    Where to buy UK Shoes if in the USA? Best online resource?

    Where is the best resource for purchasing UK brands (Alfred Sargent, etc.) if you live in the United States? I also take advantage of the Allen Edmonds sales and would never pay full price for any of their shoes, is there a good discount resource for UK brand sales? I am looking for an upgrade to Allen Edmonds in the $400-$500 range and thus far am looking at Alfred Sargent and Carmina.

    I am very happy with my experience with Herring Shoes, who carry seven or eight different UK brands ranging from about $700 and down. The brand I purchased was Herring Premier, model Phillip II monk strap (made by Alfred Sargent, about $420, but I got them on a rare sale for about $100 off).

    They came with not only shoe bags, but shoe cream.

    And I love https://us.jfitzpatrickfootwear.com/

    He started out in the UK and now has one store in NYC. He is right in your price range and does made to order custom shoes for just a tad bit more.

    I'm waiting now for some of his button boots I ordered last week in a two-tone black and burgundy. I also have some of his tassel loafers.

    Thanks mebejoseph. I've been looking at J Fitzpatrick, I wasn't sure how the quality compares to Carmina and Alfred Sargent though. Unable to find direct comparison reviews. I'm looking for a sleeker more elegant look than the AE Park Avenues for a black cap-toe (without or with some broguing), but with the same solid GYW feel.

    Also, this thread sucks because it has inspired me to spend the last hour looking at shoes on the internet and tempting me to buy something I can't really afford and won't wear often enough because I already have more shoes than any sane male should have.

    AFinePairOfShoes for Alfred Sargent, and you can try Gentlemen's Footwear for Carmina if you don't want to go direct. Justin Fitzpatrick is a good option, as is Sons of Henrey which seems to be turning out really nice shoes for a great price.
