Thanks again rydanfan, It's been trial and error with sizing across all shoe brands for me (being in Canada limits being able to try stuff on sometimes). I do end up with either perfect or near perfect fits almost every time thanks to helpful posters like yourself, and if I misjudge it's usually nothing a small adjustment can't fix. It helps a lot that you have what seems like probably a very large collection and near identical sizing as me. :cheers:

 

My only error was an 8D in the Dalton, it was just too narrow and stiff. My baby toes couldn't take it so I had to sell. If I did get a pair again I would go 8E, but I doubt I would pull the trigger unless walnut cordovan came back around.

I have both the Dundees and the Leeds in Shell. I also felt that the Dundees fit a tiny bit larger than the Leeds due to how different these two shoes lace. However, I don't think you would need a tongue pad in your Dundees once the cork in the sole forms to your feet. 

 

 

That's a good point!

Hahaha, absolutely stunning, I somehow knew you must have a pair. How the heck do you work all these shoes into a rotation? I have only around 10 pairs of quality shoes and yet find myself neglecting pairs for weeks on end. You guys with large collections must go months before wearing the same pair over again.

Oh boy, hope that's not the case or my wife will probably destroy me. Two pairs within the span of a week that I don't exactly "need" would be an issue.

Looks like the del rays are back on Lord and Taylor, had 11s in my shopping cart but opted not to grab them. You all should try again.

If you encountered a hastle while purchasing shoes at full or sale price in an AE store or over the internet, I would say that your indignation was justified. What we're dealing with here, however, is a series of ad hoc arrangements in which (a) the CEO has assigned some woman responsibility for handling our outrageous MTO requests at unbelievable prices and (b) sales reps at the shoebanks send us inventory lists and ship shoes (with no shipping fee) when they're not dealing with flesh-and-blood customers. Amateur hour? Charity hour is more like it. AE's profit margins on customers like me (who take full advantages of 2nds, military discounts, and clearance prices) are already slim; I don't have the sand to ask that they hire more staff to reward my frugality and make my bargain hunting more convenient. PG, Allison, Vincenzo, et al are doing us a great favor on the margins. The only way to improve the customer experience would be have us buy our shoes the way everyone else does--which is of course an option available to any off us.

Well said! The complaints are absurd.

I would love to know how the complaints are absurd. I do end thousands of dollars a year with AE, far more than their average consumer and mainly at full price. When I repeatedly email someone to try and place an order and cannot get a simple response, that is frustrating. Even an email saying I will be back to you in a week would at least be something. The offer of the MTO was put out by the CEO of the company and as such they should have the infrastructure to support it, or not offer it. It is absurd to say I should be willing to expect less if a standard of service because of the type of order I am placing. I guarantee my dollar is worth the exact same as yours when it clears

Also, based off the volume of orders and the shell heavy MTO's I would not be surprised if this program generated an additional $100,000 in sales. These sales would likely not have gone to AE if this program did not exist so I do think that this is a meaningful program for them and not dive solely as good will. Do not mistake me, I think it is wonderful they offer it but lately it is not being done to the level that it once was

Suddenly, a whole bunch of shoes previously completely sold out reappeared on AE website: Elgin, Stewart, Amok, and a whole lot more.

Indeed, it's maddening — I could come up with a dozen pair easy that I'd like to buy!

Why not much love for the Westchester on this thread? I think it's the best looking loafer of the bunch.

Thanks for the heads up here.  I picked up a pair of amok's in snuff for $147.

Gahh I've been ignoring this thread for the past couple months and upon coming back I read all these good MTO deals that are no more. Pretty sad. Would have loved MTO for clearance prices. So what is the MTO situation like right now? Any deals that are still being honored?

Looking to buy some AE Leeds in black calf to replace my Bates for service dress uniform wear. What size should I get? I wear 42 CP achille lows, 10 Nike free 5.0s, 280 original GATS, 43 MMM sidezips, and 43 Fiorentini+Baker 745s. I'm a 10 on braddock device, just unsure on width. Also, will these be on sale soon?

When you place an order on AE.com and preorder a shoe that will be made in 8 weeks or so, is your credit card charged instantly, or when the shoe itself is ready to be shipped? I'm assuming that you get charged immediately.

I ordered a web gem Strand and my American Express was charged immediately. I received the statement, and paid it, about four weeks before the shoes were shipped.
