..so i picked up the Brooks Brothers suede boots - couldn't resist based on the semi-annual sale plus 15%.  Not sure i'll keep them though as i'm not sure about the crepe sole just yet.  I did see on this thread a few pages back that people were saying these were on the trubalance last.  The box they came in says 379x on it.  When i try them on they are definitely not nearly as wide in the toe box as my Indy's.  I'd even say they are slight more narrow than a similar sized barrie.  Just a heads up for those that are curious about this shoe given the sale...

I'm going to need some details please. Like alcibiades mentioned, bootmaker edition would indicate tsm, but the pictures made me think madison's whiskey sw boots had landed 6 months early.

 

@MrDV These are TSM Ravello. I didn't realize I would incite such excitement with my pics!

That's interesting given that Alden and BB apparently indicated to people that they were on Trubalance.  Did you buy 1/2 down or TTS?  If you are right, I might regret passing these over.

 

FWIW, and I know this topic comes up every so often and I'm mostly repeating the same -- the crepe sole is really comfortable and I think it looks good on that model.  Compared to commando sole, the crepe may not feel more comfortable at first, but if you are on your feet for hours, you will start to notice the difference.

Ravello for a Monday back in the office.

What about the fit in the heel? Are they more narrow than Barrie? Also, do you know if the 15% is still available? Thanks!!
post #99339 of 122416

the heel feels just like my barrie shoes.. not as wide as my indy's.  I notice this pretty quickly because my indy's are a little loose in just about every measure.

newbie  its  good looking boot, I enjoy the crepe sole, and was really close to picking them up but the color of the suede seemed pretty close to another pair of Chukka's i have so i paused and missed the extra 15%.  Not sure how accurate BB picture are to the real color?  did you find the true to color of the picture?

 

was size did you get compared to the Indy's you have?  Interesting observation compared to Barrie , I need to compare my TB, Barrie and 379x all at the same time to see how they all compare

I disagree, totally. If you have a low instep, tongue pads are a must sometimes, and do not degrade the wearing experience.

I actually respectfully agree with Roguls. Without a tongue pad, I wouldn't be able to wear the LHS. I do think one should exhaust all other options before using the tongue pad.

Hey newbie, can you post some pics of the boot? I think we would love to see some comparison shots of the last and maybe see what the color is like.
