    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Did a bit of searching, but can't find my exact sizing question regarding the 99 last for AS. I am a 9.5E U.S. - would I be safe with a 9 U.K. due to slightly wider foot? I don't currently own any AS.

    I ask because there is a pair I want on AFPOS, but they only have the 9UK in stock.

    I sized down from US 7E to UK 6.5 on the last 99, well, I wear all of my AS dress shoes in 6,5. But some other members have to size down a whole size in other AS lasts, only .5 in the 99 last. So I think a UK 9 should be fine.

    But you should always check with AFPOS with sizing by giving them your foot measurements to minimise disappointments.

    All of the sudden I find I have not just one pair due this week, but now I have two pair of Alfred Sargents due to arrive.

    The first was on sale, and a bit too good to pass up. (Cherry Moores)

    I just closed the deal on the second pair.

    The second pair is something I knew I wanted for over 6 months now.

    What do you think about wearing the AS Herrick with this 3 piece sharkskin suit from BB to my best friend's wedding? I will be one of four standing at the wedding (plus the groom makes 5).

    We are to dress ourselves. The only requirement was a medium gray suit and brown or burgundy shoes. He is providing the tie, and I think it will be a very micro-patterned medium blue Canali. It's not a formal wedding by any means. And anyone who has seen the Herrick in person knows they are dark brown and I think will work perfectly with mid to dark grey suits.

    I know this could get posted in the wedding forum, but I know ppl on this thread will be familiar with the AS Herrick.

    Thanks!

    Semi crappy pic of the suede semi brogue AS Herrick. It's even a tad darker IRL.

    thats a nice combo if appearances and the opinions of others matter to you. is this a fall wedding or summer? if you truly have license to dress however you like, go for something a little more, casual?

    I like that combo, but be careful not to out dress the groom.

    Does anyone have experience with AS 99 last and Carmina Simpson last? I am trying to decide between these two monks. Carmina would be $100 more.

    Same size with the Simpson and the AS 99.

    Carminas are sleeker/lighter and the AS feels more substantial. I prefer the latter.
