    Voted C&J, JL and G&G. C&J are my current faves/what I can afford, will start buying G&G and JL when money permits.

    I had to vote 'other' because I buy more from Riccardo Bestetti than any other brand.

    allen edmonds is surging! im surprised so many people picked AE. someone needs to start a dedicated AE thread similar to the Alden thread

    At first I was surprised too given the hate AE gets here but you have to consider AE is the most "accessible" style-forum approved shoe manufacturer. Volume wins!

    +1. That they're easy to find at reasonable prices makes a huge difference. I need decent, affordable shoes to wear while I wait for the perfect pair of perfectly discounted English shoes in my size to show up on B&S/Ebay/etc. And their cost-value ratio works best for me at my current (recent college graduate) income level.

    That said, I'm not in love with their design or their fit. When I can afford more expensive shoes, I imagine my AEs will be largely phased out.

    A fortunate and/or spendthrift crew I see. [​IMG] My barker shoes are always my first choice, and I'll make minor adjustments to my shoe rotation in the week before I need to wear them. If I had to buy a fresh pair right now, I'd probably find a $100 pair of Cole Haans. (As a college student, it's the limit of my current penury).

    You tried all the shoes?

    That was not implied by his post.

    With C&J taking a commanding lead in the poal, Im surprised more people are not being more vocal about the fit.
    C&J don't fit me well at all.

    +1. I had a pair of the Hallam in size 12 but they were too tight. I currently own the Darlton and Darlton ptb in size 11.5 and while they fit, its not a pleasant fit. Same goes with the Darlton loafer. If I went with TTS they would have been too big. My John Lobbs are butter. Sometimes I cant believe how good they fit. In fact, yesterday was a weekend and had no reason to wear them but I just tried them on for the hell of it[​IMG]

    Multiple Choice poll. You could have voted for all of them.

    I'm surprised no one has voted for Delos yet. He has his own shoe porn thread...
