    It was / is a 40R, so it's only one size down - should just be a small amount out of the back and side seams and drop the sleeves as far as they'll go

    Calf/canvas wingtip spectators by Edward Green for COLE HAAN - Size 10.5D. Starting bid $125. Soles look like shoes were worn one time.

    Edward Green for Cole Haan - when was this?

    Sometime in the 1980s for a short time I believe...

    Cole Haan really went through some ups and downs. At one point in the early 1990s they were even selling Russia Calf leathergoods!

    How can someone know enough to mention broguing and gimping and yet omit any reference to shell cordovan?

    I don't think they're shell. The auction says they are pebble grain, and AE has NEVER made a shell cordovan pebble grain.

    They have, however, accidentally put shell cordovan soles on a calfskin model.

    Any idea if these run true to their marked US size?
