    This makes me think I definitely need to try the 108. I like the 201 and 511, but just adore the 333. The 65 just doesn't work right for my foot in bals, but has all the models (until I accept that I need to buy all the Indy line shoes). I still haven't tried the 1943, but I'd really like to because I think the Cornwallis might be the dress shoe I want to bridge Fifth Aves and Strands.

    What's everyone's opinion of the university? I really like them but don't see much love on the forum.

    Oh yeah - also don't think I'd use it as a wet weather shoe, even if it's brouged fifteen ways to Tuesday. [​IMG]

    Based on what I've seen on this forum, as well as the old, original thread, opinions on the Uni have been overwhelmingly favorable.

    Thats good to hear. I really like them. I guess they just aren't as common. I have them in walnut, chili and black. Rubber soles are what I typically go after so the Uni as you called it was a good option.

    My new Warton maiden voyage today...

    Question... in this type of shoe is it fashionable to have a tiny bit of sock showing even while you are standing or no?

    For biz casual I go back and forth with unrolled vs one roll on my chinos for all my AE shoes.

    Forgive me as I seem to have mixed up Monday and Wednesday this week.

    This week is unintentionally turning into oxblood week for me. Ascher in oxblood with socks. Anyone else's best time of day deciding what shoes to wear? (I have to add what cologne to wear as well for me. I have too many addictions I think)

    I've about pulled the trigger on them in walnut 50 times. Soon to be 51...

    That's what I expected... a slightly roomier feel than my 65, which fit comfortably snug on me. I'm wearing a pair of Hopkinsons in my 65 last size and they are possibly 1/4 size too long. No telling how a half size down would feel.

    It looks nice in person. I have to say the chili is my favorite though.

    The University is kind of an odd looking shoe in my opinion. I do think the chili is probably the best color for it.

    I like it. I've been kicking around the idea of doing a shell MTO on it. Maybe it's because AE doesn't have many shortwings [​IMG]

    Get ye to Vass!

    I'm not generally a fan of U wings. The only one I've seen that I liked was the Carmina bal boot.
