Brooks Brothers shoes - Page 2

post #16 of 21
www.theshoemart.com I don't remember who I spoke with last month, but he pretty much offered 25 percent off any Alden shoes.

That is a great price, I would definitely jump on that, I shop a lot of the competition quite often, and most will only offer $25 off, maybe he mis-spoke himself.

Or you can buy them from me and save 15% off retail.
You carry Alden?

I can get them, no problem, I just do not list them on the site, if I did people would come in the store looking for them, and then be really pissed when we did not have them in the store.....but I can get them pretty quickly, generally within 2 weeks.

Thank you for your guidance. How do these Alden BB shoes compare to the current day Peal (C&J) version of the lace up cap toe bal. I have worn both and they seem comparable in quality and comfort. The Peal C&J's retail for around $368; the Aldens, $315. Not sure it is worth the extra money.
BB still sells the Alden-made shoes in addition to Peal shoes made by both Alfred Sargent and C&J. The Peal BB shoes and the Alden BB shoes both have the same price ($378), and both of them are overpriced at that level. I'd probably prefer the Peal shoes because they have channelled soles and a more elegant last, and it looks like more effort was taken finishing the details of the Peal shoes. I never worn the Peal shoes, so I can't comment on fit, comfort, or durability; but based just on what I have observed, it seems like the Peal shoes are marginally better.

Also -- as was mentioned on another thread -- the Brooks Alden (on the tassle loafer model at least) has a slightly diff. styling on heel. I've a pair of the Peal cap-toe balmorals (not sure the particular maker) -- had them for over 15 years I guess, and they're one of my favorite pairs of shoes.
