Yes, and while you are on the phone check for similar makes that are built for other brands like BB or RL, sometimes they are cheaper.

@Zzen- I just double checked mine. They are 9.5d - which is, indeed, a half size larger than my 65 last (and TTS). I went larger to account for medium to heavy weight boot socks. Your standard size might be the best place to start. At $127 its worth a gamble.

Thanks for the double check.  I agree that $127 is a price that makes a gamble attractive.

 

Speaking of attractive the merlot Eagle Countys on ebay are dead sexy.

 

Anyone know what the damage on the GMTO was for these?  I saw it mentioned in one of the AE threads that these were rejects from that order.

So, the Eagle Rivers... what kind of leather is that? Will it take a shine, or is a greasy tannage? Does anybody have real world pics?

Looking for something from AE that can be a beater rainy day and/or light snow shoe.  Pebble grain, with some sort of raised welt (for water proofing), lugged/vibram or non leather sole.  And, can double for work purposes.  I seem to recall that AE had something like this:

 

http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Peal-Co.%C2%AE-Leather-Wingtips/MH00442,default,pd.html?dwvar_MH00442_Color=DKBR&contentpos=84&cgid=0522

 

Doesn't have to be wingtip. Can be captoe or similar.  I don't want to pay too much since I've got tons of shoes, lol.  Maybe the above shoe was an AE for BB. Can't remember.

Yeah I went back and looked at the pictures and they weren't too bad for $300, but for firsts, I'd want a remake, too.

Tried to jump on these, but the Ohio-Jefferson store couldn't find them!  Showing in-stock in their system, but they couldn't find them on the floor or in the hold section.  Supervisor is going to look again.  Any advice on how to find 'em?  The Townleys are sweet.

Fellow forum friends, in particular McNeil wearers - how do McNeils fit compared to Strands/Park ave or other 5 last models? Same size in both? Thanks for any feedback!

A huge difference is going to be what size you wear in the Strand/Park to take into account lacing the shoe...I personally go wider on strand/park to account for my high arch....if I went that width in the macneil I would be swimming in them.

Are BB shoes made by AE eligible for the recrafting service?

The MacNeil has a shorter and more tapered toe. Some size up in length and down in width from the 5 last. Many (like me) size the same. It all depends on the shape of your foot, and where the ball sits in relationship to the toe of the shoe.
