    What does it mean to be the "most American"? I don't see American shoes really having an identity anymore... only Alden & AE even make shoes in the US now (for the most part). Unless you mean like Cowboy Boots, which is undeniably American.

    Two day shipping FTW. :slayer:

    They are on the 888, and the size you ordered is the US size (so mine are 9/9.5E).

    Moo, those shoes look great (what did I miss last week?).

    How is the fit? Hope to see a on-foot photo on WAYWRN sometime!

    :cheers: thanks Sri. Yes, on the foot will happen. :) Fit is good... the 888 might be the best EG last for me. More width for my toes than the 606, which seems backwards but that's how it feels.

    These were from BlueFly of all places. They still have a 8.5/9E left in black: http://www.bluefly.com/Ralph-Lauren...oxfords/COLOR_CROSS-SELL/318495801/detail.fly

    Great to hear that they fit well -- hope this is the pair you've been looking for.

    Thanks for the bluefly link - a bit too rich for my blood right now. Also, my footwear interests have changed direction somewhat, but I have something interesting (well, atleast to me) coming up soon. No, not bespoke. Will post pics here -- I expect it to be be polarizing. We'll see. :)
