I have never called and ordered directly from the CAC. I call my local store, and they place the order from the CAC. There is always a significant delay from the day of my order and the actual shipment date.
It would probably help if the SA wouldn't tell me that "it will ship out tomorrow." It never does, and they just shouldn't say it. That becomes the customer's expectatation. And then the company falls short of meeting that expectation.

@Kahuna75 My thoughts almost exactly regarding the Sauk & freiburg...are we like related or something?

Mechanical keyboards rule - so BB had the G710 for 59.99 as the DotD not too long ago but not anymore. For black Friday im pretty sure they have half off (msrp) all the g-series stuff for all day Fri & sat (and Thurs night possibly) - should include the Orion...don't see why it wouldn't. Wish it included the orobouros - I just can't justify that purchase at msrp - but I don't think the sale included razer.

What I have so far is:
- Fifth Aves (Dark Chili): look good, a little snug in the toe. May get more 65 last shoes but would like a better fit.

- Ashton (Walnut): surprisingly doesn't fit well. Pinches at the little toe on both feet, but particularly the right one. Comfortable enough to wear to work. Would not want to walk around in these all day. Would not do 678 last again. 

- Sanford (Walnut): Fit like a dream - if anything perhaps too much room up front. Finally found a shoe that looks good and fits well. 234 last seems to work. Only current shoe is the Addison which I don't really want. 

- Nashua (black): should be here today. I'll see how the 114 last does for me.

 

Given this any additional thoughts on styles to consider? Rubber sole would be helpful since I live where it's wet 8 months out of the year. 

 

Pic of my Sanfords. (They look better with blue rather than black jeans.)

 

 

Sanfords look great.

@mreams99 Agree with mreams 100% on this. Dealt with both the store and CaC. Fastest it's ever been is about 6 days, usually closer to 10.

I have managed to come upon another pair of Bentons in chili, and this duplicates my existing pair. Since I have very little invested in these duplicate shoes I was considering send them in for a new sole. Anyone have an opinion or experience is switching out the existing rubber sole for a leather or a mini-lug? Would the mini-lug be creating a butt-ugly shoe or creating something interesting. It would obviously be a casual and "outdoorsy" feeling shoe at that point. All opinions welcome, especially pictures of any Benton modifications that are out there.

Greetings,

 

I noticed the Rothsay as a limited run for the Black Friday sale. I've been doing a search to find out more about the last and the fit, but it seems previous runs of the style were made using a different last.

Does anyone know about this new 1757 last? The AE website still doesn't have any info on it.

I also called them and all the information they had was that it was "more roomy in the toe area".

 

And for those of you who may be familiar with it, how would you compare it to other popular lasts, such as 65 or 511?

How TTS is it really? Has anyone sized down a half size for these?

 

At the very least, how does the Rothsay (even if it was previously on a different last) compare to other AE shoes in terms of sizing and comfort?

 

Many thanks in advance!

My AE exp., I have a Gobi in 10D (great fit) , and Strand 10.5d (good fit but not great, a tad narrow in the toe box and IMO heel is too big in proportion to the toe box.),my instep is in the mid-low side.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry for the quote, Anybody?

I believe no one owns them yet as they just released them 2 days ago...willing to be wrong - My guess is it a last between the 201 and the B34 by the looks of it...I would order your TTS and a size smaller then return which does not fit...

For me the 201 seems to fit like the 65 with a fuller toe...odd that you went a larger size on the strand than the gobi..I have to check my gobi but I think I am a 13 in that and a 12 in the 65 last

I actually purchased a cheap Benton for the sole purpose of having a mini lug sole or full lug sole put on them...turns out the pair I got the eyelets are misaligned...though when my foot is not in it they look perfect ...very odd.

To the extent cordovan-only custom orders are available, does anyone have an SA that they can refer me to? Either PMs or replies here would be greatly appreciated.
