You can however thank me as you see Mr. Grangaard responding to me, something which most all of you have stated you want to see more of, right?

You've made your point. Mr. Grangaard responded. You clearly don't agree with that response. Do you think that if you keep calling him out that he will eventually agree with you and change their website at your request? Or do you so crave the attention that you simply can't help but respond by repeating the same point followed with cries of bullying?

In a sea of attention seekers (myself included) you stand out as someone who craves attention. It seems sad. You should get a hobby...or write a manifesto.

Or maybe he will actually answer the question rather than try to skirt around it as he has.

After seeing Cold Iron's incredible shell Dundee collection and also the shell Kenilworths, I've worked myself into a mental frenzy about seeing about Paul's generous SF offer for custom shoes. I am hoping they'll be able to do a cappuccino shell Kenilworth or the darker walnut shell. 12E seems to give me the best overall fit in the 5-last and also on the 8-last (Vernon). But I've seen a few mentions that the Kenilworth runs a little large. Since they are MTO and this is a one shot deal, do you recommend I stick with 12E or should I go 11 1/2E?

Any suggestions? Thank you.

Added a Vernon on the right to my wholecut Allen Edmonds collection. There some wholecut classics out there that I still wish I could get my hands on!

I had to go one width up vs the 5 last on these, as the D width was just way too narrow

AE still offers the Dundee which is a chukka. And a man can never have too many shell chukka's IMO:

 

Although the colors are more limited now. If a suede Dundee comes out in snuff I am all over it.

 

 

What is the break-down again on the above colors?  Clockwise - cappuccino, brown, burgundy, black, and walnut?

WOW! You have wanted those for years Adam, congratulations!! I'm really excited for you, that is awesome. 

 

Now you do know that due to your foot size you are well outside the range of Gunboats. In fact I think your in Aircraft territory here, something like the USS America:

****JPEG Compressor Copyright (C) 1991-1997 STOIK Software Ltd.****

Taking her through that ditch in the sand known as the Suez Canal on the way to fly sorties in Desert Shield which turned into Desert Storm. She was the finest ship to ever sail and with a name like America she had damn well better be. Just as I'm sure your USS (United States Shoe) MacNeil's will be the finest shoes you will soon own. Congratulations once again, Bravo Zulu.

Left bottom to top: Burgundy, Black, Walnut. Front bottom to top: Dark Brown, Cappuccino. HTH.

For your reference, I am an 9.5E in the 5 and the 7 last.  The length is very good in both, the 7 is just a touch more generous in the ball of the foot, which I actually prefer (the 5 last is pretty snug).  I wear a 10D in the 1 last, but i'm sure a 9.5E would fit in that last as well.

Thanks!  Would you say the Dark Brown or Cappuccino is closer to Alden's Cigar?

No Bravo Zulu for me- I received my McTavish 2nds today and they have a 1/4" gash on the driver's side fender.  The size was off too.  I'm always an 11D and I think a 10.5 would be better.  My other AEs are on a 1 (511) last and these are a 5 (65) last which I see is the longest last in AE's arsenal. 

 

Looks like I've gotta say goodbye.

 

 

Sadly, I have to pay for shipping both ways because I'm stationed overseas and can only receive packages via USPS.  Bummer. 

post #19559 of 48566

Which raises another question-

Do any of you deal with an AE outlet that will ship via USPS?  This last effort will set me back $40 for nothing. 

 

Thanks

You've turned into Reevolving. He's a douchebag too.
