    I bought some white wingtip bucks in white with a red sole. They have a medallion on the toe and what looks like an 888 last. They don't even said where they are made. Anyone have a clue?

    Mostly they stock Aldens, which are quite clearly marked as such, and some Italian shoes. Sorry I don't know anything about the vendors of their white bucks.

    When did you buy them? Did you buy them directly from Carroll & Co.?

    I bought them at a consignment shop, the look brand new. They are amazing, the best looking Bucks I have ever seen, the medallion on the front is beautiful.


    Any advice on who made them? I may call the store.

    I broke my camera in China last month, getting my back up running today. Will post, as asap, they are odd shoes.

    Very old thread, however, for those interested… Carroll & Co. have historically (and still do) source from a variety of topnotch shoemakers, including Alfred Sargent (UK), Crockett & Jones (UK), Edward Green (UK), as well as a few American and Italian based outfits.
