Can anyone comment on sizing for the RL Slaton? I read on here that the Ralph Lauren shoes are on the two last, which I have found to be too narrow in my normal size. Should I size up in length or width?

The jl or cj version jl from casino royal tough to beat. I would like the ae wholecut better if it were on the 5 last. IDK maybe its me but the elongated toe box throws off the aesthetics for me.

Not sure this has been posted(not enough time to read through all posts) but Nordstrom's anniversary sale covers some AEs. I just purchased a pair of black Park Avs for $230 which is a fantastic price. Many of their other items are on great sales until August 5th, I also got a $15 set of their Cedar shoe trees which seem to be a fair bit better than the normal Jos A Bank(:() in the sense that they can increase in width. Which leads me to ask how does one add a frown face inside a parenthetical? lol.. 

 

Other favorite choices(IMO) include: Patriot Pennys in brown, Park Aves in Black, Strands in Walnut, & McAllister Black. This is simply my opinion at a quick glance through the sales. PLEASE everyone interested consult the sales!! 33% off is not a laughing matter! 

/endrant

 

First AE post: 1st purchase was Bourbon Strands, 2nd was Badenton black tassel kilts(for $1 on Ebay) & today's purchase of black Park Aves puts me at my 3rd AE transaction. 

 

Hope I helped add to viewer's AE collection.

All joking aside, along with the sale, Nordstrom is giving free shipping to Canada right now on orders over $150. I do think that is worth mentioning. It's approximately another $30-35 in savings.

My coffee cup is an 11 oz.custom crested Military Art ceramic mug from the USS America that is 24 years old. 5 years ago it cracked into about 6 large pieces so I glued it together and have been using it every day since. Monday morning went through the garage to work with the dog at 5 AM and felt something strange, looked down and the cup was falling apart in what seemed to be slow motion from my hand with just the handle staying behind. It hit the cement floor and shattered into hundreds of pieces soaking me from my knees to my brown shell Patriots. Last night I finally got some time to clean them, spent about 15 minutes with Reno, damp rag, brush and microfiber buffing cloth. Just another reason to love shell. And what is left of my coffee cup:

 

Sorry about your coffee cup - but the Patriots look very nice!

So...should I return my unworn strands to nordstroms and buy them from amazon? It would save me about $50-$60. Hmmm...very tempting.

Too bad there aren't any available from Amazon in my size... though even if there was, it's worth noting us Canadians get dinged with a $35 shipping fee (plus potential taxes/duty). Great deal for those who can take advantage of it, thanks for sharing.
