post #8041 of 70737
so I went back to another shoe store today and they measured m food and told me I was a 12B. Length of foot is 11.5, arch is 12.5, and width B.

Does anyone know if there is an AE shoe that fits true to size, what size would you recommend I get in the strand and park avenue?

Glad the Katmai works well for you. I ordered it in a special size. It fit well around my foot but the mouth was huge. Ended up exchanging it for the snuff Neumok. I'm going to try Viberg for my next boot.

1/2 size down from your TTS. They are both on the 5 last, AE's longest last.

Yep, but also consider sizing up one on width in the 5 last. This may not be as much of an issue for you since you have a narrow foot (my sig describes my own AE sizing).
I strongly recommend trying them on if possible though. I haven't been following the thread very closely for a couple of days, so maybe you've already said you can't go anywhere that stocks them. If so, I apologize for deadhorse-a.gif

Cold Iron, OT, but double is that in the background? I've never had a target shotgun, just field guns. Though I did use a BT-100 for trap a lifetime ago.

I just got back from the AE store near me. I noticed my walnut Strands are a lot darker... more "reddish" than the walnut Strands in the store. :( :( I wanted the lighter color.

 

Has anybody ever owned a pair of the Larchmont. I really liked them.

I'm curious about this phenomenon as well. I looked at Strands at Nordstrom, but they didn't have my size. I went to the AE store in Boston, and while they weren't able to price match, they did let me try on a pair of Strands in my size (I also bought a pair of Amoks there, so I wasn't totally a 'let me try something on you know I won't buy' person) and they were notably lighter in color than the pair I tried on at Nordstrom. The display pair at Nordstrom was lighter, but the ones they brought out for me to try on were pretty dark. The SA said something about how the display pair were lighter just from being on display, which didn't make much sense to me.
In any case, I'm going to order online at Nordstrom, but I'm worried I'll end up with one of the darker pairs. Should I be?

Also, I'm trying to get a handle on the polish recommendations for the Walnut Strands if I don't want to darken them up. Chili edge dressing? What color/brand of polish? I should stay away from the AE Walnut polish?

Also, has anyone gotten a belt from Narragansett leathers to go with the Strand? What color did you use?

Don't use the Walnut Polish. I would go lighter if you do use AE polish -- prob the Cognac.

If you do not want to darken your walnut Strands, use AE cognac polish.  Use AE chili edge dressing

 

This is how I like eBay auctions -- the only bidder icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gifhttp://www.ebay.com/itm/380457453641?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649&autorefresh=true#ht_501wt_1037

 

Are these Sanfords unsalvagable?  They appear to never been exposed to shoe trees: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Allen-Edmonds-Sanford-leather-wingtip-oxfords-size-9-5-D-/300751497565?_trksid=p4340.m1850&_trkparms=aid%3D222002%26algo%3DSIC.FIT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D11%26meid%3D983985831998241379%26pid%3D100011%26prg%3D1005%26rk%3D1%26#ht_500wt_1287

They should have price matched. They did for me on the McTavish, and for others on this thread as well. Did you talk to the manager?

The uppers on those sanfords look fine, however i think the main issue is the eyelets being wayyyy off.  at that price, these are definitely factory defects... if you look at the shoes, that right one is a fucking mess

My shoes look like AE chili not walnut.

Thanks, guys!  These shoes are awesome.  I could not recommend them more highly.  I have bought several pairs of AE over the last 13 years.  I can't believe I never got these before.
