I have found the 2 last to be nothing short of miserable. I have tried on the shoe in question and didn't care for it.

Absolutely agree with this! I had a brief infatuation with the New Orleans but I had to get rid of it...I wear an 8.5 D and I felt like my feet were completely disproportionate relative to the rest of my body to the point they felt like clown shoes, I can only imagine what the 2 last looks like on someone with even bigger feet. Then again, I tend to wear slim and tapered jeans and pants.

Beautiful. Is the Stratford made by AE also?

I wear a 12EEE in Strand and Park Ave in the 5 last and just bought the 12EEE Rutledge which I tried on yesterday.  The Rutledge seems to have a slightly higher instep and slightly narrower toe box.  The Rutledge fits me absolutely perfectly and are super comfortable, best fit other than the Neumok for my feet.

The Stratford, the Sanderson, the Singleton, the Saunders, the Slaton, and the Gatsby are all made by AE.

 

I know the Sanderson in Tan Calf is popular, but I favor the Tan Calf and Khaki.

The shell Bradley seconds I picked up a few months ago continue to come to life after a lot of brushing and conditioning...

Yes as CH mentioned. Here is my version of AE for RL tan and khaki (Illford) along with tan Saunders, brown Sandersons. mwink[1].gif

Checking the closet I see I have to start enforcing the one in one out policy. Also if AE ever makes the Dalton in suede I'm sunk...

What happens if you drop it off at a retail store?
post #27941 of 46525

weird. I had a shipping label from j'ville sent over earlier this week. no mention of a $10 charge.. guess I'll wait to see what my CC shows in a week or so

Gorgeous. Your post coincided with me coming to terms that I have short/ wide feet with a high instep and probably am not a good fit for the 5 and 3 lasts. I might just have to try out the 1 lasted Leeds and Bradleys soon!

They are gorgeous and I'm a bit sick to part with them.  However I need to thin the herd - I've got more shoes than I need and some expenses coming up that I have to deal with.  I work in academia so these shoes don't get enough sunlight (I have a pair of brown and burgundy wingtips, non AE, that pair better with most of what I wear to the office, and some black cap toes, Clifton, for more formal occasions, and that's not mentioning my spectators, Strawfut, and boot collection, some of which I'm selling off as well).  Good luck BCer!

There were to many excellent replies for me to multi-quote them all so I'll just say it to all of you.  I appreciate all of your input on my questions about shell cordovan.  After reading what you have to say, as well as the links you posted, I have learned a great deal about shell, and why people like it.  While it does have unique characteristics about it, I have concluded (perhaps unjustly) that much of the appeal of shell cordovan comes from it's exclusivity, after all that's part of the joy of owning a great pair of shoes anyways isn't it?  Not saying there is anything wrong with that, but at this point in my life (I'm 24 and still a student) I feel I just can't justify the purchase of a shell cordovan shoe, but there is a small chance I will indulge in the distant future.

 

Regardless I am still amazed at and grateful for the lengths you gents go to in order to lend a helping hand to some random guy on the internet.  THANKS!
