FINALLY got around to cleaning up those vintage Alden for BB black shell cordovan cap toes 10 E from a week ago. Another member dibs-ed them so NOT AVAILABLE at this time.
^ I think that from the font used in the lower right hand picture, they are from before BB started to brand everything "Peal & Co." But that's pure speculation on my part.
what do you mean by that last bit? BB doesn't brand everything Peal & Co - not the Aldens, those are just tagged Brooks Brothers. FWIW the stamp and lettering style used on that particular pair is not very old.
