I recently spotted these boots at Brooks Brothers, and there doesn't seem to be anything online about them so I thought I would start a new thread to gather opinions. I saw these for the first time through the window at a brick and mortar store, and I honestly thought I was most likely looking at a Peal & Co. boot (made by Crockett & Jones, or Alfred Sargent). I assumed the boots were probably in the range of $600.00. I went inside and picked them up to find that they are goodyear-welted, good looking leather, excellent stitching, and have a rubber sole that looks the same as a Dainite sole. Inside they have what looks like a nice natural leather insole with a cushioned heel sock lining just like a Peal & Co. shoe... Only then did I spot the "Made in Mexico" stamp under the tongue! They were not priced, so after asking the sales person, I was told that they are $248.00. I went home and looked them up online to see if I could find more information, and I see in the pictures online that they are stamped with the "346" on the sock liner, so apparently they are a part of their outlet line of shoes. This helps explain the lower cost, but the quality to price ratio still seems like one of the best I have ever seen. I should note that the pair I picked up in the store was NOT at an outlet, and they were NOT marked on the sock liner with the "346" logo. Below are pictures, and a link to them online. Hoping for some opinions!
