    @BackInTheJox those are a thing of beauty. If they are 8.5d and you get bored of them, let me know [​IMG]

    Corporation's growing. Not the full stairs of some, but not bad for only 13 months in.

    They're actually 8D, but were advertised falsely as 8.5D when I bought them. I'm usually a 9E in most AE shoes, but OSB run quite large. That said, 8.5 would probably be perfect for me (which is why I bought these) but 8 may end up being too snug/narrow.

    Do you know your sizing with OSB? Are you an 8.5D in most shoes? If so, an 8 is probably very close to perfect in these.

    I haven't worn them anywhere yet (those pics were taken today), but if I do decide they're too small the. I will let you know!

    Rough leather Long Branches today. Does anyone else feel these have a low instep? Anyway, I set out to darken these from the beginning and they look much better to my eye now. The red laces were too fashion forward, I opted for black.

    @BackInTheJox I don't know my size in OSB sadly. I'm mainly a 9d in AE, 8.5m in sperry, probably going to be an 8.5d in AE loafers as well.

    Fair enough. I suspect 8 may be your OSB size, particularly if you would wear them without socks.

    Daddy/Daughter dance tonight. I'm wearing the gray suit. Should I do the Dark Chili or the Walnut? Also, shirt/tie suggestions for either? Trying to pop it, and maybe avoid a white shirt this time. All kinds of blues, off white, pink are available shirt choices. Input appreciated.

    I say "chili" too. And I'm partial to blue or white shirts with a gray suit.

    The "which shoes with this suit" question got me to thinking about turning that question around the other way.
    I'm going to wear my bourbon Strands tonight.

    Should I wear these with a navy suit, or a medium grey suit?

    Sharp looking shoes @mreams99 , personally believe they'd look good with either, but I lean the medium gray. (This is coming from someone who owns exactly zero suits, and I'm getting suit envy now.)

    I've worn navy suit/bourbon strand on numerous occasions, including last year's DD dance.
