Check out the lasts my friend. Dundees are on the 1 last which is wider than the narrow 5 last.

He is probably referring to the AE Polish or Conditioner.

I ask because I bought one at a local cobbler only to later find out it had a substance that would also waterproof, thus also making it hard for my shoes to breath. I didn't end up using it.
I'm not sure which c/c MWS is referring to but Saphir (Saphyr?)cleaner/ conditioner(Renovateur ) will not effect the breathability of leather . It does however contain mink oil which is often used as a waterproofing but not in high enough concentration to cause this problem .

Everything about that ensemble is awful; the tie is just one part of an otherwise frightening whole.

I am interested in getting my first loafer, but I'm not a big fan of the penny variety. I like the sleek lines and simplicity of this shoe. Does anyone own it and have in the wild pictures?

Tassel loafers in shell cordovan are terrifically classy; they are also, IMO, the most formal of the loafers (tassels, full strap, penny).

I am referring to Allen Edmonds Conditioner/Cleaner. biggrin.gif  As englade said, I don't think you need to worry about breathability of the leather.  Unless perhaps you are using way too much.

Thanks. I'll give AE's a try.

In other news my Delreys in Chili came today!

perhaps but there is a stark difference between fashion and understated elegance.

Though, the simplicity of slipping into the Hillsborough was appealing...especially when it's raining, due to the rubber sole.

 

Has AE ever made a wholecut loafer? Something like this...

 

 

They have the Ann Arbor on the clearance list currently, but it has a cemented sole.

 

Not exactly like that, but the discontinued model, Astor, is a wholecut tassel loafer.

Gents, I noticed a peculiar problem with my brown shell Patriot loafers about a week back. If you look closely in this picture (I apologize for the picture quality but my camera is not very good at taking macro shots), there appears to be a dent which looks like a crack in the shoe. This is just one of three on one shoe; the other has dents but not enough to become cracks. 

 

I've applied renovateur and cordovan cream to challenge the idea of it being a welt... and it seems not the case. I've only worn these shoes about eight times or so; is this crack my fault?

I cannot see the crack you are referring to but to put your mind at rest there is nothing you could do to a shell cordovan shoe in 8 ,or even 80 wearings for that matter,that would cause them to crack unless they are defective . I am sure that if it is a problem AE will make it right
If you are interested there is an Allen Edmonds /Horween promo video wherein the AE rep mentions the fact that shell cordovan has a tendency to crack during the lasting process . This could be what you are seeing

Anyone know how the size of the Sedona's run?  They are on clearance now and I will pick up a pair for the summer.  In most shoes I am a 13B, but I plan to wear these without socks so I might try a 12.5.  I'm not sure whether to go 13 or 12.5.
