I didn't like any dark brown or bourbon in Park or Fifth Ave but loved the Strand. Again, personal preference but for me it was much better to see them in person if you have the ability.

 

Any suggestions on a darker brown shoe to consider looking at when I stop in?

EDIT: In case it wasn't plain, this comment is directed to Fiddle's post above

Thanks for the responses.

 

I have a AE store near work so I'll have to stop in again. Last time I was in, I just looked at the walnut strands and fell in love with them. I really just wish I could buy them all, seems much easier than choosing one over the other.

Looking at buying a PA from the tentsale , I don't own any AE ,anybody knows how the sizing compares to Alden's Barrie last? Heard that the PA runs long and narrow?was thinking going with an E wide and half size smaller?

Also do you know if the Tensale allows returns/refunds in case they're not a good fit.

Thanks.

 

It would be difficult to give you an accurate comparison between Alden's Barrie and AE's 5 lasts, in my opinion, because neither run TTS. I, like most others, find the Barrie last runs up to a full size larger; AE's 5 last is definitely narrow. 

 

The Tent Sale does allow returns, just don't scuff up the soles

I would probably just keep them but email AE and see If they would do anything about it. At the price of mto, it shouldn't have a flaw like that.

Fiddle, I have the Strand in both Walnut and Dk Brown and latter is also stunning. PA or FA in brown also a good choice, or what about one of the current Chili Webgems from the AE site? I also own the Clifton in Dk Brown but I think it's discontinued now; I got mine as seconds for $129. A wealth of great brown choices for you Fiddle...truly First World Problems LOL! J

Grr - So they don't have a 7.5E in the Walnut 5th Ave.

Any ideas what size would fit as well as my 7.5 EEE Hale?

First World Problems indeed! I'm really on the fence on how I feel about the Chili Webgems, I'll have to seek out some actual pictures of them. This is probably a dumb question, but are Webgems in stores?

I don't think the webgems are in stores. But trust me, the chili color is gorgeous. Here's my Daltons:

I would keep them. It looks like a pretty small flaw and is in an area that's least noticeable. I would let the folks at AE know about it and keep an eye on how this spot wears over time. My guess is it will be fine, but if not and this just gets worse then maybe you could exchange. These are incredible looking shoes, but you need to make sure you will be happy with them and not always looking at and thinking about this section.

I finalized a custom order on Friday, and Allison at AE mentioned there were several MTO's that had just finished and were ready to ship. She didn't want to give away the details to keep it as a surprise, so I have no idea what was made, but she did say she was really excited how they turned out. Apparently some of you have some creative, one-of-a-kind makeups coming. I look forward to the pictures!

I am looking forward to my custom order to come also. I finalized 2 weeks ago. I am doing a MacNeil in tan suede with a single oiled sole and a medium brown edge trim.

I'm a huge Dalton fan so curious as to what Dalton mto you ordered, if you care to share.  And pics please.

I happen to like Strand in bourbon. If you like something with less detail perhaps the Kenilworth. If I remember correctly the Clifton (Nordstrom) comes in dk brown. I think the Flatiron is a nice shoe in brown with just a little detail. If you want to spend some more money the Rutledge in walnut is gorgeous IMO. The other thing to consider is something in merlot. I love my merlot McAllister. It's a very versatile color.
