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.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Lightly used, I bought them here and wore them twice and they just don't fit quite right for me either. Great deal on a lovely pair of Horween cordovan brogues.

    $200 including CONUS shipping and fees.

    From the original listing:
    Here are original pics:

    I will update the listing

    Up for a sale is a pair of lightly worn Duckie Brown for Florscheim for Brooks Brothers (got that?!) gun boats in tan Horween Shell Cordovan.

    These are the exact same shoes featured by Namor in his infamous Duckie Brown thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/231441/florsheim-by-duckie-brown-cordovan-shoe-boot-thread#post_4240819

    These are a great casual shoe and look great with jeans. I personally love this color and would keep them if they fit better.

    Here are relevant details:
    - Size 11D. But these fit big, due to a wide forefoot. They are more suited for an 11 1/2 D.
    - "Brandy" colored Horween shell. But looks tan, and in fact the BB website listed them as tan.
    - Parts of the shoes seem to be different tints, depending on the light. I actually like this effect.
    - Made in India
    - Fully Goodyear welted.
    - Worn 4 times. Always used shoe trees. Hardly any wear on the soles, other than paint being scraped off.
    - Retail is $650; though to be fair, this line of shoes was featured on Gilt for less than $300.
    - Note the metal lace tips.
    - Quality issues:
    - I have had NO quality issues at all. But please refer to the above thread to hear about experiences with these shoes. There are mixed good and bad experiences.
    - Having said that, these are not finished at the quality of fine English shoes, nor at AE or Alden at their best.
    - But again, for shell and for casual wear, I think these are great.​
