Agree.  Single sole works with flat welt.  And this example really looks good by the way.  I thought you were going to choose split reverse, that's why I made a comment that the double sole would make the proportion better.  Good luck.

lol, no worries.  I do find the uncle/nephew thing to be very creepy, to put it lightly.

haha...I see your point. I don't ever see a time where AE and Alden won't be compared/contrasted.

I've decided on all of the other details of my MTO outside of the sole/welt.  It's between a double butyl sole w/ split reverse, a single butyl sole w/ split reverse (think Neumok's), or a single butyl sole w/ flat welt.

+1!!!

Each has a place in my rotation. I appreciate them both for what they do well. I don't see it as one being definitively superior to the other. Each is different enough IMO to justify owning both.

Check my pics earlier in this thread. I have a pair of Niles in brown.

Anyone have any idea how Parks, Fifths, and Strands fit relative to the sizing guide?

I think the discount is typically 14.92%.

Which would make the shoes that always come in brown cordovan cheaper than the webgem. If you want the Jefferson though it's the webgem or nothing I believe.

The pair that started all of my mad shoe collecting. The AE Players Shoe in Walnut Calf.

For those of you that might own two of the same model shoe, one in calfskin & one in shell, do you change the size?  I know that with shell versions tend to be a bit roomier, but is it enough to warrant a size change?

 

{apologies for all of the questions lately}
