PS. I don't wish to cause an argument, I really just don't have any experience with other companies.

Alden makes better shoes, but AE has Four Seasons-like service.

What do you guys recommend for shoes that are too roomy? 

 

I tried the blue inserts AE offers but that took up too much room… any other thoughts? Dr. Scholls has pillow inserts, anyone use those?

I might have stumbled on a pair of the truffle. Very excited, still need to decide on the fit. Pictures coming soon

I have a fair share of shoes that didn't fit well, I usually start with tongue pad, if I feel like the foot needs to be push back so the ball hits the wildest part of the shoe. If the foot is too far back, then comes the heel pad. If the shoe has too much volume, then will need to play with inserts. I only have to use the thin white inserts that I get from a SA from Nordstrom. I think AE has a thin green insert on the website for about $40 but I have yet to try.
At the end of the day, it's so much better just to get re measured and get something that fits.

This doesn't get much love here but it's perfect for southeast Asia's monsoon season. Work well in a gas plant environment too.

I have been waiting to get a Dalton in Burg Cord...but decided to hold off do to the new releases coming out eventually and I grabbed a very burgundy shell pair of Alden for J Crew Captoe lightly used. Also wanted to see what a slightly broken in Barrie last felt like...hoping it fits...if not it will be on the trading block...as I have my eyes on an Alden Burg cord Norwegian toe boot too... and then of course there is that Vass boot which I may not be able to get as they max out at UK 45 for size and may not fit my 12-13 D/E foot.

 

If that happens then I still may MTO the Dalton version I was planning before the MTO program went away. Started eyeing up more shoes to push out the door to make room....

JAB AEs still discounted to $258. I really like the McClain, but am under a strict "no more oxfords" edict.

Isn't AE phasing out its shell offerings? And only having them be MTO?

By MTO they only mean that they make them when they get ordered. They won't have uppers laying around waiting to be finished like they do with calf shoes. They are not phasing them out.

I would imagine that would reduce the shell seconds we will see also though if they're not making them on spec.

I don't think so. They are still a stock shoe that will be available to anyone to purchase from a store or the website.

so essentially for 5+ months out of the year(normal years) I am a shorts guy...while not high fashion clearly, simply the most comfortable pair of "dress" shorts if you will are the Haggar Cool 18 shorts with a special hidden little expandable waist feature. I probably have 13-15 different colors(great summer colors) - see link below- I wear them with summer colored t-shirts, tommy bahama shirts, RL polo's etc, some button downs.

 

I have been wearing my suede blue spiaggias, tan suede strandmoks, Addisons, Clark Street and shell Randolph's(button down shirts) with them this summer. Is adding the Neumok's Blue and Olive into the mix a bit much - I sort of feel the somewhat distressed leather and single soles lend them to be ok. Guess what I am saying is I look goofy enough in general are those shoes sending me over the line to idiot nation?

 

Those shoes just are not getting worn enough during the other months to warrant keeping if I don't mix them in the summer rotation.
