Asked myself the same question. Wasn't feelin' it. Plus, with all the grit in the pockets - the line 'rode hard, put away wet' ran thru my head.Still, it's nice to know who's getting the fresh meat out here.
• Vass for Balderamassi or w/e• Thom Browne for BBBF Pebblegrain longwings• Zegna captoes$10 ea for Vass & EZ, $100 for the BBBFs (thx Linda!). Sadly, none fitif you mean for personal then it's:• Yuketen Maine Guide Ox• Mark McNairy elevated brogues• Acne sandals
I think in general it goes dress models (the plain toe ripple sole is a sleek oxford) are TTS, while field models expect a heavy sock, and are built 1/2 - 1 size bigger.
Red Wing uses this sizing method, too. Not terribly helpful for internet buyers, but a good starting point.
^^ coveted brand, popular models. Best option is marketplace / grailed / kijiji / ebay for someone who sized wrong (ie it hasn't been worn much). Alternately, a drycleaning should take care of harder used items. Not an answer if you need NWT, but an option.
