Thanks in advance

My typical Dalton size is 13e...I was recently able to fit in a 12eee...which is also Eagle river size. I sized the Eagle river boot same as my 65 last balmoral

Thanks for the pics! They look more walnut than bourbon in the pics. What polish do you use? If I wore more casual Friday type clothing, I'd put those on the list.

They are darker i person. Noticably darker than walnut. Ive worn with navy and charcoal

This is just a Tuesday rant so please don't pay attention :) I was a loyal customer of AE for many many years and just a few minutes ago I was going to renew my Black Shell Cordovan Randolph's so I visited the AE website. A few years back I remember writing to Paul Grangaard regarding the very high courier charges to send a pair from the US to Switzerland and since then they have partnered with Bongo International for shipping outside of the US. To make along story short when you checkout the pair of Randolph's sold for $650 now become $742 (billed in Swiss Francs) and the cheapest shipping is now $70 (also billed in Swiss Francs) and add to that duties and taxes and the 650$ pair turns out to cost over 900$ delivered. Something is very wrong here gents ...

That sounds about right I think duties and taxes for shoes made with American leathers like shell coming into the EU has increased. That's why if you buy cordovan from Carmina in EU it costs more than shipping to the U.S.

$900 for loafers is certainly wrong!

I failed to answer your inquiry regarding polish. I use the AE premium polish, Bourbon comir, very light coat

Burgundy Shell Bradley today. I used to dislike the split toes but the look has grown on me since.

I used to feel the same way and thought "they are like frankenstein stitches" but now I have 2 pairs of Alden's split toes and a third on pre-order...  The Bradley's look like a nice option as well.  For me, I just appreciate the hand-stitch/detail of it now

Thanks! I too have two Alden NST on pre-order and still kicking myself for passing up the Union Made Hunter Green Suede one...oh well. I wish AE would do a Bradley Boot

Discontinued before I had a desire for it. We tried to do a chocolate/Dark Brown version of that when the GMTO first got approved and we either did not have enough to do it or AE would not bring back the style - The Portlant actually had a pretty low profile for a boot from what I recall - would love to see it wrapped on the B34 last-

Speaking of the Frankenstein reference, the eyelets on the left shoes are grossly misaligned. For now, I try to think they are adding characters.
Anyone know if this can be corrected during the recrafting process?
