Congrats! Will this store have its own web presence where we can view upcoming makeups and preorders, or will they be linked to your site, like B+M?

Congrats! Looks great. Would love to see the list of makeups that are being offered beyond whatever the stock selection is!

I agree completely...I just have to keep telling myself there are things I don't like to save from going broke.

Thank you!  

 

BROGUE does have a website: http://www.goldenbrogue.com/ as well as an Instagram account: https://www.instagram.com/broguemenlopark/

 

They will likely be featured on the AOC website as well.

Thank you. Probably the BROGUE Instagram account is the best way to stay informed at this time. https://www.instagram.com/broguemenlopark/ 

 

Or you could contact Mack directly info@goldenbrogue.com

Great read. I shared it with some friends who inquire about my shoe enthusiasm.

7A is the date code. January 2007, 1997, 1987, etc

The width should be written below or near the size - it will be written as a fraction, e.g. B/D for D width, A/C for C width.

Also, the model number is not listed there, which it should be. Can you provide a photo of the codes?

Quick sanity check on these shell cordovan bluchers. I noticed this streak on the side—is that a defect or normal for Aldens?

 

Here's a few different photos from different angles:
