post #21931 of 51071
Quick quesion: Does a pair of McTavish fit the same as a pair of McAllister of the same size given that they are of the same last? Are there any other elements that cause them to fit differently?

I have a pair of the latter and am contemplating pulling the trigger of a pair of the former.

TIA.

My Mactavish seems to feel looser whereas McAllisters fit very snugly.

I sized down a half size from Mcallister to mctavish. The rough leather does not fit as tightly over the last.

I was asking this same question a few pages back in the thread and the consensus was that the McTavish do run a little larger even though on the same last (presumably from the different leather quality). There was someone (maybe two folks) who said they wore the same size in both but generally they seemed to run larger. I just order a pair of Elgin seconds from the outlet which is on the same last as McAllister and McTavish. I have two McAllister so once I receive the Elgin in the same size I'll report back on the fit. I was told by the saleswoman that these are AE Elgin not the BB version.

I have no particular need for either, but with the discount, either is a pretty good deal. 

 

I don't have any balmoral shoes to date but do have a black shoe I can wear formally. I also have other pairs of brown shoes already too. 

 

 

Which would you choose? I'm not looking for any more wingtips so that is not up for consideration. 

you only need 1 black shoe, get more shades of brown. the strands are a great pic. also you should add a suede shoe or loafer to your collection.

the fit guide measured me as 11 on one leg and 11.5 on another, so i went with a 11.5 as it recommends?  or did i screw something up?

you printed it incorrectly. you have to change the settings to actual size and not fit to page. i did this as well and there was no way I was an 11 or 11.5

you fit is exactly like mine, you are most likely a 10D.

I use thicker socks in my mctavish, and i use thinner dress socks in my mcallister. i have both in the same size, but with the thicker sock my mctavish fits perfectly.

What do I need to do in order to pretreat/protect and care for them thoroughly? I have avoided suede shoes up until now because I know it to be a nightmare to take care of and almost impossible to clean once stained. I have heard there is something I can treat them with so they absorb a protective barrier. Any advice?

Cold Iron swears by this stuff to protect his suede footwear. On his recommendation, I purchased some and have been quite pleased with the results.

Thank you all for your prompt advices. Much appreciated.

I neglected to mention that I have a pair of Ridgeway (which is presumably the same shoes as McTavish) that is half size down from my McAllister; while wearable, I find the toe area a bit snug-ger than I would have like.

With that, I have decided to order the McTavish in the same size as the McAllister. Perhaps I belong to the small minority that needs to wear the same size as their McAllister.

Chocolate brown calf Byrons today. Usually my office is more jeans than wool and more sneakers than leather, but occasionally I get tired of not wearing a suit.

As has been mentioned several times already, the Memorial Day sale on seconds has some great buys on BB versions of some AE models. Is it always the case that the BB models are cheaper? Always the case when there's a sale? Or is this unique and if I see a model I like and there's a BB version in my size I should jump on it before Tuesday? I've bought several pair in the past month so I'd rather wait but for $159 for some BB models it's hard to pass up (unless that's always the case).

 

While I'm at it... I'm a 7.5E in McCallister (5-last) and just ordered some Sheltons (1-last) in 8E on Amazon and they seem to fit perfectly. I have a pair in 8D coming as well from Amazon just to compare but those won't be here until this evening. Assuming I am 8E in the AE Shelton what size do you think I'd take in the BB Shelton seeing as the insole is different and some have commented that this affects sizing as the BB insole takes up more room in the shoe?

 

Thanks for the insight!

do I just reply to the email I received the seconds list from to place an order?

If you reply to the email and tell them what you want they will hold it for you. I then called to speak with someone and give them my CC information. I wouldn't want to send that via email. Also, if you're not already in the system they'll need your name, address, etc.

just call them. if you can't reach them, call another outlet store. an email might not be read till hours later and someone who called may snag the pair you wanted from right under your nose.

Thanks, they are MTO so you have a lot of options when it comes to the soles. Here is a side view:

 

If your interested in picking up a pair send me a PM and I will fill you in. From what little I've seen of your shell collection Calikid the Dundee would be perfect for you nod[1].gif
