    Thanks! I'm just glad they've lightened up in color. When they first arrived, I was a bit dismayed that they were almost dark to the point of being black. Now they're clearly reddish-burgundy, and the color variation is [​IMG]

    The Plaza last is not as attractive for us wide fitted cloven hoof souls.

    Being one of the unfortunate wide-footed. I have found plaza just fine in an"e" width. To paraphrase today's kids, I shun those retailers who fail to offer their plaza make-ups in the real man's (that is, "e") width.

    On my feet, and it may be because they aren't particularly large, the plaza looks really duck like. A bigger issue is actually finding them.

    Thanks for the head's up MP! Didn't see any stock with Unionmade but I'll contact them maybe they have a batch coming in. Never tried to Copley last though... any input? With the Whiskey LHS a ways away, maybe the NTL CXL will be a shorter wait. TSM's version has some dark sole which I don't really like; besides, they do not carry 6.5D... :(

    faux "cashmere" stretchy jeans -- like the girls wear -- in a thread about Alden shoes?

    Is this a joke?

    Or is this one writer's suggestion for how to deal with the cordovan shortage? Stretchy shoes? The article does talk about "dog days." <Rim shot>
