    Simply put, the heel opening is too large.

    I'm not saying that you're wrong about the heel, but I've found that the double leather sole is very stiff and unwilling to bend. This led to some heel slippage in my pair while I broke them in which has gone away now that the sole has gotten more flexible. But YMMV.

    Haha, and you know, there is a possibly that you are indeed correct. I am simply at an irritating point in regards to purchasing shoes, in that none of them fit the way I would like. My alden's for example slipped in the heel when I got them and still slip when broken in. My AE's are too wide in the lower heel area, and do not slip as much, but result in blisters. I have tried tongue pads, heel grippers, etc. The result is that I have no "SF approved" shoes I can wear an entire day without issue, which has lead to some (I admit it) paranoia on my part. I love all my choices, but despite the fit. Hence, I resolved to get rid of what I have an start over focusing on one shoe at a time and attempting to visit the places people on SF said had "great shoe fitters" such as Nick at Moulded Shoe.

    Anybody know where I can find Crockett & Jones for Ralph Lauren Chukka Cordovan in US 9.5/UK 9? I did find this Ralph Lauren Collection Men's Enville Chukka DWS for $279 calf. I can't do these because I need double leather soles for my bony feet, but they look really decent. Says American Made ....

    While I wasn't in the hunt this time - I love B&S when I win, I hate it when I lose.

    Finally broke in the double leather sole, pretty comfy now except a tiny bit of heel slip

    If anyone has a shoe in the Marlow range or the Lindrick in a UK10 for sale, PM me. Most of my interest is aimed towards a penny/tassell loafer, but wingtip offers are welcome too!

    Anyone wanting a 10% discount on Ralph Lauren on line might want to use code BZR8233

    I believe the code will work for Marlows as well

    Does anybody know of a good cobbler in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area who does recessed metal taps. I sent a couple pair of Marrlows back to Crocett & Jones NY to have done and they charge $60 per pair. Then you have the long wait with shipping back and forth with additional shipping costs/insurance.

    I call local cobblers and ask if they do recessed or flush mounted metal taps and they don't have a clue as to what I am talking about. I hear Nicky B or V's NYC is around $35 a pair.

    Crockett & Jones use a tap called a LULU from France I believe and they don't have to cut the toe stitching. Help! Even an LA guy would work better than NY.

    I'm a perfect 11.5 D on the AE 5 last. Not sure if these would be too big. Worth a shot? I guess we'll see how high the price goes.
