They are 990 (color 8)

Well said BeSpiff.  I am a huge advocate of the marketplace of ideas.  Be heard indeed, but that also means that ideas may be shot down, hopefully in our case with civility as we all do share a unique affinity.

 

Happy Mother's Day to all of us and ours...

Also, PSA:

Brooks Brothers is having a Corporate Discount sale day on May 22nd or 23rd (can't remember which for sure) - but the mailer I got today said there are no exclusions, so I'm assuming it'll work on cordo models.

They may take those shoes off the website at that time however.

$159 inc bags and trees
$149 with no bags and trees
8-10 weeks


Thanks for posting that. I'd normally forego the trees & bags but $10 seems very reasonable for a pair of shoe trees.

If that's the case, you may be able to get around it by making your selection early and keeping it in your shopping cart.

That's because they're already charging an unreasonable 150 bucks for the service. 8-10 weeks?

There are many quality cobblers that can handle Aldens, and will be more accommodating to the customer.

I like the natural CXL tassel and suede LHS on the BB site. Some other classic models as well of course. Curious to see how much discount applies.

To be honest I don't have a large frame of reference since all my shoes have been refurb at AE or B. Nelson but all of the ones from B. Nelson have been top notch and have always came back far quicker then there posted time and was willing to adjust them as I needed.
