thom browne are sanders re-labelled and marked up in price fine if you really, really like whatever style differences TB gives them, but if it's some generic makeup you can't assume the higher price means a higher grade than sanders diplo
TB used to use trickers, but then that got too expensive for them so they swapped to sanders which costs less for them, not that they lowered the pricing to reflect a change in manufacturer fuck TB
mark mcnairy is also re-labelled sanders more realistic pricing compared to TB lots of non-standard suede colours from MM
>>9510587 With sanders I was thinking of some I saw on rakuten, they had a rubber sole and we're a bit fatter. Can't seem upload pics atm but Google will find it if you want to see.
With Thom Browne you're paying for the design sure, they're much better looking than any of the non designer ones IMO, they look much chunkier and exaggerated compared to the others. But TB prices are crazy atm.
Alden/ae don't try to look chunky and are more traditional, the whole unironic mfa/sf heritage thing etc.

I think though that they'd all be the same last, just a different makeup specifics (perhaps a diff sole).
>>9510652 >But TB prices are crazy atm. yes i'm not that enthused with their designs, so I guess I'm just biased against them
>>9510652 >Alden/ae don't try to look chunky and are more traditional if that's what you're looking for carmina's long wings (generally on their detroit last) are pretty "sleek" for this kind of shoe from comparison pics the detroit is even sleeker than the lasts alden typically use for their longwings and if it's on the carmina oscar last, well, that's a bit too sleek for me
sleekness if fucking overrated hopefully the trend passes
pic missed out on this from carmina because I was too slow maybe when they restock i'd love a pair in this colour and leather
if I had any faith with alden left I'd get some colour 8 longwings. i've had to stop myself several times just can't trust their bullshit qc though, and don't want to bother with international returns
