    Dear Experts,

    I am on a mission to find a better fitting last for my feet, and would really appreciate your recommendation. My feet have the following characteristics:

    1. Wide Forefoot
    2. Narrow Heel
    3. High volume midsection: low arch + high instep.

    Please refer to the photo for illustration. My Brannock measurement is 7.5 E (Length: 9.8 in or 25 cm / Width: 4 in or 10.2cm)

    In general, I have to pick my poison between tight mid/fore section or heel slippage, and I've typically gone with the latter. For my next pair, I would like to once explore RTW lasts that could better accommodate the aforementioned features of my feet.

    I sincerely appreciate your input. Thanks in advance!

    In this case no. It was at the sink washing my hands.

    No, you can tell by the nail pattern on (Grenson, perhaps, but not C&J).

    I believe (but don't hold me to it) that these are the C&J ones;

    http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Peal-...ar_MH00160_Color=BLCK&contentpos=20&cgid=0494

    I actually just picked up a pair in brown using the $200 off $500 code (added a tin of shoe polish to get above $500).

    Tough to say without seeing a pic of the sole and nail pattern (and even then wouldn't be 100% sure). If you're in NYC, you could stop by the store and check them out in person to see.

    The V shape elastic is similar to C&J's Chelsea 8, but the PS one looks shorter than Chelsea 8. The pricing rules out G&G and EG, so maybe it's Grenson? Can't really tell sorry.

    I used to think that the single row of nails = C&J and double row of nails = Alfred Sargent, but I purchased the below

    http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Peal-...es/MH00404_____DKBR_10___D___,default,pd.html

    which I thought was C&J, but it says AS 87D on the shoe which leads me to believe it's Alfred Sargent on the 87 last. Really confusing.

    So my curiosity (and boredom) got the best of me so I popped into the Brooks Brothers store to investigate the Peal & Co. shoes. I can't speak to the sale stuff on the site as there were none in store, but it does seem that C&J shoes have the shorter, blockier stamp on the sole as well as "Goodyear Welted" under "Made in England". The non-C&J shoes were stamped with the elongated "Peal & Co" and did not have "Goodyear Welted" on the sole. Easier way to determine going forward is that the C&J shoes appear to now have a base retail price of $695 and the non-C&J ones at $645.

    With too much time on my hands, I popped into Paul Stuart to check out the aforementioned Chelsea boots. The nail pattern on the sole doesn't seem to match C&J, but I don't know how reliable that is. The inner-lining didn't have any size or last markings either, so couldn't confirm that way. If I had to guess I would bet that they aren't C&J, but that's just my guess.

    It could be Cheaney actually. I've noticed some recent PS by Cheaney shoes.

    guess that would put it at Cheaney imperial level then (price wise)?

    What's the name of those C&J boots?

    Those are AMAZING!

    Suede Coniston's?

    Thanks. Those are actually C&J for Peal & Co. (Brooks Brothers). Don't think it's the same last as the Consiton, although I could be wrong. Others here who know far more than me could probably tell you in a heartbeat.
