Congrats! Only parenting advice I have for you is let the hospital nurses help as much as they offer so you and the new mother can get some rest. You'll need it! 😉

Opinions on the poron insole vary, but the combination heel and tap sole are generally regarded as upgrades vs the standard sole and heel on the Cornwallis. 

Thanks for the rec, but I couldn't find any in my size. Ah well, this just forces me to save my money and wait for the RDA sale so I can buy the Graysons I've been wanting.

2. How's the sizing? I'm generally between 11.5 and 12 D on AE shoes and have been buying 11.5 for boots lately (Normandy and Gobi, which I might have been able to squeeze into an 11). I've got the Darmstadt in 11.5 and the fit is pretty OK. Considering that's the same last as the Odenwald, I'm thinking 11.5. But, some of the reviews said the Odenwald ran really large, so I've been wondering about an 11. 

Can't help with brown pics - I have the black Odenwald. But for sizing - I wear 9.5D in all my other AE's and the 9D in the Odenwald fit me best.

Got my new Leeds (new to me) yesterday and decided to do a group shot with my other shells (Polo). Decided to go with some contrast laces on the Leeds, which really brings out the color in them. With the original laces, they almost look black! At $95, i'm really please with these Leeds in shell!

Anyone know how to figure out how old the Polos (left) are? I bought them on ebay a couple years ago all beat up, resoled really sloppy and not listed as shell for about $20 shipped. Spent a good amount of money having Nick at B. Nelson in Manhattan clean them up, new JR double oak soles, etc and love them!

If you wear a lot of suits, either would be good.
My suggestion would be the McAllister, if only because you already have two pairs of the Strand.
