Yes. A great shoe and super-durable. You can get them cheaper (and brand new) on eBay.
Possible options... Sebago Classic http://www.sebago.com/Product/NGP/Cl...s/Classic.aspx Sebago Sherman http://www.sebago.com/Product/NGP/Cl...s/Sherman.aspx Bass Larson http://www.shoes.com/Shopping/Produc...648&pg=5056688 Quoddy Beefroll Penny's http://www.quoddytrail.com/Venetians.htm Obviously, you'd have to wait on these. Mine are supposed to be here this week (I ordered in early January). There's probably more out there. eBay sometimes has a...
Quoddy can also do up boat shoes in other leathers including suede. You can call/email for leather samples.
Another vote for hang dry. Sometimes, I'll hang dry for an hour or so, then iron them (if for some reason I need an ironed oxford cloth shirt).
Why would you want to wash them? That being said, I wash mine twice a year...in the ocean.

Unlined, for the most part, does not allow the foot to sweat which is great for us non-sock wearers (okay, I do wear them sometimes). I generally hate lined shoes, save true dress shoes. But, always wear socks with leather-lined shoes. BTW, the Quoddy Boat's are $16 cheaper if you...
I have the top pair pictured. The bottom color is cinnamon and is also nice, but the brown chromexecal (top pair) develops great character in color and leather. The cinnamon becomes too light for my taste. Yes, Quoddy is backlogged. Remember, they are a small family operation and, now that the fashion industry has discovered them, cannot always keep up with demand. My boat shoes and my canoe mocs each took about three months to arrive, but have been well worth it.
Well, right now I have a pair of NS in a size 33 and two pair of 501 STF in a 35x36 (though the waist is now a 34). My true waist size is a 34. My problem with the '47s will seem to be that they don't offer odd sizes, so I guess I'll either be getting a 34 or a 36. I don't like tight denim, but I don't like anything too big, either. Thanks for all the comments, though. Your experience/advice is very helpful.
I have both A/O Topsiders and Quoddy's, and like each for different reasons. Overall, I find myself going for my Sperry's more often. I suppose that's tied to childhood/youth, since that's what I've always worn. You can't go wrong with them.
Thanks. Now, I'll just wait for Denimbar to get them back in.
