Very nice. I got the same and really like them. I decided to use merlot polish on them to shift the color just slightly. Not sure if it really worked the first time but we'll see how they look with time. I'll post pics if they do noticeably change. Why were yours seconds?

PSA: Hinsdale, Marietta, and Athens were just added to the clearance section of the AE site (now $227-247 plus 15% off for the RDA sale)

And weybridge. Too bad it's black only.

I really hate asking fitting questions, but I am desperate.

 

The only 5 pairs of AEs I have are on the 5 last. 7.5 E to be exact.

 

Some fit advice for a pair of Calf Dundees? (1 last)

 

MUCH THANKS IN ADVANCE!

In my personal experience I stay the same size just down in width. Right now I am an 8D on both the 1 and the 5. I could be an 8E on the 5 tho. Wish I did buy an E now that I think of it. Oh well.

I'm 7.5EE on the 5 last and wear 8E on the 1 last. But, some people say they are the same on several different lasts. So, I would say you're either the same (7.5E) or 8D in the Dundee. The only way I really figured it out was to try on several pair.

The left shoe is slightly imbalanced (I didn't notice until I put my shoes on the shelf) and some black marks on the leather that are pretty much unnoticeable after some buffing with leather cleaner. There's some wrinkling as well but that was bound to happen. I like them a lot and for $125, a steal.

I am an 8D in the 1,5 and 7 last. The only reason I would go 8E on the 5 in the future is because of my high instep. The length and width of the shoe is perfect on all those lasts.

Thanks for the responses. I was offered the AE cordovan belt at the outlets, I should've just tried it on. I probably would'nt even notice the tabs when wearing, so I might just bite the bullet and pony up for it now while it's on sale. sheesh, since the shell sale, and the 2/250 (i was able to get a 3rd pair for 125) AE is killing my wallet.

btw, so jealous that a lot of you guys were able to get other shell colors for $299, i was able to get macneil's and leeds in burgundy.

Wearing my BB Macneil chili grain's for the first time today

I hear you. If I didn't have nearly $500 worth of MTO goods on order right now I'd be jumping all over a new burgundy shell belt for $165. Hopefully I won't kick myself too hard years down the road for skipping it.

Those MacNeils look great!

I have one of AE's burgundy cordovan belts.  I like it a lot--I'm in fact wearing it today with some Color 8 Aldens.  They are made in the US of Horween cordovan.  The width is perfect is me (somewhere between 1 1/4 and 1 1/2 I'd guess).  It can be hard to find properly wide belt these days given the trend towards slimmer belts.  Mine has held up very well and required virtually no maintenance.  Keep in mind though that AE has recently deepened the color of their burgundy shell, so make sure the belt is the shade you want--the newer belts may be the darker shade.  Otherwise, I really like Kleinberg belts and they have a burgundy calf shade that matches the older AE burgundy shell shade pretty well.

What's the price on calf Dundees? I'd be interested in a pair.

I have the same sizing.  I'm 8D in 5 last and 8.5C in 1 last.  I'm 8.5C in the Brannock for reference.

I'm in deep.

I ordered the Dalton's in burgundy cordovan. That's in addition to the brown cordovan Jefferson & Patriot webgems.

You guys are enablers!

Alright.

I think I gave up on the idea of buying dress boots for bad weather because really... why would I buy something to destroy it like that. Chances are I'll pick something up for kicking around town someday, but for now I'm figuring out which pair of black AE boots to pick up.

I already have daltons, so should I get the dark chocolate pair or black? Or does a fiftth street in black make more sense. Basically I'm going to get something that I can wear with jeans or to work. I will be wearing these with boring... I mean black... pants as well.
