I would suggest the AEs if you're in the US. The ability to walk into a store and try them on is alone worth the premium over Meermin etc (fseems to be a fine shoe, don't get me wrong). I've had nothing but good experiences with Allen Edmonds sales people -- they will try all sorts of size/width combinations to make sure you get the best fit since they work on commissions and you are a potential future customer. Mail ordering shoes is really tricky, and not for the faint...
Repost no doubt, but for those who need a last refresher: http://www.claymoorslist.com/portfolios/pepe-albaladejo-meermin
Try a e width. I'm 9.5d in macneils but 9.5e in Daltons. Toe box is narrow.Super comfortable..I'd love a black dalton with natural welt and commando sole...
At least for the editorial, please keep turning down those freebies. To be honest I think that the community can sniff out stealth marketing etc. Plus there's plenty of affiliate/fanboy threads if you want a rose-colored-glasses view.As for editorial, I'd like to see more interviews with designers at the same time they release their seasonal collections. And not just designers per se, but also with people like Christian from Left Field, who ever chooses Gitman's fabrics etc.
Ah, right, the 310. I really don't like upturned toes, whether on work boots or "baller footwear" so had put it out of my mental map.
Waxed flesh SF service boot in the wild. 2045 last is probably viberg's clunkiest but actually really sleek for a "work" boot.
@hirsh, please just start a thread titled "hirsh." You can post whatever you want there, as many times as you want. I'll even unblock you.
If those sample boots fit you, I'd keep them. Doesn't look good now but I guarantee with some wear it will barely be noticeable, esp. since it's on the inside.
Tbh that cut isn't very, um, flattering. Thigh pulling is really uncomfortable, esp. If they droop off you waist. You might want to try a higher rise so they sit on your hip bones. I like a cold soak after a few weeks to get some of the extra dye out and sort of set the shrinkage. But if sanforized you won't see much.
Reviving this thread for an endorsement of Emile Lafaurie. If you are visiting Paris during the solders (January and July) this is a pretty good buy. I picked up a slim cut cotton/linen casual sports coat for 130 euros and a cotton/linen scarf for 25 in their Batignolles boutique. Not sure I'd pay full price but if you want relatively discreet euro-style biz/cash stuff you can't go wrong. Not sure if they still sell in the US.
