Beautiful shoes, and agree - you can't go wrong.
Sort of a PSA. Noticed Shoebank has the Shaker Heights in brown and chili at $127. I know these are popular here. Also have the Promontory Point in black at $127, though some have reported fit issues with that boot.
I purchased 34 tagged and the waist is almost 36. So seems to be the usual 2" larger than tagged.I usually wear 32 or 33 tagged in RRL, depending on the style. I am going to order 32 and see how it fits. The 34 is too large in the waist, but it's hard to gauge how the thighs will be in the smaller size.Edit: I wear 32 in the old straight fit. But in the slims I have to get 33 or 34 because of the thighs.
Is the Ro Buck only made in even sizes? Seems like all the odd sizes and smaller sizes are sold out - but maybe were never there.The fit on these is great everywhere but the waist. I'm probably going to take your advice and plan on having the waist taken in later.
This is the issue I had. I had to size up.But I would still say MacNeil. If you plan to wear with suits, calf is a good option.
Most important thing is to try them both on to make sure one is not disqualified for fit.Assuming they fit equally well for you, I vote MacNeil by a large margin. To me, the wingtip style is the standard for cordovan. Get those in burgundy and you are off to a great start with a classic.
Wow. This is sounding like they are designed to be looser in the waist.
I got mine today, too. Same opinion and same fit issue. Thinking I will order 2 sizes down and see. But if that doesn't work, I won't force it.. I'll wait for next time they make this style and fit. As sgrprod said, they are a great fit and a nice change from the slim stuff.Also, on second thought - the other option for you, koidragon, might be to have a tailor take the waist in. If the thighs fit well, that would probably be your best bet. Mine are a little loose...
Excellent quote!I have been thinning the herd too, but then I sometimes add to it again. I have at least gotten to the point where I am only acquiring shoes that I really find to be special for some reason, as opposed to just on sale. But having said that, I've identified three different shoes (maybe four) between the Shoe Bank sale and retail that I am considering at the moment!Strangely, the black plain- or cap-toe blucher for business travel has eluded me. Struck out...
Try calling a store near you. They often have different stock than the website. I bought my PTBs at a store when they were not listed on the website.
