not judging from his signiture
Sorry dude - they fit very snug for a tagged 10. If I didn't have a narrow fit and these weren't bluchers, they wouldn't work for me.
waiting for his statement...
So you mean that they would work for me a 9.5?
More Scribe Madness:
That's one SOLID pair of loafers!
I happen to really like some of Bally's lighter weight shoes. I've never owned a pair of Scribes, as I generally shy away from very heavy weight shoes. (Live in Atlanta and most clients in the tropics) But there is something about these two pair of Scribes you've put up recently that appeals to me.
I particularly like the triple row of stitching that Bally seems to include on many of their offerings. Like the stitching on the rear quarters of these. As with time these stitched areas develop a nice patina a bit like brogueing does but without all the 'fuss'.
Does anyone know if this triple row stitch is common on other makers as well? Or is this specifically a Bally thing? I can't recall seeing it elsewhere - but I'm far from an expert.
And Malford, did you decide to keep those dub munks? They really grew on me after looking at them for a while - I can imagine them being a steady friend in cold/wet climates.
I did indeed. I love em'. I'm digging the Scribe line at the moment. REALLY solid shoes.
I'll be very interested to see how they look after a year (or 10) of hard wear and loving care. I suspect they will age very well.
Maybe you should start a Scribe thread? This crowd seems to have no limits on their love of shoo porn (me included).
I think there's only 7 models. Might be a short thread

You scared me a little with the Alden's, PG. The rest I really like on you.
The St Crepin and Dovers are what it's all about
Yeah, those Alden's let the side down immensely.
