you should of gotten the regent street in brown instead.

I have BB black fifth ave & cole haan light brown walnut wing tip oxfords here is a pic: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-COLE-HAAN-AIR-GIRALDO-SLEEK-BRITISH-TAN-LEATHER-WINGTIPS-WITH-LEATHER-SOLE-/281095729458?pt=US_Men_s_Shoes&var=&hash=item41729c7132

 

I just ordered a pair of dark brown AE fifth ave, or should i return those and get different pair of dark brown shoes?

 

 

I think i need a pair of dark brown shoes to cover my navy and dark gray suits.

I have the light brown to cover my lighter suits, and my black shoes to cover my black suits.

 

what do you think?

I got some feedback from a few people here previously on the same question, I'm trying to get as much info on fit before I make the purchase. I am told it fits similar to the AE last #5 however i should go up a width... is this your experience as well? Thanks.

I just picked up a pair of Sandersons this week. I purchased them in the same size (10E) as my Strands. I find that the Sandersons are narrower, so going up in width seems correct.

Thanks hollyb. The Strands are a 12.5D, and the Sandersons are a 12D. I had the Strands first, and would likely have gotten a 12.5 in the Sanderson but it did not exist. So I tried the 12D, and while it is a bit tighter on the sides it wasn't too bad. I actually prefer this slight snugness and likely could wear a 12D in the Strands (the Jeffersons in the picture that I just purchased are a 12D). So at least for my foot, the same size in each works. I also purchased the brown RL Slaton cap-toe during the same sale, and it fits about the same. I really like both of these models and I'm glad I bought them. The tan Sanderson is pretty versatile, and I have worn them with casual dress pants and I also think they look nice with jeans. It would work with wool dress pants too, but I usually pick the Strands for these.  

 

BullseyeOr, how did you get the Sanderson in an E width? I didn't see any of these available when I purchased mine, and on the RL site they only list D widths. It would have been nice to try a 12E just to see if it fit any better, but overall I'm happy with the 12D.

I haven't been on here in a while and there are 16+ pages of posts that I don't feel like tediously sifting through.....

 

Just wanted to chime in on the CEO's offer for custom orders.  I've been in contact with a representative and they have started production on custom-sized Winhalls with J&R soles.  They estimated 8 weeks until it is complete and ready for shipping.  They didn't add any charges when I asked for J&R soles and they waived the usual custom-order fee.  I also requested a pair of Mora double-monks in shell (for later on and they made the same promises). 

 

So it seems that they certainly followed-through with their claims.  I'll post pics once they arrive in a couple of months.

patriot retail is 345 on sale for 179, i save 166, 48% savings

 

what would you do in my position. this will be used with khaki shorts. water can come into play by the pool or rain as well.

Gentlemen, thank you for your response! Looks like I will try my last #5 size and go up a width.
Shartmann - try the AE shoebank for the Sanderson in an E width, will be 2Q though.

I recently picked up a couple of belts from Equus in northern England. They have an affiliate thread here at sf.

 

http://www.styleforum.net/t/260644/equus-leather-bridle-leather-belts-official-affiliate-thread/0_100

 

I was drawn to their burgundy bridle leather belt as it was a subtle shade. I was hoping it would pair well with AE's burgundy shell, Alden's color 8 and perhaps even dark brown. I'm not one that requires a perfect match between belt & footwear as long as the colors fall in the same family. I am happy to report that as expected, it works quite well with the Alden & AE burgundy shades. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it also works well [IMO] with dark brown footwear like cigar shell and AE's brown calfskin offerings.

 

For reference here's a quick shot of the West End Bridle belt in burgundy with brass buckle.

 

 

Not that you guys need a caption here but...

 

L - R:

 

AE Tresana in "Cabernet Brown" (it's a real dark brown with hints of red/burgundy in the sun)

Alden shell Cap Toe boot in color #8

AE shell Macneil in burgundy

Alden shell PTB in cigar

 

And a link to Equus' site:

Note that ordering from the states allows us to deduct the VAT. My only regret with the entire process was why I waited so long to order from Charlie at Equus. Belts are made to order and take a few weeks.
