    And depending on how one would define the market, a retaliatory termination of a sales agreement for selling below a MSRP could easily be deemed price discrimination and subject to antitrust scrutiny.

    Enough with the nerdy antitrust aside, back to posting beautiful Aldens.

    Hey I am all for some competitive pricing, but there is ALOT of margin in Alden shoes and they will work to protect those margins in the market. Seen it happen, just call Sherman Brothers up and ask for the ol' 10% discount they used to give out... :brick:



    I am no International Lawyer but if my corporate Antitrust Compliance Training was worth anything at all then for sure Alden would be well within its rights to decide not to sell based on supply agreement pricing stipulation violations. Alden cannot tell them how to price their shoes per se, but they sure can pull the plug on the future supply.

    Alden has been in the game a long time. With any level of sophistication, they have contractual terms that allow for them to pull the plug.

    that is a great tip.
    congrats on getting two of the classics and good going supporting a nice independent shop.

    the deal they gave you is stupendous.

    Mostly odd jackets and trousers, sometimes with jeans on the weekends. Not too slim cut. Don't the Indy's look a bit casual for a jacket and tie?

    I think I'd probably need a 10E or 10.5E in the Aberdeen, and both are sold out.

    what? i'm not an antitrust lawyer but that sounds fishy. i'm going to need a cite for that, otherwise i'm going to strike it.

    Definitely too casual for me. But some may see it differently.

    TSM also has a similar boot on the Barrie.....looks like double oiled sole vs the crepe sole that J Gilbert has.
