Ah, which thread? We were discussing that briefly in the Oakstreet thread yesterday, talking about White's boots construction.

I need to catch up on this Zug leather they are all raving about. I still prefer the scotch grain as you suggested. But that isn't for this thread. Derail over.

Sounds like it would be nice.

I don't see a lot of the brown shell Norwich on this thread so I though I'd share. I received mine yesterday, but they are going back. For some reason or another I don't like how they look on me. These have pretty minor defects, some spotting or marking on the toe of the shoe that's not really noticeable unless you're looking for them. Also, no seconds stamp on the sole.

Quick questions to all the experts:

I am a size 9.5 in Alden Barrie and pretty much 10D in AE 65 last (McTavish, McAllister.)

If I am to get the AE-made RL Saunders, given the many feedbacks that they are narrow, would it make sense for me to size up to 10.5 or stay at 10?

TIA.

If they run narrow I would think you would go up in width, not in length. I don't know if the RL stuff comes in width options, though.

These were waiting for me when I got home from work yesterday. No idea why they are seconds. They fit great and I went with the same size I wear in 1-511 and 7-97 which is my Brannock size. On the website they are clearance priced at $277 for firsts at the moment (I paid $199 for seconds). Anyone remember what they were going for retail firsts before they went on clearance? Love these!

I also ordered some of these in the sale but haven't received them yet. I'm on the fence like you about how they will work out for me but wanted to take the chance at that price. I guess we will see...

$399

I MTOed this w a dainite sole and no other alterations through Allison and have been waiting 9 weeks.

Kind of unusual that just a sole replacement would take so long, since there were plenty of uppers in my size in stock when I ordered it.

But yes, I've been waiting (im)patiently for mine, and am very jealous of yours!! wink.gif

It's hard to say. I wear AE 65 last in size 9D (TTS) and Barrie in 8.5D, and have a pair of RL Sandersons in 9D. The Sandersons definitely feel narrower than the AE 65 lasted shoes I have, but are not unwearable. They are noticeably tighter in the ball area, but do not cause me pain at the end of the day, so I would say that 9D in the RL last fits me OK. And they did loosen a little after some wear. Not sure I'd size up if I get another pair in the same last because the length and heel area fits very well. If you think you can deal with a little more tightness compared to the AE 65 last, or are willing to try stretching it a little bit, then I'd say go with the same size.
