Just got these in from Brooks Brothers. I'm usually an 11.5E in AEs but I got these in 12D and they fit perfectly, and are quite comfortable right out of the box. I wasn't sure if I'd like the black grain leather but I actually like it better than the regular smooth calf for this shoe. I think the grain looks more subtle in person but for whatever reason it is amplified in photographs. Also, you can't really tell how substantial the Macneil is until you see it in person and try it on. I personally love it.
