post #20731 of 42906

lol

 

So, the Lord & Taylor deal is pretty good, it seems to me.  And may get better on Friday when a new code ("Ultimate") kicks in for 25% off, if your size is still available.

 

So, with all of that in mind, I have a sizing question.  They have sizes like 10, and 10W.  Is the "W" equivalent to "e."  Anyone know?

 

EDIT: looks like the strands, and park avenues are all sold out...

So we can't acquire new cordovan shoes so that someone can have a cordovan candle? Seems to be misappropriation of resources.

it's just the scent of cordovan, no cordovan is actually used

I see ^ I use my cordovan samples as car fresheners and hang them from my mirror.

Thanks for the advice. How the heck did you get them for #30?!

One last picture of the Burgundy shell Leeds before I send them back.  7D in Leeds just wasn't working. Thanks to AE's customer service I well be able to exchange for Black Shell Leeds in 7E instead (decided I was ok on Burgundy shell front with Cambridge and Macneil......)

I ordered the walnut Dundee now trying to decide If I should add a espresso Leeds. Any one have a pair they can show me

These are all indoor shots. In natural light the difference between the two shell models is more noticeable.
The only improvement I could see making to this model would be adding a double leather sole, akin to the Cambridge model.



 

 

Do you wear the same size in shell and calf? It looks like the calf version is slightly slimmer than the shell version.

Once again you and I have very similar tastes. I am trying to decide on a cappacino Leeds or Williams. I am probably in the minority here, but I prefer the Williams to the MacNeil

The Strand and the Dundee in this picture are the same color - brown.  The Strand is olive-ish and the Dundee is a good solid brown.  Also may depend on the finish.  The MacNeil and the Leeds in this picture are the same color, but with a different finish and passage of time.

Is it a good idea to lace your shoes up tightly for storage with shoe trees? Or is this just done for appearance in the photo?

I like the williams allot and that would be great in shell. I thought about it myself but having three shell LWB I decided not. I think I am doing the Leeds

With a lighter edge trim to make it just a bit more casual?

post #20743 of 42906
Yes I believe so

I finalized my order today for walnut shell Leeds in 10C. Dainite sole with midsole added; brown split reverse welt with light brown welt stitching. I will wear the shoe casually and wanted a rubber outsole for wear in inclement weather, as needed.

I'm curious as to why AE seems to have so much shell available but Alden seems to have 0. Perhaps forward thinking by Mr.G and company to stock up?
