I know this was for @mdubs, but since we're on the topic... I check the weather, decide on a shoe, then I pick my outfit. I can see how I might do this otherwise if I had more shoes, or if every pair had Dainite or at least a vthread/topy.

LoL, I typically check the weather before I pick my shoes as well. I do not wear light Shell in inclement weather. :-)

Dubsy, I would die for a peek inside your shoe storage area. Im trying to imagine the scenario of you picking out the day's pair.

Inclement weather in southern California? Haha.

On a serious note, how do you find shell cordovan on warmer days? Is it uncomfortable?

Doesn't bother me on warmer days. If it's 100 out I would probably go with an unlined suede though. But we don't get much over 90 during the summer.

  I have tried a few Alden Long and Short Wings on and for some reason on my foot they just look like clown shoes to me. my foot is very wide across the balls of my foot and they seem to push out enhancng the effect with the rounded toe. That Leffot Antique took all my strength not to order and when Union Made put the those #8 shortwing boots up I must have gone to the check out screen 10 times...LOL 

There is a Two Tone calf LWB Alden on Union Made that I may order I love it.
Yeah, I have slightly wide feet, but not a EEE or anything. You're a 3E right? I can imagine that it would look exaggerated and be uncomfortable if the toes are pushing out the sides. The nice thing about the LWB (AE or Alden) is that clunky or hefty is the aesthetic and it looks pretty cool with jeans or chinos. 

Yes eee in some lasts and e in others...some thing with the way mY foot spreads when standing....just makes some shoes look so odd on me....the aesthetic of the AE wing by not being as large in the toe part seems to look less odd to me. I love longings and short wings though and they are versatile.

Thinking about sand suede players.. kind of loud, but might be cool for sipping drinks on the porch with a cigar....(I live in a tiny NYC apartment). 

 

Also, do people have experience with the fit of the Patriot Loafer? Thinking about picking up a pair.

I have both. I wear the same size in both.

You've been nothing but helpful and for that I am grateful. Have to disagree on the AE retail store though. From my experience, they seem to be most interested in selling a standard size at msrp to make quotas, and really don't care about fitting an individual customer. Maybe your experience is different than mine.

Exactly my experience; Nordstrom was my only solution as the only luxury (Logan's) store in Lexington KY simply stated they only carry standard width and wouldn't order in, etc.

I don't think they're loud at all. I was actually looking at the tan suede in the nuemok's
