Agreed. And if you really want to spoil your shoes, check out the hanger project. Kirby is a SF member and has lots of amazing items for sale. The website also contains info on how to care for them. Enjoy!AHS
If I may... Here's my experience looking for the wingtips in relatively good shape and then buying a NIB pair.A brand new pair from RL will cost nearly $1,000. On eBay I found a new pair (with some shop wear) for approx $585. I've seen pretty worn pairs going for $300 - $350 and good to very good condition around $400 - $500.Hope that is helpful.AHS
I wish C&J did a longwing for RL.Another day, another bus..I love these shoes. I've instructed my wife that I want to be buried in them.AHS

I love this thread. Basically it's photos of the same 3 or 4 models shown over and over (and over!) interspersed with a question about sizing 1/2 size down. But I'm hooked!

Very helpful. Thanks.AHS
I don't know where I picked up my thicker dress socks. Maybe uniglo or muji? I'd be interested, as well, about some other good sources.My understanding / experience is that the older models of the shortwing, PTB, and loafer were branded as Polo (rather than Ralph Lauren) and that the shell was a warmer, lighter shade of brown. More recent models -- same design, last, etc.. but branded as Ralph Lauren -- were a darker shade of brown.I see a clear difference in shades...
This makes a lot of sense to me.MOSY, I wouldn't over think this. If your shoes are too small, then your feet will hurt. You'll wear them 3-4 times, in pain, hoping that they will suddenly conform to your feet. After that, they sit in your closet mocking you and begging you to sell them on the B&S thread. Finally, adding insult to injury, you spend the next month politely declining lowball offers from people like me Go up the 1/2 size. A slightly thicker sock should make...
