    Got the 10 EE and... still pretty narrow. Don’t feel too crazy uncomfortable but with a pretty wide V in the laces. Gonna try a 10 EEE. Guessing my shoe bank options are gonna be pretty limited going forward.

    Thanks man! I'll give it a shot then on mine. I have to order 46 because I have long arms, even though I'm really like a 44L. Unfortunately S&M doesn't sell L sizes in their coats.

    I have a few Spier and Mackay topcoats/polo coats that are a little big in the waist, and I'd like to slim them some. I assume this can be done just fine?

    Anyone own both Daltons in 10.5 E and an AE 65 last shoe that’s comfortable? Or anyone suggest a conversion formula? Based on how it felt, thinking I need to go from 10.5 E to a 10 EEE... ?

    Thanks all!

    I prefer the first one, worn as shown. You could probably alternate shades of brown and blue, but I normally like the sport coat to be darker than the pants.

    I'm looking at the Bonobos final sale sports coats, and like the look of this one, but not sure how versatile it is for wearing to work (i.e. with navy/gray/brown trousers):



    The alternative would be one of these two, which seem a little too loud for work...





    Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    Does anyone have experience with the technical suits from Ministry of Supply? I am intrigued by the technical fabrics and was hoping to get a Dappered review before pulling the trigger.

    Thanks!

    Yea they are US size. Don't know if Peal are still made by C&J though.

    Daltons are on the 511 last which is wider than the 65 last. I have heard of people sizing down then up a width but I did not do that so am not much of a help.

    Hey guys, I'm looking for some advice\guidance on replacements for my current brown leather chukka boots.
    -Brown leather (not burnished, not too dressy or shiny, something that can take a bit of a beating-pebbled is fine, not suede)
    -resoleable
    -leather or rubber soles
    -At least 3 eyelets (so not a true chukka I guess) but no more than 5
    -toe shape and lines that make them nice enough to wear dressy casual
    -plain toe (no caps or perforations)
    -luckily can say price is not a concern

    I'm having a heck of a time finding what I'm looking for.

    Thanks in advance.
    I love shopping for shoes on the internet, so here are a few more pairs I've found that more or less fit your description:

    Highly recommend Cobbler Union shoes.

    Not sure where you are, but Carmina has a store in NYC:

    45e E 45th St, New York, NY 10017

    Given the prices they charge for customized shoes, I'm sure they would be helpful on the phone as well.

    Also, I think they carry them at Barney's in New York, San Francisco, and Beverly Hills.

    Oops . . . my bad. Barney's is going out of business. They have some other US locations if you follow the link.
