Flatirons are noticably wider, for me at least. They're on the 3 last, same as the Franciscans.

I agree - the 333 last is much wider than the 5 last. I have the 9.5D in Flatiron and Strand, but the Flatiron fits much looser. The Flatiron still fits, but it is a different more roomy fit.

Attached is the Tent Sale selection and pricing for 11.5D size shoes.

 

I was told EVERTHING in the store was 15-50% off. Lets see what great finds are to be had.

I got a price list for 12D and they are the exact same prices as your list so I am guessing that is the pricing.

Not that I need the temptation, but could you post the 12d list?

Woot!!!

I had been kicking myself for sleeping on the $129 chili lasalle during the memorial day sale.

Just confirmed they have one in my size! Add another to my collection:

Black Clifton
Burgundy McAllister
Chili Lasalle

Next up... Walnut Strands, Burgundy Patriots, Brown Neumoks

Does getting the Sanford in walnut instead of the Strand allow me/work to wear them with chinos?

Looking to add to my Merlot Mcallisters from the last sale.

Did you order or do they make us wait for tomorrow?

I wear my Sanford's with chinos all the time.  Just a bit more casual than the strands, so they are perfect.

Anybody have a pair of red Finches that they could snap some photos of while wearing?

Going to point out that there is a Walnut cordovan Dalton in 12D for $540 so that someone will buy it before I am tempted to.

post #23083 of 46469


I just picked up a pair of Rutledges and have several hours of indoors of break-in. I've read a lot of posts about the gap at the heel and I'm not concerned about the aestetics. I'm experiencing some pressure on my arches from the front of the heel. I'm wondering if any of my fellow AE wearers have experienced this and whether the insole eventually conforms so the sole feels even. Otherwise, the shoes fit great.

Thanks,
Todd

When I open the list, it says 11.5D at the top.

Yesterday I dedicated some tender loving care to my burgundy shell Leeds..

 

1) I stripped the excess cream with a damp rag and some (a lot) elbow grease. There was a lot of accumulation in some spots.

2) Using a cotton cloth, I then applied  some Allen Edmonds shell cordovan cream purchased with the shoes and let it rest for 1 hour.

3) Again elbow grease and a horse hair brush to remove excess.

4) Gently buffed with a flannel cloth.

5) Applied sole edge dressing

 

I didn't get the military parade shine I was requested to have when in the Air Force, but I am pretty satisfied with the results.

 

I will try and post pictures in the afternoon when I am back home.

 

What do you think of the procedure?

 

Speak now or forever hold your peace..

 

;-)

NO NO NO!!! You are supposed to apply the edge dressing BEFORE you do the cream!

 

Just kidding, sorry couldn't resist smile.gif. That is the exact same treatment I used on my burgundy Leeds for many years to good effect. I feel as long as YOU are happy with the end results that is what matters. There is nothing wrong with your treatment IMO. To maintain them I still wipe with a slightly damp rag and brush for ~5 min. then buff with a buffing cloth for another 5 or so. Great choice in picking the Leeds by the way.

Well because someone on here posted yet more shell pics on here recently, both the brown and burgundy shell Patriot's, I just hung up after ordering the burgundy shell Patriot's. They are taking orders right now for the tent sale. I love my brown shell ones and basically wear them every night after I get home and on the weekends. Despite having an abundance of exotic colored shell truth be told 50% of the time at work I wear black with burgundy a close second. And will wear them for a more dressed up look when required. First loafer that ever fit me, and I thank you very much for encouraging me to keep trying to find a loafer that fits. Thanks bucksfan, and good luck with your temptation resistance. Looking forward to pics of what you select next... devil.gif
