I'm having a hard time finding basic black plain cap toe balmorals that fit and am considering Georgetown II's. I love the Alden 907 on the Hampton - quality, look, comfort - but the heel slips way too much, unfortunately (even w/tongue pads). Can't wear the AE Park Avenue (too narrow a last, and stiff leather). Have owned and like the Alden blucher on the Aberdeen but I have been enlightened that it's a little snug, now that I have owned a Barrie-lasted shoe (LWB), plus I would like to get a balmoral to wear with suits. Tried Brooks Brothers Peal for $230 (half price from roughly $460; think it was a Loake based on the heel) and didn't like the fit or the very boxy toe. J&M G'town II seems to fit my foot pretty well after a quick try on. So, I guess my questions are: 1. anyone who's had the Georgetown II have any opinion on it? 2. are there any discounted opportunities to get the G'town II? $375 full retail seems egregious for J&M - more than AE, more than Alden irregulars, and less than $100 below Alden full price. 3. any other good alternatives that I'm overlooking in the 300-400 price area (roughly)?
