Peal & Co.® Distressed Suede Wingtips
A nice country shoe
I've been wanting a suede wingtip for a while and couldn't resist this shoe. Overall, it's a nice pair of shoes. I think they'll wear nicely and, in the long run, end up an awesome pair. They are lighter than I thought they'd be, but I anticipate this will change with some wear and additional treatment. They are more casual than dress (as indicated by BB), but should be able to span from tweed to jeans with aplomb.
I'm a 9.5C so sized down to a 9. They're still a little wide in the heel, but I think when the double sole breaks in the heel lift will mostly go away. I marked fit down some because they don't offer a range of widths.
I'm generally not overly picky about the finishing on shoes as some (as you know, some folks think because these are expensive they should be perfect). I figure with some wear, most minor imperfections will be unnoticeable. So, fair warning to perfectionists! The edge finishing on the soles is a little rough and there's a dab or two of die on the natural colored welt.

Was not sure what these actually looked like and the local Brooks Brothers did not stock them, however they were kind enough to transfer in a couple of these in various sizes and colors.
In person these shoes are amazing, at least the Beige pair that I bought. They are of Superior quality and First rate construction, and very soft and comfortable leather.
