    There are a number of threads related to the various Alfred Sargent ranges. I hope this thread will allow for more general AS discussions, pics, questions, etc. If this is redundant please let me know. :) For starters, one of the classics: [​IMG] Brooks Brothers Peal & Co. (106 last)

    MTO Ramsey in caramel suede, with lasted trees. I'm particularly impressed with the attention to detail (stitching, leather clicking) and the fact that the shoe's got a bit of a bevelled waist.

    MTO Montague, caramel suede. These boots have forward slanted heel and a layer of rubber between welt and sole, for extra comfort.

    They were a MTO batch timed for the summer months. I took delivery of them in March.

    Suede, in all colors, has that je nais se quoi quality that I particular enjoy in shoes.

    S Exclusive, Bannister.

    The crepe sole is really really comfortable to walk.

    Very nice.

    Is the Gibson from the Exclusive or Handgrade line?
