Probably many more sizes too.

Quick testimony about how funky the 5 last is

Tried on the Strand, McGregor and the Macallister today. 12D in McGregor was very roomy but fit well. 12D in Macallister fit the best snug without being tight..would break in perfectly. The Strand in 12D was way too tight. Additionally I own the Fifth Ave in 12.5 D and it fits well. Just weird....

New loafer called the Ascher landed on the shoebank. Available in black, walnut, and oxblood. At least 75 pairs landed, so it's available in most sizes.

EDIT: I'm also seeing White Suede Leeds(!!) -- bucks!, the Grayson and Warwick being introduced in Oxblood.

Sorry if this is "frowned upon," but I thought I'd point out that you can purchase Jos A. Bank electronic gift cards at a 12% discount on Cardpool.com. There are a couple available right now (but the quantity available changes in real time). A $25 e-gift card will run you $22, knocking the price down to $7.33 each.

I'm really glad you went with a relatively dark welt/edge.  That way, now I know exactly what mine will look like if they ever make natural shell available again for MTO's. :)  Looks great.

Yeah, I hear you on the funkiness. I just posted the other day about the Black Hills 12D fitting me perfectly and both the Strand and Mctavish having a more roomy fit. I changed the lacing patterns on both and they fit better, but still not the same as the Black Hills. Got some tongue pads the other day that I'm going to give a try, but I think I may need to make another trip to AE to get fitted the next time I see a 5 last shoe that I want. It's odd, because I did go to their outlet store in Brookfield, WI to get fitted and the 12D Strand was what I tried on and felt best in. I cannot figure it out for the life of me. You're right, it's just weird.

The cart shows only 2 items after applying the coupon, is this normal? I'm trying to order 6.

And (literally) the other shoe has dropped!  Navy shell Leeds have just arrived:

 

 

Very intense color . . . at first I thought they might have goofed and sent me black.  Can't wait to get them in some sunlight.

So insane. Congrats, halfnhalfnhalf, both pairs are ridiculous. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

My Oxblood Daltons are all shined up and ready for Saturday! When I first purchased them, my SA told me to use the merlot polish that I already had for my pair of Walden loafers. Then, after reading here that burnishing was being removed with colored polishes, I switched to the AE neutral polish. The last time I wore them into the local AE brick and mortar, I was told to use black polish instead.

As a result, these have one light coat of each with a large amount of brushing and buffing with an AE cloth. These are seconds and were a bit splotchy in places that did not show up in photos, and while the neutral polish added some good gloss to the boots, the light coat of black polish evened out the finish pretty well without compromising the robust color.
