    If you need black captoes, call Tuttle and order the Cheaneys for $180

    tuttlecatalog.com

    Go to the Clearance section, then go to shoes, then look for Cheaney Captoe

    While I like a bunch of stuff LE does (khakis, knit ties, etc.), after trying a pair of dirty bucks from them over the summer (which I had to return because they were shoddily made and uncomfortable) I have concluded that shoes aren't really their strong suit. The LE shoes you were looking at were probably made in China.

    ^ Don't be ridiculous. Have you ever seen a border collie wearing captoes? He clearly means an Australian shepherd.

    That's what the AS stands for, right?

    I have three pairs of LE shoes and all were made in Brazil.

    Depends. Alfred Sargent has made a few models for Lands' End in recent past.

    Example: the Gibson and chukkas that made quite a few people stay up all night just last year.
