You could probably score new seconds for around that price as well. Just a thought guess it would depend on condition.

 

Plus, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is only about two months away and they always sell first quality PA's for $200-220 with free shipping.

Call the Shoebank and see if they have any Brooks Brothers Park Ave's in 2nds. They'll be very close to that price and they'll be new so you can put your STINK in them biggrin.gif

I actually have a pair of Niles also which are calf. At the widest part those are 3.98 inches wide on the sole. Not sure if that accurately measures the upper too, but I don't have a caliper. I will measure one of my 5 lasted shoes when I get a chance in the same way.

I measured the uppers in a very inexact way, but came up with roughly 4 inches for my 8 last Delrays in a 12D and 4.25 for my 5 last shoes.  Not scientific in the least bit, but indicative of a difference in width.  Curious to hear what you find.

Do you remember the final price you paid for the Mcallisters?

I picked up the brooks brothers seconds for $159 + tax...

I thought long and hard about the walnut Jefferson instead...

I would. I believe the walnut McAllister is $269 as a second, so assuming a 15% discount that would be about $230. I think the extra $20 for the Jefferson would be well worth it. This is from the Independence collection, so the sole is different and the leather is apparently softer. I've only seen them in the store, so wont know for sure until tomorrow. The retail price is $475, and the regular seconds price is $379. The $249 price is only for the walnut version, I think the other colors would be 15% off of $379. I just ordered mine on Wednesday and that was the price they gave me.

It's been nuts at work so I haven't had time to post much, but here are my patriots in burgundy shell, at lunch today, 3rd Friday in a row.

I'm jealous of the collection you are quickly building! The Franciscans are great. The rubbing noise goes away with one full day wear. Get'em!

The model I purchased is the Sandlot. They are beat up looking to begin with, but I think they are neat.

I picked up the Sandlot as well and managed to get the last one of my team, the Red Sox. I was disappointed I didn't call in time for any of the regular brown pairs.

I just received my Sanford in the mail today and the side of the shoes appears to be pushing into my ankle when I am standing up. This causes an uncomfortable feeling around the area of my ankle.

 

Will a wider width fix this problem?

Lately jville factory store has been heavily mentioned in this tread. So I am guessing their sale is going through the roof and they could be the busiest ae store in us. I have emailed them yesterday for a list of available shoes. No reply. Few months ago they would reply with in 20 to 30 minutes. I am not angry or upset at them , I just want to pickup some shoes on my sizes before the sizes runs out. Going forward I am thinking of using some other stores that is not as busy. Any recommendation ? You can even pm me the store details.

Do they look better in person than in the pictures? I was unsure about them, but for $19 why not?
