Thanks! I'm just glad they've lightened up in color. When they first arrived, I was a bit dismayed that they were almost dark to the point of being black. Now they're clearly reddish-burgundy, and the color variation is drool.gif

The Plaza last is not as attractive for us wide fitted cloven hoof souls.

Being one of the unfortunate wide-footed. I have found plaza just fine in an"e" width. To paraphrase today's kids, I shun those retailers who fail to offer their plaza make-ups in the real man's (that is, "e") width.

On my feet, and it may be because they aren't particularly large, the plaza looks really duck like. A bigger issue is actually finding them.

Edit:

TSM does seem to have a bunch of sizes in stock in the CXL LHS... including my size. Hmmm....

Thanks for the head's up MP! Didn't see any stock with Unionmade but I'll contact them maybe they have a batch coming in. Never tried to Copley last though... any input? With the Whiskey LHS a ways away, maybe the NTL CXL will be a shorter wait. TSM's version has some dark sole which I don't really like; besides, they do not carry 6.5D... frown.gif

faux "cashmere" stretchy jeans -- like the girls wear -- in a thread about Alden shoes?

 

Is this a joke?

 

Or is this one writer's suggestion for how to deal with the cordovan shortage?  Stretchy shoes?  The article does talk about "dog days."  <Rim shot>
