I received my Paul Stuart a.k.a. Grenson Masterpiece double monks in cognac museum calf. This could be the best $169 I've spent on shoes! Like others have commented I should have considered buying everything in my size, but alas I was unsure of the fit. I find that I tend to wear 10.5 in finer shoes, especially loafer or monks. I think this results from a combination of better last shapes for my foot and quality leather that molds to the foot a bit. After a full day of wear, I can say these monks were no exception and fit great. The fit quality and construction of the shoe is great and I would highly recommend to others. If I get a chance this weekend, I will post some comparison photos of my JL Welham's in museum calf versus the PS Grensons. My quick take is that JL's seem to have a wider range of light to dark tones, have more refined stiching and take a better shine; Despite all that, I still really like the Grensons and expect they will get a lot of wear. I think it is safe to say I will be an aggressive buyer in round 2 of the sale.
I also have a pair of size 11 alligators coming today if they do run 1/2 size large I might be on the look out for any one selling a size 10 they picked up at the sale.
Also thanks Ron/ThinkDerm for the great sale and timely PSA!
