    Personally I think chelseas are hideous and should not exist. But I am probably in the minority there.

    Hey Warwick owners, I have a fit question. My high instep and wide feet usually need 511 or 678 last with a blucher lace. Any thoughts on how a Warwick would work?

    I would like to know as well. Perhaps I'll buy one and save it and sell it later. [​IMG]

    This shoe also needs a navy belt, which might be challenging to find. I see AE has a few of them, but they are very casual.

    As far as Navy loafers go, what are your thoughts on the Cavanaugh (now on clearance for $157) vs. the Sea Island? Is the main difference that one is unlined and the other is lined?

    I'm a wide-ish D and have a high instep (not sure how to measure that, but...) and the Warwick in 11.5D wouldn't work for me - too tight across what would be the lacing area and had a strange wrinkle there on both feet as result. A 12 solved that problem, but introduced unacceptable heel gap/slip. I was trying to buy the Brooks Dark Chili model. An "E" might have solved that, but not available in Brooks sizes and not If I liked Walnut more I'd be tempted to try these in an E in those... (not a fan of black or oxblood).

    Cavanaugh is made in USA, Sea Island is made in DR from better suede.

    Edit: also; Cavanaugh is pinch penny, Sea Island is beefroll.

    Yesterday - Fifth Streets newly relaced with flat laces
    No idea why the jeans look so broad, must have been mid-step.

    Wishing McCallisters were included in this sale :/

    A little repetitious, but would you all deem a pair of brown Cornwallis as too formal for a 22 year old in a business casual office?

    I concur they are too formal for jeans and going out..

    Also see McCallisters are on sale on amazon for $299 in my size. Or I could take a risk with Meermin loafers..

    Choices... Will a connoisseur guide my selection considering i'm 22 in a business casual environment please?

    Thanks!

    I recently purchased the blue suede cavanaugh, personally find them much sleeker and more attractive. My pair had a couple very very minor flaws but for the price I have 0 complaints.

    If the blue was the slightest touch lighter I would enjoy them more, they can come across as very dark in the dim lighting in my opinion.

    If I were you I wouldn't hesitate to pull the trigger on the C's.

    Let me know if you want pictures

    For me the smaller toe box pinched my little toe. Going up a size was too loose.

    The 1943 has an even smaller toe box than the 5? Then that's a total no go for me.

    OK, I'm an idiot and I asked the right question about the wrong monkstrap shoe. So let me start over.

    "Hey Warwick Norwich owners, I have a fit question. My high instep and wide feet usually need 511 or 678 last with a blucher lace. Any thoughts on how a Warwick Norwich would work?

    Thanks for the forbearance and answer.

    I'm in for the walnut strand. Perfect timing as I've been on the hunt for a pair at a deal and my shoe addiction needed feeding. Also the latest Amex Offer for $50 off $250 makes this a steal.

    My brannock size is an 8.5D but I ordered two pairs: 8.5D and 8.5E. Recently I've found my feet swell quite a bit especially if I have to walk a lot or after a meal which makes my 65 last shoes in D width feel too tight.

    Thinking if I upside the width to an E it will solve my problems even though it will feel wide at first. Anyone else upsizing width to account for feet swelling over the course of a day/evening?
