To complete the circle, or rather—to fill out the “corner”, my black “Haights” I picked up three months back at BCF for $99.00...

 


With the black Dainite sole. Love this style...

I wear SmartWool Diamond Jim socks all year round. They're fantastic. Keep your feet cool in summer and warm in winter. Wool is a wonderful fabric.

Also I find that, I would need to increase my shoe size by .5 to compensate for DT's thickness as compared to Pantherella dress socks. 

I have a large number of SmartWool socks including Diamond Jim. The patterned ones like Diamond Jim's seem to hold up well but my solid color SW socks have worn through on the bottoms after a year or two, they turn white in spots as they thin. I agree wool is the best for socks and do keep your feet cool in the summer and warm in the winter. SW also makes a liner sock that is the best wicking sock I have ever found for hunting and hunting boots. I have a number of taller BB wool socks I often wear with suits that have held up well too.

 

But I am gradually replacing my SW socks with Darn Tough. They do have dress socks of normal thickness, you have to catch them when they are in production and don't seem to be in production long. I have a pair of DT birdseye dress socks, I'd give up 40 pair of SW socks if I could find 10 pairs of those again. I'm not a fan of the thin Pantherella dress socks but that is personal preference, just like shoes and boots :)

If that's the case, brushing those points for a few minutes until the wax heats up (may need to wipe with a lightly damp cloth before) will make the cracks go away until the next wear. It will likely disappear as the buildup rubs off over time. You could strip some of the wax with renomat if you wanted to get the wax off immediately.


Wax on, wax off?  :nodding:

Looking for sizing advice on:

 

--Duke

--Franciscan

--Norwich OR Lubbock

 

Wearing an 8E 5-last, 8.5E 8-last and 511-last, and a super-tight toebox 97 last Shell Westchester with heel pads cuz it was humungous in back

 

I'm in Canada, so the whole try-and-return thing is too expensive/hassle-laden

 

Gentlemen?

 

@Neo1 this should be right up your alley amigo :)

I'm sorry, but I have never even tried on a pair of Fort Collins.

It's the exact same shoe, except Flatiron has a medallion.

I have been going back and forth on the dark brown PAs since they're at $257.90 due to the Nordstrom sale. I know I'm going to need to add something of that color to my rotation, but I am hesitant because I don't think it needs to be as conservative as the Park Avenue. The shoe will mostly be worn with trousers and a dress shirt and occasionally with suits. Maybe the Jefferson or McAllister is a more appropriate choice?

YMMV - getting merlot mcallisters AND merlot wide basic belt "price matched" at $257.90 and w/e the nordstrom sale price is for wide basic, respectively at an AE store.

According to the Nordstrom website, the McAllister is only on sale at $257.90 in black and walnut. The bourbon and merlot versions are still at $385.

hence my use of quotation marks and "YMMV" b/c I know stores are capable of giving you that price even though it isn't on sale at nordstrom.

Any pics of the Lexington in the wild?

As above, I'm inclined to wear derbies with suit and the Lexington seems a perfect pair, theoretically. Unfortunately, AES stock photos are the wrong side of butt ugly (maybe that's a bit harsh but they aren't exactly fetching photos). I assume the fault is with AEs photographer, as usual, as opposed to their design department?
