I suppose it might have helped to include the link.facepalm.gif

These trou, which seem close to Incotex quality. Anyone recognize the tag? Cantarelli again (older)?

PRL strap loafers. Almost all internal info is worn off, and doesn't say where made. Here are the heels.

Don't think these are original heels.

Hmm. The soles still have "Polo" (and only Polo) on them, and haven't been replaced. Obviously doesn't rule out a re-heeling. But it's the only clue I have to go on, unfortunately.

The shoes arrived, so I've got some better pictures of the heels and interiors. Anyone have any ideas on maker and age?

Is this a trick question? Didn't Peal make its own shoes before being bought by Alden?

Not a shoe guy, but that was what I thought.

Peal has never been owned by Alden. When Peal and Co. went out of business in the '60s, the name was purchased by Brooks Brothers. BB has marketed a line of Peal shoes since then ( there is also thought that they were selling Peal shoes back as far as the '30s), made for them by EG, C&J, Sargent and others. These appear to be EG. I'm just not familiar with that nail pattern and I'm looking for others who might be.

Looks like EG from a handful of decades ago. It says "Made in England" so it was not the original P&Co (which was made in The US I believe). Look through old BB EG pics here and I think the inside markings will look similar.

Let's keep it straight: Peal & Co was originally an English bespoke shoemaker. They later made RTW shoes for Brooks Brothers. They went bankrupted in the early 1960s, and sold the right to use the name Peal & Co to Brooks Brothers. At the same time period Brooks Brothers had been using Edward Green to make Brooks English line. So after Peal & Co bankruptcy, Brooks Brothers then used Edward Green to make their Peal & Co labeled shoes also. In the early 80s, Brooks Brothers started cutting cost by moving the Brooks English line to Church's, and subsequently in the late 80s, Peal & Co line to Crockett & Jones. In the early 90s, they added Alfred Sargent to Peal & Co.

So back to the main question, these are from Edward Green.

The main difference between Edward Green Peal & Co and original Peal & Co is that the original one has Royal family stamps.

This is GREAT info! I don't know why I had it in my head that Alden had acquired the Peal name. I apologize for that mistake. I had a pair of shoes a while back that said "Made in England by Peal & Co" HEre are some pics. I'd assumed these were actually made by Peal, pre bankruptcy. Was I wrong?

Edit: It was the side stamp, "Peal ... London", that led me to believe these were not the standard post-bankruptcy shoes.
