These are my shell daltons in burgundy I got during the $299 sale.

interested to know how you size in the Dundee, and how it fit.  Also pix!

 

Most go TTS up up .5 from their Barrie size. In 1 lasted boots I actually prefer same size but one width out. So for me 8D Barrie = 8E 1 last boots. I go 8.5D in 1 lasted shoes like the Leeds.

I tried on the Leeds and went 8D (same as Barrie). I went with the same size in the Dundee. We'll see...

I wonder what's the reason a V-tread tap sole can not be applied to the MTO MacNeil on a double sole? I do see on AE website that it can be added to a regular MacNeil for an upcharge. Is this an idiosyncrasy of the J&R sole?

 

On an unrelated note, did someone ever opt for the blue or/and red leather lining on his shoes or boots? I'd love to see the pictures.

I wear a 12D in Strand. Have it in Shell and Calf Leather. I also have a 12D Parkway in calf. It is a bit narrower and longer. However, I have no issue with either of them. At first I worried the Parkway would be to narrow. After a few wears it fits great.

Wanted to share my 2 for 250 experience. My RL singleton loafers had bowing in the collar and were a poor fit. But these Brooks Brothers MacNeil black grain are nearly flawless. Very satisfied. I just didn't know they had so much padding in the forefoot as opposed to stock AEs. I'll pay $125 for these any day.

Does anyone know if the upcoming sale applies to 2nds as well as firsts?

I was wondering this myself.

I'm pretty sure it does.

post #29890 of 46873
Pretty sure first quaity only.
post #29891 of 46873

I am almost positive the Independence sale will only apply to the firsts. Moreover, there's no reason to buy 2nds with the 15% discount, since you can get 25% off coupon at Jeffersonville OH store any time.

Has anyone here bought a pair of Portland dress boots?

 

They look badass and I really want a pair.

Scott,

 
will you try to exchange the bad pair? If so, let me know about that experience… restocking fee or not?
