    Hi all, thanks for the thoughts! Will take a spin around and dig into these.
    @Spex I've read, I believe here, that that bourbon color has had a lot of issues. Am I overblowing that? I realized that I'll be going by an AE in person at some point in the next week to run an errand, so I was thinking of getting measured in a variety of lasts to verify the sizing.

    @Igball Definitely am not although I really like the idea of them. The derbies I mentioned are actually Nordstrom 1901s and the boots are Red Wing Beckmans. Granted the RWs weren't cheap but the 1901s weren't a bad price and I think they look pretty nice considering.
    @mebejoseph The suit question is something I'm going to handle down the road. I have a suit, it's not good. I have shoes I can for now wear with them. I intend on replacing that suit but I don't know with what. I generally only have a need to wear a suit at most once a year, if that. I've got time

    Justin Fitzpatrick now has some shoes at 50% off - that's a hair under $200 shipped for most of them. If there are styles that interest you, you can't beat that deal with a stick.

    I keep looking at these beauties for under $200 and repeating, "I don't need any more new shoes. I don't need any more new shoes. I don't need any more new shoes."

    I feel you... If the Sebastien was on sale I would probably snag them. The Windermere for a black staple is a killer deal, but I'm hemming and hawing over an EB GMTO through Skoak instead.

    I have kind of a silly rule, but it works for me...
    Shoes that cost over $100 should be
    A) Made in a 1st world country
    B) recraftable
    Excellent Rule.

    Would you mind explaining what EB GMTO means?

    I think GMTO is Giant Magellen Telescope Organization.

    No, wait--I think I found it.
