    Thank you, Scotty and bgp.

    Do they only make the BB PA in D sizes only? That is unfortunate if yes. =\

    I wear a 10 E in the Strand and McAllister, so I wonder if I will be able to fit the BB PA 10 D...

    I have heard that because of the poron insole, the shoe runs differently than the cork bed insole. Can you go and try them on? Or order the 10D and 11D and see which fits best, return the one that doesnt.

    I've spent way too much time on Watch forums and car brand analogies never work for several reasons:


    1. Class Issue. Higher income folks see Allen Edmonds as basic no-frills business shoes a la Chevrolet as they have no issue dropping $1k for a pair of Vass or a payment on their Mercedes. Middle Class folks see $300 as 3x more than they would ever spend on a shoe and equate Allen Edmonds to "unattainable" Luxury cars such as Mercedes or Lexus. Both groups are right as it is all about perspective.

    2. Car manufacturers have diverse lineups.

    I doubt it. I (formerly) owned some BB Strands in 11 3E

    So, I'm thinking of trading in my Lexus ES350, but I'm not sure whether to get an SUV with a goodyear welt or a more sleek blake stitched Italian sportscar. Oh wait. . . . sorry, I'm getting my forums confused. Anyways, so tell me more about Nordstrom's sale on shoes . . .

    Just happened to be wearing my McAllisters today. Unfortunately it's a rare cloudy day here, so this pic is without sunshine. But these shoes can shine up nicely if that's how you want them to look. Mine are probably due for a bit more polish and wax.

    They did add the Patriot to the sale recently, not sure if it's a penny loafer or a Jeep SUV.

    Hello Frog,

    Sorry to report, but the blocking of a User does little to block out their quotes by other members of the forum. I had you blocked, but your commentary was still hurting my eyes and wasting my time when others were using the quote feature. So I have unblocked you and am enjoying the dark side once again.

    Your pal,

    David

    My, my . . . your comment is very rare on these boards. Then again, one of my former employers, Jim Rohn, said "David, if you help 100 people on this planet, don't expect anymore than two to offer their thanks . . . even though the remaining 98 are thankful."

    So as to show my respects to you (and others), Left Coast . . . thank you.

    Visible creasing is normal.

    Less-Visible is available by using one of the 3, 4, or 5 Step Solutions with Saphir Polish products. I have some 1999 versions of the Sanford in Walnut that I used the Saphir to lessen the noticeable creases.

    If you need links, let me know,

    David

    None of the above, I prefer Mr. Bib (the Michelin Man) and Michelin shoes myself. What is this Nordstrom's that you talk of....
    Very nice shartmann!
