    I wonder, who counted those brass nails down to the last one and why is it an uneven number?
    Is it an error or a design-feature, that one shoe has one more pin than the other one?

    pic only shows one shoe. the other may have a different design and thus different count.

    Before Florsheim went nuts with the Longwing Gunboat design (and the Goodyear Welting process in it's manufacture), they were quite fond of this design. A bit more full in the forefoot area and a more narrow waist.

    rikod - Awesome stuff! What last is the Vass burgundy pebble grain blucher? Is it 3636? If so how do you find it fits compared to F and P2? Thanks!

    the 3636 is definitely a tad wider in the forepart(toe box) than peter, p2 or f. i have a theory that vass compensates the width with their different lasts. imo, it's quite obvious when you see comparison shots. after all, it's just a theory and not proven.

    I am looking for some shoe advice from you experts because I have no idea what I am doing. I have purchased my first quality suit that did not come from a department store, and am trying to to find a good shoe paring. The suit is a Brooks Brothers 1818 Fitzgerald saxxon in navy, seen here.

    Going based on reading and the various FAQ's, I should be looking for a warm but dark brown oxford. Everything I am finding is either cheap junk or way out of my price range, until I found this Bruno Magli on a crazy clearance, marked down from $425 to $90. Here is the site for it on nordstrom.com, and here is a picture of the one I found in store... Note that it had some wording on it to the effect of being re-manufactured, but it looked brand new. What say you guys?
