    I'm wondering this too. I was disappointed to see that they stopped making new double soled calfskin PTBs in either chocolate or cognac, despite the fact they are still making the wingtip bluchers. I was considering a single MTO of the PTBs but that gets pricey, and I'm not sure what's going on as far as who's making their shoes now.

    So am I to understand that Oak Street is just a re-brander and doesn't make any shoes at all? That the nostalgia photo from yesteryear on their website of "Master Cobbler John Vlagos" is nothing more than marketing...?

    I hope that the Bean blucher look-alike that I just ordered from their site is in fact made in Maine and is of decent quality.
