    I thought of one thats happened to me.

    Your asked how many shoes do you have and respond, " I have X pairs." Then after a short pause you say, "Oh, plus Y more, but I don't really count those."

    I do this all the time. The shoes that aren't on the racks (sneakers, hiking shoes, bad weather boots) don't get included in the mental inventory. And I'm still at 20-something pairs (plus one still hiding in the back of the closet until my wife is very happy with me).

    I don't think you can go wrong with either, but I prefer walnut

    I made a rookie mistake getting the Park Avenues in dark chili instead of the Fifths. Oh well.

    I prefer the FAs to the PAs in every single color. Yes, as a black cap toe the FA is technically a hair less formal than a black PA, but in the real world it's completely irrelevant. The punch cap adds just the right (minimal) amount of flair and distinguishes the wearer from the hordes wearing black stitch caps from Bostonian, Rockport, CH, etc.

    I'm starting to feel this way about the PA. I have black PAs as well as 5As and I'm thinking about selling my black PAs. I never reach for them except when I was a groomsman which is probably the only time now I'd wear it over the 5As. Brown antibe PAs might be hitting the bay shortly as well. I have 3-4 pairs that aren't listed in my signature I'm going to be selling too since they either don't fit me great or just don't make it out in rotation. Started out with PAs and now they are on the chopping block.

    I found they run small for me. I'm a 12.5D or 13C in the 5 last. The 13 D was too small for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I would be careful with ordering online based on their sizing guide based on the horror stories that I read here on a daily basis. I think you'd be better off to either find a store with a brannock device nearby or order one online and let us help before you spend a lot in shipping charges. I have no experience with the sizing guide, but would go with the fit they recommend instead of worrying about what the width of the shoe you order is.

    Sneakers, hiking shoes, bad weather boots??? Those never even enter the equation. You would have to add a plus Z in my case.

    Brown Strandmoks on a beautiful Friday in Charlotte! Will likely be in Kirkwoods or my trusty Rainbows for the rest of the holiday weekend.

    Cheers gents!
