Thanks heelguy. Let me know when you're heading there, it would be cool to meet fellow DC Styleforum members, we can do a mini-Styleforum meetup at AH One! (I'm actually going there again this Saturday - besides shoes, Aram can fix leather goods - I'm picking up a pair of repaired suspenders.)
I live in MD so Springfield is a trip. Maybe one Saturday in March. Thinking of doing an Arran.
Great choice! What size did you end up going with? Did you also order the same size in the Deco as these on the TG73?
Hi mw313, thanks!
These recent pairs are 11.5Es, though I'm sort of on the cusp between 11E and 11.5E. There's still some room in both shoes' toeboxes, and I can wear thin and thick socks with both. The Connaughts are much more form fitting than the Wiltshires though. After discussing with Aram at AH One, I decided to go with an 11E for the incoming Deco Wildes, as I intend to wear thin socks with these, and believe the one-piece toungue-apron-toe box, with easier fitting blucher "wings", will wear against my feet comfortably...
