 Could you just read what's written on the box regarding the colour, or did you receive a hanging paper with shoe details?

In terms of fit..realizing everyones foot is different...the 7000 is actually I believe a roomier fit esp on the instep. Even though the toe is more tapered to me it feels like its even roomier in the forefoot. Dont know the exact measurements but the 7000 is a deceptively roomy fit despite the tapered toe. I wear EG 202 8.5E(often with mto extra instep) but the 7000 is loose on the same size. I need to size down half. Its def a longer last. As everyones foot is diff i would recommened trying it out. In my experience, the 7000 is more tapered but actually a very comfortable last.
Those claret misty warwick derbies look very nice. Congrats and enjoy

Thank you for all that info gents! I really appreciate it!

I had these in mind but I am guessing they would be too narrow?

The 8000 is far off the 202. Personally, I would never purchase them with the 202 comparison in mind.

My experience with ordering from Nick is great. Though I believe he has a return fee policy in case you do not like the shoes .. So, choose wisely.

Hey guys, just picked up these yesterday at the factory store. Trying them at home now. Tell me what you guys think! Still unsure if I should keep them or sell them. Maybe if anyone's interested you can help me decide:p

^ If those are black just resell them. Not worth keeping them, IMO. Buckles are also too shiny and distract from the overall good proportions of the shoe.

Good kop, well done. Regardless, if you decide to sell them do it on B & S please. Thanks

Yeah they are black. Really? I was thinking it could be useful for an evening situation, with a blue double breasted suit I have... i find the Parisian brown Williams a little unsuitable for a more formal evening occasion.

I also wouldn't wear a double breasted suit with the double monks - feels kinda buckled too much. But that's just me.

Only unload them if you can score. Not sure what are the prices in the FS these days, but if you paid those around 440 pounds (that was the price last time I was purchasing there, heard they raised the prices to 480 now) it could be challenging to flip them. Happened to me with couple of pairs I didn't like too much. Otherwise just keep & enjoy them, after all you are the only who need to be happy, not others.
