That is a very good question.  All of my AE belts don't match the shoes like I would like.  I have ordered belts by trial and error to see what works.  My bourbon Manistee looks walnut, my merlot one looks red and my walnut one I returned to Nordstrom because it was 2 shades lighter than my shoes.  I think AE has room for improvement here.

What color are you looking for?  Are you looking for a detailed belt or a plain belt?

These are 11.5D and normally in a 65 last I wear a 12D.  

 

Most people wear their 65 last in 1/2 size down and up a width from their usual size.  You might try 12.5 D or 12.5 C if your 65 size is 12 D.   What do you wear in most of your AE shoes?

I'm open to detailed or plain. Looking for something to match a pair of brown burnished mcallisters.

You could try something like the Dupont Ave.  Pretty slim pickin's it looks like on shoebank.

If I were in your position, I would go to Nordstrom and browse their belts.  They have lots of different brands that are equally as good or better than AE belts.  If you don't mind buying something other than AE, then I would do this.

I don't own a Randolph, I'm sure @Neo1 could comment though

   I took them

11.5D Blucher and 12D Balmorals. The boot has me thrown for a loop.  It's roomier I guess because it is a boot, a little slipping with the heal.....toe box about half a thumb's room.

At the Rack I once purchased a $100+ Hugo Boss belt for $5.00 and a Canali shirt for $5.00. The clerk told me that some items which don't sell go to a Rack store in/near Phoenix called Last Chance. When something doesn't sell there it goes back to the Rack and is $5.00 regardless of what it is. I imagine that was the case here.

But why would they do this on an item that is not being discontinued?  I could understand if this was a clearance belt.

OK - in all seriousness - if any of you out there has these in a 12 EEE and is willing to part with them, let me know!  Or, if you're not willing to part with them but maybe can be convinced too.
