    Just returned some JM handgrades and Grensons to Bennies because my feet are hard to fit and these did not work out.
    The fits are somewhat different between the Paul Stuart and non Paul stuart shoes - at least on my feet.
    The PS shoes are amazing. I hope these guys get many more.

    I am really sad to hear this, but, we did talk, and hopefully when the new stock comes in in Feb, if it does, who knows at this point, we will have some styles that work.

    The February shipment is one of the few things I'm really looking forward to in '05.

    I wear 10.5 mostly (sometimes 11). The J & M were 11.5 AA or 11.5 AAAA. The fit was VERY decent, in fact I was very double minded about returning them. There were two in black, a wingtip and a captoe, as well as a wingtip in brown.

    They looked FABUUULLLOOOOOS.. Due to the elengation, on my feet the look was reminescent of Dolce and Gabanna or Versace but much much more elegant. Now why did I return them?? Ah the other shoes I bought recently which a gorgeous PS Grenson captoe from bennie, a PS Grenson wholecut loafer from Bennies, a shell cordovan loafer from bennies, a napoli couture black captoe, and on and on .

    + the fact that Flussers EG I was selling on ebay did not sell.

    I think the JM would look great with jeans of all things.
