Oh darn, I was really digging this makeup. Oh well, looks like I'll be going after the Unlined Flex Penny Loafer in brown chromexcel.

#8 Indy (TB last)

These are all standard for JGilbert and sounds like B&M will be the same. With Yenni switching over it sounds like I'm on two lists for the #8 NST. Guess we'll see who gets here first. The #8 Indy on Plaza was the one I hadn't heard about. I was waiting for Fransboone to restock but they raised their shell prices so its probably close to what us retailers price out now. Depending on the euro of course.

Here's theirs though. Probably similar other than welt and edge.

JGilbert doesn't post prices on their website for the Plaza lasted boots. What do they run?

Sorry to be that guy answering his own question, but I wanted to credit Alden and maybe others would find this useful.

I emailed Alden, general@aldenshoe.com,  that above picture as well as a picture of the model number 23276 on the lining.  In one business day, they emailed back and told me that this Alden for Brooks Brothers model is on the Grant last.

Very dapper!  If you don't mind me asking, what belt did you pair with these?  Totally matched or within the general color scheme?  I tend to do the latter.

I have heard customer service at Alden is not as good as AE...but my experience with Alden CS was outstanding.

Wasn't he referring to the quality control of Alden? Can anyone speak to this?

Probably low to mid 700s I'd imagine. I don't think there's much deviation or a high markup for theirs. Not sure if they've done the price increase or not though.

hmmm...not sure...I can assure you though that Alden has less flawed shoes hitting the market than AE...I have a ton of AE and I think 10 pairs of Alden.....like all shoes you want to inspect them when you get them...

I would echo others here and say spend 2 minutes on them, it will be so much quicker and easier than exchanging.

@Kahuna75

Yes, but I'm not just asking about one person's experience, I'm asking about the collective. Above is the original post I'm referring to.

This.....all day long. I thought Alden had the occasional QC issue (these are hand made shoes) but after dipping my toe into the AE well a couple of times over the holidays, there is simply no comparison. The level of flaws on my best AE's is far worse than anything I've ever experienced with Alden.

Good to know. The BB Black Fleece line had some pretty interesting make-ups. Unfortunately, I don't think they make anything for Black Fleece anymore.

I was just charged $785 for the PT boots from JGilbert.

It looks like we're closing in on the $800 mark for domestic shell make-ups.
