No, it's 15% off anything that's not featured on this list or already marked down because they're Closeouts. The $159 for Brooks Brothers or Ralph Lauren models does not get an extra 15% off.

I need to stop. STAHP AE. 

 

Stop putting ridiculously great shoes on sale!

Saunders and Sanderson in Snuff Suede on the way...

About the same as 5 last?  I've come to the realization that I'm firmly in the E width territory.  I have to choose my sizes more wisely or be content with going up in sizes and beating narrow shoes into submission.  For 5 Last I think I need to go into EE to get the most comfortable fit.  Its really a bummer as EE isn't a commonly used size, which means less seconds and more custom orders.

I wear 11.5D in Strands, McTavish and Neumoks.  Got a screaming deal on Daltons in 12D, and while the ball of my foot is snug, I have heel slippage which is annoying.  With the Saunders in 11.5D they fit perfectly...if anything, a little snug around the balls of my feet.  But length is great and almost zero heel slippage.  If anything, I tie them loosely to avoid cutting into the top of my feet.  TTS if you ask me.  In McTavish and Neumoks I also get a bit of tightness at the 'ends' of my small toes, but no such tightness in the Saunders because of the rounder toe box, I guess.

 

Hope that helps!

Saunders in snuff suede sounds really really tempting... damn it Masernaut!

The bourbon is actually much darker than walnut, which is a surprise to me.

 

(The walnut strand is 5 months old.)

I have the same size in the Clifton and Vernon (both 8 last, though the Vernon is a balmoral). The Clifton does fit a bit looser even when tightened quite a bit, so I think I could have easily gone with a 1/2 size down and been fine.

Anyone want to chime in on this? What was that plain toe oxford that was suitable for black tie?

I don't have a Twitter, but if I did, I'd request they bring back the Bayfield, Hale and Evanston.

Chiming in with the Westgate. AE really needs to offer wholecuts once more. The Berkley was a nice wholecut, too...

AE still makes the Bayfield for Lands End.  Evanston and soho are great suggestions.  I'm also partial to an old version of the Clifton, which was an 8 last balmoral with a well placed cap toe line.

Maybe the Byron?

This is true, but only in a dark brown D width.

Question:

If you had to pick a shoe that represents the spirit, the history, the tradition and the uniqueness of Allen Edmonds, what model would it be?
In other words, which model of Allen Admonds IS Allen Edmonds?
