    Wow, those Daltons are purdy! Shouldn't be too hard for you to flip them.

    Speaking of rain and split toes. Went with the Bourbon Portland today. I was resistant to split toes in the pass, but have really come around lately. Now, I really want a super casual heavy soled boot in this style...

    Stunning boots on this page. The natural shell Daltons are beautiful and I wish they were an 11D.

    @middlepP Those split-toe Portlands are awesome. :slayer:

    Great make-up. To think I just missed the MTO heyday.

    These are really really nice. I have calf in 9D and they are a bit snug... Surely 9.5D in shell would be better, right?! (I have to nail down my size before I jump into the shell game.) What are you wanting to sell these for? I imagine these should go pretty quickly.

    I'm committed to wearing mine year round. Together, we can make it happen!!

    Thanks, Chris!

    Cheers to Ian Fleming :)
    Also you got me thinking. I'll need shoes that start with T and F and I'll be able to wear one for each day of the week. Or just wear Daltons everyday because boots are awesome?

    Cheers. I love that Camberley! Seeing it in the movie was what made me jones for a monkstrap boot. I ordered one MTO from another brand and I'm quite stoked.

    Thanks for the reply Neo1.

    One thing I forgot to mention and may shed some light as to why I was considering sizing down to 9.5 and in a width I couldn't try on in person is that I think the balls of my feet may be about 0.25-0.5" behind where I think the balls of the foot should be (where the shoe starts curving into the taper) on the 10D. But I'm not sure how important this is.

    **WARNING, WALL OF TEXT**

    Question for you fine gentleman. What got you into finer footwear? My conversion happened just recently. After I graduated from college, I got a cushy job that has a horrible dress code (depending on your view.) I've stated before, but you can wear a v-neck down to your belly button, jeans tight enough to give yourself a vasectomy, and shoes with holes in them so your toes stick out. (Serious outfit, and sadly I didn't send him home because I knew how behind the rest of the team would get for making up his work.) Anyway, I'd go out with friends and start to see how people with "real" jobs would dress and it was an eye opener. So Black Friday rolls around and I hit up Banana Republic. Mind you, their stuff is/was 20x better than the stuff I had been wearing, that's how bad my situation was.

    For Christmas, I told my dad I'd like a few dress shirts so we go to Nordstrom. I get fitted for my size, try on a few, and the lady asks if I need these right away. I say no, she says they go on sale after Christmas (awesome for her to say that ps.) Next errand was heading to another store that my dad had bought me some dress cords a few years prior and I needed them tailored. I remember being in this place but not liking it. So I start looking around and notice sport coats. Grab one, try it on, feels fine, look at the price...8k. It was then I realized I wasn't at Nordstrom anymore.

    My dad hands me another dress shirt to try on, and as soon as I did, I could immediately feel the quality difference between the Nordstrom one and this one. As we're about to leave I notice their shoe selection. And about had a heart attack at the pricing. I honestly can't remember the brand but I'm sure it was Italian. (I looked it up later, Di Bianco.)

    Long story short, after that trip I started researching and was mind blown at what is actually out there for men's style. Lucky for me, there's an AE store 15 minutes from my work and home. THEN I learn about the shoebank and my life is now over.

    Side question, how the hell do you married guys do this???

    TL;DR: What got you into wearing shoes of better quality?
