    C&J on 337 last. Debate about whether truly handgrade or benchgrade + channeled soles.

    It's a nice shoe, I've got a pair (as does half the forum).

    I asked C&J and received email from them last January confirming what you wrote above and also claiming handgrade quality. The email said "The Polo Alton is a Hand Grade Wing Tip Derby on last 337".

    I enjoy mine immensely, so I now look hard for occasions to wear suede shoes. You probably know they're available on ebay right now for very good prices.
