    Anyone have the Fifth Street in black calf? I was searching for an example and found Horsey's collection with the Fifth Street in shell. Those look terrific (as does the whole collection). Thinking of picking up the Fifth Street in black on clearance, as I think it fits nicely into my boot collection and also as a black shoe in general. My boots currently are: - AS 87 last brown repello suede, Dainite sole - Alden Indy brownish/reddish - RL Lindrick shell - Trickers "not Stow" acorn, Dainite sole - Peal (C&J) burgundy cordovan, Dainite sole - Wolverine 744

    Yes, this. Just call, and they will email the label to you. Either this or take to a store, whichever is more convenient for you.

    I suggested dropping them off in store to bring a retail manager into the loop. If the manager is halfway decent, he'll take care of the nitty details and maybe apply some pressure on Port Washington to get it taken care of expeditiously. Couldn't hurt, I don't think.

    I will, some time this afternoon. I ordered both black and brown on clearance. These will be my first boots.

    I have the Fifth Streets in both brown & black. I like them both. They have more toe room than any of my other AE shoes or boots. My only regret is that I should of gotten the black pair first.

    My Christmas present - kind of. I got some cash for Christmas, so I quickly converted it to these. They have been at my local menswear/shoe store for a couple of months and I have been checking them out. So Christmas cash was a perfect fit.

    I bring you my new Bourbon Flatirons.

    I picked up a pair of the brown calf/brown grain Hamptons and a pair granite grey Parkways on clearance. I'm a 9D on the Brannock device and both fit me well at size 9D (the Parkway is my first try with the 333 last). I think the Hamptons is a keeper, but I'm not so certain about the Parkway. They look really long (they look to be about half an inch to an inch longer than the 1-lasted Hamptons but due to the shape, fits about the same) and I'm not sure what to wear with the grey color. Anyone here with suggestions on what pants goe with granite grey?

    The 333 is exceptionally long, yes. My SA recommended going down in size.

    Gray is a neutral color. You can pair it with anything. I would avoid other neutral colors. Otherwise have a blast. Post some photos.

    Thanks for the reply. I think if I sized down on the 333 last, my pinky toe might get squeezed a bit. I guess I'll sit on it for a while before deciding if I will return or not.

    Some quick pics of the brown Hamptons and grey Parkways:
    Yes, the "V" seems kind of wide, but the shoe fits really well everywhere.
