AE does have some Navy calf, but not CXL. I got a sample of the dress calf, casual calf and suede in navy. All of them looked almost black, so I didn't bite for an MTO...yet.

Those look pretty cool, and they've actually sort of reaffirmed my desire to get navy Neumoks, which I'm convinced can be worn to work in the proper setting.

 

Question: do you have a midsole between the dainite and the welt on that shoe?

post #35073 of 70737

Need a bit of help from the AE experts.

 

I'm ordering Kenilworths and Long Branches through my local men's store (30% off and shopping local!).  My problem is that I can't seem to find a consistent size in AE.  I measure a 10C.  I own Amoks (9.5E - still snug in the footbox), Hillcrests (10D - a tad long and too much volume in entire shoe), and Regent Streets (10D - fit pretty well, could have sized down a half a size).

 

What size would be my best bet for each of these shoes?

There is no such thing. Your size will vary with each different last, possibly.

I know difference in last will, possibly, alter size.  That's why I'm asking for advice.  The three pair that I own are all on the 234 last.  The Kenilworth and Longbranch are both on different lasts.

I have the fifth avenue which is on the same last as the kenilworth. I had to size down .5 in the kenilworth. I don't know why since it's on the same last but hey.

Happy to see they made it in 1 day. Here is a quick pic right out of the box. I will clean them up and take some more later.

:drool:  This emoticon does not do these shoes justice sir...  ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!

Yep, I asked for a midsole b/w the welt and the Dainite.

As tampatravel said AE can be more of a matte finish out of the box but with time and work they can and will look like the others. Some differences in colors between them but overall I consider them to be the same quality shell.

Great choice on the Dundee's. I prefer them over the Alden 2 eye chukka on the Barrie last by far.



Interesting stuff and nice family pic! Are those all Dundee's? Is that the dark brown up front? How did you size - true to Brannock? Sorry for all the questions sir.

My personal experience:

 

Brannock - 9D

5 last - 8.5E (9E likely works, too only because the ball of my foot is further up than most that measure a 9)

1-511 Dalton/Long Branch Last - 9D

 

For the most part the 1 and 7 lasts are the most true to size in my opinon and the 5 last runs up to half a size long and one width

Sweet; that's what I did for my EC MTO. I was worried that a double sole [with one being Dainite, which is thicker than leather] would end up being too thick, but it looks just fine.

I specifically asked Allison to check the height of the Dainite sole plus midsole and it ended up being roughly the same as the standard double sole.

Your foot may measure a 10C on the Brannock, but the Brannock assumes that the widest part of your foot is at the ball of the foot. From the sounds of it, and without seeing your foot, you may have more width at the toes, which would throw your Brannock sizing off a bit.

 

I believe the 234 last runs a bit small in the toe box (I'm familiar with the fit of the Banchory). The 511 last on the Longbranch will be much roomier in the ball of the foot and toe box, while the 65 last on the Kenilworth will be slightly longer, and a bit roomier in the toe box.

Great, I just jumped on here to ask that very question about the 5 Last!

I'm a 9D Brannock and take an 8.5D in Alden Barrie, so I was was thinking an 8.5E Park Avenue would be the right size. My foot isn't too odd, just with a slightly wide instep.
