    Ah, thanks! Just looked and confirmed. That would also make sense with me being in Minnesota. :slayer:


    So I usually won't buy women's stuff. Too much of a headache and can't figure it out for nothin'. I decided to gamble on this though, just had a feeling a cashmere suit had to be something. Looks like my gamble paid off. Retail was probably as much or more than a Kiton cashmere suit.

    that's some nice shooting. funny how many old minor league/negro league/a-league-of-their-own clubs there were...

    in other news... just thrifted myself a very nice Acne nylon car coat just in time for the arrival of The Boy. nice design, decent build, overpriced at retail (but cheap for me!)

    Have those heels been redone or are those original?

    One way to tell if C&J shoes are UK or US sized is that no matter which market C&J make for, they stamp the UK size on the footbed, close to the toe. The convention is size/width, with the width being represented by the old english method of numbering, with 5 being medium width. See picture below (made for the US market and marked 12D on the side) indicating that these are UK 12 D, i.e narrow (E being a medium for C&J and many other english makers).

    No size stamp that I can see on the sole. They measure heel to toe 11.5" & 3 5/8" at the widest point. Is there a way to figure it out from that?

    The nails in the heel all appear to be brass if that helps with a maker

    Hard to say. Around here, when heels are replaced, they use either all rubber or all leather. Most places here won't re-heel in dovetail or like these.

    What is the deal with the heels on some of these high-end shoes? For example, this:

    Nail pattern can help tell you who the maker was
