    Plus, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is only about two months away and they always sell first quality PA's for $200-220 with free shipping.

    Call the Shoebank and see if they have any Brooks Brothers Park Ave's in 2nds. They'll be very close to that price and they'll be new so you can put your STINK in them [​IMG]

    I actually have a pair of Niles also which are calf. At the widest part those are 3.98 inches wide on the sole. Not sure if that accurately measures the upper too, but I don't have a caliper. I will measure one of my 5 lasted shoes when I get a chance in the same way.

    I measured the uppers in a very inexact way, but came up with roughly 4 inches for my 8 last Delrays in a 12D and 4.25 for my 5 last shoes. Not scientific in the least bit, but indicative of a difference in width. Curious to hear what you find.

    I picked up the brooks brothers seconds for $159 + tax...

    I thought long and hard about the walnut Jefferson instead...

    I would. I believe the walnut McAllister is $269 as a second, so assuming a 15% discount that would be about $230. I think the extra $20 for the Jefferson would be well worth it. This is from the Independence collection, so the sole is different and the leather is apparently softer. I've only seen them in the store, so wont know for sure until tomorrow. The retail price is $475, and the regular seconds price is $379. The $249 price is only for the walnut version, I think the other colors would be 15% off of $379. I just ordered mine on Wednesday and that was the price they gave me.

    I'm jealous of the collection you are quickly building! The Franciscans are great. The rubbing noise goes away with one full day wear. Get'em!

    I picked up the Sandlot as well and managed to get the last one of my team, the Red Sox. I was disappointed I didn't call in time for any of the regular brown pairs.

    I just received my Sanford in the mail today and the side of the shoes appears to be pushing into my ankle when I am standing up. This causes an uncomfortable feeling around the area of my ankle.

    Will a wider width fix this problem?

    Lately jville factory store has been heavily mentioned in this tread. So I am guessing their sale is going through the roof and they could be the busiest ae store in us. I have emailed them yesterday for a list of available shoes. No reply. Few months ago they would reply with in 20 to 30 minutes. I am not angry or upset at them , I just want to pickup some shoes on my sizes before the sizes runs out. Going forward I am thinking of using some other stores that is not as busy. Any recommendation ? You can even pm me the store details.

    Do they look better in person than in the pictures? I was unsure about them, but for $19 why not?

    Thanks for the tip about the rubbing noise going away, that's eased my concerns. Heading home from work excited to open up my bison Yumas!

    Received Rapid City today, but they just see to lack QC; I expect some rough areas due to it being part of rough collection, but creases already on the sides and uneven areas?? They are going back. First disappointing experience with firsts. oh well

    I wanted so badly to pick up a pair if anything else just because they are $19 but I can't bring myself to wear an MLB shoe that isn't the Dodgers. Call me stupid but I'd feel like I would be a poser if I did
