Here is a comparison of the B vs. D. The B fits great aside from just a tiny bit of pinching on my right pinky toe. I was thinking the CXL will be able to stretch pretty well. The D width fits well in the toes/instep, but a little too much room in the heels. No heel sleep, but you can see the space on the edge.

The D is definitely too wide for you. The amount of bowing on the sides is indicative of that. Your feet will likely sink into the Poron very nicely, and should eliminate the pinky pinch (depending on the severity of it). I'm not sure if a C width would be perfect - it might still be too wide, but if the pinky is really tight in there you might want to consider it.

Unfortunately they don't make the Rush Street in a C width. I will wear the B width around the office tomorrow on carpet only and see how they feel throughout the day. If they don't work out, I'm sure I can find another place to allocate the funds. Thanks again for the advice.

Great pick up! I love em loafers!

I remember back when you posted the blue suede graysons thinking why spend the money doing a custom build for something like that?  Well, having worn my Jermyns yesterday and destroying my right toe joint again for the nth time, I was thinking, if only I had the Jermyn/Manchester/Grayson in suede... :) Nice collection indeed.

That's a difficult question. The shoe I wear most are my Carson City boots but they're not my favorite. I end up wearing them a lot to work. I work in a plant and wear overalls 90% of the time.

I'd say if I had to give up all my AEs but get the chance to leave 3 behind, that 3 would be brown grain eagle county, shell grayson, brogue suede lakeshore drive. Not because they'll make a great rotation but because they are awesome!

I venture a guess that the grayson is the favorite....

Does anyone own the Rush Street in the blue or green?  The price seems unbeatably low but I just can't picture myself wearing these, like ever.  I own a single pair of non-black AEs, my red neumok, and while I do wear these infrequently, the red is more burnished and doesn't jump out as much as something like blue or green.  Even the blue neumok looked a little more understated.  Would love to see pics of someone wearing these Rush Streets in other colors.

i don't think so. Looks more like Aldens LHS but I wouldn't be an expert on that. Maybe mdubs can chime in.
