I purchased a pair of Cordovan Darlton Polo Wingtips in 10.5D this year. They run a bit large for me (I should have gone with the 10) and I didn't figure this out until after the exchange period passed. Would also trade for a gently worn / new pair of the same shoe in 10D. These are offered at the same (sale) price at which I purchased them: $417 (+S/H and tax). They normally run $600. I have my receipt and the box can include it with the shoes. They are new and...
Count me among the naysayers here ... darker brown perhaps, those look a bit light to me. If you're going to contrast, then you may consider a bolder contrast, like light tan shoes and incorporate a tan belt and jacket into the outfit. Not sure if that would work either, but it strikes me as more intentional.
I too mind my Chan a bit stiff, and was looking to emulate Kiton. However, I chose a midweight fabric and am hoping that, over time, it will 'break in.' Will this ever happen?
I very nearly ordered these, but instead went for the Holland boot - a bit more character but a bit harder to match.
Gents, in the FWIW category, I did not (and could not -- they were not available) repurchase these shoes with the current additional 15% discount. To my knowledge this size has not been available with any additional discount above the current sale price since last year.

Here here! I too give Ed the official Style Forum thumbs up!

It is unique -- ostritch is expensive. A jacket? Who would have guessed?
I have this same shoe in a black monkstrap. The construction is fantastic and it receives many complements.
Dos and don'ts are subject to personal style ... some 'exceptions' to the rules will never work, but others work well for individuals. I, for one, have worn FC shirts without a jacket for years. This means, of course, I also wear them without ties. That makes sense, considering I was wearing FC shirts with jeans in my 20s when this was unheard of. Was this a "don't"? Perhaps. Nonetheless, my point is that within the confines of my personal style these fashion...
