    you have $800 to spend (on shoes nonetheless) and are acting like a damsel in distress?? What is your quandry?

    Pick out some shoes, buy them, and enjoy.

    try them both on, see which you like better. At this price range, its more personal preference than a huge difference in quality.

    True - hence C&J is no option for me due to the lack of different widths

    They do make different widths but only in certain styles not in all of their shoes. Most of their shoes are made slightly narrower and slightly wider than a medium to accomodate most people. Go to their site and look through all of the shoes and see which fitting different models come in. Their usual width is an E ( a US C) but they do carry a B (a US AA) a C ( a US A) a D ( a US B) and an F ( a US D). They'll also carry a G (E) and an H (EEE)

    Click the selection and then the fitting at the bottom and see what comes up

    Go for the EG's at that price point.

    Why has no-one mentioned Cleverley. Their semi-bespoke line is extremely elegant.

    With about £500 to spend you can probably look at the following

    Loakes
    Barkers
    Crocketts
    Eddy Green
    Cleverley RTW (Rebadged Crocketts & Eddy Greens)
    Trickers
    John Ruston Shoes
    W S Fosters
    Alfred Sargent MTO (they visit Leffot New York too)
    Cheany
    Church's

    I'm fairly sure that WS Fosters and Cleverley will also ship around the world too

    Meh, at his price point, I don't see why he would consider loake, church's or trickers. Cheaney imperial (if they still have that line) would be a minimum.

    I am aware that a narrow or wide option exists for some models, but so far I have not seen a narrow option for any of the handgrade shoes.

    I don't believe they offer the handgrades RTW in anything other than medium fittings. But I believe they will MTO them.

    C&J Westbourne for $550 ($275 on sale from Barneys if you can find your size). Pocket the rest.

    I've been thinking about shoes over the last few days and most of the shoes I have seem to be Loakes. Stylish mid range shoes which look and feel good and although you should look after them, it's not the end of the world if they get scuffed. They start about £100 or about $150. You can buy more expensive shoes and you can certainly but cheaper brands but Loakes offer value for money every time IMO.
