    Nobody shows off the monk straps like you do Uncle. Beautiful! A special gold star reputation for argyles OTC.

    +1 on the argyle and monks today Uncle. Nothing like #8 in natural light. Fantastic shine on yours!

    MrDV, Ravelloish looking whiskey's? Whatever the colour those are some damn fine looking PTB's. Do I want some? Yes please. The baby blue laces are very chic. I like your style sir.

    It is often recommended to try on shoes at the end of the day, when feet are their largest. Does anyone find the opposite to be true, that shoes fit more snug at the beginning of the day? I think this is what I have observed.

    Ok, here is a crazy story...

    After seeing a few shots of MrDV, J Crew Snuff suede #8 saddle shoe I have been mildly obsessed with the shoe. This morning I was on the J Crew site for a different reason and on a whim just decided to call and see if there were any open orders to remake the shoe. The SA was really nice and let me know unfortunately there were no open orders for that item. As I was thanking her for checking for me, all of the sudden she was like "you don't happen to be a size 8, do you?"

    I was like "Yes! I am. Why?"
    she was like "Well, we happen to show one single pair of these in stock and they are a size 8."

    I immediately began the checkout process excited as could be. Even though my order went through and i have received the confirmation email I am staying cautiously optimistic until I actually get a shipping confirmation.

    I figured this thread was the only place that could relate to my over the top exuberance [​IMG]

    Dazzling combo CA. As my 86y old father would say, "you look almost dandified". Your license plate must read CAPLAYR.

    I completely agree with you on this. I notice this especially on my Barrie lasted boots which always feel snug first thing in the morning and more comfortable as the day goes on
