    Couldn’t imagine being in the size 8-10 range. So many more available to those guys, I’d be broke

    That is the downside to being a EEE. Florsheim and others made few styles in EEE. On one hand it stops me from buying too many shoes. On the other hands, I will never get the PTB, the Golden Harvest, etc, etc.

    I'm 9D - right in the middle of the bell curve. More supply, but also more demand.

    I have to say, Docs shell collection does inspire me. #8 loafers however, no thanks.

    Still needs a little sprucing up, but cleaning up nicely.

    Frank brothers was generally made by Johnston & Murphy, which is probably the case here.
