1. Bose = plenty of better alternatives for the same money not to mention a good number for less, if your into small speakers Klipsch comes to mind as well as paradigm. 2. Louis Vuitton = every time I see someone with them I think status whore regardless of the actual quality 3. Ferregamo = why when you can get so many other choices 4. Armani = see above two responses 5. Blue Label = just finished a bottle which was a gift, 15 yr Mac Allan is better and less...

It's like saying all brick houses are bigger than wood-framed houses. It's a meaningless statement. The size of the shoe has...
I believe they are referring to ones measurement on a brannock which they refer to as "true" size. They are stating that welted shoes are on average a half a size larger than one's real world measurement and thus when looking at these shoes it is their advice to consider a half size smaller than what you measure out at, didn't know if that was accurate when compared to people here buying.
Read this article and was wondering if it was true? haven't had enough experience to comment myself and was hoping those who buy welted construction shoes could weigh in. Thanks http://www.fittedshoe.com/SHOE_ARTICLES/fitting.htm

Thanks all I think for my next pair of shoes I will consider aldens from what everyone is saying, however due to cost and availability I have been hesitant to try them. I actually visited the Allen Edmonds store today and was told by the sales associate who seemed rather knowledgable that I not only have flat feet but also a low instep as well as wide feet, he said that nothing which they offered would fit "perfectly", the first suggestion was to use tongue pads to...

You should definitely be able to find atleast one Alden last that fits you. From what my podiatrist has told me in the past I have an extremely flat foot, she said it was something I was born with and suggested arch inserts.
