    All of the above. Up there with Clapps. When the company in Weymouth Massachusetts demised it was like 150 years old. The factory became a museum and offices rather than be demolished.

    http://www.weymouth.ma.us/photoview/view58.htm

    From Wiki

    Weymouth was heavily involved in the shoemaking industry from the first years of the 18th century right through to 1973, when the Stetson Shoe Company closed its doors. The building is currently being used for medical offices.[18]

    Weymouth is home to the house where Abigail Adams, wife of President John Adams and mother to President John Quincy Adams, was born

    Also in Massachusetts, was the home of Stacy Adams. They started making shoes in 1875, and continued to make quality shoes (with high end prices) until the 60's.

    Nice shoes, yes. Top shoes, no. I've handled maybe a half dozen Stacy Adams shoes from the 40's & 50's. They are just so-so in quality. They used thinner leather that often doesn't survive today. Construction was alright, but they were more lightweight thsn some of their brethren.

    cheers Monty this is so like the Dover- only it looks like one of those odd spade soles. can see the Dover's pedigree, a refinement of something building for a long long time

    They struck me as whole lotta shoe for the moola.

    Matter of fact. After an all afternoon stroll through all of the shoe stores on Jermyn St. I'd say CJ pretty much ruled teh benchgrade RTW herd.

    Congrats, I fully support that shoe, obviously.

    Now get ready for 150 PMs on how they fit.
