Ralph lauren dress shoes

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Curious about these shoes on STP. For those who have experience with RL dress shoes, do you know how the width of their typical lasts are? I need something with wider cut and these shoes look more like narrow cuts. Or if someone have the exact shoes as shown (Middlesex), your opinion would be much appreciated. Thanks a lot. http://www.sierratradingpost.com/pro...d_basket=64679

Any idea who makes them, btw?

They do look quite nice. I was thinking about buying a pair myself, but before that I want to listen to what our resident shoe horses have to say

I'm interested now, too... Are these the Crockett & Jones-produced RL shoes? EDIT: Hey, weren't they one hundred forty-seven dollars, thirty seconds ago?

I seem to remember that too - perhaps we've got a STP employee reading our board? Or perhaps it's just a coincidence. They definitely look like the Crockett & Jones-made shoes but I can't say for certain from the pictures. Most RL shoes are ordered in an English E-width which is a medium.

Oh smoke, they increased the price. It was indeed in the $140s before. They also increased the prices of these Corneliani suits. They were $320s before. I was really indecisive about buying the RL shoes yesterday. If they don't fit I'd be throwing $35 shipping fees to Canada, plus the complication with the sales taxes and the brokerage fees. The main issue is that I need wider cut shoes, currently wearing 10.5 EEE for my AE shoes. But I know some shoes do fit me well in their medium sizes. A. Harris, do you think their size 11 would be at least 4.25" wide in the flex area? And do you guys think they are C&J? http://www.sierratradingpost.com/xq....uct.htm

Btw, they cut the price to $140s yesterday before noon. Same thing with the Corneliani suits.

The price of over $400 for a super 100s Corneliani suit sounds expensive to me, especially if they are over a year old. Over here (Netherlands), you pay about Euro 400 for super 150s to super 170s Corneliani on sale, and that is current season. Then again, the cost of European goods are cheaper here to start off.

I was tempted to buy when they were selling for $320s yesterday, plus I found 10% off coupon (and when they still had my size, it was snapped pretty quickly yesterday). Then again it's probably better to save my money for a top of the class suit, when they are selling at reasonable prices, that is.

Are you talking about the width of the footbed or the sole?

I draw the measurement from the outsole. What's the best way to measure from the footbed?
post #12 of 13
I'd say they probably do measure around 4.25". But that measurement is of minimal value, as the width has much to do with the trimming (or in the case of some Italian shoes, the extension) of the welt. I haven't figured out a good way of measuring the footbed yet.

Why, you just rip the upper off of the sole, of course.
