Thank you Solo and bl@ster! Exactly the info I was looking for. Saw the Work Oxford on ebay (new) and I will probably buy me a pair if they have 11D. Cheers!
Hello, I've been reading the whole thread but haven't found specific fit info for what I'm looking for:   Does anyone have any experience with the Work Oxfords in comparison with, say, the Alden Indy boots? Or any TrueBalance or Barrie last shoes.   I wear a 10.5D on those lasts. With some shoes I need to go up to 11D I recently also tried a Redwing Beckham and 10.5D seemed a good fit.   Thanks!
Incidentally, Amazon now has the Aberdeen in stock. The photos they have are very underwhelming, to say the least. :-( To be honest, the shoe just looks plain ugly!   http://www.amazon.com/Allen-Edmonds-Mens-Aberdeen-Lace-Up/dp/B007W1IV1U   Although, I don't think Amazon is known for having good photos of shoes - and yet...
Great info! Thanks so much. Imagine, I don't have narrow feet at all! --- I think the Wilbert fits me well in D width because it is by design more roomy than the usual, more dressy, shoe. I think what you say about the toe area is right; I may find the 2 last too narrow, even in EEE!   I'll probably wait until I have a chance to drive to the AE store and try the style if they have it.
In reply to zchen:   Thanks for the answer! I was thinking the same. My Wilberts are D, so I was thinking going with E or even EEE. I may even order both E and EEE and keep the one that fits best.   I wish I had an AE store close by. The nearest one is about 1 hour away - not a big deal, but still :-) And I don't think BB retail stores carry that style.   Anyone else? Has anyone actually tried or seen the Aberdeen in person? Thanks again!
Dear friends, I've been looking at the new Aberdeen longwing:   http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF8022_1_40000000001_-1   It appears to be the same as this BB: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Merchant_Id=1&Section_Id=522&Product_Id=1684834&Parent_Id=1032&default_color=BROWN&sort_by=§ioncolor=§ionsize=#   Anyway, I was wondering about the fit and sizing. It says that it's on the 2-222 last, but the description...
Hi Melquiad here! I've been following some of the threads here for some time, educating myself. I really appreciate all the wisdom, humor, and expertise I've found here.   Just recently bought my first pairs of AE and Alden. They are semi-casual oxfords (since I work in the academia and I prefer a combination of relaxed elegance and approachability), but they sure look nice.   Also been learning about factory seconds, Alden irregulars, semi-annual sales, etc....
