    No idea but they do look pretty cheap. I'd hold off for the Brooks Brother's Presidio. They're made by Allen Edmonds and pop-up in the AE Factory sales all the time (I think they've been discontinued). I picked up my pair in the 2 for $250 a few months back. They're great shoes with a surprisingly sleak toe. This dude is even selling a few pairs on ebay for $99:

    Do the Brooks Brothers branded shoes show up on the Shoe Bank website or do you have to email for a list of those shoes?

      I've wondered this as well. When I used to request lists from the Shoebank they would always show a decent amount of BB and RL models, but I don't recall seeing them listed on the new site.

        They definitely used to. I remember seeing a laughably janky picture of these on the shoebank website and they're very obviously Brooks Brother's: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Leathe...fault,pd.html?

        I did a quick skim on the shoebank site just now in a few sizes and couldn't find any obviously BB shoes but they definitely USED TO have Brooks Brother's shoes up on there. Maybe they're just sold out in the sizes I was looking at?

          I was in the freeport Allen Edmonds store last week and noticed a few pairs of BB shoes that I didn't see on the site. So I'd say you probably have to call them to find out. Based on what I saw in store, the site isn't that up to date and lags behind a few days as I requested a few pairs i saw in stock online, which they didn't have in store.

            I'm going to an outdoor convention in August, the dead of summer in DC, and dress code is formal attire. I've been looking for a summer suit, and the Dappered.com find on the J. Crew suit intrigues me, and they have my size in both the jacket and pants. http://preview.tinyurl.com/nttw7ec I don't want to spend more than $400 on a suit, and so it falls comfortably within my budget. Is this a good first summer suit, or should I look elsewhere for my first summer suit? Was considering SuitSupply, but those suits fall in the upper range of my budget, so would like to find something cheaper and comparable first.

              I would say, yes. Linen will breathe really well and considering how humid DC can and probably will be, I'd say go for it.

                    I would get the ludlow suit, and spend the extra money for tailoring the suit.

                      Just picked up this blazer and am having trouble finding outfits for it. Anyone have suggestions for some solutions (cheap if possible) that I could use to rock the blazer?

                        I'd have to say with Jeans and an OCBD is about all I'd wear that jacket with

                          "Derby" refers to how they are laced. Bucks are a type of derby. They're typically made of suede (traditionally white or off-white) with a contrast rubber sole. I believe the term "buck" comes from the fact that they used to be made of nubuck.

                            Whatever you do, avoid a white shirt and black pants-that's a pretty classic valet parker look.

                              I would try it with a light pants colour, white or beige (like they have on the site). Another idea is a pair of blue pants for contrast, although I think that's a bit harder...

                              A blue/white striped breton or a linen white shirt would work for the top.

                                Anyone in the Washington, DC, area that can recommend a reputable tailor that doesn't cost an arm and a leg? Preferably on the NoVa side.
