    Does anyone know off the top of their head what last Brooks Brothers used for their cordovan PTB? Was it the barrie? or their own design?

    I would think: denim, tan khakis, light gray, etc...

    It's not the Barrie, but it fits very similarly. The name of it escapes me. Worked there for 9 years, but it's been awhile and I'm getting old, ha.

    Lol, thanks, Tom, and big ups to you on the whiskey Indy. Huge fan.

    wonderful collection!

    Thanks, Uncle! It goes without saying we're all in awe of your own collection as well.

    what is this break-in method you speak of?

    He just means wear them indoors on carpet for a while to make sure they fit before you wear them on concrete.

    The office moves to business casual during the summer and I need a light tan pair of loafers to wear with khakis or light colored dress pants. I was thinking a nice pair of whiskey loafers like the ones below. Do the whiskey loafers darken with age? Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.
