The ones I've tried on have been narrow shouldered and slim fitting which is what I need.
Cool pic - it's interesting, one last doesn't need a lot of space... but wow, I hadn't thought about how they need different sizes & widths of each one and how that would add up quickly.
I dig stingray leather but not so much on that shoe. Now if it was blue or green, maybe.

Regarding style, I'm a fan of spread turndown collar & 1/2" pleats, though pique can also look nice. IMO spread collars look like shit with a bowtie and particularly a tux. The last event I was at of several hundred older gentlemen in tuxedos I probably saw one in a pleated shirt... most men seem to wear a...

Are you a "standard measurement profile"? They...

Good luck with the resoling and hope you get them back just how you want them.
That is a real shame they didn't tell you up front, IMO poor internet/email communication by many businesses is a major blemish to customer service & branding. It's 2011 and it is one of, if not the, dominating ways of communicating and purchasing. It just seems weird they would destroy or trash a last - from what I understand reading here they are not the easiest things to come by or cheap. Unless I'm mistaken it's not like they require a lot of shelf space for...
