post #62686 of 70737

What color do most consider to be the most versatile in the Maritime?

 

My most worn shoes are my grey Sperrys because they go with everything. They are about hit the end of the road though. I wear mostly black, blue, and grey shorts.

 

 

Also, any news trickling out yet about the RDA sale?

 

Thanks!

I love my sahara Sperrys and will be replacing them with the golden brown Maritime or the new brown Camp Moc.

I've been looking at AE loafers since I'm going on a trip soon and want something I can wear with jeans and a t shirt, or with khakis and a collar'd shirt. Can anyone give me recommendations on AE loafers I should take a look at? Right now I have my eye on the Aschers in Bourbon Calf. biggrin.gif

Patriot dark brown (if it can be had in your size)

Cavanaugh walnut or oxblood

 

The Asher would be good too though.

I just wanted some input on a new pair of park avenues. I exchanged a pair of size 8D for 8.5D because 8D wasn't fitting quite right, but looking at the 8.5D, it seems the cap on the toe is shorter/smaller than the 8D (based off my memory of the 8D). I don't have the 8D to compare it to side-by-side, but I'm not sure if this is normal or I got a defective pair. What do you guys think?

@OPTiK - totally would have said lake shore drive but its gone, so agree with Mr. K on the Patriot. I wear Maxfields with jeans a lot and one of the AE SAs wears his Rye with jeans, but I think the Patriot (or Ascher) kind of has a younger vibe.

Lake Shore drive is a good choice, can be had for $127 at the shoebank if they have your size left @OPTiK

 

 

Kenwood in Tan Saddle is the best answer imo. Beefroll loafers are great with jeans and chinos and the tan color could be dressed down or up.

Where did you get the catalog? Is it viewable online?

Just copped these from N Rack for $180. I'm very happy with the style and fit. Went up 1 size from my 5 last. They appear to be 1st quality and the price was fair.

Gents who owns any 5 last or mcallister in particular,

How does your heel fit?  Does it grip you tightly in the back or rather loose?

 

I'm asking because I am 8D brannock and I opted for 8E for mcallister for my pink toe comfort, but the heel is not as grippy and tight.

It is mad comfy though.

University with a leather sole? Did AE make them this way for awhile? Nice find!

I think it's more a matter of how the shape of the last works for you.  I'm a 7.5C brannock but wear 7D in almost everything.  I tried both the Kenwood & Sannibel in 7D - with really thin dress socks and a shoehorn I could force them on, but they were incredibly tight all over.  Tried them in 7E and the fit felt fine but the heel was pretty loose.  Maybe try the 108 - might work better for you (?)

My McAllisters heel fits very well, however the shoe hurts my instep unless I use sawtooth lacing to change the fit a bit. I also have a pair of Jeffersons that I got one size wider and the front part of the shoe fits fine, the instep fits well, but the heel is slightly loose.
