When purchasing leases from Guarded Goods are you fellas going with the wide or narrow options for the flat laces?
I have both, prefer the narrow option for flat laces as they work better on a variety of footwear. There are times when the bulkier wide ones look good though....

Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! tongue pads didn’t help, going to try a cheap insert. Can’t give up on these yet! Love how they look and the overall package.

I haven’t had luck with loafer fit in general. Going to try a few more wears with an insert to see if I can fit my weird feet well

I have those same British Tan cap toe oxfords. Lots of compliments and so versatile! Great with navy, grey, or even taupe odd trousers. Due to the color I will even wear them with chinos or dark wash jeans. Love ‘em!

The tan and black cap toe Oxfords have replaced AE in my "dress" shoe rotation, now I have about 10 pair of Park Ave and 5th Ave just sitting in bags..... Wish GS would do a Merlot or Oxblood Oxford next.

Happy Sunday everyone. Our EEE widths are now in. We are really happy with how this last is fitting and how the grading worked out. If you have any questions on sizing, please let us know. The length is adjusted along with the width so if you wear a 10E and found it a little snug, our suggestion would be a 9.5EEE.

Wore the Dune Diesel's 90% of the day and they just keep getting better, only reason I changed is a major thunderstorm with 60 mile wind came in early evening, and I needed rubber sole boots after it passed to walk the dog. Even though I know that leather soles are fine when wet, and it won't destroy them, for some reason I still prefer rubber in rain/wet conditions. A blue Diesel would be kind of neat......on leather......

One of the best boots out there. Great classic boot styling, last is just about perfect. GS Diesels are a gem.
