YMMV - I have a very high instep, and the Patriot works for me. The cordovan is more pliable than calf after a few wears and breaks in well. 
Closest thing would probably be the Clifton or the RL Slaton
 Hm... I don't see any defects. I ONLY SEE PATINA!
 In my opinion (some may disagree), They run much narrower and a tad shorter than the 5 last. I am usually a 8.5E in the 5 last, and I fit a 9E in the RL bluchers (slaton and sandersons).

 Interesting, would you care to share some examples? I've always just assumed natural shell to look somewhat like walnut
 I really like the shape of those. What were the names of these on the seconds list? I'm wondering if I missed them because I didn't recognize the model name
 Looks like an interesting alternative... but I'm not an early adopter by any means, especially after seeing some of these recent Meermin experiences
 I definitely understand what you are talking about. Sometimes I get the same delay, and it seems if you cast a wider net, your chances increase (email 2 different outlets, one will answer... or just pick up the phone). I don't have experience with the shoemart's system. but it does sound interesting. How are their prices in terms of % off vs. AE's shoebank? I might have to look into this, but I don't exactly know my alden sizing, and some major QC issues on firsts in the...
