the football grain leather is uniformly-sized-grain, while the other ("tumbled") grain leathers are supposed to haev some randomness in the grain (but tend to be rather uniform as well). The big difference if you can feel the grain pretty clearly in the football grain, while the other grain leathers feel less grainy and smooth out at the toe and other areas where the leather is stretched (such as the strip with the toe perfing in a wingtip)

Cheers - anyone have some good photos around of the brown grain? Really can't find any!

Hi guys,

I found my Mcallister at 7EEE is about one sixth inch longer than my Park Avenue at the same size, comparing the length of the sole. Is this normal? Or Is there something wrong with this very pair? Or should I just size down?

Thank you.

Thank you.

Comparing the length of the outsole is not an accurate way to measure the shoe for fit.

The outsole can easily vary by much more than you mentioned.

The AE San Marco was made in brown grain.  Googled images.

Finally received my webgem cordovan Jeffersons. I ordered these before allenedmonds.com accepted international deliveries so I had it shipped to my in-laws in the US and they only managed to send me these last week. Took about 7months!

They look great! The only problem is I ordered these in my brannock size 8.5D and I recently realized that for 5-lasted balmoral 8E fits me better as it reduces the vgap between the eyestays. Oh well Im just hoping that my feet will sink in nicely into the cork foot bed and that this will help reduce the v-gap.

Congrats on getting them. That is a pleasant surprise. Bummer about the sizing. You going to keep them or sell them then?

Just wanted to update on an issue I mentioned a few weeks back where it felt like I was squishing air out of the toe whenever I would take a step in my strands. I went in to my local AE and explained the issue while also demonstrating it. They offered to send them back to Port Washington amd have them looked at. Keep in mind these were seconds that I wore for just over a year.

About 2 weeks passed and I followed up with the store to see what the status was. Turns out they were deemed to need a full recraft and they had actually been finished that day. So all-in-all, AE took care of the structural issue with the shoe pretty quickly and at no cost to me, even on a pair of seconds.

Problem with selling them is that if I wanted to get a new pair it would cost me about 100 more as the webgems were 545 is I remember correctly. Shell cords are now 650 I think.

That said as these probably won't get as much wear just because of the gap I am open to selling these to someone in this thread at cost. To keep it in the AE appreciation family :-)

Call Allison and explain your situation. She may sell you a new pair at Webgem price. Doesn't hurt.

Damn, those are gorgeous. Makes me want to wear mine, even though I won't have reason to wear a suit until classes start in September.
