Something with just a hint of sleekness? I like the Macneil, but the pairs I recently tried on all suffered from poor quality control.
Long Wing Options?
I had the same problem with my Macneils.
How's the fit--TTS?
The AE Independence Williams is the same shoe: http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF7602_1_40000000001_-1
With that said, I like the burnishing on the RL version better but if you need a specific width, it might be better to go with the AE version.
Sizing down on RLs’ …. your feet must be really narrow. I have 2 pairs of RLs both pairs runs really narrow and I should’ve sized up by 1/2 .
Actually wearing the Sanderson's today...I have a medium width foot and with a pair of merino wool socks, they're a perfect fit. After wearing today, sizing down a half size would not have been possible, not as much room in the toe box as previously thought!
If you're looking for a sleeker looking long wing you ought to try the AE Larchmont. It's a new AE wingtip on the new 333 last. You probably need to size down a half. I wear 10.5 and the 10 fits great. I am a huge Alden fan (as my name indicates), but for the money the walnut calf Larchmont is a heck of a deal. I like it better than the Sanderson and the Williams (which BTW I do not believe is the same as the Sanderson). Check it out...
