I've got some on order now. If they ever get here I'll give an in-person review, but I think they're a really great looking shoe. I went for dark brown. On the formal side, but not stodgy or too formal.
There's a certain place for understated but stylish and I think they fit that spot perfectly.
Hopefully that will talk you out of it.
I third that. Bought a pair of firsts last spring when they came out and absolutely love them. I think they're one of the nicest shoes I've seen from AE in the past few years. I also got the dark brown, and they are fantastic with much of my dress wardrobe. One note, though: You may have to drop down a half size. I did, and they fit really nicely.

They will eventually go to $157, if any are left, and will stay at that price for a long time. At that point they might not even have your size left. Ironically, I ordered a pair yesterday. They didn't have any seconds left, so I ended up getting firsts.post #70370 of 707372/3/16 at 7:03pmpost #70371 of 707372/3/16 at 7:04pmis it possible for one shoe to be larger than the other even tho theyre the same size? my left shoe feels a good bit bigger than the right and even looks wider so i measured it and its about a centimeter wider at the widest part of the shoe. the dainite sole is noticeably wider also. almost wondering if they misstamped the shoe a D when its really an Epost #70372 of 707372/3/16 at 7:17pmpost #70373 of 707372/3/16 at 7:32pmQuote:I wear a 13B in the 65 and 108 lasts. I tried on the Cornwalis and Yorktown (1943 last) in a 13B. They were both slightly roomier around the toes -- especially the Yorktown. I felt like the Corwalis would work for me, but not the Yorktown.
Your results may vary.post #70374 of 707372/3/16 at 7:44pmpost #70375 of 707372/3/16 at 10:06pmQuote:
I love the Cornwallis but can't make it work. I'm an 11D is most lasts (108 and 333 fit best), and 11E in the 65. The 11D Cornwallis was waaaay too tight (length and width) in the toebox. 11EE would probably be about right if that was a thing, which it is not. I'd say the 65 is your best barometer - if it's perfect for you, the 1943 might be a bit tight but could work. If it's looser for you, the 1943 could be a good fit. YMMV, of course.post #70376 of 707372/4/16 at 12:37am
Pairs nineteen and twenty—rounding out the family. I was looking for a couple of pairs of Black Balmorals (To go along with my Black Calf “Players Shoe” short wing blucher) and I got 'em.
Took about three months, but I found a pair of gently used “Fairfax” wholecuts with the interesting wingtip “patterned” brogueing AND a gorgeous pair of Black Calf “Carlyles”. Both fit perfectly and have minimal wear—maybe a year and a half-plus or more of wear out from a recrafting.
Total cost of both pairs: $150.00. :)
I'm right where I want to be Allen Edmonds shoe-wise (aside from tall boots—which I already have a few other brands in—Horween Leather USA Made Timberland Coulters, and wingtip-wise a pair of very nice Goodyear Welted John Varvatos')
(Okay...if a pair of 12D-12E “Portland” boots ever came up, I'd be willing to go back to an odd number of AEs, but THAT'S about it. LOL. :) )post #70377 of 707372/4/16 at 4:29ampost #70378 of 707372/4/16 at 6:49ampost #70379 of 707372/4/16 at 7:26ampost #70380 of 707372/4/16 at 7:45amQuote:
Brilliant. And once you start selling off some shoes it gets harder for them to keep up as well. (I had the rod issue as well. Having some excellent rod manufacturers within driving distance doesn't help).
