Nope, helpful!
I realize this has probably been addressed ad nauseam, but could someone comment on the fit of the Dalton compared to shoes on the 5 last? For years I thought I was a 9.5D in the Strand, but always felt they were a little snug. This year I bought a pair of McAllisters at the AE store in Philadelphia, and the SA informed me that I should be wearing an 8.5EEE. Couldn't be happier....the fit is so much more comfortable. But when I tried on Daltons in 8.5EEE they felt too...
Slim pickings, but got to like these for summertime.
Or maybe......?
What you're honing in on is the behavioral principle of satisficing versus optimizing. In our decision making we tend not to optimize, we satisfice. Satisficing means finding a solution that's "good enough". For Linda, what's she's doing is good enough for her.
In late but wanted to return to the purpose of this thread: pictures of bikes. Lemond Zurich, parked in a lovely spot by the river.
Just FYI, if you're talking multiple shoes you'll be fine, but I don't think its going too far out on a limb to say that there is NO shoe out there that will look good with jeans up to a suit. Jeans to dressy chinos, yes. Chinos to suits, yes. But jeans to suits, no.
At least it is an improvement over purely color coded, which is what they had for the last 1-2 years. What marketing genius came up with that?
Question: can I predict that the fit for the McAllister will be the same as for the Strand? I realize they're both on the 5 last. I wear a 9.5D in the strand and the fit is pretty good, perhaps just a touch tight. Yet, I purchased the Park Avenue without trying it on and find the fit crosses over into legitimately too tight. I was surprised by this, as again, both are on the same last. Both my Strand and my Park Avenue are Brooks Brothers models, btw. So will I be...
Quoting a post from 3 weeks ago. You were right! Got my old Brooks Brothers blazer back, cut the buttons off and tossed the coat, and sold the buttons in 10 days for a twenty dollar bill!
