    Nordstrom has the AE basic wide belt in Walnut for $62 and the Manistee Belt (Walnut) for $79. I would start there.

    I like both of those but would they look too wide with dress pants?

    Has anyone else had this experience of changing lacing instead of increasing width for better fitting/less heel slippage? 9.5D strand that I tried were a bit tight on the instep (typical shoe shop lacing), but good heel and length wise. The 9.5E that I got were a bit loose on the heel (doesn't come out, but can feel a bit of wiggling), slightly tight on instep using criss-crossing, but fitted when using bar lacing.

    Just picked up my first pair of McTavishes at Nordstrom. I usually wear a 10E, but the E was way to loose in the heel - the 10Ds were just a bit tight in the instep - I took the 10D. Right choice?

    The European Straight Lace is also a nice option. Easier to cinch up than the traditional bar lace.

    I picked up my first pair of quality dress shoes last week. These are great!

    is there another way of doing this? I like the clean design but I am not sure what to do with the extra lace, especially with dress shoes.

    I like the MacNeils but they are clunky double-soled gunboats. They may not be your cup of tea.
