Going back to grenson at bennie's - Page 3

They really are a 11D if they are marked as such. I wear 11D in ae, alden, bally, etc... and the 11D penny loafer fits me like a glove.

I really hope that Bennie's gets more; that it tries to get all 500 pairs of Grensons that may be available to it. I have been dealing with the store for 30 years and the service and attitude are great. Although I sound like I may have a financial interest in Bennie's, I SWEAR that I do not, nor am I related by blood or marriage to anyone there; I just like dealing with them. Before the latest bonanza in J&M Handgrades and the Grensons, I bought my Allen Edmonds and Aldens at Bennie's. I think that it is one of the largest sellers of Allen Edmonds in the USA. It has a huge stock and can also order anything not in stock. Although it is required to show the list pice for Allen Edmonds, it always gave me a discount and will do that for other forum members too. In the past, Bennie's stocked Alden, but I think that some competitors complained to Alden that Bennie's was discounting, so it no longer regularly stocks them. However, Bennie's can still special order any Alden model and will give the same AE discount on them for me and other forum members too.

No. 4 here, http://www.benniesshoes.com/grenson10.5.htm is what I have called the Scottish ballerina shoe in a couple of prior posts. Actually, I have discovered that that is pretty much what it is; it is called a Ghillie. See the brown shoe at: http://www.tartanweb.com/brogues.php The strange thing is that I really like it, although my family name, Pollock, does not conjure up visions of the bonnie lasses, the moors, etc. Like most of the other Grensons, it is far more attractive live than in the pictures. I find it virtually irrestible, but I need to figure out what else I can wear it with, other than a kilt, as I do not believe that my legs would do that oufit justice. As you remember, I ran afoul of many forum members previously, when I opined that a proper gentlemen never wear shorts in public (especially when he has skinny, hairy legs like mine). Any suggestions?

I picked up several pairs of Grensons, all 10Ds, and my Stowe was considerably narrower than the others. However, it is so beautiful that, although it is snug, I can live with it. Actually, it feels pretty good, more than acceptable. Had they had another one a 1/2 size up, I certainly would have tried it on, to see which one fit better, but none was available.

I have those exact shoes on my feet right now, but in a 10D. It is model number 8001.17 and looks just like the pictures of the Oundle to me. From looking over all the pictures posted and the shoes at the store, it looks like Bennie's has more Masterpiece models, in more colors, than are listed on the websites for Grenson, Pediwear, New & Lingwood, Paul Stuart, ShoesDirect, Shoes Intl, and SolelyShoes combined.
