:eek: 

 

What's even more impressive is that they sold out at that price. ;)

 

I have a pair of seconds that seem to be this exact makeup that I got off eBay for $300. I really like them. Keep in mind you could get a MTO from Allison for much cheaper, plus you can pick from any other customization you'd like at the same time.

Yes, that was the first thing in my mind.

Any thoughts on a MTO Promontory Point?  I'm thinking of a black calf skin upper with independent lining.

I just got some new inventory posted up in B&S and thought I would share some of the pictures here of a pair of FSC Fifth Avenues I picked up.

The leather on this pair is outstanding, extremely thick, almost as thick as shell cordovan. Any ideas on the specs they are using for this leather?

Hey guys, super quick question.

I have daltons in an 8.5E and they're a hair more wide than I'd like, but fit fine if I play with the lacing. I'm thinking of picking up a pair of Park Ave's in 8.5 D, will that be fine? I was previously fit in an 8E PA, but don't know if there's much difference between the 8E and 8.5D. Additionally, almost all my other dress shoes are an 8.5D with a couple that are 9D's and still fit fine. The only thing that hasn't fit me is a shoe that's a 9D but fits slightly big and an 8.5C. Those were mistakes! Heh.

Hi all,

 

with AE.com's measurement, I get 

- length: 8 right on

- width: W7 right on

 

I've tried Lasalle 8D and thought that

- length: perfect fit

- width: tight and starts hurting the pinky side of my feet longer I wear, I started feeling sore & pain.

 

I'm thinking of ordering *Parkway* size 8D, but based on the allenedmonds.com,

parkway runs wider than normal AE shoes where Lasalle runs either *true size* or *narrow*

Would you say I would feel comfortable in 8D ? or should I order 8E?

 

It is unfortunate that any local store in Toronto do not carry different width length. They only carry normal D.

 

Can any of you give me some feedback ?

 

Thanks,

Welcome, James. Good choices with the Daltons and Cliftons.

 

I'm in Austin, too. Hope "cedar fever" isn't affecting you as much as it is me.

Sounds like Horween's Chromexcel or Essex, to me. Hopefully someone can confirm/deny from your pictures.

Ready for whatever Mother Nature throws today. Grey Long Branch needed some attention... Should I HDLP these? Love the color, don't really want themto darken.

That color is awesome - a pair of these is in fact en route to me right now (firsts for $159 - thank you, Vincenzo at the Shoe Bank!) and seeing yours is making me totally stoked about mine.  I'm interested in care suggestions as well.

Damn damn damn... that picture is only making me want mine back! Hopefully they can fix them and send them back soon.
