I would LOVE to have those.  Unfortunately there is no navy or natural shell leather available.

If you're talking about the shoes I think you're talking about (or their shell brethren), the Alden-for-Brooks tassel loafer has been a staple of prep and political menswear for nearly sixty years.

(For myself, I'm perfectly happy with the $299 shell Grayson seconds I bought this time last year from the shoe bank.)

I LOLed at the part in that NYTimes article where the price for alden shell loafers was 315$

FWIW, There's a 10 D Dalton in chilli calf  on Shoebank for 197, much lower than other colors. That's lowest I've seen for Dalton

Opinions on how Mora 2.0's run? I'm a 7.5 D in Mctavish's, an 8 D in Cliftons and my Dalton's that are an 8 D are slightly snug (an 8 E would be perfect I presume).

 

I've read that just because one shoe is on the same last as another doesn't mean the sizing will be the same....

I have a Dalton 13E and it fits great - perhaps a touch long but with no 12.5 nothing I can do about that...My Mora 2 is 13D and would say it is snug and a touch long and 13E would have been better...

 

one day I will order a 12eee just to see how it would fit though I fear the EEE width might throw the whole look a little off

Actually AE did make a clown shoe at one point for Ernest Borgnine.

 

 

He even toured the factory.

I guess I should check out a shoe in the store based on the 2592 in 10.5E and that would settle it.

 

Thanks

 

My new Rush streets.

 

 

The rest of my shoes (not counting my vibram five fingers).  Fleuvogs, Hugo Boss, Magnanni and AE.  (there's no polish on the black Magnannis, I stripped it last night because I botched the last polish job I did with too much polish, have to polish again tonight or tomorrow after stripping them last night)

 

I'm also dying for a pair of cognac McTavishes, a pair or two of loafers and then I'll move on to some of the more formal models.

 

 

Do you happen to work for Ringling Brothers?

Want some more clown questions? How much is the shipping cost for AE 2nds to Canada? What do a pair of levis cost with all the taxes over there? Leave that guy alone.

My Daltons in 10E fit pretty well and Mora 2.0 is 10D are touch snug but still wearable; may be a 10E would have fit much better.

Cool video.  Thanks for posting.  I enjoy seeing the different videos ae puts out from time to time.

Shipping is $45 USD and ships via FedEx, you will be responsible for local taxes upon arrival. Will actually be ordering a pair of Clark Streets for my brother in law tomorrow along with a Natty CXL Sun River belt.

 

 

 

Does anyone have experience with those Sun River CXL belts? Seconds are down to $59 so I was going to snag one as that puts them at about half the price of the Rancourt one I currently own. Hopefully they are pretty solid quality.
