    Hello All.

    I am considering picking up the following shoes in Walnut tomorrow.http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Perfo...d.html?dwvar_MH00024_Color=MDBR&contentpos=23 Can anyone speak to the quality of these shoes? Are they as orange as they look in these photos?

    My alternatives, if I didn't buy these, would be the AE Park Avenue in Walnut Cloud: http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF270_1_40000000001_-1 Unfortunately, these sell for $355+ in Canada. :( If anyone knows where I can get them for less than this in the GTA, I would like to know.

    If the price were equal, I would prefer the AEs, but I don't see how I could justify an extra $80 for them.

    Thanks in advance for any feedback you may provide.

    Looks like those are the ones made by AE for BB. It is the Fifth Ave. but for BB it is made with a poron insole, dovetail heel and combination sole.

    As long as the materials needed to re-craft are available, AE will do it (as an AE CSR once told me over the phone...)
