Many thanks to member "iamsilvermember", for helping with my post below about the Townleys on Shoebank.
He was the original owner, and returned them to the Ohio-Jefferson store. After seeing my post, he talked to the supervisor there, Kristle. They found the shoes, and both contacted me about the order. This forum is so good, it's scary!
The Townleys are on the way to me now!
Another 9D Brown Cordovan Townley is on the shoebank for $299. I wonder if @NWTeal made a return?
