Tipping it down here in blighty
Does anyone have some real world shots of the dark brown cordovan Bradford? I am looking for a brown straight tip blucher. Thanks!

Great combo all around. Well done.
I'm looking at purchasing a pair of Peal perforated cap toes in burgundy. http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Peal-Co.-Medium-Perforated-Captoes/MH00234_____DKRD_09H__D___,default,pd.html
I believe they are C&J. Can anyone confirm? If so, I wear an 8.5E UK size in the 348 last and whatever last the Islay is on. Does anyone know how to translate this to Peal US sizing?
All sources seem to say 8.5 converts to 9US, but I typically wear a 9.5, so I'm not sure what to make of it.
I don't know where you heard 8.5 UK is 9 US, but for pretty much all English makers barring EG and GG, an 8.5E UK is a 9.5D US.
Peal sizing is your normal US.
@sevenfoldtieguy thanks man, much appreciated
Off racing with family today, looking forward to it
How is the quality of c&j belts?
Any Boxing Day sales on C&Js?
I believe the shoes are by C&J on the 341 last. As far as sizing goes, you are going to have to figure that out on your own. My experience is that the Peal & Co. 11.5UK is marked 12US.
I thought this was last dependent.
Xpost from Manhattan Sales Alert Thread: Popped by C&J NY on way back from an errand and they are selling subs in the $400 - $700 range. Nothing of interest for me at that price point. Some were benchgrade and some were handgrade. You can probably call the store to find out if they have anything in a style you are looking for in your size.
EDIT: Forgot to note that these sal shoes were marked "subs." Not sure if this was the case for all shoes, but it was for the ones that I picked up.
