I actually think the boots linked to by the OP look fairly decent. In fact I like them better than the Pradas, although the Jill Sanders look best to me out of the four (they look even a bit R.M. Williams-ish). I think for the style that the OP seems to be going for, though, Varvatos would be a good option. Virtually all his boots have some sort of distressed finish, although I don't seem to recall brogueing on any of them. The price point is similar to Bally but...
Watch out, though - Scoop doesn't allow returns on "Final Sale" items. I got burned on that one once.
He really gives short shrift to shoes (say that 3 times fast)...I guess because footwear isn't part of his franchise? As for the other stuff, I agree it's a mix of silliness and truisms.

It seems that RLPL has changed tiemakers multiples times. I understand the English made ones were T&A, and the Italian ones are Altea. However, I came across a "Made in the USA" RLPL tie and was wondering who might have made that.

Are not many if not most of the Japanese one-wash jeans also unsanforized? My understanding was that they are made from the same ubiquitous unsanforized raw denim, which is washed once to minimize further shrinkage.
