love with my shoes. How can I determine that they are really C&J and what last they are on?

    http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Peal-...html?dwvar_049H_Color=BLCK&contentpos=3&cgid=

    I'm just starting to upgrade from sub-$200 shoes; I picked up a pair of AE Fifth Avenues and threw them back in the shipping box when they arrived because of how hideous they were. If purchasing in the US, is pediwear still the best place to shop or is it better to phone in to the NYC store and have them ship it from there?

    I think that model is AS, if I recall correctly from some previous inquiries. Usually the sole is the best indicator of maker...

    Double nails at heel indicate AS

    I think the whole Made in England aspect of Peal & Co is what's driving the prices up. At 40% off I don't find it that bad of a price as a intro to English made shoes though.

    You may be right on the AS. I did some more digging and on the inside it was stamped with '87' which seems to be AS' 87 last. That seems to be a very hard last to find here in the States. If there was a comparable last in the C&J line, what would that be?

    Not the exact toe shape but I would say the 341 would have a close feel/fit... Sort of.

    I took delivery of my C&J Skye 2 about 11 months ago, and I think I've worn them about 45 times since. I've done nothing but brush them until now, and I decided to apply a bit of reno to them today.
    Not much of a difference to be seen in the photos (crappy iPhone pictures), but they look a bit nicer now. At this rate, these boots will last me 20 years, the soles look pristine.

    Lovely. I could be wrong, but I thought that C&J had (foolishly, in my opinion) discontinued the Tavistock a couple of years ago. How did you manage to find a pair?

    Just my luck. It was available during the summer sale at their Jeremy St store. I snatched it up immediately :)

    I love me some austerity and that's a very versatile color. Nice pickup.

    I love my Somervilles; I wish I could find a dark brown/suede combo
