I really like my brown Hinsdales - I like the blucher / wingtip combination.

You are correct - the 8 last (108 last not the 678 last). Same as the Parkland, Vernon, Delray, etc.

Jeans, chinos, blue wool slacks with cuffs, green wool slacks with cuffs....

I think that's what I wear mine with mostly.

You might have seen this before, but here is my favorite style blog giving some examples on the dark brown Dalton, though I recognize that Walnut is a less formal color.

Tongue pads are super cheap, easy to apply, and comfortable should that happen in the future. I have a shallow instep and narrow foot like yourself and I use tongue pads on my 9D's, whereas I don't in my true size 9.5C when I can find them.

Interesting, so what you are saying is that up north, these work. I'm envious of the layering...

So here is my collection of Allen Edmonds:

From top left to bottom right: Burgundy Shell Cordovan MacNeils, Brown MacNeils (from like 15 years ago), Brown Chromexcel Bayfields, Chocolate Daltons, Walnut Sanfords, Chili DelRays, Dark Brown Cliftons, Black Auburns, Black Wendells (made possible from the AE CEO, Paul), Black Lexingtons, Black Sanfords, and Black MacNeils.

Here are the three pairs of MacNeils together:

I'm hoping to add a pair of Walnut Strands, and maybe a custom-ordered pair of Walnut Shell Cordovan MacNeils.

For me, one good thing about Nordstrom is that you can try the shoes one in person and they will special order E or thinner sizes for no charge (when you are being fitted).

do you know if they will have walnuts strands on sale? guess hard to tell since its too early.

 - thanks for telling me about the width ordering.  that actually was a question of mine.

 - planning to go to nordstroms tomorrow to try on a few sizes so i know what size i am

Those are great looking shoes. Just enjoy them and don't think twice about it.

Shell Cordovan McCallisters.jpgMcAllisters in Shell Cordovan.  Ebay pickup from last year.

2012-05-11_11-04-40_569.jpgBrooks Brothers "Fifth Avenues"  in Walnut. I wore them today for the first time. Very comfortable as I expected with the Poron insoles and Vibram?? rubber soles. I used AE conditioner/cleaner last night and again tonight after getting home from work. When my AE chestnut polish comes in a few days, I will apply a little to see if it lessens the burnish streaking on the toe of the right foot shoe (left in picture).

There's a shoe I've never seen before under ae.com's Clearance section.  Sharp looking shoe - kinda looks like the Fifth Avenue.  It's called the Townleyhttp://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF2721_1_40000000001_-1

 

Thinking about picking it up.  I wear an 8.5E in the McAllister.  Being that the Townley is on the 1-511 last, do you think I should try an 8.5E?
