Thank for your input. I may go the route suggested ordering 2 sizes then returning the one that doesn't fit.
Any recommendations where to find these shoes cheaper than shoe mart and with a good return policy?
High praises. Years ago before I knew better I had a pair of Alden snuff suede LHS resoled at what was supposed to be a good cobbler in Atlanta. They bucthered my shoes, removed the cork replaced it with a piece of felt, awful soles and left edge dressing on the suede.
I've recently found a great cobbler in the Atlanta area and I'm recommending him to anyone looking for good quality work. He resoled my LHSs with quality JR soles and heels using brass nails, replaced the missing heel pads and cleaned up the suede. I've no idea what the cost was, he's just started smoking a pipe and I bartered him one of my Castellos.
As I said, if your looking for quality work in the Atlanta area you can find it at Village Shoe Service in Tucker. Here's a link to a pic of my shoes from his facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=630749176937007&set=a.406375726041021.101073.165782983433631&type=1&theater
