    And you get bags. Unfortunate that they don't have your size.

    Mint condition chilli Bradleys that I bought off eBay for $80. I think they have literally been worn twice.

    They look great...one of my few regrets, did not expect the Bradley to diminish to shell only. Enjoy!

    Walnut Madison Parks, these will be my workhorses I'm pretty sure. I went against logic and bought 3 pairs of walnut AEs for my first three. Have black PAs and Oxblood Daltons coming in today. I need a brown pair for #6. Opinions on Bourbon vs Brown Vernons? I need a darker brown although I'm not sure I want another formal shoe (work doesn't require it). Also curious about thoughts on the fit on the McGregors (thinner fit?).[​IMG]

    How do the Madison Parks fit vs. 65 last? I've thought about returning my McGregor seconds and getting a 1st Madison Park in Chili since they're on sale at Nordstroms right now.

    Should be able to tell you today. 10D Mcallister is all I've tried on so far in the 65 last and it was tighter than I'd like. The PA seconds I ordered were in a 10.5D, so we will see. The Madison Parks in a 10.5D give about a 1/4 an inch of play which is just right for me with the laces tight. They are still in their break in period but I imagine I'll be wearing these 2-3 times per week unless I get a pair of walnut clearance Rogues in 10D. The 201 last is my favorite so far, sized down by 1/2.

    Does anyone know what last the Madison Park is on? I can't find that information anywhere.

    The Madison Park is a short wing and the McGregor is a long wing. Is there any reason as to why Allen Edmonds has so many long wing variants but no short wings available other than from Nordstrom or the Player 2.0 seconds? Do people have something against short wings? I like the look.

    I couldn't find it either. May need to call AE directly to ask. Based on prior responses, the shoe is basically The players shoe 2.0.

    Tone on tone stitching
    Flat chili welt

    With my ever growing collection, I thought it would be wise to start monitoring which shoes get worn and which sit in the back of my closet. Of course, as I actually started thinking about it, I began "reaching" for more options. I decided to see, and document via IG, just how long I could (reasonably) go without wearing the same pair twice. It has been a fun little experiment...

    Wow. Color me very interested!

    How'd you get a First Ave built on the 65 last (normally they're 201)?

    At the time, the 201 last was new and only had D widths. I was lucky enough to get them made on the 5 last.

    I'm looking to eliminate some redundancy.
