Not that it's definitive, but I was in my local AE the other week and one of the workers said that he thought that Strands and Daltons would be on sale during the RDA sale. I think it's sometime in Septemberish.

Did you try having them stretched?

 

My advice would be to pick up a stretcher of your own to make adjustments to your shoes when necessary.

Walnut McAllisters today.

On a side note, what is the sizing like on the suede Strandmok? I'm a 10D in almost every last, but someone mentioned the Strandmok seems to run about a half size bigger so I was considering a 9.5 D.

Can anyone comment on that?

Navy and grey pants is what I normally wear my black larchmounts with.

Edit.. Some unasked for advice. But I think your outfit would be tonnes better if you wore a well fitting button down shirt (long sleeve) instead of that polo. Also, PERSONALLY, I am not a fan of tucking in a polo shirt. It screams IBM tech support nerd.

I'm thinking about picking up a new pair of AE's off the clearance sale. I'm leaning toward the Rogue. I have a pair of Merlot McCalisters and a brown McTavish. I'm a 9.5 3E in the 5 last....how does the Rogue fit?

I can only speak to my own experience and specific size issues. I, too, have EEE feet, and a high instep. This causes an unacceptably wide V closure on the 65 last with balmoral shoes like the PA. The 65 last is also tight in the toe box and vamp on one of the feet. I then bought the Rogue on the 201 last. The toe box is roomier and the blucher laces allow more room in the vamp. So my Rogues fit far better than anything I personally tried in the 65. I do find the Rogue feels a touch too long for me. However, dropping down 1/2 size in length does not work, so I I just ignore it. They look pretty good when wearing them. This is a reposted picture.

I suggest looking at Allen Edmonds Fit and Sizing Help written up by @Neo1. I have found it to be pretty accurate.

@Echoes14 Unless you feel like you're borderline swimming in those others, absolutely get the same size.

If you sized way up in width due to instep, you could likely drop down in width with the rogue (maybe even to E). Length....eh, I wouldn't.

I have sorta the same problem in the 65 last...high instep, laces a little wide. Going up a size, I feel like I'm wearing clown shoes, though. Sounds like the Rogues will do just fine for me. Thanks for the input.

@amphillips79 If you're a perfect fit with the mac, sizing down on the smok 2 probably won't work. Likely a 10 will fit sloppily in width. Personally id pass - better stuff out there.

I didn't size up for the McCallister. I went to the store here, got measured, and they put me in the 9.5 3E, due to the normal length being a half size down thing with the 5 last. They're actually quite comfortable, and other than the V closure being a little wide, they're perfect. The McTavish feels a lot roomier, though I'd read that before.

A question for you Sea Island owners.  Where does you big toe reach relative to the moc-stitching?  

 

After some experimentation, I'm almost certain I'm an 8.5D (didn't have one to try, but got my hands on 9's and 8's), but I'd like to be sure before I give up on 8's.

 

Edit: Also how have they broken in? (i.e. are they looser width-wise).

Perhaps they have broken in some but I found them to be pretty forgiving immediately. My big toe sits on the stitching from the sole if that is what you are asking. I dont even notice it, really since the first wear. Even less noticeable if you wear those no show socks for those shoes. I have an 8.5EEE.

This seems like a good spot to insert a shoe/slack color chart from Real Men, Real style. You can click the link for a broader discussion for those so inclined.
