    Would you happen to have the model/style name? Hoping they're current stock... [​IMG]

    I have a very similar, possibly identical, shoe that is by C&J for Gordon Rush. It also says 8580 317 inside. 317 is obviously the last, I assume 8580 might be the style? The other side says K 37113.

    Inside these it has the style name as well, which is 'Marlow', but the name could vary if they're made for other companies. This doesn't seem to be a current C&J style.

    Here are some pictures of the shoes which Cravate Noire was kind enough to photograph in process. No complaints on the fit and these are my second pair. Some of the finishing may be a bit "rustic" for some, but I think it gives the shoes a certain amount of character.

    Good intel guys, thanks! AGfS, yours appear brand spankin new; were they a purchased from N&L recently or did you get them from another source. i.e. the usual ebay UK resellers? (You can PM me if you prefer.)

    You are welcome. They are brand new. I picked them up on bay. These apprears to be made for the US market as they are in US size. The original sticker price is $400, so they must be from quite old stock.

    Thanks for the nice comments. The shoes I posted above are from Roberto Ugolini in Florence. If you look closely at Cravate Noire's original picture, you can see the shoe is fitted with a size 42 last, which is about right.
