    Yeah, I've been speaking with Christian about getting my hands on some. I can't wait!


    I honestly didn't realize how big a deal this was until I did a little more research. The rep I spoke with at Harrold's told me I needed to book a trip to Australia because Christian would be visiting the store to introduce the line. She almost tempted me, but my first trip to Australia is definitely going to find me in Rod Laver Arena cheering on Novak Djokovic and Gael Monfils ;)

    In other news... Who wants to proxy these for me if Harrold's can't ship them to me directly? [​IMG]

    Anybody need a pair of the field boots in a US 8.5? Long story short, my order got mixed up and I was sent the wrong size. I feel bad asking to be refunded for shipping ($75 to the US) and figured I'd just gift them or sell on here if anyone was interested.

    Had to do it. These Cumulus really are stunning; not to mention, suuuuper comfortable :) Christian really knocked it out of the park with these.

    I recently listed a pair of white canvas/olive suede Apertures if anyone is interested it's in the link. I love them, but reassessing my closet again and need to cut down on similar pairs.
    Nice pick up!

    I'd recommend a half size down.

    It's made by Baldassari for a local store.


    My feet are borderline wide so I went yrs. If yours aren't, you'd probably want to go half a size down as @thecool85 said.

    So I should clarify that my advice is for the loafers. And that's based on the fact that they WILL stretch. I have a pair of apertures as well that I took TTS and they fit perfectly. I have a slightly wider than average forefoot (measures about 4" across at the widest point) and a moderately high arch.

    Killing the game as usual, Gerry [​IMG]. I've only had my Apertures for about a week and I'm already pretty much living in them. You have your eye on anything in particular from the new collection? I'm thinking another pair of Apertures and probably a pair of Byrons will have to join the ranks for me.
