    Why does my whole rant seem unwarranted? I was giving an example of other mediocre offerings from the brand for a high price. I handled last season's shoes which were very similar to the brogues and was not impressed by the price/quality.

    Look, I love BoO, but the stuff I love from them is what they do best - shirts, polo's, suits. Some of their garments are extremely high priced for their shit quality. I was just using their terry sweats, leather jackets, and Sperry line as an example.

    Obviously I haven't handled those brogues but I doubt they warrant $750. I'm not a cheapass either. Just raises a red flag with BoO.

    Ha I definitely agree with all the comments concerning buying only the stuff a brand is really known for, but I just thought the shoes looked extra fresh. I'm 100% positive that buying Alden's over the BoO's would be the best choice, but you guys can't deny that they really took the captoe/brogue design to that next level

    I think it's perfectly reasonable to buy BoO shoes if you like the design. Just because they aren't known to make shoes or their shoes may not be constructed as well as other brands doesn't mean that they should be pushed to the side.

    alright sf....do I spend $60-90 on cheap shoes that will probably fall apart of $200+ on nicer ones? if I get cheaper ones I'll probably be able to afford a toj...if I go for more expensive ones than I may not be able to.

    Anyone see the Alexander Wang RTW FW11 Men's stuff? some pretty nice jackets. Any ideas where the stuff is made? I only know that his basics line is all China.

    Fucking hate weird yoox glitches. Just got a "Last article available" mail about these, even though they all suddenly disappeared from the site months ago
