I don't like them, I own a pair of Alan Edmunds Park Ave shoes that I usually just polish very well. Thoughts? Swap out the cummerbund for a vest.
The jacket seems to have more shape than what I expected from an A&S one. But that may just be due to the way its pinned on the mannequin. Very dapper.

It seems that the last will make or break the fit for you. I wear a 7.5 D in most US sizes but when I ordered my EGs at the recent trunk show, I dropped down to a 6.5 and out to an E width on the 82 last. I could fill out the D width fine, but the elongated shape of the 82 left too much room in the toe and my heel slipped out a bit. So, the width was fine, but the length was too long. That's why it was recommended that I go down a half size and out to an E, since the D...
I too have the JL Borders in both Black and Dark Brown. Nice shoe!
Looking for some online sources where I can view fabric swatches. I've checked out Holland and Sherry's site and am looking for other sites that show swatch pictures and fabric details. Thanks!
I made three purchases: 1. Oundle- 82 last, burnt pine 2. Newbury- 808 or 888 (I left if up to Hillary to determine which was best for my foot), no medallion, dark oak. 3. Southwold-808 or 888 (same as above), edwardian I was great meeting some of the DC SF members. Lots of fun!
Thoughts on this shoe-fit,style, comfort, construction? Thanks!
