Having the one-piece belt is - at once - something to be proud of (rare) and ashamed of (cost of $425). biggrin.gif

Kudos to you! Not sure if I'd have the wearwithall to pull the trigger on that belt.

Right on my brother. Right on! Yeah, and we were going to bring the nuclear subs home, have flying cars, and vacation on the moon. "I have a dream today ..." Truth be told MP my mother wouldn't let me get any tattoos, something about Satin. Lol.

Yes - I wear both vintage brands TTS (or TTS less one width) - 9.5D or 9.5C, and Barrie 1/2 size down (9D).

Tru dat MrDV. You can start wearing that double-breasted suit again, it's back, though Prince Charles and his father never stopped. The pleated wool, cashmere, and silk Santorelli dress slacks I prefer come with a pretty generous leg opening by today's standards, cuffed of course. One doesn't want to look like Crockett and Tubbs from "Miami Vice".

1) Call around
2) Monitor this thread very closely

Due to the heads up earlier, I snagged a whiskey PTB (a shoe I have been looking for for over a year) from Alden DC in my size. They claimed they "just got them in" but who knows if that is true.

I have snagged numerous pairs due to heads up from this thread.

I went Barrie size on my late 80s or early 90s vintage Florsheim Kenmoore LWBs. Fit perfectly. TTS would've huge on me.
