    I believe it's goulash, actually.

    Zippyh, your information is very useful and much appreciated. I'm considering a special order for some boots and I think I may have to decide between the 4497 and the 2298 (Not Stow). I have some Bourtons on a 4444, but they do seem just a little loose over the instep, and I have high arches.


    I wear Barrie 9D as well, and I find that it fits me very well. I do better with Barrie than with Leydon. So I am a little reluctant to go much narrower...


    Then again, keithp's advice seems reassuring. I should probably consult Richard. I'm still not sure what style I want. But I have to have that coffee burnished calf.

    Just received the black Derby boots from STP that I bought for my brother. I'm strongly tempted to keep them for myself. Alas, I won't. I want him to have them. The point is, they look great. I like the coffee color better, but a man has to have black wing tips. I mean, what are we? Animals?

    I hope it helps.

    One thing to consider is that with a boot you can get away with a little more looseness as compared to a shoe since there's more to lace down. Defintely page through the gallery of Shoe Healer MTO for inspiration. My personal favorites are my coffee burnished Eatons.

    Those Eatons are just what caught my eye. I like the design, but they are a little wide. But I'm trying to figure out whether or not it would be a mistake to try them with a slimmer last. Sometimes certain designs are chosen for certain lasts because it is just a better fit.

    Is anyone else less than crazy about the way they crinkle-cut the edge of the leather on Stows, not-Stows, probably other brogue/wingtip shoes and boots? I only just noticed it, and I don't think I like it.

    Which I think means I'm sending back a second pair of not-Stows to STP (I jumped on a pair in the coffee color when they dropped under $300 shipped). :embar:
