    Does anyone know of stores in (or around) the Boston area that offers quality shoes (C&J, Carmina, Trickers, AS, EG, JL, Vass, etc)? I have only been able to find Alden and AE and would like to try on a few others before I buy a pair but have come up empty. Any suggestions made in previous threads seem to have closed since then.

    I know Neiman Marcus has some Lobbs on the website - try calling their Copley Plaza location to see if they're carrying them.

    Anyone know where I can find C&J? I'd rather not just blindly order online until I find the right size and last.

    Brooks Brothers Peal&Co shoes are C&J if they aren't the lightweight ones. There's a big BB on Newbury.

    I could do C&J or AS, how can I be positive they are either of those when I am trying them on?

    There is a place in Boston called Vox Sartoria you might want to look into. Vox Sartoria has all the brands you mention as well as an extensive range of AE seconds. I understand, however, that only limited sizes are available.

    I understand they also offer AE seconds in smaller sizes to be used as trees for your AE firsts.

    I was under the impression that all of the Peal&Co shoes other than lightweight ones are now C&J. The only remaining AS shoes are deadstock on the website, but there's a good possibility I'm wrong. As for telling which is which, the nail pattern on the heel can help you out. There's a thread somewhere on here that details each one, I haven't seen it in a while though. A search should bring it up.

    Try searching it as one word. I believe the proprietor is a member of these fora.
