    Is there supposed to be a slight plasticy sound when breaking in the shell?

    I don't know the answer but they have them online and in stock. I just ordered the Brooks Brothers Alden PTB in black shell.

    the downtown brooks brothers (on broadway in Flatiron....if that's what you are referring to), is hardly a real BB in my opinion and carries limited, if any, suiting...much less cordovan shoes.

    BB.com currently has shell offerings, and i would be very surprised if Madison Ave doesn't have any shell in stock either, though I don't get up there very often. Speaking of BB.com, they have #8 LHS for 598, which makes me even more outraged at J.Crew's calf LHS pricing at 525.
