    I'd love to see some pictures of your shark Cliftons.

    I wear a 9d in the dalton, eagle county and fifth avenue. I find the Dalton's a bit narrow but fit well, the fifth avenue perfect and the eagle county is perfect as well. Its incredibly cheap for black eagle county seconds right now and i love this boot. Hope that helps.

    Thanks, They have the micro-creases so I'm guessing they're not cordovan. I'll try to get some pics up tonight.

    Has anyone purchased the Spiaggia in Navy. I know Sizzle has the white ones and they look fantastic, but I'm interested in some blue suede shoes and these may be what I'm after. I'd love a few pictures of them in the wild.

    Glad to hear your sizing. I just ordered Dalton's in 12D. I have Jeffersons on the five last in 11.5D but with thin socks they get tight by the end of the day. Hoping going up in size will help.

    I'm thinking of exchanging my pair of McGraws in 9D for a pair in 8.5D because I want to try to get a pair with closer matched colours and I also am experiencing slight heel slippage.
    I wear 9D for the Park Aves but my right feet is more like a 8.5E. UK 7.5F fits me perfect. At the same time, I'm worried that the 8.5Ds will be too tight for me. Do you guys usually size down for loafers and will Cordovan stretch as much as calfskin?

    I typically don't size down for loafers, but did for the calf Patriots I have. I think they might be a touch too snug. Not sure if TTS would have been better, but conversely I just picked up a pair of new to me burgundy shell Kenwoods which give me a bit of heel slippage that makes me wonder if I should have sized down. I have a pair of calf Kenwoods that I have not worn out yet, but don't recall them being this loose.

    If anything you should order the McGraws in 8.5D and see how they fit. If they both don't work then you can save yourself shipping by sending them both back at the same time.

    So my shell AE wallet was stolen this weekend and AE doesn't carry them anymore. Any suggestions for finding one?

    Does it have to be AE? There are plenty of manufacturers that make shell wallets.
