Long Branch 13D will fit you...I wear 13E Long Branch and 12E on the 65 last for blucher and 12eee for 65 lasted bals...

 

The 13D will give you a bit of extra volume but you will want that to account for boot socks.

Who even calls a color cordovan?  Someone trying to trick people (like me)
I say just call them burgundy 

Technically "cordovan" is an older (like from the 70s) term for the color burgundy, as classically shell was only offered in #8. But yeah, he is trying to trick you.

As some products like kiwi wax in burgundy are still labeled "cordovan color," he can claim innocence. But really, he knows what he's doing.

Always look for the words "shell cordovan." And pay close attention to the creases in the pictures. When in doubt, post the link here and ask for advice.

Thank you. I'm trying to track down a pair now.

Maiden voyage . . . navy shell Leeds:

such a stylish makeup...I'd give anything to see these with some Tan, Cream or Orange colored laces.

 

Thanks, that's a great suggestion.  I don't think of swapping out laces nearly often enough!

Does the style of these boots limit their usefulness/versatility? Does the tweed limit wear to strictly to fall/winter months?

Thanks in advance.

 

I bought the Brooks Brothers version a few months ago.  It is the exact same leather color (which is easily the best of the 3 colors AE has used for the Shaker Heights boot) but the navy/red/green tartan pattern instead of the tweed.  I was a little hesitant about even wearing them out in public, but have gotten consistent compliments on them (and I'm being serious, I've worn them 4 times and have had ~10 people comment on how cool/nice looking they are).  I work as a resident physician in an outpatient-based specialty, and my usual outfit is chinos + button-up shirt, no tie (with white coat).  In the winter I usually put a sweater over this.  I don't have any fit pics, but I've generally been rocking navy or dark khaki colored chinos with a grey or navy sweater (obviously not the navy pants/sweater together) and a button-up underneath.  In my opinion, it looks fantastic, but then again my office is not very stuffy and the dress code is such that wearing a sport coat or suit would be majorly out of place.  So if you're looking to wear them in a more formal setting, I'm not sure what the best advice is.

I got a pair of seconds in this week. Give me a little while and I'll take some pics.

For a casual shoe, which would be more versatile:
The Rush Street in olive green, or in navy?

Navy

I like the navy. I don't really care for the natural finish on the edge of the sole.
How do you think it would look with chili edge dressing?

This is such a stellar model....the eyestays nlike the EC/ER and Bayfield are the perfect length down the boot which does not cause the bottom part of the eyelet flap to curl up...If you put this design on the B34 (Odenwald) last it would be KILLER for MTOs

OK, fired up the good camera for you! Luckily the battery still had some charge in it.

 

I'm guessing the reason these were seconds is the right shoe is not centered. Otherwise, they're very nice. Especially for $157. One thing I noticed in the third picture: the tongue is stitched to the vamp.  Couldn't see that in the picture on the shoe bank site. 

 

The 65 last fits me well, but I am on the fence about keeping these because I'm feeling a slight bit of heel slip in these. The blue AE socks I'm wearing are not very thin, maybe medium weight, and I feel a little motion even with the laces cinched tight.  I've run my finger across the lining, and it's very smooth/slick compared to my others (Bleecker, Black Hills, Cambridge, and Randolph).  I'd say the Randolph's lining is almost as smooth as the Mcgregor's. 

 

Does anyone know if suede linings are different than for leathers?
