Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread 2016 - News, Pictures, Sizing, Accessories,...Quote:Originally Posted by jet-streamQuote:
The poron insole takes up a bit more room than cork. The 65 last is not great for me (I'm between 11D and 11E), but a 65 with poron fits me pretty well (in 11.5D). In a different last, I have more overall room in the non-poron version, though the same size works for me in both.
Bottom line: if your AE size is snug, you may want to size (or width up) in BB.
I have the same issue. Try 12C.

A week or so back I discussed the 333 last and gave a description of the 1943 last I received from Paul Grangaard. Mr. Grangaard said:
"For me anyway, the 333 had a pinch in the little toe, a long extension beyond the toes that could cause the shoe to curl a bit and to break across the captoe itself (and I could catch the long toe and trip) and it was flatter through the instep. So, essentially, it had the three problems that we fixed in the 1943. However, no two feet are the same. It's possible that the 333 was a great fit for you and I'm not disparaging it. The 1943 should fit a 333-fitting foot as well as a broader range of feet types. That's why we re-did it."
I said I would report on a comparison between the 333 and the 1943 when it arrived. Sadly, the 1943 fit me almost the same way the 65 does. Very tight across the vamp and the V opens to over an inch at the top. From my now very limited experience the 1943 does not work at all well for my high instep in a balmoral lace. Given the tightness of the vamp, I doubt it would work with a derby lace either.post #1895 of 151143/9/16 at 9:24pmpost #1896 of 151143/9/16 at 11:12pmpost #1897 of 151143/10/16 at 2:32ampost #1898 of 151143/10/16 at 3:16ampost #1899 of 151143/10/16 at 3:52ampost #1900 of 151143/10/16 at 4:08am
I did have a lot of free time yesterday. Home on bed rest due to a medical condition.Quote:

Those are the khaki pebbled McTs
I've seen five models - not sure if there have been more.
4035 - Tan McTavish - waxed tan leather upper with a light tan colored storm welt and edge
4045 - Cognac McTavish - darker reddish-brown upper with a dark welt and dark chili edge. There can be a lot of variation in this color - I've seen some that look like the 4035 upper with a color consistency that runs from a fairly consistent tone to a variegated/mixed tone, and have the dark welt/edge (my second pair are veriegated/antiqued looking - I love 'em).
4047 - Khaki grain McTavish - a pebbled light tan upper with a dark welt and what appears to be dark chili edge (as seen in the video)
4005 - Black McTavish - matte black upper with a chili edge and welt
I've got a pair of the 4035's and two of the 4045's, one dark and the other more tan/antiqued. Not really interested in the other two, though I'd probably get the black if I wore black shoes - the lighter chili welt is a cool contrast IMO.
This is great, thanks for the info and everybody else for posting, extremely helpful as now I can just search by model number. It sounds like I'm interested in the 4035,4045, and definitely 4047. The McTavish definitely looks like a very nice shoe. The first thing I did when I woke up this morning after wondering about the tightness on the pinky toe yesterday... I thought about it and I was wearing regular socks, a little on the thick side (dickies work socks). This morning I put on dress socks, way thinner. With the dress socks fitment is no issue at all. Pinky/little toe feels fine even on my left foot which I think my left foot is a very tiny bit bigger than my right. So I think if I want to keep these Neuomks fitment def won't be an issue.
I'm extremely torn about keeping this color. It actually is pretty cool lighter brown. I can wear it with literally anything. I know with a suit it might not be the best shoe to wear, but definitely would be passable with the traditional brown laces in (I have the red in right now). Debating more.........
PS - thanks again all for the info on the McTavish. I still am in the market for a VERY light brown, more of a light tan than a brown (almost yellowish I'm thinkin) like that vid I posted. So maybe I like all of them, but if I keep the Neumok my goal would be get a khaki 4047 as I think that's definitely a lot different color than these Neumoks and diversifies my shoe portfolio better. I have some black dress boots and some black passable dress shoes I can use for a while so not interested in black/dark right now.post #1902 of 151143/10/16 at 5:23ampost #1903 of 151143/10/16 at 5:28am
to answer the question from a few days ago about not raising the ire of my significant other... For me its been a combination of the right timing and bargain hunting. I've generally bought shoes with 'found money.' My first pair were with gift cards, and several others were either gift cards or just picking out my own birthday gift. I also have never spent over $300 on a pair, and that includes 5 first quality, and 3 seconds which were under $200. The firsts were either clearance, RDA sales, or Amazon discounted prices.post #1904 of 151143/10/16 at 6:34ampost #1905 of 151143/10/16 at 7:12am
