I called once to ask who made their suits. They were ... not very forthcoming.

I emailed them about the shoes. We'll see.

Far more fun to speculate though than simply to ask.

The brogueing on the CT goes a little down the side and as you mentioned there are more eyelets. Interesting. And they are made in Northampton. Uhm, unfortunately that means that I WILL be buying one soon. I have two brown, one light chestnut and one black wholecut; no cherry yet Addendum: I wish they still sold this one; I have one in black which I like.
Elite Forum on Ebay has a couple pairs of the brown brogue boot you like

These have potential though:


That's the exact same thing I was thinking. Plus I have a credit from the penny loafers I ordered that were too big, and ended up returning. I won't be the first to buy them though.

I'd definitely follow up on that just to mess with them.

"Is there a reason you don't wish to divulge this kind of routine information to your clientele? Is it because you feel that the manufaturer's identity would reflect poorly on your company's reputation? You made no secret of the fact that Loake manufactured your shoes last season -- have you selected a more cost-effective but lower-quality alternative for this season? Is there someone else who might be forthcoming with this information or is everyone in your entire organisation complicit in this conspiracy to hide vital and relevant information from your customers? Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?"

I'm inclined to agree. I think that's a really obnoxious policy/response.

It's weird the way they basically say " None of your business! Now, if there's anything else we can help you with... ".

A customer-service person with any wit would have said, "We contract with highly regarded Northampton cordwainers who make our shoes to top-notch specifications in styles designed specifically for CT. Understandably, our partners prefer to remain anonymous when doing work that does not appear under their own label. But rest assured, these are FAB, etc., blah, blah."

I wonder if the sizing of the new season shoes will be like the old ones (1/2 size too big) or true-to-size.

Who wants to buy some first and find out?

Dunno, but I will be stopping by the retail store to have a look at them in person and find out what size fits. Then, I will be ready when they go on deep sale after christmas or there abouts.

The New York stores don't have them yet. The saleslady said hopefully this weekend or early next week, though she wasn't sure.
