I went from a 11d to a E myself. I would suggest though trying to get a pro measurement and trying some E width on. While you're there try some other last as my size can change according to last.

Thanks.  I actually just ordered the 11E to give them a try.  The only bad thing is that I've worn the 11D twice already, so I'll have to try to sell those or give them to a family member...

Thanks.  I like the snuff better, but the brogue suede is more versatile.  Probably why AE selected it.

There is no way to know until you try.  Generally the issue in going from a D to an E is that the heel gets wider as well. As an example, I cannot wear the 8 last because a D width is too narrow at the ball of my foot, but my heel swims in the E width.

Spent approx. 1 hr with the Mac method on my Cambridge last night. They are getting there.

Just ordered a pair of Tan suede Amoks, $99 is a steal. I Really hope they fit! I wear an 8.5D in the Leeds but an 8E in the Dalton and Dundee; I went 8.5D for the Amok

Wow. I wasn't the only one who remembered these and tried to remake them. From what I understand, they never made them above a size 12D.

They were a limited release in the Rough Collection. Only whole sizes were made (at least the ones sold on the main site). They discounted them on the main site down to somewhere in the realm of $175, I recall. Then at one point, they decided to just clear them out through the outlets at $129 a pop for firsts.

I also ordered a Leeds in Cappuccino Shell...with a chilli/brown edge (as found on the chocolate suede Players), wheeling, and brass eyelets. I saw something similar on an Alden Cigar PTB special makeup that one of the European retailers did. I figured that if I hate the eyelets, I can always have them removed.

That may not be the case.

 

If you are close to a AE retail location they may take them back as an even exchange.

Those look nice.  I'm liking the Cambridge more with the new AE #8 shell color.

My Cordovan Daltons; they need some work, but worked with a brush for about 1/2 hr total...coming along!

It truly depends on the SA at the store. I have recently had some amazing customer service at two of my local stores, totally blew me away!

 

I think especially when it comes to sizing, AE understands that it takes expert fittings to get the correct fit and they want to make sure you are comfortably wearing their shoes.

Anyone out there find a Chili colored belt that matched up with AE's hue?

 

I know they have the basic belt, but anything else from other retailers?

This is somewhat similar to my Leeds. However, I did dark brown cordovan with antique brass eyelets and a slightly different edge trim
