    Rare "formal" bal for me today. These are a little wide (should have stuck with 65 sizing rather than D->E), as evident by the completely closed lace gap.

    I wasn't sure how many readers would get the reference, but figured if anyone did it would be you. [​IMG]

    So they gave me a $30 credit towards my next pair, which is really all I wanted. That (virtually) drops these down to $77. . .which is close enough to $75. There wasn't any haggling either. I just asked and he accommodated. I've yet to have a bad experience with these guys. Bad shoes? Once or twice. But every person I've dealt with has been great. My only bad experiences have been when trying on (and not buying) shoes in the regular retail locations. I understand why I get the evil eye (they work on commission), but if i've got to try on a shoe, i've got to try on a shoe. I really didn't have much of an option. At least i'm honest that i'm planning on buying from the shoebank. With an outlet open near me now, I don't have to worry about that awkwardness anymore. I've dealt with several people in there and they're happy to accommodate.

    Dark Chili Charles Streets are $197 on the shoebank right now, if they have your size. As discussed a few pages ago, these are basically the same as the Cornwallis, but with poron insole, combination heel, and tap sole. Opinions on the poron insole vary, but the combination heel and tap sole are generally regarded as upgrades vs the standard sole and heel on the Cornwallis.

    Hey brown Odenwald wearers. I need 2 favors from you.

    1. Got any pictures of them in the wild? I've been eyeing the $177 version on the Shoebank for a while and might need to pull the trigger on it.

    2. How's the sizing? I'm generally between 11.5 and 12 D on AE shoes and have been buying 11.5 for boots lately (Normandy and Gobi, which I might have been able to squeeze into an 11). I've got the Darmstadt in 11.5 and the fit is pretty OK. Considering that's the same last as the Odenwald, I'm thinking 11.5. But, some of the reviews said the Odenwald ran really large, so I've been wondering about an 11.

    Congrats! Only parenting advice I have for you is let the hospital nurses help as much as they offer so you and the new mother can get some rest. You'll need it! [​IMG]

    Thanks for the rec, but I couldn't find any in my size. Ah well, this just forces me to save my money and wait for the RDA sale so I can buy the Graysons I've been wanting.

    Can't help with brown pics - I have the black Odenwald. But for sizing - I wear 9.5D in all my other AE's and the 9D in the Odenwald fit me best.

    Got my new Leeds (new to me) yesterday and decided to do a group shot with my other shells (Polo). Decided to go with some contrast laces on the Leeds, which really brings out the color in them. With the original laces, they almost look black! At $95, i'm really please with these Leeds in shell!

    Anyone know how to figure out how old the Polos (left) are? I bought them on ebay a couple years ago all beat up, resoled really sloppy and not listed as shell for about $20 shipped. Spent a good amount of money having Nick at B. Nelson in Manhattan clean them up, new JR double oak soles, etc and love them!
