    Nope, love 'em.

    I still have never worn my brown Grants and may sell those.


    Doc, if you are a US10, I will buy them from you!

    Sorry, I'm a U.S. 9. They're 8.5 UK, IIRC.

    I just never know what to wear them with. Maybe I lack the necessary refinement and should stick to my gunboats.

    Ah I misinterpreted your post. You just mean there is nothing out there in the ether lighting your fire. Kind of the same here. If I were pressed I guess I would say the EG Westminster.

    PM me if you are for real. I love the Martegani bal-boots you sold me.

    I have a pair of those J&M Handmades in a Black Punch Cap Toe. Not my favorite, but they make an occasional appearance.

    Probably.

    Or it could be something amazingly exotic. Like button boots with dainite soles, Harrison's Millionaire Cashmere on the uppers, baby seal leather on the vamp etc.

    Here is my Grail shoe, very much like the OP's only a few decades older.
