    I love spectators although I have yet to buy a pair.

    I am desperately awaiting for a pair of specs to come by in my size & price range-next to nothing.

    I probably got the only pair last year. Brown white AE Broadstreets (looked to be worn only a handful of times for $25.

    Edit: upon further review, it appears 297 is a C&J last, and the finishing is consistent with C&J handgrades. So I guess that does it.



    How do you look this stuff up? Might have to make a webapp so all this stuff can be archived.

    I searched Google for ' crockett "297 last" ' and ' crockett "last 297" ' and found results on Pediwear and here, IIRC.

    I have the A-E Belmont in brown & white and black & white. Not the classiest spectators in the world--the white part is plain leather, not suede or buck--but they only cost me $79 a pair at the outlet. I wear them about eight days a year in the summer and early fall. I'd wear them more often, probably, but my wife loathes them, so I don't wear them when I am out and about with her.

    The few I've seen go by on eBay tend to go for higher than average prices, so somebody's buying them... What I don't get is why most wingtip spectators are balmorals considering they seem more casual than single-tone shoes? [​IMG]

    i have brown leather/suede ones from Barker Black. I like them. i dont like contrastic spectators. The same color suede on these makes them less spectatorish I guess..

    I purchased a pair of factroy second AE McClain Borubon/Bone spectators at the Port Washington Tent Sale this past Friday. I thought the price of $195 pretty competitive.
