@robster35 100% agreement with backinthejox. Do me a favor, read some fit guide that someone clearly wasted their time on then ask me the questions 😉

Considering grabbing a pair of these from Nordstrom Rack's website. What do you think of them? Are they basically Fifth Avenues?

I've recently owned a pair of those. They are on the 8 last, so a little more narrow than the 5ave. Great color though... It fits a wardrobe heavy with inky blues and deep greys. Could probably do black trousers with them, too. Great shoe.icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

When they brought out the Dundee 2.0, it was available in calf, shade, or shell.

Have never heard of fit was any different.


Why does the Katmai never get any love?

@Neo1 - Those are all great-looking shoes, but the Club Monacos and Ralph Laurens aren't available in my size.  I don't think of the Kenwood as a downgrade, but its definitely more casual.  I considered the Brooks Persidio, but they're similar-enough to my dark brown McGraws that I'm worried they'll be redundant.  I think burgundy shell and tan saddle in that style are both far more casual than dark brown, which is why I'm interested . . . if they Kenwoods had tan stitching, instead of white contrast stitching, I'd almost definitely grab them.  Unlined shoes in that sort of leather feel like a well-oiled baseball mitt.

How casual do you want to get?  I'd look at the Addison, Club Monaco South Beach and RL Shanley.  You made me think of that f-ing Dornoch I could never get to fit either.

Glad they listen to their customers.  Now if they'd only eliminate the new piping on the Carlyle...

I would NOT recommend jumping over to the Presidio - that's probably one of the narrowest shoes I've ever tried.  Absolute glove fit for me, but I'm a C width and wearing a D if that gives you any indication.  Good consolation prize for the McGraw not working out (which was the better shoe anyway).

In my opinion, the 333 was unfairly criticized. Side-by-side with the 65, I think it looks pretty decent. It's a different look, but isn't that why we have more than one pair of shoes?
