I have similar shoes with a vibram half soles that I wear in bad weather, slush,rain with flannels or jeans.  Works good then, but I agree with your statement above.  They are kind of in a no-mans zone, good to fill in gaps when the staple shoes are already there.

I have a very similar pair and wear them, not with a suit, though with many brown based tie/jacket combinations.. for example dark brown trousers with tan linen jacket or lighter brown/tan pants with darker brown jackets (of which I have several).. I have a few blue ties with brown pattern to tie it in.. I find the split tow perfect for these outfits..

I have been looking at the GC myself as well, but I have no idea about sizing, some say it fit like CJ (i.e. full size from US), some say it fits like EG (i.e. half size from US).

Aha good to know, would you say the bespoke last is particular narrow? I am 9.5D US to slightly wide, I have 348 from CJ in 8.5E UK which fits me well in boots (Northcote/Tetbury), but simply too painful in balmoral (Hallman/Westbourne) for me to ever buy one and try to see if they stretch enough to work. I have the same problem with GG, i.e. MH71 in 9E UK works, but TG73 in 9E UK doesn't.

From the same seller Alden Men's Tassel Moccasin Burgundy Loafer - 8.5 3E. Listed as used, but most would describe it as new. Seems like a great deal at 180.00!

BNIB Allen Edmonds Burgundy Shell Leeds (9.5B)

$260 BIN.

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Allen-Edmonds-9-5-Horween-Derby-/261264845029?pt=US_Men_s_Shoes&hash=item3cd49928e5

 

0 feedback though. But eBay covers purchase price in case anything goes wrong- so maybe it's worth it?
