    Are these any good?

    MSRP of $488, now on sale at 50%. I was just wondering if the quality was any good or if they were benchmade.

    wow, I swear this must be your first not CE-sspool post.

    Anyway, Peals are made by either Alfred Sargent or C&J. At 50% off they are not bad.

    If you mean benchmade by handmade, then no, they are not handmade. There's a pair of hand that guides them thru the machine though.

    Peal at 50% off is a good deal in my book. The shoes are quite nice and the price is even better. I would go for it if I were you.

    I won't hold that against Peal. [​IMG]

    Let me see if I can get back there and find out; I don't remember the exact model number.

    I recently bought a pair of the Peal & Co. black captoe bals. I love them. I think they are better than both Alden and Allen Edmonds.

    No, that's more like faint praise.

    Same model as the RL Darlton right?
    I agree, that wingtip sure does look nice.

    I own 2 pair of Peal & Co shoes by Sargent and they are the bomb. Nicer than the Alden & Allen Edmonds shoes I have owned in every respect. If there is one areawhere Sargent lacks, it's in the finishing (polishing)of the leathers. But I see it as a blank canvas.

    I don't have any Aldens, but even the black pair of benchgrade C&Js I have take a better polish than a black pair of AEs. With the browns, it's no contest. The dark brown handgrade C&J pair I have look almost marbled compared to my brown AE.

    I don't know what the deal is with AE,my AE's take great polish,maybe recent shoes are not good and AE is slipping in quality.
