+1.  That austerity brogue would look great in snuff suede or brown calfskin.

I think both have great MTO potential, I don't like how all the details have pinking though.

Those look great. I would call these walnut in today's colors.

 

Went with the brown shell strands.  For some reason, my iphone+flash oversaturates the color.  Really darker brown not orangy as they look here:

Those look like their golf offerings. Someone at AE is either getting lazy, or overworked with MTO when they release webgems the masses would actually want to buy. Those are awful.

One last question before (finally pulling the trigger). Lexington in Bourbon or brown burnished. Someone posted the bourbon the other day and it looked pretty good. I am looking for a solid mid brown tone. Not too dark but dark enough to wear with most things. Anyone have a good pic of an AE in brown burnished or perhaps thoughts on how dark brown burnished is?

Quick sizing question.

I have a fifth av. In 10E and fit is good, I'm lookig at buying a Strand from the Tent sale and the selection is limited in 10e , do you think there will be a big difference in fit between the 10E and 10.5D ?. Asking because the selection is way better in 10.5d.

Thanks.

The difference is minor and it depends on your preference. How does the 10E fit? If it's tight to begin with, then you won't fit a 10D, but if you feel relatively comfortable with the 10E, the 10D will be snug.

Another option you can consider is 10.5D. However, if the best fit by far is 10E, I would not compromise fit to save 20% or whatever the difference is.

I have two five last shoes, one in 8.5D and one in 8E. My preference is for the 8E. The fit is much better for my feet.

That's a hard/easy question to answer. The difference is a width but if you need wide width, you will need wide width. Don't compromise going a smaller size, you may end up with poor fitting shoes.

You can try looking at 11d, it has been reported here that at 10.5E will fit marginally the same as 11d, ymmv

I don't remember if I posted this here or in another forum.

Brannock doesn't account for volume, but see below for length and width comparisons for shoe sizes.

The one. I have is 10E and I'm ooking at 10.5d .

I know is hard to tell from a pic but Here's one and you can see the gap on my 10e's , the fit nice all around.

post #45540 of 53389

A 10.5D will have the same width as a 10E, but of course will be a fraction longer.  That means, basically, that the fit between your heel and the ball of your foot will be slightly off.  This can mean that the toe breaks in slightly the wrong place, which could be uncomfortable especially with a captoe.  So, my advice is be patient and only buy things in your size that you really like.

 

But, in the real world, if you are picking up a $99 bargain on the Shoe Bank, it's worth trying once.
