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.

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.

Never heard of him. You can try to be a bully all you want, it really doesn't phase me and only reflects back upon yourself. 

 

Don't be suck a jerk.

You must be a miserable, miserable soul. And I'm now blocking you as others have done in this thread. You have some serious issues that I hope you resolve soon. Feel sorry for you. eh.gif

With regard to the sizing: Some of the difference can be accounted for by the last. Additionally, the McTavish is made from cowhide, vs. most AE's in calfskin. Cowhide isn't as supple and doesn't form to the last as tightly, resulting in most people sizing down 1/2 size or width. Bummer on the gash, though...

What's the difference between cowhide and calf leather? I thought they were the same thing.

A cow is a grown-up tougher-skinned calf.

I won't even look at other brands like Cole-Haan that have gone over seas. Not only are your shoes great looking, but I feel good knowing that I am helping in a small way to employ Americans in an industry that had almost died out in this country. Thank you

Charles
