And thank you, good sir.

Now that I think about it, he was *technically* correct. They were a Barrie last and D width and since most (if not all) J. Crew makeups are on the barrie last, he's not exactly telling customers inaccurate info.
Glass half full...
I used to think the "b" stood for Barrie as well. A styleforum member corrected me and let me know the C stands for the heel width. Makes sense given all my C/E Barrie shoes
Thanks! Yes, I wear them dressed up or down... They work well either way...
Has anyone tried using navy wax on black shell? The hanger project claims the same logic as a midnight blue tuxedo...makes the black look more black in low light. The site also claims it gives the black a bit of depth in normal light. I have black and navy tuxedos and much prefer the navy as it looks richer at night, so I'm hoping there's some truth to the claim. If no one has experience with this I'll post some before and afters once I try it.
If Kirby makes a claim, then I would have no problem believing it. He's a bigtime shoe aficionado like all of us and an approved SF affiliate with a great reputation.
Regarding the 975's though, I think it must be black. Any reason why the brown was recommended?
