    Cross-posted from the Brooks Brothers sale thread, my new Peal & Co. (Crockett & Jones for Brooks Brothers) wingtips:

    The box:

    Another angle:

    Markings in the shoes show that they were made by Crockett & Jones on the 240 last:

    Top-down comparison to Alfred Sargent-made Peals on the 87 last (both size 10D):

    From the front. Also, my daughter will start potty-training in the near-future:

    And you didn't make them yourself out of an old pair from your closet? That's sub-par for SF standards, you know.

    Just kidding, your daughter definitely got style!

    I have tried many diffrent brands in my life as John Lobb, G&G, Tricker's, Church's, Ralph Lauren and so on.. But the best shoes me personaly got comfortable with was C&J and loafers in Tod's (nothing I buy now, only what I have left)
    So I sold all other brands I had and kept only C&J and Tod's and there on I have only bought C&J shoes.

    I am sure there are mutch better qualities, models out there. But we all are diffrent :)

    dm2703. You have to use Meltonian Color preparer and some serious elbown grease to get that caked on wax off. Then you have to use Fiebing's Leather dye to change the color and then some cream and wax polish. You're not going to significantly change the color of your shoes just with caking on polish.
