    I'm hoping items that are now 40% off will go to 50% off starting the 25th. If so, then with the additional 15% off, things will be at an attractive price for me.

    I thought I was on the Brooks list, but I haven't gotten the e-mail. Can someone paste it here?

    It's off the sale price.

    Thanks. Had a feeling but wanted confirmation.

    With the sale in mind, let's play This or This.

    Same price.

    I have those exact C&Js and they are perfect. Very comfortable also. They're my go-to shoe and after 3 years of solid wear, they're now my true workhorse.

    I would skip on the Sargents. Quality not as good, IMO (especially upper leather quality). I especially like the AS's triple stitching on the toe cap. Looks too much like Allen Edmonds. I prefer the punched cap and the swan's neck stitching on the C&J. The C&J is a classic round-toe last, like the EG 202 (but not as nice, as it's not EG!).

    FWIW I'm a UK 9.5E in C&J 337 and 341 lasts and a US 11D in this C&J for Peal shoe.

    I think it's going to get steeply discounted.

    I'm leaving my options open for "that" but I just don't know what that is yet.

    Thanks. The AS fits slightly better, with a little more room in the toebox and I do like the double sole it offers, but I agree that the C&J is a nicer looking shoe.

    I'm hoping items will be cheaper, and then have an additional 15% off. My wish list will grow if there are more reductions.

    I hope so as well. $366, less 15%, plus tax > buying C&J direct from pediwear w/ the pound under $1.50. The easy returns with Brooks Brothers are worth something. It's just that the current price less 15% is not really a deal w/ the strong dollar.

    Yes, and the last is too short on that shoe for my tastes. Looks too stumpy.
