So, gentlemen, sadly, my trip to Armoury NY yielded no dice. I couldn't even fit my toes into the Rain 10.5 and 11 D Carmina U-tip they stock (gorgeous shoe in tobacco suede, btw). Based on this, I doubt that even a stock Detroit would be wide enough for me. I need something between 1/4 to 1/2 inch wider than D Rain. Looks like I'm a true 3E.
So....if there are 5 other Rain 3E gents in here who would like to go in on an MTO derby, monk, or boot (I'm open to any possibilities except bals), let's join forces!
I'd be in for a cordovan brogued boot or derby shortwing, or perhaps a chukka? In any case, I'm interested, depending on design
