I was just browsing on ebay for some shoes... came across these gems- the Marlows. I never knew that AE made an austerity brogue! It is the style i am coveting most right now. If they ever brought it back, I would definitely jump on it!   http://www.ebay.com/itm/Allen-Edmonds-Shoes-sz-85D-Perfect-Marlow-Wingtips-Oxfords-Black-/251343146181
I agree. Its a little weird AE lasting quirk. I believe the old fairfax were lasted the same way. Doesnt look bad though
 Right- but there might be a chance they might acquire more shells? Why are lighter shades of shell considered more rare- is it because lighter shades require better quality shells, and thus are produced less by Horween?
Really enjoying my brown shell strands today. What are the chances of the walnut shell, or any lighter shade of shell coming back as a webgem any time soon, knowing that AE is almost out of their current walnut stock? I'm pretty bummed that I missed out on it when it came out 2 years ago. A walnut dundee or leeds would be perfect for my collection.
 Gentlemen- we have discovered Bill Gates' SF Username!
 Interesting that you were able to go down a full size from the Leeds in E width. The Leeds are on pretty much the widest last AE offers. I went down .5 width to my UK size for the rain last in a bal, and it had just the right width and maybe a tad long - perhaps it was my high instep? Not sure if I could have went down a whole size (not even thinking about 1.5 sizes down) without it being too narrow.
Excited to see pictures of everyone's 2 for $250 pickups after today. I recently picked up a pair of shells, so I don't think I'll be getting any this time around. 
 Beautiful. I will have to get a pair of cordovan PTBs one of these days. How is the sizing compared to the 5 last?
 Thanks. I was fortunate enough to try on a pair. AE 5 Last 8.5ECarmina Rain Last 8UK The fit was actually pretty good (enough room for my feet. I was taken aback as to how "small" my feet looked on the chiseled last vs the "blobbier" AE. I also tried on an Inca last doublemonk in 8UK, and it seemed to be too big for me. Strange, because the Rain and Inca lasts are supposed to fit the same according to this thread. Maybe its a balmoral vs double monk thing?
