    Comments about Johnston & Murphy WESTCHESTER TASSEL:

    This is a great shoe. I have owned the Westchester for 15 years. I also own a competitor's Grayson model which is a comparable shoe. The Westchester is a very comfortable shoe and more durable shoe that the other shoe. I would buy this shoe over the other anytime.

    I have just received the shoe back from the company's refurbishment program, the second refurbishment on the shoe, after only 2 weeks. I workmanship was excellent, although i would not recommend the added back counters. They do not add to the shoe or fit.

    Comments about Johnston & Murphy WESTCHESTER TASSEL:

    The shoes are absolutely beautiful and of the highest quality. i have only had the shoes for about 1 week and need more time to evaluate the fit and comfort of the shoe. I wear about 4 different shoes each week so it will take me a couple of months to really judge my satisfaction level with the shoe.
    I returned the shoe 2 X for sizing and was really surprised and pleased with easy of return and the quick turn around--Absolutely "No Hassel".

    I'll wear these shoes with nice pants, coat and tie and suit. I like the appearance. Have a similar pair (next down style) that have lasted 14 years. Time for a new better pair. These shoes will never go out of style, I hope.

        Looking for a well-made dress loafer, good for suits or slacks, and this fit the bill. Very elegant, clearly well made. I have a high degree of confidence I will have them for a long time...but, like any high quality dress shoe, there is a breaking in period. It's been just over two weeks and they are starting to relax, but I feel it will be a little bit longer before I want to 'live' in them.
        Very happy I have them, and soon, will be happy to wear them!

            Unfortunately, this shoe is unavailable in a 9A. We do recommend the Custom Select program. The closest to a tan would be the Antique Chestnut European Calf. Style number 24-0072.

            The difference is the cushioning system. The Westchester has a cork mid-sole which offers superior support and cushioned comfort that molds specifically to your foot. The Deerfield has the Trampoline Comfort System which features a foam cushioning and comfort.

        • Q:

          Want to purchase the Westchester Tassel but am worried about size without trying on. Some years ago I bought JM "Cellini" lace shoes at size 11M and they fit fine. But, reviews of Westchester Tassel suggest buying a 1/2 size down.
          Two questions:
          1)Should I purchase the 11's or the 10.5's?
          2)If I am not happy with the size can I return even if bought on sale?
          Thank you.
