I'm getting worried about my 9.5E preordered Color 8 tankers on the Barrie last - anyone else have barrie last tankers? How did they fit compared to your other barrie shoes?

Does anyone know if brooks brothers will run another sale anytime soon? I'm ready to pull the trigger on the #8 shell ptb (alden) that they offer. Would prefer to get them at a discount if possible. I looked online and saw $10 off order but that was it.
Thanks

I've used it to purchase BB Alden shells - so yes.

  • Unfortunately the company i work for is too small (less than 50 employees), so i cant apply for the corporate membership.

It's 15%, right?

Correct, and it can't be used with any other type of promotion, but that doens't matter for Aldens anyway.

Aldens were 30% off with corporate last month

My first Alden purchase (a little over a year ago) was the Alden shell Color 8 Chukka.  While I love them, I find that the eyelets are not enough to keep my foot firmly fastened within the shoe.  That has not stopped me from wearing them weekly, but next time I will go for a six eyelet chukka.  If I had to do it over again, I would have definitely gone with the No 8 PTB.

Good luck and enjoy your visit to NYC.

2 eyelet cigar chukkas were my second purchase. I got epaulet's Brixtons in 8.5D and they fit very well, so I got the same size in the chukkas (both barrie) but they're much looser. I can't return them now, though. Would it be crazy to try to have someone put in an extra eyelet or two for additional support around the heel? Has anyone tried that?

Here are today's arrivals. Both on the grant last. I have (and love) the split toe in #8 already. Since I have trouble finding loafers that fit well, I ordered it in black shell as well. The #8 shoe is the identical shoe as the split toe, save for the split toe stitching.

Now that I see the black shell ones up close, I am on the fence. Was just thinking that if I am doing a loafer in black shell, I may as well do a tassel loafer or something a little dressier. Thoughts?

The #8s minus the split toe seem a bit dressier than my #8s with it. So, I think I can justify keeping them for sure. The black ones I am hemming and hawing about though.

I like them both and, my suggestion, if you can afford to keep both, I would. You are unlikely to wear the black loafer as often as the color 8, but you are likely to find it more versatile than you assume today.
