Very apparent there!

So tell me what size are you in shell Jefferson versus shell LWB?

Also I find that I need to go down a width in AE shell versus AE calf. Do you find that to be the case with Alden as well?

That wasn't so much directed at you, but I appreciate it. You take super high quality photos and put tons of time into them. It just drives me a bit crazy when you post a bunch of killer shots but then like 10 people quote them and say awesome or great shoes. No reason for that to take up like 3 pages of posts. Ok, I will get off my soapbox now...

LoL. I figured you didn't mean me, but I did it for fun anyways. :-)

I should have figured that was the case. I was just curious as to whether this was a peculiarity limited to AE or just a common consideration when sizing for shell in general.

Shell does not stretch the way that calf-skin does. So it does not fit as snugly on lasts. Thus calf tends to fit slightly tighter than shell does. I have never really had to adjust sizes for shell, but if I was on the cusp between two sizes, then that would come into play.

BTW, for the record, I have the Alden Cape Cod Horse-Bit loafer in Black Calf, so I technically do have an Alden calf shoe, but it's on a different last than any of my other shoes, I think it's called the classic last. So I can't compare fit.
