So I finally tried on a pair of whites - I had no idea how intense (for lack of a better term) the arch ease was at first, but I can see how they are so comfortable - how long do they take to break in? I also tried the straight heel and found that pretty comfortable mostly due to the height difference.

How good is Peal & Co's Brooks Bro partnership? I have 500 (ish) to spend on shoes and I want to get the best I can.

What are your opinions on this wingtip?

Brooks Brothers has this model in a much nicer color in stores (on sale $100 off if you buy before thursday).

DDML - Thanks for posting pics, those look great! Is that a close trim? and is that the regular heel height?

I don't understand the 'bowing' of everything I see in the MOTO catalogue. Are they build with a rocker? Do they have steel shanks?

From what I have heard about boots is that the bowing comes from ill fitting boots. The width is wrong for the wearer and so they get the next size up and the front of the shoe is basically empty. Make sense to me.
