I second the motion - anything that we can use online to determine the make? Or is the only way to use the slugs in the heels as jcusey suggests - necessitating an in-person visit. As I said before, I am fairly sure that almost all of the shoes that I have seen in person at BB are Sargents. In addition to the Highgrove that I cited before, there is the case of Dr. Bresch on AskAndy, who identified a pair of boots he purchased at BB as the Sargent Quorn model after visiting this site. Finally, you can go to specific sale shoes and make the eyeball comparison yourself. Look at the Peal & Co. Square-Cap Blucher Shoe on BB (can't link to it b/c of frames) and compare it to the Bloomsbury at Bodiley's
(useful b/c it gives the toe shape) which is the same as the Wigmore at Pediwear
(useful b/c it is a prettier picture of the black version. With a little sleuthing I think that most shoes can be matched up to Sargents. The only challenge I found in identifying a Sargent look-alike for the BB web sale shoes was with the monkstraps, which do resemble either a C&J Compton or the discontinued Grosvenor. I am extremely skeptical that anyone other than Sargent makes the current-model Peal's. That said, if you can find a dusty old pair at the Boston or NYC shop it could be C&J or even Green, from what I've heard. What's on the website, though, is likely to be current-issue Sargent stuff. As always, I am looking to be disabused - I'd love to get some C&Js for $268 bucks, but I am loath to pay a markup for Sargent when I can easily get them on the cheap from Bodiley's with shipping included.
