Nice Bay Area set up Namor.... Perfect!
Me likes the RL britches with Cigar Bomb Ass Boots! Well done as usual.....
I have the same experience. My typical dress shoe size is 8D. I was fitted by the Alden store in SFO and the associated let me try the 8C and it fit really well. I've been using my 990 for about 3 months now with no issues. And yes, looking for C is very difficult to find. So the next time I find myself in the city, I may try a 7.5D and see if it works.
Just curious... Question for gforce, do you have experience with the Leydon last? Did you just use the standard width for you? Unfortunately I don't have any model outside of my 990 and I have my eye on a model from Epaulet that is on Leydon. Want to avoid a trip into the SFO store with the intention of just trying a shoe out and buying from another store.
thanks for the kind words gentlemen
ravello kind of day...........
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Those are just gorgeous! I don't have any ravello and am incredibly envious. I'm at the point in my boot collection (and also with the current prices of shell) that I am being very particular and discerning in what I buy now. But I know that if I find a boot in ravello in my size, there will be no hesitation.
I second El Argentino's comment --- a worn-in boot has so much more character (as long as you don't need it for dressier occasions).
