I see that the AE belts are 35mm wide, is this considered normal width for a belt when looking for one for a wedding as a groom ?

Or do you need to shop for slimmer belt ?

post #6782 of 49944

 I currently have:

 - chili byrons

 - walnut strands

 - black pa's

 

now looking to round out my shoes w/ the chocolate

daltons.  what do you guys think?

 - are the chocolate daltons easily dressed up or down? (jeans,chinos,suit)  I would think so

 - I wear a 9.5E in the 5 last, what size would you guys recommend for the daltons?

My dark brown cordovan Strands (seconds) should be coming in tomorrow or early next week.

So excited!

 

Already have black PAs so next up:
MacNeils in Burgundy Cordovan

and maybe Black Cambridge.

 

Methinks this might make for a decent rotation for any given week!

I might be different than others in this, but black cordovan looks kind of odd to me. I love all shades of brown cordovans though.

Have you seen the black cordovan in person? I have black cordovan Leeds and a pair of Aldens and find I prefer black calf due to the rubbery look of black cordovan. I would check them out in person before buying!

^ yeah my PAs are calf.  I'm not fond of black cordovan either.  Like you said, it's rubbery.

Would get the Cambridge in calf if I did end up picking up a pair

Considering traditionally a groom would wear a tuxedo with braces (rendering a belt moot), I'm sure you are free to pick any width belt in your situation (provided the width does not exceed the size of the belt loops on your pants).

Beats me, I'll have to ask my SA. Maybe a typo... confused.gif

It is my understanding that the Cambridge only comes in cordovan, and its calf counterpart is the McAllister offering.

Anyone have any experience with the Seven Collection Fabriano? I just picked up a brand new pair for a steal and just wondering what I should expect. I have the Vinci and Tresana so I am expecting the same type of quality and comfort with these, especially with the rubber sole.

The SA told me that I am a 10.5D and should sized down to 10D on the PA because she said that everyone size down on PA. However when I tried on the 10D my foot just hurts. as a result I tried on the 10E and 10.5D.
However, the 10E and the 10.5D feels the same. More interestingly, when I compare the length of 10.5D and 10E I don't see any difference. However I can tell that the E width is slightly wider than the D width.
just my review on the "interesting" 5 lasts.
I also asked her about the players shoe and she told me that it's one of their best looking shoe on the worst last and told me that it's one of the AE executive's favorite.
she also confirmed with me that there will be a new boot coming this fall!!!

Hey, thanks for this sizing info. I've only tried on one pair of 5 last shoes - the Strawfut - and I found it long enough but narrow. Your experience confirms mine. But if the E feels the same as the D, then I don't know what I'd do. I can't see sizing up in length.

And the comment from the salesperson is great! Best shoe/worst last about sums it up for me, too! Who are all these people with super narrow feet that fit the 2 last? Maybe the AE executive doesn't realize that his foot is narrower than average.

I guess both 10E and 10.5D doesn't really make any difference in terms of heel slip because when I tightened them they really feel about the same and the ball of my foot sits very similar in both sizes. The 10D feels tight enough that I want to take my shoes off so I think it's definitely not a good size for me.
Quick question for y'all. when you measure on the brannock if your toe is right on the line of one size, for example, I measure exactly 10.5D sock-less, would you take a 10.5D or 11D?

I would go up half a size. I can't stand to have my toes being pushed on; but I know some people like a snug fit.

How many of you wear your strands casually with jeans and etc? The Elgins look tempting but I already own a pair of strands in walnut that look similar enough...
