 Yes, Rain last. Simpson's too narrow for me but the Rain fits my feet really well. 
I got these from Gentlemen's Footwear a while back, but didn't get around to posting photos:        Thanks very much to Steve of Gentlemen's Footwear for the beautiful shoes. In real life, they're a lovely dark navy that looks almost black in some lights but has blue highlights in direct sunlight. 
 I agree, and I must admit that I'm surprised that this is even being discussed here.  I'm not so anally retentive (at least, I don't think so) as to try to match the *shade* of my belt with the shade of my shoes, unlike some people here on SF who seem to spend too much time wondering whether they should pair a mahogany belt with their oxblood shoes. However, one thing that I will not do is wear a watch with a brown strap with black shoes and vice versa. I've got a couple...
  Looks nice - but is that the one that the factory had no record of making? 
 It's so dreadfully bad that it's almost good. 
 I think that it primarily depends upon finding a last that suits.  The 337 Handgrade last fits me beautifully and is extremely comfortable, whereas the 348 Benchgrade last just doesn't fit me nearly as well. I can wear it, but compared to the 337 lasted shoes, which were instantly comfortable with no real break-in time after I bought them, the 348 shoes took longer to feel comfortable and still don't feel as "matched" to my feet.  On the hand (or foot, perhaps), a friend...
It seems that the Wooster has been brought to Australia in a joint effort by MJ Bale and Woolmark:   http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/executive-style/style/the-most-stylish-man-youve-never-heard-of-20141023-11aw0c.html
 You'd only have a limited time to peg up at the bar before it melted, though, so you'd have to move fast. 
 That's understandable - I hate owning up to mistakes/stuff-ups and saying sorry, too. It's awkward, embarrassing and humiliating. However, if Drew had been more up-front about delays and more communicative over the past twelve months, instead of being vague, evasive and totally unavailable at times, he wouldn't have a whole lot of customers - who have already paid him hundreds of dollars each - holding metaphorical pitchforks and flaming torches. Furthermore, the longer...
@neilz4: The backlash begins? Now it's the fault of the people that bought the jackets, rather than the fault of the person who hasn't provided the jackets that were paid for 15 or 16 months ago?   Look, I could be wrong, but as I understand it, it wasn't always like this. ToJ is/was a made-to-order business so of course you had to wait for your jacket, but the waiting period was typically (as I understand it) 3-4 months, not 15 or 16 months. Furthermore, Drew...
