I'm very comfortable in an AE 9.5D but a Cheaney 9.5D felt a little cramped both in length and around the toes. Hope this is useful.

Thanks- that's what I figured. I have a pair of Cheaneys with similar markings so that's how I listed them on the 'bay.

Look me up! The thrifting won't be great, but it might be interesting for you!

 

 

 I can't say there will be tons of shopping involved... I will, however hopefully get to ride some of the major climbs from the Tour de France and the Giro d'Italia; do some hiking, see some sites, drink some good beer, get some real espresso, and get to run through the hills of Austria singing "The hills are alive with the sound of music..."

Anyone in the Rockville/Bethesda/North DC area willing to share a spot or two that's open late? Usual quid pro quo applies: Automatic proxy on stuff your size. PM me if willing to share.

Today's roundup was really good too thumbs-up.gif

Has anyone noticed that the recent Banana Republic pants are taking a lot of queues from Incotex? I'm no longer excited seeing the size tag on split waistbands frown.gif


Todays pick ups:

Jcrew Italian desert boots (these are actually pretty nice) for the GF, John Varvatos cords sz 50, Cantarelli windowpane dual vented SC - any clue as to how old this is?
