    New to the party. We'll see about sizing. I'm normally somewhere between an 11D to 11.5D. I'm trying an 11.

    The pricing with the discount is ridiculous.

    Sizing confirmed. I'm glad to be in on the party. Now, keep this party quiet. As Ozzy and Frank have said, "Buday is nice to have as our little secret."

    Those do look good very good.

    We can keep it secret, but not so secret that Ed can't become the Buday King of New York. He'll get all the best tables and such.

    I was wearing this size 11 U.S. Frakno-last Buday PTB and my size 45 Vass F-last suede wing tips today. There may be just a touch more volume in the waist and arch of the Buday, but the fit is nearly identical.

    Based on my ordering experience, I wouldn't hesitate to try out a pair. Just make sure they fit before you march around and lose the option to return them.

    Thanks!

    And you are probably going to want to sit down for this, but I'm kind of thinking... not... shell... :hide:

    Whiskey or cognac would be pretty epic however, and I have visions of a plain toe BP39 in the cognac maybe. Or Buday's great black and cognac shell combos...

    Got to go with the Norweger first. It's a complete absence from my collection, and the Hungarian version is the way to go in my opinion.
