I just received these Brooks Bros. bucks. Who made them? Alden? The sole says G2Â
and BROOKS BROTHERS.

Given the B/D marking they are most assuredly Alden.

I concur with Tom's assessment. Nice score Alan!

My only concern would be that I've seen Alden designate their shoe width vertically:
B
D
rather than horizontally as pictured: D/B.

Still, I don't know what other US maker for Brooks would indicate a combination last.
