Also, AE's Ebay store has 10D Moras in brown suede for $129.
The Byron was made on the #4 last, which, alas, is now discontinued. Many A-E fans mourn its passing. (I would mourn it more, but I am pretty well equipped with A-Es for rest of my life.) It was my favorite A-E last. The Park Avenue is on A-E's longest and narrowest last, the #5. Many men find they have to go to a shorter and wide size than normal to get a good fit with the #5. However, I find both the #4 and the #5 to be a good fit on my feet in my normal size.
The Byron bit the dust some time ago. I inquired about getting a pair for my boy a year or so after it was discontinued, but the folks at Cabazon informed me that they had nothing in his size (10D) in the system. If you have a more offbeat size, the chances may be better that there are still some Byrons floating around. I've got 'em in black, dark brown and chili and still rather rue not getting them in brown suede when they were $129 on closeout back in late '03-early '04.
