    The hampton and aberdeen last work for dress shoes, undoubtedly. For people with weird feet, the modified last bluchers are particularly interesting and elegant in a strange way.

    Though, for the money, it seems the English makers do make a more polished dress shoe. But would that stop me from owning, say, the cap toe bals on the hampton last in whiskey cordovan from the Madison Ave. store? No way.

    I believe, in your extensive collection, these are the piece de resistance.

    This is good to hear. I went down half-size and to a C width and the toe is too snug. I was gunshy about springing for ANOTHER pair of shells with only hopes that they'd fit. But, I think I'll give the TTS down a width method a try!

    Yup it's from Shoemart.

    Here's the link:
    http://theshoemart.ecomm-search.com/search?keywords=color+4&btnSearch=GO

    They have a captoe and wingtip. The wingtip is apparently the exact same as the current model except in #4. Not sure about the captoe. They said delivery is supposed to be June but they said expect it in July or August.

    FYI, if anyone missed out on the navy Indy and wears 10D, leffot has a pair. I took mine back and exchanged it for the marbles. Pics coming soon

    Is it normal for Shoemart seconds to arrive in a plain box without Alden shoe bags?
