post #23881 of 46882

Can any of the owners of the RL Sanderson comment on how you like the shoe and how they they tend to run? As a 9.5EEE in the middle of nowhere you guys are  great resource while at the same time a horrible influence.

 

Also if anyone has the old AE Bel Air I would love to hear a comparison on the two as well.

First, they are great looking shoes. I have the dk bwn ones and they look outstanding.

I wear 9.5D in most of the AE lasts. The only tight fitting last is the 4 last for me. I will usually go to a 9E in 4 last. Thus, I say the Sanderson tends to run TTS.

If you have wide feet (EEE) don’t bother with Sanderson. They run narrow. I am a size 8E to a 8 EEE. And have the Sanderson in 8E. They feel like a 8 B.

Thanks guys, read the details online. Appears both are made on same 333 last so...if Franciscans fit me at a 9D then I'm gonna order the same in Neumora. They do look slick

....

 

I wear 10.5E in three different #5 last AE's.  They are all "comfortably snug."  (But, I had to get my right foot Strands "slow stretched" by the guys at the Plano store.  They've told me I need about a 10.5 E and 1/3 smile.gif ).

 

My Sandersons in 10.5 E seem to fit about the same and they seem to accommodate my high instep a bit better (a supposed advantage of the #2 last on which they are allegedly built).  The build quality and leather seems to be at least as good as my Independence line Jeffersons.  My browns aren't as striking as the tans but might be more versatile.

 

If you can find a 9.5EEE at a decent price, I wouldn't shy away from it. 

post #23886 of 46882

Thanks guys - when looking online I have only been able to find 9.5D and 10 D so my concern as a half size and EEE is that I would have to be in the 10D range in order for the shoes to have a shot at working for me.

 

Since I own the AE Bel Air in walnut I have been leaning to the Sanderson in brown to fill a hole in my current line up, but I am not opposed to the tan if they are great shoes.

You have some nice shoes there. I have a pair of older Cambridges that have aged nicely with time. I am not nearly as big of a fan of the new AE Burgundy shell color. It almost looks like a cooked lobster to me. Nothing like Alden's eggplant Color 8...

I got to say that the Patriot brown is rather splendid.

Thanks. That's too blunt and rounded at the front end too. AE perhaps is not for me. I'll stick to the Europeans smile.gif

The entire rough collection isn't made of Dublin.  Dublin was one of the predominant leathers used when the Rough Collection initially launched in 2011, but since then it has branched out into other leather sources.  I don't pretend to know what they are.  Allen Edmonds won't say what all of them are, but looking at many of them in person will show that they are made of different types of leathers.  The Neumok and the Sedona are definitely not Dublin.  The Tan Finch, Natural Dornoch, Natural and Cognac McTavish, Cognac Ridgeway, and Cognac Rapid City certainly are (as well as the Tan Nashua Tassel Loafer, which isn't part of the Rough Collection).  The Elgin and Stewart were made from the same leather, and they have a decidedly different finish than Dublin.

I gave them both a good brushing, some AE cream polish and a bit of wax on the toes and heel counters.

I don't think you will be disappointed. 

 

All my best,

Bought my Long Branches 2 weeks ago, and the store just credited me back the difference between what I paid and the new Clearance price ($103 savings)

Strange that this would happen. I've usually been pretty pleased with how true to life the pictures that Hitch and Post has on their eBay listings, but I agree that the pictures are probably skewed by the lighting in these pictures.

I noticed after ordering them that the soles are different so it made me wonder whether there are other differences.  Also, are these eligible for AE refurbishment?

 

Read through these posts and see if they help regarding the differences between the BB branded AE's and the regular production AE's.

The answer to all of your other questions is yes.  They are made on the same lasts, they will recraft them, you can use whatever brown polish you like, and you can use AE's cedar shoe trees.

Thank you, I like the "old" burgundy for the less formal shoes, new burgundy is very nice for more formal shoes.  You are right, it's not the same as #8 but at least the pair I have has nice coloration.
