Very Jazzy, Sir.  Especially with that hat!

 

Have you considered getting a cane?

 

 



This is just one of the reasons why I hate button-fly pants.

fly choice is srs bsns!

Duly noted.  Luckily I haven't had that problem.

 

Still I think the benefits of the zip-fly outweigh the risks.

I have a cane somewhere from my college days. Should look for it.

Agree with you on that second shot. It's a little racy the way the fly is presented. Apologies to the gentlemen here. A definite hazard of that style of shooting one's feet.

Now, it's been a while since I've worn shell - and this is the first time I gave the Barrie last a second chance after all these years... anyhow - the fit was spot on when I first put them on this morning and obviously I've since settled into the shoe and it's become much roomier. What are some things you Barrie experts usually do? I noticed this is more evident in my shell shoes. My grants felt really big too....

On some barrie LWB I can double up on thin dress socks to take up the volume. If you have slightly thicker socks this would work also. I find this preferable to insoles as it does not cause the heel to slip up. Tape a tongue pad in there as another experiment.

On the subject of C&Js vs. Alden cigar...

C&Js seem to lighten dramatically in comparison. No cigar in my collection yet but here's a natural light shot of my Marlows. They are much closer to a Ravello or wiskey now

Always nice to see the UPS dude bearing one of these at the end of a long work week...

PERFECT, speaking of C&J... (xpost)

So I have some fit questions to come to you pros with...
I am typically a 9D - flatter, somewhat wide feet due to a lower arch. Low volume foot too, as in it's not super thick!

Anyhow enough about my feet - today I went to RL to try on Marlows and I tried on the 8.5 and 9 in the PTB offering, and a 9 in the SWB.

While the 9's both fit pretty well as far as width goes, the length was a bit much my foot slid forward. However in the 8.5 everything BUT the width was perfect. I just felt my pinky toes were a bit cramped. I don't know if that's something that will be able to somewhat get stretched out with wear, what do you all think?

(Included picture)

^ I doubt that will stretch. The Marlows do have a slightly smaller toe box.

For what it's worth, I'm an 11 in Marlow and 10.5 in Barrie

These Marlows are starting to rent space in my head. How would you rate the comfort level on these shortwings?

Damn sounds like I might have to snipe a 9 huh?
post #46604 of 86706
Thinking of pre-ordering the Tobacco Chamois Longs from Leffot.

post #46605 of 86706
Those are nice. Did you notice the "single heavy leather outsole?" What is that?
