1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    "Cheap shoes look bad even when they’re new and nice shoes look good even when they age”
    - renowned style author G. Bruce Boyer

    Peale & Co. produced very high quality shoes from 1791 until selling to Brooks Brothers in 1965.
    From 1958-until the sale, the company was located at 48 Wigmore Street, London.

    These shoes were made sometime between 1958 and 1965. The patina on the leather has made
    these shoes INCREDIBLY beautiful. I have polished and waxed them.

    I'd like to refer you to 2 sources to learn more about Peale & Co.'s history. There is a 30 minute
    video on You Tube, where the founder's family discusses the history of their shoes, locations, last
    making and how the shoes were made. In one instance, price is suggested that in today's currency
    these shoes were sold for more than a thousand dollars.

    The other resource is the National Archives, which catalogs dozens of very famous 20th century
    personalities and royalty who have worn these shoes. (This source may time some time to look up
    but is worth the effort).

    The shoes you are viewing do not have a labeled size but seem to fit about a size 8 US.
    They are only for sale because they do not fit my typical US 9 feet and I do not want to have them stretched.
    Outsole measures 11 5/8ths by 3 3/4ths inches. There is a small tear on the outside of the right shoe which can be seen in
    the last photo. Only the shoes will be included in this purchase, no trees, bags, etc.

    Check out my trusty feedback and amazing store!
