Can anyone speak to the sizing difference if any between the Players shoe and any shoes on the 5 last? Thanks.

my experience is that you size up half with the players shoes compared to the 5 last.
i had a casual conversation with one of the AE SA's the other day and he also agreed but i wasn't sure if he agreed just for the sake of it or he truly agreed (he was in the process of selling me a pair of shoes).post #29448 of 707379/19/13 at 6:23amQuote:Originally Posted by watchidiot
Apologies if this has already been asked before, I would just like to ask MacNeil and Strand owners their experience regarding the differences between the 7 last and the 5 last. I currently own an 8.5D Strand (5 last) and 8.5D Chukkamok (4 last). Both are very comfortable but I do find that the width of the Strand fits better.
I'm wondering whether I should get an 8.5C or 8.5D Macneil. I have read some reviews saying that the Macneil is wider than the Strands and some people suggest sizing down the width if you prefer the width of the Strands.
I know best thing for me is to try them on, but unfortunately this is just geographically impossible at the mean time.
I wear the same size in both, and both fit well. I would not go down in width, as the toe box may get cramped.post #29449 of 707379/19/13 at 6:27ampost #29450 of 707379/19/13 at 6:29ampost #29451 of 707379/19/13 at 6:33amQuote:
Thank you! I have black, burgundy and brown (C&J for Ralph Lauren) these days and they get plenty of wear.
I am a 12d in these and a 12d or 11.5e in 5 last shoes (highly dependent on the shoe, I have found). 11.5d Barrie last in the Alden world, for what it's worth.post #29452 of 707379/19/13 at 6:35ampost #29453 of 707379/19/13 at 6:39ampost #29454 of 707379/19/13 at 6:45ampost #29455 of 707379/19/13 at 6:46ampost #29456 of 707379/19/13 at 6:55amQuote:
What was the issue with the 11D? Too long? Too tight in the toes? Both?post #29457 of 707379/19/13 at 6:56amQuote:Originally Posted by Count de Monet
Well, "casual" varies, of course, from office to office. But, of the four colors in which the McTavish is offered, it would be last on my list.
To me, a black oxford wingtip just doesn't seem a good choice for casual wear, despite it being rougher than typical calfskin and with "waxed infused" leather. The "dark brown cognac" and the "natural" (close to AE walnut) seem like good looking, casual shoes that would be more versatile than black, both as to the colors and types of casual pants one might pair with them at the office.
Others have commented and I generally agree that "browns" are more versatile however in this particular shoe I happen to think that black is my favorite color aesthetically.post #29458 of 707379/19/13 at 7:00ampost #29459 of 707379/19/13 at 7:07amQuote:
