I agree that they are gorgeous however the frustration of not having what i ordered is huge, specially due to the fact that in the first yime the width was not according to my request too.
despite that and as you say so far i still do not know if sizing is still an issue as i dont know if they were made in E width or not. This could be checked of course before delivery though.
I prefer a rather more dark shoe that is why i asked for th antic cognac. A re-style of the 975 from alden (not that similar, i kniw) that i like a lot and never bought. Maybe it's time now.
tough call man. if youre going for a classic, then get the classic. in the same way an eg galway craving can only be satisfied with the eg galway. i think its obvious what needs to be done here: grab the alden 975 and the whiskey vass wingtips
