unlined snuff suede PTBs and a blurry Seamaster Chrono on a NATO strap. I have #8 and #4 straps but my wrist is in between sizes so the heavy watch is stretching the hole. Might go back to the bracelet.

I would personally wait knowing that D is a common size they would stock and BB is probably going to have sales in Thanksgiving and X'mas.

Just in case I have to jump in the shower and keep track of the time.

Touché, Be! haha. There are just some things I can't bring myself to spend money on. $100 is the limit for a strap and even that is a stretch. $70 is good for a nice Hirsch or similar. I'll save the extra $100 from not buying a shell strap and put it towards shell shoes!

BB King, like the Jazz trumpet guy?  JK.

 

Bring them to your local BB and have them exchange for a D.  They did this for me recently on a pair of Unlined LHS.  I bought a 9.5 to lock in the price, but needed a 9.  They had one shipped to me from a different BB store.

 

I recommend going to the store physically, rather than just calling.  They are more likely to spend the effort if you are standing in front of them.

Nice crema on your double espresso!  Some among us use the term so generously, they might even refer to that as "patina".

Michigan Planner, I just picked up the AoC #8 wingtip boots as well. They look great, pics will be up this weekend

This is one of the better dressed threads on the internet. Well done, gentlemen

Anybody have a favorite shoe tree that is as good as the Alden ones? Leather Soul has good ones (that are made at the same place they make the Alden shoe trees), but they're currently out of my size.

Tifosi, you have a sharp and thrifty attitude toward fiduciary expenditures. Bravo young conservative.
