try it, it does work
I have pretty much stopped asking the BB associates any questions about their shoes. Last time I was in there looking, the SA was just standing there watching me, so in an attempt to be conversational I asked about the process for having a pair resoled (which I already knew the answer to). I was holding a pair of Peal & Co. perforated cap toes which were made by Crockett & Jones based on the nail pattern in the heels. It became apparent that he didn't know that Peal & Co. is a defunct company that only exists as a name owned by Brooks Brothers. He kinda stuttered for a second and said he figured you could send them back to Peal, but he had no idea how to do that. I just smiled and said thanks.
Currently in AE i have:
Shell Burgundy Dalton, Brown Malvern, Tan Amok, Grey McTavish, Black Westchester, Black Hale, Black Park Ave,
Tan RL Singleton, Blue Neumok, Red Neumok, Navy Sueded Players, Brown Patriot, Brown Fifth Ave, Dark Brown Williams,
Tan RL Sanderson, Bourbon Neumora, Walnut Grain Park Ave, Chili Lasalle, Tan Elgin, Walnut McAllister, Walnut Strand
So definitely need more shell I think
