Shell Dalton in 12E showed up yesterday on Shoebank at $549.  Your SA may be able to soften that blow.

Thanks for the heads up. But the 12D is spot on for me. Plus I'm probably good till the next, hopefully, shell sale. The last one was Feb/Mar so it seems about every 6 months. Crossing fingers.

Couldn't wait to get these on. Maiden voyage. A good natural light picture.

Before - a $50 pair of beat up, heavily used burgundy shell Leeds from eBay: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




Middle - after several rounds of Renovateur, Reno'Mat, and (gasp!) rubbing alcohol:




After - Fresh off my feet from the first wearing post-AE Recrafting:



These look incredible. What a score!

@lemmy127 do you have any idea how old those PTB are? The shape of the toebox looks different from the familiar rounded 1-Last.

That's true. They actually look like the 4 last.

They look a lot better than the 'newer' leeds!

I just picked up a pair of Alden Indy 403's in dark brown CXL with white stitching, which have a lot of similarities to these. The dark brown CXL is absolutely gorgeous! I think these Clarks St. with dainite soles are a great choice for casual and sketchy weather wear.

Your guess is as good as mine. I was thinking the same thing though. I only have Addisons to compare, but the loafer construction makes it difficult to tell.

Regardless, it's a great pick up and AE Recrafting did an awesome job on those.

This is a really nice collection! All great choices, with very little overlap. I think this is a great example of a shoe collection that can basically do it all in about a dozen pairs.

so since we are on the Shaker Heights boots anyone know where to get reasonable priced tweed pants? I really think I need a pair to mix in with the cords this winter.

 

Epaulet has a few pairs (http://epauletnewyork.com/).  I don't own any Epaulet clothes but a number of posters in this thread seem to wear nothing else nowadays!  There's an Epaulet thread too if you want reviews, size suggestions, etc.

Overall I could not be more satisfied with this boot at its super-low closeout price. I love the look, and they are extremely comfortable.[/quote]

Okay, this is officially my next purchase. How would you size the 73 last? I'm a 9D in the 1 last and 8.5D in the 5 last. Thanks.

I find it super wide throughout. I'm a full 3E and think I could have gotten by with an E. It runs a bit longer than Brannock. Similar to 5 last.
