Jeans will work; shorts, not so much.

Every ones feet are different though, so your results may be totally different. I'm going to my local AE store to try some shoes in that last before I put in my order to be on the safe side. Last time I guesstimated my size in AE shoes, I ended having to adjust my size 3 times. If it wasn't for AE's great customer service, and the SA offering to exchange my already worn pair for a new pair in my correct size, I would have been stuck with some ill fitting shoes.

 

I have the Broadstreet in a size 12D, and all of my 5 lasted shoes are also 12D. They fit great.

Thanks for the response!

Sometimes you have to go to the basics.

This is my very first shell AE shoe from a while ago... obviously starting a shell habit.

Love the color in the sunlight.

This is without any filtering.

In other news... there are new kids on the block. Twins!

You didn't mean anything bad, I totally understand that now, MWS didn't mean anything bad, I didn't mean anything bad, we misunderstood each other (more than once it seems) so the point of all of this is.......... Hey nice shoes! I want some burgundy in my collection, but my wife is not a fan :(... any suggestions?

 

:cheers:

5 last: 9D
1 last: 10C (can wear 9.5D)
3 last: 10B

Order at least 2 sizes of the 3 last to get a proper fit. It is tricky.

Very nice Cambridges. They have a nice red color to them.

Just noticed that RL has Sanderson Suede Wingtips for sales for $195.xx with a good selection of sizes available.

Pretty good deal if you are in the market for a pair of suede dress shoes, I'd say.

Some AE for Ralph Lauren LWBs and captoes for around $150 with the current $50 off $200 deal.
You need some filler to get the LWBs over $200 for the $50 off.
The pre $50 off price also qualifies you for the free shipping.

:lol: Thanks, peppercorn78... It was touch and go there for a second; I thought I might lose them. After a short period in incubation and some TLC, they are ready for the world!!!

 

Let's do it! We going to Westmont? Field trip!!! (I haven't ventured outside the confines of 'Up Down' in Old Town!)

 

They are the merlot calf. The recent shell 'love-fest' in the thread made me think I needed to take that plunge, but 3 (seconds sale shoes) for the price of one (say, shell MTO) couldn't be ignored. I'm hoping the FedEx guy (with whom I've developed some rapport) will swoop in today with the rest of the lot!

 

...I'm surprised you didn't take the N.K.O.T.B. route!

Go for it, NWTeal... I was gonna go Mora 2.0, but EVERYBODY is pushing the double monk right now. Plus, I had no merlot, and they are ALREADY V-TREADED (-$50 MORE). Win-win!

No sweat, chinngiskhaan. Even the person who initiated this thread is a now-banned contributor, so there needs to be (and should be) some observance of decorum in the threads.  It's 'under the bridge' and headed downstream, my friend.  It sounds like you want shell (do they carry burgundy calf? I thought I read recently 'no').  When that merlot Mcallister hits my hands, I will have a little more perspective for you!  As for the Mrs...

Give her a dose of the "Flashy Thing" after they arrive!!!!!!  :puzzled:   She'll forget she wasn't a fan of burgundy!  LOLOLOL

I have a pair of MacNeils which are "brown burnished" in color.  The model number is 9242.     They were recently purchased as new seconds.   Anybody know if these are actually on the 7 last?
