they really need to bring the academy back

to my knowledge there isn't really any CXL PTB in the market between the Thursday Boots offering and Alden


at least none that offer narrow sizes . . . . . because discrimination and oppression I tell you
There is the Grant Stone, but not in narrow sizes.

Those suede brogues are lovely.

I have never seen ancient Roman or Greek statues upclose in real life. I would love to see them like that, without a crowd or having to rush. I would probably be mesmerized for hours.
I can attest to fine art, in person, being breathtaking. I had the good fortune of being in Vienna for an extended period during my youth (sheesh, that makes me sound old, I'm not even 40 yet!) and visited their history museum. Those paintings that stood out to me were from Rubens. The detail, the lighting (forget Thomas Kinkade!), posturing... Exquisite. The medieval suits of armor, masterpieces of craftsmanship. So much integral detail, breathtaking. For anyone who is "not in to art" like I was in my very early twenties, I say give it a chance. You may find appreciation in the attention to detail, the clear labor of love, and mystique of it all as I did nearly twenty years ago.
Hey gang,

Been a little while since I checked in, glad to see you all still running strong!

So I had a little mishap with my trunk show HM's, but Ashley naturally took care of me and made it right. Got the remakes back in hand a couple weeks ago, but unfortunately I made a mistake and don't think the size is going to work for me. Something crazy is gong on with my feet and I can't seem to wear any of my HMs anymore, despite having worn them comfortably for years. Don't feel right sending them back to AE since they did everything correctly and the shoes are essentially flawless.

So, if anyone missed out on the trunk show or is interested in a pair of Brown Shell HMs in 9.5D w/ JR soles, I may be able to cut you a deal. Just shoot me a PM.
This makes me sad. Sorry to hear of your new found sizing woes, James.
Might be worth trying 10EE; you've got almost full closure. I'm not going to judge on that because it's normal for me, but if you're still learning your size it's worth trying a bunch. Have you been brannocked?
I had the exact same thought when I read his post. Cheers!

If you wear a 9.5E, I saw a couple of pairs of shoes on ebay that really caught my eye (in fact, if I hadn't just blown my shoe budget - and then some - on a new pair of boots, I'd have snapped them both up):

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Allen-Edmonds-Bristol-Shell-Cordovan-9-5-E-Burgundy/133081940931?hash=item1efc4d43c3:g:R0MAAOSw74pc~~DO - I'd never heard of Bristols (discontinued before I became and AE fan, I assume), but they're a nice-looking shoe (and shell!) for under $200

and

Disclaimer: I am not the seller of either of these shoes, and I don't know the sellers of either of these shoes; they just caught my eye, and I thought maybe another 9.5E guy here would like to snag one (or both).

Won't comment on the 5th street since bal boots dont really do it for me but I also noticed the Bristol. It looks an awful lot like the Leeds but with a flat welt and that nice stitching detail at the base of the quarter. Nice patina on this pair. By the way, they aren't mine either!
