Akatsuki, Namor has a killer Ravello NST boot on the aberdeen for sale which is a great deal if you're a size 12

Chipshot, brooks bros has their next corporate sale on oct 18th. (IIRC the discount is either 20 or 25%)
They take all shell off the site when the sale starts, but the last time this sale came around I put a pair of unlined LHS in my cart the night before and they rang up with the discount when the sale went live the next day.

edit: just checked my receipt. discount last corp sale was 25% and saved me 149.50 on a pair of unlined shell LHS.
I actually didn't buy online, but screengrabbed the checkout screen showing the discount applied, and then showed the clerk at my local BB the pdf and got the discount in store.

Many thanks for this, the unlined version is perfect here in the hot desert.  is IIRC the code?  Any savings is welcomed with shell.  Yea I was a day late on the last sale and it did not reflect as the shell cordovan was pulled off the site, I called customer service with the "what up" and the gal said they pull all the shell for the sale.

you're very welcome,

IIRC = "If I Recall Correctly"

that said, IIRC, no code is needed you just need an active Brooks corp card and corresponding # to trigger the discount

That seems high to me. I got hit with about $67. And frankly most of that was erroneous since it was duty because the origin was marked incorrectly. Unfortunately, my experience suggests that UPS isn't going to care. They'll make you take it up with CBP directly, and that's a hassle.

I am usually an 11e in AE, so I suspect these would be too large

You can try seeing if CitiShoes has the ravello NST in your size. They are listed as "Brandy shell cordovan"

http://www.citishoes.com/pg7.htm

 

Also J. Gilbert has a color 8 NST boot on the Plaza, with commando sole. They also have the blucher too

http://www.alden-of-carmel.com/index.cfm/Shoes-Norwegian_Front_Boot_254.htm

 

If you have preference towards one last over another though this may be problematic.

Great looking boots.

I want to put in a plug for the incredibly thorough service I received yesterday at Alden DC.

Kathy spent quite a while with me figuring out my perfect sizes on a variety of lasts. Having purchased 3 pairs of Aldens, none of which ever fit "just right," I finally feel like I have my sizing figured out. I walked out with one pair in hand and another pair on special order. I cannot tell you what a great feeling it is to know that I've got the shoes that fit my feet well. For whatever reason, the Barrie last may not ever work perfectly on my feet, but I know that Plaza, Hampton, TruBalance do. And, I've found the most workable size in Barrie last. My widths and lengths vary a fair amount by last.

The downside of my trip? I now know my too-large Color 8 shells from BB aren't going to ever work for me.

If anyone is interested in Alden for BB Color 8 wingtips that were worn three times, with metal toe taps, PM me. Size 10D. They'll be posted for sale eventually. Bought them when I *thought* I knew my size a year ago, immediately invested in the sunken metal toe plates (installed at Sky Valet Shoes on Wisconsin Ave in DC), and then figured out they were just too big.

You might give the Nettleton Shop a call. I believe they have a CXL chukka (maybe not enough boot for what you want...?) and one other shoe both on double waterloc.

+1 I was going to recommend this boot for chipshot as well. Can't go wrong with this or any TSM shell wingtip boot... can always put a topy on a double leather sole also.

Ordered a pair of captoe boots with commando soles in the Grant last, Color 8. They'll take a few months, but they look fantastic.
