    Larchmont or Macneil? Which one to get? Which is the more sleeker shoe? I'm guessing Larchmount because the toe isnt as round?

    The MacNeil is a more traditional LWB shape, whereas the Larchmount is a sleeker design. It all comes down to your personal preferences.

    Mcadams... not Macadams... sorry, don't mean to be rude, but you aren't the first in the last couple of days to do that.

    This is new. What if the shoes don't fit or have a noticeable defect? You could always return for that reason.

    That's the risk you take when you're getting them for $99.

    Anyone knows how to size the 333 last compared to the 5 last ?

    I'm wondering mainly if theres a difference in regards to the width of the shoe.

    I know it has been asked and, apparently, been answered. But I can't seem to find the answer in the recent pages of the thread.

    What kind of Black Friday sale are the AE outlets having? Is it the $99 on closeouts? Is it anything else?

    I typically need to size down .5 with the 333 last. And there's a bit more room in the forefoot as compared to the 5 last.

    Out of curiosity, what kind of use do you get out of the Brady? They're an intriguing shoe, but I can't really picture how/when I would ever wear them.

    I have had them for about a month and have been using them with blue or grey slacks. I'm a sock person, likes odd colors, and have realized that with these shoes I need to stay within the blue family when wearing them.

    I have yet to wear them with jeans, but I can totally see that working.


    I would just stay aware form black, olive, and brown pants with these.

    Not gonna fly.

    May not be worth it to order 2nds anymore. I think they want you to pay $10 for return shipping. Now this.

    Kidding. That policy applies to the $99 specials only, and I hardly think that's an unfair policy when you're getting them for $99 with free shipping.

    Chili Randolphs were on my list too. Thought about them but have no clue how to size them, can't get to an AE store to figure it out.

    I've been practicing my spit shine with AE Neutral Wax Polish on the toes. This was roughly 10 mins on each.

    Not the greatest picture but I'm getting better. A Member named Crat has a vid in his signature on here. Edit, here ya go: http://chriscrat.tumblr.com/post/42997583917/spit-polishing-a-shoe
