post #50851 of 87735

Hello everyone,

 

I'm supersede, and I joined this blog to ask these questions.

 

Please give me your expertise and help me to find the shoes (and briefcase) that I desire. Thanks.

 

I wear a size 10 B in the Allen Edmonds "Grayson" (or newer model "Adams") tassel loafer, and they are the most comfortable shoes I own. I wear a size 10.5 B in the Alden tassel loafer (whose name, if there is one, I don't know), and they are the most beautiful shoes I own. I wear a size 10 B in the Johnston & Murphy "Westchester" tassel loafer, and they are fine shoes too, but I prefer the previous two.

 

I would like to find a barely-worn pair of tassel loafers or "full strap" penny loafers (by Alden or Allen Edmonds, which also calls its full strap model the "Westchester"). I am also interested in the Allen Edmonds "Patriot" penny loafer, preferably with a leather and rubber combination sole and heel. I would like to find a black or a wine/burgundy pair.

 

In addition, please tell me what size to order in the Gokey Sauvage oxford, casual moccasin-style shoe (sold new by Orvis), which I have been told requires one half size larger than usual and one size wider. If this advice is correct, then I figure I should get a 10.5 C in that casual shoe. I would have to pay $50 more for a new pair ($275), because the "regular" pair ($225) sizes begin with a "D" width.

 

Finally, I am interested in finding a classic-styled briefcase, with the single clasp flap, single handle, which reflects quality craftsmanship. Rawlings used to offer a "legal-styled" brief bag, new, for around $500, but no longer offers that model.

 

Best wishes,

 

supersede

I bought them from a fellow SF member, they are on the Aberdeen last. I've a fondness for NSTs, just like the looks and the stitching. Would love to have a whisky or ravello pair.

How does the Aberdeen last fit? I wear a 9d on the Hampton last...what would I wear for the Aberdeen?

Looking great!! 

 

When possible can you re-post your shots of the J Crew suede/shell saddle shoe? I was looking for them but cant seem to find them.

gaseousclay I believe that both the Aberdeen and Hampton fit true to size, so a 9D.

The ravello NST on the Aberdeen (TSM has them - sometimes) is one of my favorite Aldens. I was fortunate enough to snag my size some months ago.

I don't recall having seen a pair of whiskey NSTs on the Aberdeen, but certainly one could be out there . Anyone own a pair?

Looks as if they have both the Ravello and Whiskey on their site along with Cigar. There's a nice looking pair on ebay for $525 in #8, but there 10.5 and I take 11.

Only the Ravello on Aberdeen last.  Cigar and Whiskey is Barrie last.  I have the Ravello NST and Whiskey NST.  Would love the Cigar.  I also have a pair of NST on Barrie last in Color #8 headed my way from the irregular list at TSM.

 

 

 

See Ya,

Steve

I traditionally haven't been able to wear the LHS because of tightness in the vamp (I have a high instep)...

Do you think going up one width would solve this issue? I see a 9.5EE LHS in cigar available on The Shoe Mart (I wear 9.5E in Barrie). Worth a shot?

Worst case scenario is it costs you $7.00 to try it.  As rare as Cigar is I would try it.

 

Good luck!
