Anyone here have experience with the Kenwoods? I don't want to start the whole Dominican Republic vs. USA-made controversy here once again (it got pretty heated a while back ago) but I ordered the equivalent Brooks version off the BB site, called "Tumbled Leather Popped Midsole Penny Loafers", and it turns out the shoes say they were made in the DR. I find this weird, since BB says they are made in the USA, and AE says the Kenwood is made in the USA as well. I certainly didn't pay the $348 original price tag for it, but if I did, charging that much for shoes made in DR seems a bit off (fully aware of the cheaper "Ae by..." line being made in DR)... have any of you seen this discrepancy before or seen this in your Kenwoods?
Thanks all! One day I'll attain enough knowledge and cajones to answer questions with the breadth and knowledge like y'all!
I agree. Charging that much is a bit off. I think I had read the review about those BB Kenwoods. Some in review points that out. They also have made in usa on their equivalent of the duke as well and its a DR shoe.
However for the sale price its probably not to bad. Would never pay the retail.
