Robert is great -- Just saw him yesterday.  I had no idea he was a cobbler!

I'm sure it has nothing to do with shoe trees. It has to do with the shape/size of the shoe and the size/shape of the foot. My feet are slightly different and the shoes

therefore crease/roll differently, no boneing and no shoe trees can change that. You just have to find the best last and size for your feet and enjoy the look. You could try to use some kind of insole.

Happy for a little sunshine this morning to show the whiskey.

(LBM and Zenith in RG don't hurt either)

Those spectators look fantastic. Elegant,and unique - a subtle bit nice shift from typical lace-up wingtip or captoe Spectators.

And what is wrong with a little pimpin'? Every real man has a little of that in him. (Although, truth be told, no Tru Mac Daddy would be caught dead in those - too conservative and not flashy enough.)

A few decades ago spectators, inckuding models like these, were relativrly common. Now they are exotic and get Walter Mitty all excited. The less adventurous or more staid types are not going to like them.

I hope your clientele has some taste, you sell the hell out of them and then do the right the right thing: get those shoes in "e" widths so us wide-footed pimps can go maccin' in style.

Must have knicked them pretty hard yesterday. Is there any way to fix this or am I out of luck?
