I never thought about this before, so I thought I'd write a brief story. Yesterday, I returned from a 3 day very formal business meeting. The meetings required clothes from full suits to sportcoats to sweaters to jeans depending on what time of day it was. The Airline "mishandled" my luggage. Good news is, they found it and it was delivered to me today. BUT - what if it really was lost? Here's what I had checked: Custom suit - $1500 Zanella pants -...
1) Brown is for farmer (everyone should be required to edit their answers to include this one. The rest, in no particular order: 2) Canvassed - not fused 3) Black pants are for waiter 4) Balmorals vs. Bluchers 5) There are dozens of shades of brown shoes. I need the entire spectrum. 6) OTR shirts will never fit. 6a) Jantzen 7) Pantherella 8) Sevenfold 9) Shoe trees and shoe rotation 10) It's OK for a hetero to give a #$%^ about dressing well

Maybe Americans just need to wear bicycle toe shoes to work and I'm just being stodgy.
I could also have titled this: Allen Edmonds - the casual choice Before Styleforum, my shoe of choice has been Allen Edmunds for at least 10 years. In the past year I've even bought two new pair. And now I'm out of choices with Allen Edmonds. Here's what a perusal of their website reveals: 4 shoe lines (Dress, Dress Casual, Casual, and Casual Comfort), 76 different shoes. (I'll preface my comments by noting that I prefer balmorals when wearing a coat and...
Sorry - triple post. "Submit" didn't appear to work.

My GUESS is that those are reasonably close. If your foot runs on the wide side of normal, I'd guess the fit would be good. If your foot runs on the narrow side, I'd guess those will be sloppy.
