    Monkey Cisco is a slightly more tapered Cisco (which is named after San Francisco and is their basic 501 style cut) with a slightly higher rise. The seat fits a little differently, but not enough to take a different size. Okagilly is a modified Okabilly. The concept is the same (high rise, wide thigh, noticeable taper), but it's a bit more exaggerated (higher rise, wider thigh, thusly more noticeable taper) and the pockets are smaller and higher. Both are unisex fits, though gals with wider hips would probably prefer the Okagilly. Stone is the low rise skinny fit. The waist is usually 1.5-2 inches larger than tagged because they sit low and the taper begins very fast. Only wearable if you know you have the build for skinny jeans without any stretch.

    in case you're wondering how that green no4 denim viv posted ages after a few years, here's mine from today
  7. Shoes that look better with age...

    Anybody get truly outlandish size suggestions from Kyle at Baker even after doing all the tracings and measurements? I got rid of all my too narrow shoes and found comfortable options in 7EE in Thorogood, 7.5 in Blundstone, and 8EEEE from New Balance. He's telling me to order a 10E on the Swing Last which would be enormously long. Not really sure how to proceed from here. Perhaps cancel the order and go directly to White's, or do they tend to assess measurement kits the same way?
  8. Shoes that look better with age...

    It shouldn't alter too much, they're already a pretty bulky boot no matter what. I'm now wondering if I should switch over to the swing last. Anybody who's owned both the standard semi dress and the swing last have comparisons to offer? I won't be having a celastic toe and my primary need is lots of toe space.

    finally got measured and pulled the trigger on whites after all my time on this forum, a mighty FF width now here's hoping I can "forget" they're being made so the next two months aren't excruciating!

    That jacket rules
  11. Shoes that look better with age...

    That's probably the case. When I was young I just wore size 8 sneakers and all was basically good, but extra toe space in a stiffer shoe or boot drives me nuts. I'll get measurements, but probably will save up for a custom job rather than buy something stock that's too long. Thanks!
  12. Shoes that look better with age...

    The time has come for me to admit that almost none of my shoes fit properly in the toe; they pinch like crazy and it's becoming more painful with age. Here's the problem: I have a very strange foot shape and am not very tall. The proportions of my foot until you hit the toes, arch, width, etc are similar to that of someone with about an 8 sneaker size, but the length of my foot is only about a 6. I have extremely wide and flat toes that spread out in a nearly straight line like a damn Hobbit. We're talking over 4.5 inches on a foot that's 9.5 inches long. I wear dress socks inside a Tricker's Stow and it's still tight. The famously extra large RM Williams, even in a wide width, are something like .75 inches too narrow. It sucks. I'm looking into getting some Indys in a EEE if they still stock those regularly, or custom Whites semi dress. Any other suggestions? Anything stock that's bulbous enough for my affliction? Should I be wearing Renn faire moccasins for the rest of my life? Thanks for any suggestions
