I'm just going by this...

I don't know how many different /ths of brogues there are, actually, and I doubt all manufacturers/sellers refer to them the same way.

It's worth a look at Manton's first post in this thread from 2 1/2 years ago:

Unfortunately, the accompanying picture of a quarter brogue from Cleverley is very small and hard to make out, and most of the other pictures of other levels of broguing are gone. Reluctant as I am to take issue with anything shoe-related from Bengal-stripe, I believe that most would consider the EG Asquith a semi- or half-brogue, not a quarter-brogue, even though it lacks the brogued heel counter (as does the Etro shoe that started this discussion).

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=110132155181 Currently at $10. These are perhaps a little more worn than I'd normally buy, but I like the style - I believe they are technically 25/8ths brogues. The seller tells me the inside reads "12 D 16605 2 3560 3513": the #3 last is AE's widest, so these probably fit like a 12E.

Close, but not quite. They're 1/32 quasi-brogues once removed.

The Vass seems to be within Portnoy's size range, so good luck!

Hi.

I was just wondering which kind of tree people prefered using, i myself prefer to used the old wooden shoes trees, where you have to use wooden wedges to get the desired size, these are also particularly good when streaching in a new pair of shoes. I ave used springed, hinged and metal trees in the past, as they are more convienient and less time consuming to use. Maybee you could justify your choice. Just thought it might make a good topic for conversation.

Those look similar to my pair of Model 120 Wildsmiths. The only thing about mine is that the buckle is atached by a piece of elastic, which lets them down slightly, however a good shoe all round.

These went for $110 with BIN. And they were in my size. Seems to me that the buyer got a great deal.

Sarcasm in the quote you've cited, dkzzzz? Where? There wasn't 1 millionth of one scintilla of sarcasm intended in that remark--just a humorous reply to Jared who had posted a humorous response to the earlier discussion regarding quarter-brogues and what they really were! Check out a few posts back to see what I'm alluding to.
