    In another post, a new forum member referenced a website. In looking through it, the following shoe trees are shown: http://bexley.com/frame_embauchoir_e.html Cost for 2 pairs would be about $45 each, which includes shipping. Is that a good deal for this type of shoe tree? Shoot, basic Alden shoe trees would be $68 for two pairs, including shippping.

    Brooks Brothers currently has their shoes trees on sale for $18 a piece. They appear very similar to the ones you just posted, albeit in an unvarnished cedar. You might want to take a gander at their website. Additionally, I think you can get $10 off for registering on their website.

    But you provided the link, ImageWis. I'm going to go pick some up at the store today if they have them. I really need a pair or two, cause the pair I have (made by Hanover, and stolen from Dad's closet) do not have the full heel design.

    I already ordered 2 more pairs (to add to the other 10 pairs I already have, but I am expecting to purchase some shoes soon [​IMG]), plus some slim-fit polo shirts, and should receive them tomorrow via FedEx home delivery. The really nice thing about the shoetrees is that the heel is nicely rounded, unlike many other shoetrees (like the ones Nordstrom sells), which have pointed heels, which will over time ruin the shape of the shoe. Jon.

    FYI...

    Bexley has replenished their supply of shoe trees. They are, by far, the best value I've been able to find. I've now ordered 32 pairs.

    Here's the link:

    Hold on, Homestyle. You order 32 pairs of Bexley trees for your Lobbs and Greens? That's just letting the team down! What about some nice lasted EG trees?

    Wow. It must be almost a religious experiencwe, putting 32 shoe trees in all those [​IMG]

    Their shoes trees do look very nice; did you get charged duties when you received them last, Andrew?

    If I'm not mistaken, both the BB and Nordstrom shoe trees appear to be the Woodlore Combination Shoe Tree?

    Haven't seen the BB ones in person though.

    They are great trees and I would use them on EG or JL without hesitation. They are delivered via TNT Delivery Service and I have never been charged duty of any kind.
