    Is it still Grenson?

    Crockett & Jones?

    i think its a mix...perhaps the Paul Stuart English made ones are C&J, and the Stuart's Choice, Grenson One. Certainly, the split toe apron boots currently on the sale section are C&J. A bargain at $220 if you use the 15% off coupon when registering for the Paul Stuart website bundled with the sale....

    The 15% discount only works with regularly priced merchandise.

    Crockett & Jones has made them in the past but I'm not sure now.

    According to what I have heard from the staff at the New York store, there is a new creative director for shoes, under whose orders the current renovation sale is taking place, selling off stock from suppliers with whom Stuart's is not planning on doing business in the future, and/or just clearing the decks.

    Judging from what I've seen of the new stock of shoes, I would say that much of it is re-branded Crockett & Jones, insofar as their English-sourced shoes are concerned.

    I will say that there were selections of styles that never made it to the website that were a part of the sale, giving those of us with access to the brick-and-mortar store some advantage over e-tail consumers.

    I wonder who they will go with for their Stuart's Choice or limited line, or even if they will continue with those lines.

    Any guesses as to who makes the ones above?

    Does the fact that they "fit true to US size" give anything away?

    Shoes, such as Paul Stuart's, are US sized regardless of the country of origin.

    Of course, there are always issues with a particular last and how that fits someone's foot so as always, there is. I substitute for trying the shoes on in person.

    "Fits true to US size" usually is a phrase Stuart's uses for the Italian or Spanish-made shoes (the Spanish-made shoes, at least in past seasons, are made by Magnanni, and, for me at least, run about 1/2 size large - for me, a US 9.5, I take a EU 42, not EU 42.5 in them). Whether the sizings on the English-made shoes will be adjusted to conform to US standards, or whether the advice to size down one full size when ordering, remains to be seen.

    As for the makers of the shoes shown so far in this thread, I've no firm guess as to maker.

    actually, some of the shoes are still in UK size......on the PS website it identifies which can be considered to be sized in US and which in UK. The apron boots are identical to BB Black Fleece boots from a couple of seasons ago which were made by C&J....i think most of the PS ones are C&J, the Stuarts choice Grenson..although as Upr Crust mentioned somewhere, G&G make for PS too...i dont think that they made it to the website sale though
