    These are all sweet deals. Just got the Churchills in Cognac in 8.5 from Paul Stuart for $249 and I thought that was a deal... until now. Love them and they fit like a glove, but the thin channeled sole started separating from the rest of the soles after 10 hours of normal wear. Should be an easy fix so hopefully not that big a deal. 8Ds need to grab the both the cognac and blacks.

    Eyeballing the gator loafers in 9. How old is old enough to pull these off (norht of 30, south of 40, but when I bought tires today for my car, I chose the best combo of treadwear / performance over straight up performance if that tells you anything)? Rider - knowing that the Churchills in an 8.5 fit me perfect all around - tighter than most of my shoes - would the 9Ms fit me or would the heels flop around in your estimation?

    Is it true that Grenson Masterpieces tend to run narrow? I'm lusting after the spectators, but I'm afraid that the toe area will be too tight if so since I tend to wear 10Es more often than 10Ds.

    If they are similar to Grenson Rose, then no. And I'm pretty sure they are. Rose fit me very well and I'm a medium.

    Agree with the above wholeheartedly although the shoes are slimmer only because the sole is cut closer to the upper on my Masterpieces. The internal fit is much the same as the Rose line IMO. I am both a med fit in both Rose and Masterpiece and have to say the Masterpieces are a real cut above the Rose's.

    Ron's communication and service are both outstanding! My order shipped late yesterday afternoon, so almost immediately after it was placed.

    Thanks again Thinkderm for posting a great PSA!

    Wow, I second that. I think I've just found my favorite store online. It was a great PSA and an even better discovery.

    Yup mine shipped to. Ron seems like a great guy and I'm now a fan. Will check with Ron whenever I need shoes.

    I hate these PSA's! I picked up the churchill and timothy when I told myself I wouldn't buy any more.

    guys, again, the grenson masterpieces I have are as good, if not better, than my Edward Greens for comfort and quality. They are pretty much the most comfortable shoe I own.
