    Clarks/Bostonian made in USA: anyone know these?

    Woah. When did these happen? GYW, made in NY, available in wide sizes, and look pretty sharp! Not too sure about that price, though. Anyone know anything?

    Curious what kind of leather they use. That definitely is a surprise coming out of that brand.

      I think I noticed about a year ago. I think I figured out who makes them for Bostonian, but I forget now.

      I think I need to add a pair to my "want it" list.

      They also have a long wing tip derby and a boot:

        I'm always happy to see brands offering USA-made shoes, but if you're going to spend that much, you might as well go another $100 and get Aldens.

          I was thinking similarly too. With that price, I wonder how it compares to AE stuff in general.

            There's so little information on these.

            I think a pair from Alden is on my collection list above these.

            But maybe I should rethink that. So few people seem to be buying them (the lack of reviews suggests that), maybe they won't be around long.

              I am almost positive that this small company is making them for bostonian, unless there are some other boot manufacturer in Buffalo that I can't find.

              their BOOTS 100% look like the bostonian ones. i'm not sure about the rest. I sure don't know where else they'd make them.

                Yes, that's the one I found as well. I'm bookmarking now so I don't forget. Thanks.

                Also, I'm shooting them an email and asking if they are making the shoes for Bostonian.

                  [MENTION=12001]evanparker[/MENTION],

                  The owner of Parkhurst wrote me back and said that he's not making them.

                  He did seem like a nice guy and was wondering why we thought he was the one. I told him location, construction, and style.

                  But maybe he knows other manufacturers in upstate New York and will write back.
