    This thread makes me want Paul Smith boots so bad. Those look just as good in real life as on the PS site.

    Those are very nice. They look like a lower cost RWGT. How is the fit? Do they run big like typical DM's?

    What kind of soles do you have on the brogue boots, deuce? I want something similar, but with leather soles instead of the commando sole, which seems more common.

    Tarmac, what is the color on your Tricker's Stows? Per Pediwear with leather sole they come in Marron Antique, Acorn Antique, Black Calf, and Expresso Burnished. About to pull the trigger, hard to resist at $1.48 exchange rate. [​IMG]

    the color is really great, kinda similar to the Black Cherry GT but more brown obviously (with a bit of reddish tint). Fit is typical DM, which I think runs 1/2 size small. It's one of the only shoes I size up 1 on, which is odd because nearly everyone buys their regular size but if I do they are a bit short in length and my toe hits the front leather. after having owned and worn the GTs over the past year I much prefer DM, in terms of comfort and appearance. and these new ones have a similar (if not the same) full grain leather as the GT

    Just snagged some vintage Alden oxfords for $40 off ebay. I think they actually might be shell cordovan too.
