Can you purchase them online? Can't seem to find any through Google.

What's the consensus on having your cuffs monogrammed? Stylish or ostentatious?

The latter.

I've got a "crafty" lady on eBay making me some prototypes - I'd be happy to share the results with you when I have them, and give you her contact information. Send me a private message. -Tom-

How does the last fit, and do you have any knowledge on the maker? If it is C&J I've heard the 240 last fits somewhat wide. Is that accurate? I generally wear 11E in AE, 11D in Alden Trubalance/Barrie and so was considering the 11.5D. They also have a free shipping deal going on, and apparently next day air is 5 dollars more.

Ive been on a suede kick recently, I just find them so much more comfortable than leather. It feels like the suede conforms to my feet whereas the leather stays firm. Since Im using these for casual shoes I much prefer the feel of suede, though they are easy to stain.

C&J

Yup, it's on the 240 last. They don't feel particularly wide to me, but I'm somewhere between a 9E and a 9.5D. I suppose my feet are slightly on the wide side. These fit me well in the width, but the length is a hair long; a size 9 would be too short for me. Here's a crappy iPhone pic:
