    absolutely C&J have incredible variation in lasts, and from bitter experience I'd never assume that because one fits another will also.

    I think they look better in real life than the photo! They're a deeper red-brown than some of the previous versions that I've seen.

    Can someone share some buying and shipping experience with US or Canada when ordering from Robert Old?

    thanks

    I live in Canada, and I've ordered two pairs of C&Js from Robert Old. The first was a pair of Pembrokes, the second a pair of brown Audleys. They didn't have any Audleys on hand, so they had to order a pair from the C&J warehouse, but they were more than helpful in acquiring a pair for me and delivery was a) free and b) really, really fast. Like 4-5 days. And I didn't pay a dime in duties/taxes/etc (could've just been lucky with that). I highly recommended Robert Old.

    So I just got these:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/23077251849...NX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649#ht_500wt_1287

    Looks like a C&J Clifford apart from the sole. The brogueing is practically identical apart from the medallion. However, the writing inside does not seem to contain any reference to the "337". I haven't been able to get home yet to compare them to my other 337 shoes - but the look is almost identical. Would anyone be able to shed some light on this?

    This is what is written on the inside: "42050026 R504587/003 10."

    Made by AS, perhaps?

    Seen shoes with this nail pattern in the BB store in Madison. Interestingly, the nail pattern is similar to my EGs... Overall BB Peal shoes for $200 is not bad.

    Good price for a shoe that was needed - a more dressy wingtip. The nail pattern and heel does not line up with Peal by C&J - but the brogueing is so similar:

    Also, the brogueing is very different from AS offerings.
