I have seen too many Park Avenues with baggy, ill-fitting suits. Way to pull these off in style! The BB styles work for me in some cases because I have a narrower foot (C width) but the B width is too narrow.
The case has been made for cork over poron, but poron is not all bad and some prefer the added cushion.
Thanks to fellow members here that informed me about the Brooks Brothers corporate discount, I managed to grabbed a pair of the BB-AE captoes and returned the full price Park Avenue I got two days ago. Technically they look the same but the BB fits me better width wise and saves me quite a lot. I read somewhere that BB-AE uses lower graded leather than the original AE but the leather from both pairs look and feel the same for me. Could someone shed light on this?Warning: Spoiler!
