white bucks

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Who makes and where can I get some decent but not exorbitant white bucks? Ben Silver has some C&J ones but this is probably overkill for a twice a year shoe.

You might take a look at the ones at Bennie's. Their sizing looks limited at present, though. I think J Crew and probably Brooks Bros. offer them, too.

I'll be strung up for this... but I have a pair of white bucks from Cole-Haan that I bought in about 1995 or 1996. They are quite nice IMO. They aren't the classic white buck design but are split-toe (and, I think, more shapely and elegant as well). I wear them about 3 times a summer, and only then when I think ahead to do so. I am sure I bought them on sale; probably at Filene's Basement.

Ralph Lauren has a classic white (actually ivory) buck that currently has a full retail of $145. I am sure these made-in-China bucks are not as nice as their C&J counterparts, but the pair that I have impress me as sturdy, well-made shoes (certainly for the money), which, given the infrequent wearings I and most fellows give our bucks, should serve me for the duration of my existence. They look about as good as any other classic bucks I've ever seen. Last time I was in Brooks (a month or so ago), they had some traditional white bucks for about $130. I didn't examine them closely for quality, however.

Got a pair from Chris a month or so ago. Great shoes for the price- should fit my needs perfectly. (Think mutation of American trad with an equally new seersucker suit)...

If you're looking for cheap, I got a pair of Bass for $39.99 on sale at Nordstrom a few years ago.  I realize that Bass are pretty cheap and uninteresting shoes to start with, but given the amount that I wear them, that was about all I was willing to shell out.  I wear them two or three times a year with my seersucker suit or my nantucket reds, and they've worked out fine for that.

Mine are by H.S. Trask I got them off of Sierra Trading Post several years ago for $35. I like them, and they've held up well.

Makes a great shoe IMO. Not fancy, but comfortable and durable. Didn't know they made white bucks.

I just checked their website. Looks like they don't make them anymore. (probably why they were on clearance at Sierra Trading Post.) So, I guess no more buffalo suede white bucks.
