Anyone?

Sorry I should've given more info lol.

The Shoe Bank will ship to Canada: $25 for first pair, and $5 for each additional pair. I expect I'll have to pay some duties when it gets here, but that's okay considering the discount.

If you call in now you could probably place your order. I will be later in the evening.

Can you show us a pic? If it's so small you can't really notice it then why not keep.

How much of a discount can I expect ? And isn't the sale only starting next Tuesday ? Why call today ? Thanks.

Let me save you by saying do NOT ship directly from Allen Edmonds unless you want to pay the 30 dollar shipping PLUS 65 bucks in brokerage fees. Not duty. Brokerage fucking fees. Thanks, UPS.

Ship with a kind SF proxy. It'll save your wallet.

That wouldn't bother me if they fit perfectly. If the fit was a hair off *and* I saw issues with symmetry, they'd go back. With that said, I don't see any issues with the symmetry. I'm sure it's something only you would notice...but if it bothers you, just send 'em back. I know I've had imperfections that bothered me and my wife thought I was crazy but I'm the one who wears them.

TV2177, Are the shoes in the picture on a flat surface?  Was the photo taken at a 90 degree angle straight above the shoes?  If not, parallax in an off angle image may make the patterns look more asymmetric than they actually are.  I'm only asking to get an impression of the images.  The photos you posted do show a difference, especially in the front of the toe.  I'm just trying to mentally compensate for any artifact due to photography.

What wingtip should I get?  I currently have 3 pair of park aves(2 in black, 1 in burgundy) and a pair of black hills in walnut.  I also have a brown cap toe by j m Weston.  I wear a lot of suits so I want something et suitable tho am happy to get a more casual pair later.  I am confused by the choices.  Any consensus best for a wingtip?  Cambridge?  Jefferson?  Strand?  MacNeil?  Never had a shell cordovan pair so leaning that way as well. thanks for any suggestions.

Well, the Strand is not a wingtip, you are missing the McAllister from your list. But you might want to find a Tresana if you can, fantastic wingtip!

Yes it is taken straight from the top and it's kinda obvious once you pay a little attention to it you see the front of the toe is different.

Personally, it would drive me crazy. But maybe you are not as neurotic as I am.
post #2458 of 70737

I agree; it's a bit off.  But if you got a good price, then it may be worth it.

The shoe on the left appears wider than the one on the right.
post #2460 of 70737

The left shoe does look a little bit wider, but I think the camera is tilted slightly which creates that illusion.  Hard to say.  A photo with a scale designed for parallax correction would allow for better measurements.  Sorry to be nitty on that point.
