Unless you know a proxy who live in Boston not three miles from the AE shop and can post you "used shoes" worth "£10". wink.gif

You are right they wont be so cheap after adding on the tax,about £30 ( ish ) and you will find cheaper Loakes but the AE will be better quality,if you want Loakes of similar quality they will be in the 1880 range and importing some AE will still be cheaper.

You should have let me know you were coming.

By the way, chaps, I'm STILL not getting any alerts. frown.gif

John Simons often has a limited range of AE. I happen to be wearing my only pair today - the Kenwood. I feel they are slightly higher quality than standard Loakes. Mine date from 2006 and still haven't been re-soled or heeled.

What size are you? I have AE shell cordovan Leeds for sale size US 8.5 (about a UK 8) gently used. I think there are pics on my blog under 'Rod's Flogs'. PM if interested!

They used to sell the AE Kenwood at 'The Master Cobbler' on Upper Street. I regret not buying the tan ones when I had a chance. Might be worth giving them a ring to see if they sell other AE models or can get them.

John Rushton also carries AE sometimes.

Duke, your pictures come up with that annoying little question-mark icon for me, except your 'derbies'. Are those the shoes you were referring to?

I'm UK 8.5

“We’ve restored the signature rolled collar.”

 

Apparently Brooks Brothers BD collars were not what they used to be, so they re-launched quality BDs with their traditional collars :  the 'Original Polo button down'. They seem very nice, exist in three different fits, but come with a price.

^ not a button down person myself Clouseau but I kind of prefer the flat as a pancake look of the obscure brand, in 1960s cellophane wrapping, deadstock shirts that @Inks goes for. Sero, Lion of Troy, Arrow, Sears - I even remember the names! All this collar roll/natural shoulder/rumpled Ivy thing I don't really care for.

Sorting out the collar roll can only be a good thing....but (imo) just as important is where the next button down from top is positioned, to low and the collar will 'gape' open when worn without a tie...that's unless you have the top button done up which I never do.

Looking at the pictures of the BB shirts I think that the button in question is to low, I also prefer an OCBD to have a chest pocket, at the end of the day though its all personal preference.

Most of my BDs have the next button from top to low down but I cant seem to find shirts with the button positioned higher.

SF is not letting me post pics the usual way MoM, stay tuned and I'll try again later.

In other news the FC poll is open over on CM. Any votes to lift me off the wooden spoon position will be most welcome!

I meant on Rod's Flogs, not here on SF. I can't see any of your 'flogs'.
