That is probably a good place to start...My pair I sized in my 511 size...and they are a tad tight and long...actually I have to check may have gotten d width and not e....anyway if it turns out I wear them a ton this spring I will probably look to get a better fitting pair and I would do my 65 Balmoral sizing.

Word of advice - try first. My 65 size didn't work, neither did length and or width changes. Shape just didn't work for me.

However, McAllister is usually on sale during the anniversary sale in all colors.

Ah, well this is great news. The Strand/McAllister is really interchangeable for me as I'm just looking for a brogue oxford.

 

When you say "anniversary sale", are you referring to the pricematching AE does in July in light of NOrdstrom's sale or do you mean the RDA event in october?

Stopped by the AE store yesterday where @garland helped me out by sending my Banchorys in for recrafting after the tongue stitching came out...

 

Today... maiden voyage of my Snuff Gobi:

The anniversary sale is in April.

I am in the process of making this very purchase myself, and am very comfortable with the same 8.5D I wear in everything else.

With all of the comments about sizing in this thread, I wanted to throw my two cents in...

 

Does anyone else here wear Tulliani socks? They have been life changing for me. They are extra thick, but extremely comfortable. I don't get hot wearing them, but they make certain shoes fit a little snug. Well all of them, it's just more noticable in some vs. others, and "better" in some vs. others.

 

I highly recommend the investment, but I am not responsible for any addictions.

I will also add that a pair of tongue pads on my Franciscans makes them fit like a glove. My first variation of a slip on and I am very happy.

There's an AE anniversary sale in April and a Nordstrom Anniversary sale in July.

For the McAllisters I meant the former.

Regarding the April Anniversary sale...a search shows me that in previous years "select" models were on sale. How likely is that to include the Carlyle? That had been my target, but I'm wondering if I need to advance my plan to buy it on 3/12 to get the free belt instead.

Cool will grab a pair to check out...I pretty much buy socks now to fit my shoes...Long Branch, GMTO shell Bayfield and MTO Shaker Heights(I ordered a width larger) all get boot socks as they are the winter warriors. My shell Leeds, GMTO shell Townley, CXL Alden boots all get medium socks and the rest of the shoes and boots are standard weight dress socks.

 

My wife who once thought I was a moron is now convinced

Haven't posted in a little bit due to my vacation in Hawaii right now. Had to escape the winter in NY, but it looks to be warming up. Went to a wedding yesterday and wore my $127 bitter patriot suede Patriots. Didn't even have a seconds stamp and I couldn't see what was wrong with them.

Thank you, peppercorn. Is the April sale as steep as the Rediscover America promotion in October?

With the New 201 last coming out recently, does anyone have a picture of the Strand and Rogue next to each other?

Nearly certain that the Carlyle will be included in the April sale. The McAllister will also be on sale then.

No, the RDA sale is the biggest AE does.

Aw, that's surprising. The lowest I saw the strand go is $325 last year. Please let me know if what I saw was not accurate.
