I'm starting to feel this way about the PA. I have black PAs as well as 5As and I'm thinking about selling my black PAs. I never reach for them except when I was a groomsman which is probably the only time now I'd wear it over the 5As. Brown antibe PAs might be hitting the bay shortly as well. I have 3-4 pairs that aren't listed in my signature I'm going to be selling too since they either don't fit me great or just don't make it out in rotation. Started out with PAs and now they are on the chopping block.

This is the pair I want to order: http://www.amazon.com/Allen-Edmonds-Mens-Dalton-Lace-Up/dp/B004TDUMJI

 

Does anyone have these and know if they tend to run small or big? Any info on sizing would be great!


I found they run small for me. I'm a 12.5D or 13C in the 5 last. The 13 D was too small for me.

I would be careful with ordering online based on their sizing guide based on the horror stories that I read here on a daily basis.  I think you'd be better off to either find a store with a brannock device nearby or order one online and let us help before you spend a lot in shipping charges.  I have no experience with the sizing guide, but would go with the fit they recommend instead of worrying about what the width of the shoe you order is.

Your asked how many shoes do you have and respond, " I have X pairs."  Then after a short pause you say, "Oh, plus Y more, but I don't really count those."

Sneakers, hiking shoes, bad weather boots???  Those never even enter the equation.  You would have to add a plus Z in my case.

Creative accounting keeps my AE collection around 70 items.  A truly honest count of AE+ Danner hiking/work boots would approach triple digits.  

 

There is no need for honesty except maybe amongst fellow weasels.  

 

Thanks Ace for your math, consider my excess to = Z also.  Definitely under 100 pairs then, just one item Z here on the list, nothing to see, move on.

After a crazy busy week, I'm enjoying some couch time on a dreary Friday. A little more formal attire the last few days, but regrettably I wasn't able to snap any decent pics. Sorry for the super crappy indoor pics...

(Darkening w/ age) Golden Brown CXL Rush Streets (Click to show)
(Obviously chili, but labeled as) Merlot Franciscans (Click to show)

I find my Rush Streets are also darkening with age, and I'm fine with that.  Without any shell experience, I think the CXL is probably my favorite leather.  Love my natural Oak Streets also, and the Kirkwoods, Maritimes, and Bellevues all have nice color.

Hey guys, I am considering picking up my first pair of Walnut shoes. I don't have a store nearby to see the color in person. Is it safe to assume that walnut will work with khaki/navy and possibly gray pants? It's really hard to tell how light the walnut is from the online photos.

Walnut works very well with light to medium gray and any sort of tan/khaki.  It does not work well with dark/charcoal gray.  Walnut and Navy is a personal preference thing, the two colors complement each other, but it is a very flashy look that some don't like (and it violates the 'shoes must be darker than the trousers' iGent rule).
