    Thanks for the info. That was my suspicion, but it's been a minute since I've been studying heel patterns.

    Decided to go with some G&G loafers instead for the same price, though in a bit more plain style.

    I grabbed a few ties from the Gatsby collection. Very nice overall although Brooks' ties do not have the best construction. They cannot compare to the Zegna, Brioni and Canali's I have that virtually tie themselves. Anyway, anyone pick up on Brooks Brother's new "Artisan" line? I was in their Washington DC store yesterday and noticed some new sport coats, shirts and sweaters. Very nice brown wool/silk sport coat made in Italy with leather behind the collar and a price point of $1100, same as the full retail 1818 suits. Just curious to know if anyone can tell me where they are made or can comment on the quality?

    Of note, their website does not list the "artisan" that is on the label. They are only cut in regular sizes and do not follow the usual naming conventions, no Fitzgerald, Madison, etc.

    Okay so I guess these are not called Artisan but Brooks Brothers Natural Construction. Nice stuff overall.

    If anyone wants to sell anything from the collection I'm buying, really looking for the bow ties, specifically the one Gatsby wears with his tuxedo, but I will buy pretty much anything if the price is right!
