And the answer was??
I think that model is AS, if I recall correctly from some previous inquiries. Usually the sole is the best indicator of maker...
Expensive enough to be C&J.
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 only worn my Islay 2 times becuase their color isn't very attractive...
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.
Here's my newly acquired Tavistock:
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
without a doubt my favourite C&J model.
