OTOH, if you can't actually afford any of the 10 different models you want, it's a convenient way to ensure you don't rashly decide to go into massive debt.

Nope. Try adding to your cart there and for many of the sizes you will get a message saying "Sorry, not stocked".

Namor is correct- they were MTO back when that was still a possibility...and they are on the dreaded Barrie last...which I do not mind really....

I'm an 8E in the Indy and have 2 pairs of 9.5 Florsheim by DB (the saddle and the buck). I got them a half size too long to adjust for the width. So I'd add 1 size to your Trubalance size if you are a D width.
post #22688 of 122416
so go with an 8.5 instead of an 8? one full size?
post #22689 of 122416
That's my experience with them. Florsheim and Cole Haan both seem to fit more of my "sneaker" size than true dress shoe size. YMMV.

Barrie and trubalance = 11.5
Florsheim for DB = 11.5
TTS = 12

i had a different experience. I am a 11 barrie, and can wear 10.5 or 11d in trubalance, depending on the sock. I have the navy shell DB by Florsheim in 10.5 d, though it is a dress sock only fit. i could probably do 11 in this shoe as well for a more forgiving fit.

the answer is that I wear roughly the same size in the DB by Florsheim as I do in alden.

Holy smokes.  You're right.  And, actually cheaper with no tax and free shipping.

You, sir, are an evil genius.  I can't argue with that logic.

I've had the same problem with my emails.  But, I haven't tried calling them.

In my experience, Shoemart is terrible in responding to emails. I had to call them to get an answer. When they finally did answer my email weeks later, they got the answer wrong. They told me the boot was on a different last than it was actually on. Pretty bad customer service there.

Thought lots of folks on this thread would be interested in this amazing Ravello preorder that Mike is doing. Epaulet is killing it with the special makeups.
