first even though i was at max width 3e it was tight so i think if i went with a D or a E no way my foot would have gotten in without creasing it. these shoes are beautiful but definitely made in mind of narrow feet.

sending them back thanks for all the help

Being far far away from any Allen Edmonds store or Brannock device, I've printed out Allen Edmonds Shoe Fit Guide.
http://www.allenedmonds.com/wcsstore/AllenEdmonds/Attachment/content/size_and_fit_guide.pdf

Has anyone used it and found the results accurate?

Had a quick go at sizing myself with it and it's telling me I'm a 8.5D in US sizes.
This might explain why the one pair of AE shoes I do own, (Quinton), are slightly tight. They are 8D. Thought the length on them seems fine, it's the width that's tight.

My wife will probably be visiting the US later this year and I'd love her to pick me up one, (or maybe two) styles of shoe that you really can't find in Europe. Quintessential American classics, longwing bluchers, and nice saddle shoes.
I'm thinking MacNeil and Shelton.

Yeah they look sweet and for $90! A steal. Too bad they are not a 10D

Here are some pics of my humble AE collection. Sorry for the weird angles. Clifton, Park Avenue, Rutledge, Montecito.

They all look great. Love the Walnut Rutledges. Question- is there a reason you use the Mens Warehouse trees in your loafers?

Never seen a thread with so many questions about brands of shoe trees...

I received my first two ever "seconds" today from the Shoe Bank. I think I'm quite pleased but just had a few questions and would appreciate your opinions.

 

The Elgins look great and considering AE no longer sells them and I don't see them on BB's site anymore, I'm happy at $179. I can see why they are seconds but none of the flaws bother me or can't be cured with a few minutes of care. I got the same size as I take in the McAllister - 7.5E. Some have said that the "rough" collection of leather run a bit large and these seem to hold true to that. However, my problem has always been that my left is 1/2 larger than my right. So, in the McAllister my left is a little snug and the right is perfect. In the Elgin my left is perfect and my right may be slightly loose. My question is this... in looking at the picture below, you can see that the laces are very close together on the right shoe. Once this shoe breaks in should I worry that I won't be able to tighten them enough. What's others' experience with shoes in general when they fit like this out of the box?

 

 

The Sheltons I also received today seem to clearly be a case of someone buying them, wearing them around the house for a few hours and then returning them. There are creases across both vamps and the bottoms are slightly roughed up. I guess the upside is that they appear to be "firsts" that only became "seconds" because they were returned. I can't see anything at all wrong with them. The downside is I'm wondering since they are already creased if now they won't crease on my lines and either be uncomfortable or have weird extra creases. Should I worry about that? Is it normal for "seconds" to be pre-owned or are they typically just flawed in some other way?

 

Thanks!

Shoe trees are said to be the number one shoe care accessory to purchase. It's ok to ask questions, want to make sure you get it right.

Not really, I had them previously and didn't feel like getting more AE trees. Maybe I'll switch them out to some AE trees at some point in the future, but there really isn't any reason. They get the job done. And yeah, the Walnut Rutledges are pretty awesome. Probably my favorite AE shoe.

Thanks for finding this and posting, CI.  Very interesting, as I just received my Webgem Daltons today and the color isn't too dissimilar.  I'm very happy with my Webgem Daltons and am Mac Method breaking them in already.  The above (Gwinnett) appear to be just like a Dalton except it's a medallion PCT rather than a WT.  And I might hazard a guess that's it's on the 5-last rather than the 1-last.

 

Here are the new Daltons.  I love the color.

Pic shoes your pants cuffed? Is that how you always wear your pants with Dalton's? I have 2 pairs of Long Branch and am considering a pair of Dalton's but curious if I would need to cuff my pant legs to show 'em off
