    Saw that they had the Peal & Co perf. cap toe in EE width now. Would that be equivalent to C&J's G width?

    Winston is slipping. He's usually here in the first 5 minutes to correct us by saying the correct term is "channel-free" soles.

    Quote:I thought the proper term is closed-channel soles. There is still a channel there, it is just not visible, at least until you wear them 5 times.

    Did I use the term incorrectly? I'm referring to the non-exposed stitching on the sole.

    Not sure what photos are online and if shoes have changed recently but all peals by AS and C&J I have seen / owned had channeled soles. There are also peal ones made by loake and such that don't

    You are correct. It just seems we all refer to this simply as channeled soles, even if that is not correct.

    Great, thanks! I see what you are saying.
    I forgot to mention that the size 15 collar felt a little too snug too, so I'll size up to 15.5 still in extra slim fit to see how it goes.

    Be careful with going up a size. I went up (not on collar but on sleeve) because it's all they had in that particular style on sale (15 1/2 33) and 32 to 33 is almost unwearable on me. I'll have to go get it shortened and sides taken in, and it's a SF!

    What's the deal with the Americana trousers? How are they different from the regular chinos? Would they be a good solution for me if I'm looking for summer weight pants that I can pair with sport coats?

    BURNED! I thought about interjecting, but passed. I see I should have. I would have used closed or hidden channel soles for the ones where you can't see the stitching.

    Wow this is crazy. I'll keep my fingers crossed that my local store has 15/33 in stock so I can try both sizes on to compare the fit. Thanks for the heads-up.

    I don't see any peal & co with EE width. Do you think it was mismarked or did u see several sizes available in EE?

    edit: I actually see one pair in 11.5 EE but nothing else ;(

    If it's the brown perf. captoe, then it's the one i saw. Either way, that is a good sign for me, means they are starting to carry wide sizes for at least some shoes. I will have to wait to see what my SA says about their inventory in EE though. Here's hoping...

    that was it. you and I are in the same boat, as I'm a 3E in most AE lasts. I tried the u-throat wingtip in 8E and I could hardly get the damn thing on. I won't hold my breath, but I'm with you in hoping they start to carry some EE widths

    I saw that model at the store yesterday, the leather color looks fantastic in person, and yes the last was particularly pointy. Maybe one day...

    the funny thing is I researched C&J lasts to see which ones run wide and the 341 is one of the widest lasts they have. It made me wonder whether the peal and co shoes use UK width so it would be more like a D

    http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Class...t,pd.html?dwvar_531Q_Color=PINK&contentpos=20

    anyone know the difference btw the two? which is the more popular, more classic choice? which has the better shade of pink, ie not too pink somewhat subdued would be nice. also is supimo suppose to be thinner, softer, and less rigid? neither are non iron so I guess they are both less rigid then the non iron ones?


    for ex.like this one
    http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Supima[​IMG]-Cotton-Non-Iron-Extra-Slim-Fit-Button-Down-Dress-Shirt/612Q,default,pd.html?dwvar_612Q_Color=PINK&contentpos=3

    that pink to me is just too pink and not very pleasing...

    The first is oxford cloth, the second is not. The oxford cloth is a rougher material and more casual. The pinpoint is smoother and dressier. The second ones looks like a less vibrant pink so that might be better for more situations.
