@watchidiot just realized I think you are in the Philippines? I've spent more than my fair share of time in Subic Bay and running to Clark AFB and Manila. Hope you had pleasant dreams, tonight I will likely be dreaming of the sights, sounds and smells of PI from a Jeepney. Thank you for the memories.

 

Those kind words were well deserved, CI.  Beautiful photo of beautiful truffle/cappuccino shell.  Until it comes back, I'll dream of one in a plain toe or straight tip boot on the 1-511 last.

I am guessing these have been up a while but I never noticed

 

When did AE release this McKinley Penny Loafers Golden CXL? Great price - great looking combo Boat shoe and Penny Loafer-made in the DR but says recraftable...

 

 

Also just noticed this ...though probably the last thing I need is another bal casual but it is nice...tan leather

Wearing the Clifton's for the first time today. Got them as part of the 2 for $299 seconds special. Aside from the following issue, the shoes are great, with no other discernible qualities from firsts (I don't think what I'm about to describe is a function of them being "seconds").

Let me preface by saying that I have no issue whatsoever with creasing in the toe/cap area or anywhere else on a shoe. In fact, often I prefer the creased look as it suggests an authentic, worn look. That being said, I'm seeing completely different crease pattern left to right. The right shoe has a very prominent, thick diagonal crease in the toe area. The left has two less visible creases parallel to the tow stitching. Neither of two are worse than the other, alone, but side by the side the difference is striking. This is from about 6 hours of wear so I suspect this will only get worse. I've tried to "correct" the crease on their shoe but that hasn't worked- both shoes have the creases already "set" and are not adjusting. Any thoughts?

Going from my very amateur eye, based on the crease and the distance between the lace flaps...It would appear to me that the shoe is not the best fit for your foot. it also seem perhaps the widest part of your foot is not resting in the widest part of the shoe...again I have no real knowledge to base it on other than the photo. I would think to go down 1/2 size in length and up a size in width...

 

I have had odd creases in other shoes also and it is do to sizing issues for me

There is a pair of truffle dundees on the shelf in the Boston Newbury store. I have no idea what size, but I saw them there yesterday.

Thanks. They actually fit very well. The right is a tad tighter but this is probably the best fitting AE pair I have, with very little break-in required. They are a little long in the toe but the width is spot on. The distance between the lace flaps is approximately the same by default.

If the Clifton is on the 108 last...I think it is, then that is the same as the Mora 2, Delray and Clark St which I own and many people report the Mora 2 to have unusual creasing...mine did then I resized and my next pair did not. Really could be luck of the draw...not sure...of course if the Clifton(which I love) is not on the 108 last then ignore... :)

What is the more versatile, non-flashy PTB? The Alden PTB or AE Leeds?

I am a 11.5E in the 5 last and a 12D in the 8 last. Pretty SOP I believe.

 

Speaking of which...these came in from Lord & Taylor the other day...

I'm with K75 here, I think they are a tad small/short based on the picture. The widest part of your feet is closer to the captoe than the widest part of the shoes.
However, if they are comfortable, don't care too much about what we say here smile.gif Trust your feet, they will tell you if the shoes fit well or not.

Alden PTB will have more of a shine due to the glaze-like substance applied to the shell leather. 

 

I think both shoes function similar.
