I'm wondering if anyone can throw out some suggestions for a dark brown captoe balmoral. In particular, I have a larger sized foot (12.5 US) so I don't want anything too elongated or pointy. So far I'm looking at the CJ Audley (337 last) at about $500 or the Herring/Cheaney Churchill at around $300. Any other suggestions for under $500?

The Alfred Sargent Chatham might be another option, although I haven't been able to find my size yet. Any other suggestions.

Check out the Carmina model at the Armoury store.

The 337 last will make your already large feet seem bigger.

I find the American makers of shoes seem to make your feet look smaller like Alden or Allen Edmonds.

How about the C&J Westfield?

Wider last, but shorter and not so pointy if you want something more traditional.

I love my Audley's FWIW.

I hadn't heard of Carmina before. After a little surfing I find they have a very very nice model. SFers seem to think them a good value at around $500 at the Armoury. I'd be curious of any other models
