    It may, and costs less than 3 bucks.

    Rikod, that collection is epic. I now need 6319 and Antique cognac. Your saddle theresianers are nearly identical to my new cognac:

    This looks fine to me. I don't see the lacing being fully closed as being a bad thing...unless it's some sort of style issue?? I would say as long as your feet aren't sliding around in them and if there isn't a hell of a lot of spare room after where your toes end, it wouldn't be a bad thing to keep them.

    I once bought a pair of derbys in size 43 by mistake (I am size 42). I put in an Ecco insole of size 44 and they fit me really nice and snug now.

    From a style perspective it is nice the smaller the gap. But, to my experience the leather stretches somewhat when you wear in the shoe. Since it is already fully closed despite an extra insole I'm afraid to have problems at a later stage.
    There is the opportunity to return them and have them exchanged for a smaller size. The only thing is that I have to wait another 5-6 weeks to start wearing them...

    Swede, you already know the correct answer to your problem yourself, you only need to bring yourself to invest the time and shipping costs. :)

    I like everything about this first one. How do you describe the cap? I've see u-cap used, which seems like a good name, though I don't know if it is correct.

    I also like the dark suede that others have commented on. I'm intrigued by the austerity brogue as a concept.

    I am trying to get a similar toe cap on a pair for my next order, Rezso referenced a model called the 'weymouth'. Not sure how much help it will be, but I hope it helps you.
