Before you return the pair that doesn't fit well, offer them first to SF members at cost, many of whom don't have that kind of access to shoes we find in NY. Well, I'd be buying these online, so I'm assuming everyone has access. They didn't have any dark oaks at the mansion unfortunately, only black, and not in my size. I saw someone buy the Mackey in Edwardian (could be a member here)...it looked great but also wasn't available in my size. Btw how dark a suit would go well with the Edwardian (which seems rather light)?
