That color might be considered "repello" to some...
No disputing that, but look at Middleboro/Taunton MA on a map - the nearest "cities" are Brockton (home of "Marvelous" Marvin Hagler), Providence (fictional home of Peter Griffin and real home - when he's not in prison - of Vincent "Buddy" Cianci) and Fall River (home of Lizzie Borden). This is the land of "wicked", of "pissa" or, in that most extraordinary circumstance, "wicked pissa"; this is not the land of fucking slick.
Alden doesn't do "fucking slick"
Ferragamo short wings (in calf and suede) for $995/pair on page A2 of today's NYT (National edition). Our shoes are officially "trendy".

The RL is more narrow than the Barrie (toe box still has plenty of room).

Shameless Plug... Just received a pair of Ralph Lauren Marlow shortwings from Namor - I've casually checked out these amazing shoes (made in England by C&J) at the Ralph Lauren store in SF (which I did unassisted because the sales people were obviously too busy to help me - but I digress...). Never quite appreciated the quality until now. And the price and service you'll get from Roman, well let's just say that both are much, much better than you'll get at RL SF.
