    I just bought the now-discontinued Byron in Black. Very nice, conservative shoe.

    Maybe the discontinued Harrison in brown. There are so many that I have that I like.

    What is a "set" of shoes--does it mean a pair or a whole wardrobe?

    Preferably (and the preference is very, very strong), special make up in black shell cordovan leather with double oak leather soles (black shell cordovan leather and the double oak leather soles are exclusively available "special make up" on the Allen Edmonds Park Avenue).

    However, even in black "custom" calfskin leather with single oak leather soles and brown "Antibes" calfskin leather with single oak leather soles, (which are two of three configurations available ready to wear on the AE PA; the other configuration for the AE PA RTW is Merlot "burnished" calfskin leather with single oak leather soles, which I dislike for any shoe, including the AE PA), the PA is still AE's best shoe, IMO.

    Among all the AEs that I have, westgate is my favorite.

    Here is the list of what I have:
    Park Ave in black
    Mora in both black calf and brown suede
    Westgate in both black and brandy
    Dalton (like Leeds but for european market IIRC, both in black and burgundy)
    Becker in brown
    Sanford in tan

    Yhe Mora is currently available in brown and black leatehr as an "allenedmonds.com exclusive". Any opinions on the fit of the Byron vis a vis the PA, say? Anyone know which last they were made on? Depending on the last, I'm a 9.5 or a 10D. And where can you get these on closeout? TIA.
    Also, AE's Ebay store has 10D Moras in brown suede for $129.
