    I've had to call back to Jeffersonville about asking for a tracking number. I think they just don't normally send a confirmation or tracking unless you call and request it. The shoebank however sent me a confirmation right when I got off the phone. i think it depends where you ordered from and who took the order.

    Just wanted to drop an update, they're up to $34 (I started at 99 cents, let the market decide their worth) and the auction ends tomorrow. They may end up being a steal.

    Gorgeous shoes. Why would you be parting with them though?? I've got a 'watch' going on them...

    I have found the 2 last to be nothing short of miserable. I have tried on the shoe in question and didn't care for it.

    I wear a 12EEE in Strand and Park Ave in the 5 last and just bought the 12EEE Rutledge which I tried on yesterday. The Rutledge seems to have a slightly higher instep and slightly narrower toe box. The Rutledge fits me absolutely perfectly and are super comfortable, best fit other than the Neumok for my feet.

    The Stratford, the Sanderson, the Singleton, the Saunders, the Slaton, and the Gatsby are all made by AE.

    I know the Sanderson in Tan Calf is popular, but I favor the Tan Calf and Khaki.

    In the 3 last I size down and go up a width. I usually wear 9.5d. But in the three last I wear a 9e

    The shell Bradley seconds I picked up a few months ago continue to come to life after a lot of brushing and conditioning...

    Yes as CH mentioned. Here is my version of AE for RL tan and khaki (Illford) along with tan Saunders, brown Sandersons. :smarmy:

    Checking the closet I see I have to start enforcing the one in one out policy. Also if AE ever makes the Dalton in suede I'm sunk...

    What happens if you drop it off at a retail store?

    Gorgeous. Your post coincided with me coming to terms that I have short/ wide feet with a high instep and probably am not a good fit for the 5 and 3 lasts. I might just have to try out the 1 lasted Leeds and Bradleys soon!

    They are gorgeous and I'm a bit sick to part with them. However I need to thin the herd - I've got more shoes than I need and some expenses coming up that I have to deal with. I work in academia so these shoes don't get enough sunlight (I have a pair of brown and burgundy wingtips, non AE, that pair better with most of what I wear to the office, and some black cap toes, Clifton, for more formal occasions, and that's not mentioning my spectators, Strawfut, and boot collection, some of which I'm selling off as well). Good luck BCer!

    There were to many excellent replies for me to multi-quote them all so I'll just say it to all of you. I appreciate all of your input on my questions about shell cordovan. After reading what you have to say, as well as the links you posted, I have learned a great deal about shell, and why people like it. While it does have unique characteristics about it, I have concluded (perhaps unjustly) that much of the appeal of shell cordovan comes from it's exclusivity, after all that's part of the joy of owning a great pair of shoes anyways isn't it? Not saying there is anything wrong with that, but at this point in my life (I'm 24 and still a student) I feel I just can't justify the purchase of a shell cordovan shoe, but there is a small chance I will indulge in the distant future.

    Regardless I am still amazed at and grateful for the lengths you gents go to in order to lend a helping hand to some random guy on the internet. THANKS!
