    PTBs never lose their appeal for me. Very nice.


    I wear a 10.5E in Barrie and went with 11D on the Van for a LHS. It is a snug fit for me, which works for a slip on. Also, note that there's been much discussion here about the instep of the Van. Seems it works for some feet and not for others. Good luck!

    I have a number of argyle pairs from BB. Mine are cotton, not wool, and provide a nice alternative for those of us whose skin can't tolerate wool socks.

    I've heard of people getting Horween shells before, (for like $350ish). Not sure how they got them, but maybe PM or email Nick Horween. He gives his email on that blog I think.



    I'm same size Van and Barrie.

    9D Aberdeen, 9D Hampton, 9C Van, 9C Barrie. (those two have that notoriously wide and low heels). If you have wide heels (people with chubby feet often do) you might be able to do your regular width. My heels are boney if anything.

    Good Luck!

    hmm $350 is a little too rich for my blood, especially as I'll likely bugger up some of the leather lol

    How about these? I gave StyleForum Graphic Design Guru "Parker" the photo of El Argentino's killer Cigar LWB and he came up with this, the Zebra Longwing! Maybe a LeatherSoul makeup for 2014?
