Do these look like real shell? I don't own any.... they're on eBay in my size, but need new soles I think.

Yup. I would only wear non button down shirts with a coat (blazer, sportcoat, suit). Anything else button down is needed IMO.

Will probably just try and find out for myself, but can anyone say how the overlord compares against the mctavish or black hills? Larger or smaller. Thanks a lot -

So what have people done for their cordovan special makeups so far? I'm interested in perhaps doing the Cornwallis in burgundy shell... but I don't know my size in that last yet - I only have experience with the 5, 8 and 1 lasts.

 

I am always amazed by the creativity of SF members.

Could you enlighten me about the fit oxford vs derby:

If Park Avenues (oxford) fit me really nice so that the quarters almost meet when tightened, does the McGregor (derby) have slightly lower quarters so that the shoe quarters have more space between them when the shoe is tightened? Thery're both on last 65.

(I have quite low instep so usually if a shoe fits otherwise, the girth of the shoe around instep is too big and the quarters meet so the shoe can't be tightened properly. With the last 65 oxfords the girth is perfect for me. I'd love a pair of longwings though but haven't ever tried on a derby on 65…)

Oxblood Daltons today...the squeakiest boot I own

Sizing questions:

 

I have the McTavish and Long Branch, both in 11D.

The McTavish have plenty of room in the heel and in the toe box, where even as I sit here typing this I can feel my heel moving around.  I don't need a shoehorn to put them on and they slide on/off easily.  Are these too big? 

The Long Branch are similar, in that there is plenty of room in the heel and toe box, but not as easy to take on/off due to it being a boot.

 

I also have the Strand in 11D and those fit like a glove.

 

The Fifth Ave in 11D were too roomy so I went with the 10.5D (which is weird bc it's the same as the Strand, right?).

I need a little AE advice.  I thought I'd post it here instead of making a new thread?  I need an oxblood/burgundy/merlot shoe for work.  I'm a doctor working in an outpatient clinic, so I wear dress pants, button up shirt, tie, and white coat.  I need SF's opinion on the Strand vs. Carlyle.  I probably prefer the simplicity of the Carlyle, but I don't want the shoe to be too formal.  So my question is, does the oxblood color tone down a plain toe enough to wear in the clinic?  I do like the Strand as an alternative, but I don't want anything too "loud."  I'd probably be going for the 5th Ave if it came in oxblood, but alas.

Have you seen the Carlyle in person? Damn good looking shoe sir. I would get the Carlyle if simple is what you're going for.

Walnut Wednesday: I'm wearing that shoe of which so many people can't understand the point.
