Did anyone notice this yet? The Peal monks are now $428 and cordovan loafers are now $528. Just wondering when it might have happened.

That's a pretty large increase. Must be for the fall line. I'm glad I have lots of shoes!

They've all been made 10% better, of course. Or else 10% bigger.

which would make sense given the dollar's weakness. But I see the Aldens have gone up as well. I'm pretty sure that the prices haven't gone up in at least 18 months prior though.
