    I've never tried this, but maybe you could call one of the locations and ask them to take a picture and e-mail it? They might be willing to do that for a $500 sale.

    I have also been following the threads on Style Forum for some time but only recently joined, great place to get new ideas! For what its worth, my understanding of a trunk show is that they spring up randomly with a limited stock of shoes. Not quite sure how you find out about these though.

    My understanding of trunk shows was that it was a place to showcase new items. Nothing is on sale.

    So I got the winthrop and have been wearing w/o sock, do you spray anything? My feet tend to stick to the shoes, pretty frustrating.

    The Randolph is a nice loafer. The MacNeil and Mcallister are classic wingtips. Check out a Leeds plain toe blucher in shell - the ripples make up for lack of styling (and are supremely comfortable) I also like the Strand.

    The navy is also stunning and I hope to get those as well but I chose the brown because it's more versatile IMO.

    Thanks for the reply (and thanks to the others who have chimed in). I'm not sure I'd find a whole lot of use for a loafer at the moment, so I may hold off. I really like the MacNeil (more so than the McAllister), so that's definitely a good thought too. The strand seems like a great shoe too. Anyone have any opinions on the McTavish? I doubt I could find that used on ebay anyway, but I figured I'd ask.

    Also, unfortunately I definitely can't afford any shell cordovan shoes, so the shell Leeds is out unfortunately.

    Sorry you have only bad experiences so far, I had to get a heel fixed twice on my Kenilworths. But, I'm still a fan of AE I'm general. I will say that Goodyear welted, leather sole shoes, are inherently stiffer than lesser shoes. There is a break in period, maybe that will improve feet comfort. Aside from making sure you were fitted correctly, not sure what else to suggest. Hope things work out.

    I love the Players in Walnut leather but I think they are a Nordstroms exclusive.
