    If the #8 last is the same as my Quintons, than I agree that the 7 last MacNeils fit snugger.

    Actually it was for a custom order so it needs to be correct (as I can't return). I figure that the 13D fit in store so I might as well just go for it...

    If you tried it and it fits, 'nuff said. Don't worry about the numbers...

    So what did you get? Is it just a custom size, or did you do some fancy colors/materials? You should mock it up on the website and post a sample pic!

    Nothing too fancy... Was just going to get them in Walnut (no pebble grain). Unfortunately the online mock-up looks pretty naff but they look awesome in my mind :slayer:

    Walnut will look awesome. I almost bought the pebble grain; but someone had posted pics of the walnut a while back, and they looked tremendous. You had to pay a premium, right?

    And how's the selvedge chambray shirt working out for you? ;)

    Yeah I was tempted by the pebble grain and although the price was right, I just couldn't jive with that pebbled look for some reason. I was thinking about getting them through a certain seller on here who can also get customs made (at a discount). Shirt is awesome thanks :)



    Yeah they look awesome huh.

    Are you getting shell or calf?

    Was thinking of walnut calf. The AE site doesn't suggest you can get shell...

    I thought I saw a picture of the calf, and it looked great.

    You can get shell, the upcharge is higher in addition to the price difference for the shell. Call AE or an AE store. They can add place the order for you, quote a price, and estimate delivery time.

    I am working on my business casual wardrobe and I recently purchased some Fifth Avenues in Dark Brown. I am looking to buy a black shoe now as well. What style do you guys recommend?

    For business casual, the sky is the limit really. Quintessentially, the Park Avenue should be the last black shoe you will ever need. Aside from black tie events that is :)

    I was just wondering if anyone has had the chance to try on the neumoras in person yet and can give me an idea of the fit. I don't have an AE store nearby so I might have to order online, but I am apprehensive about buying without having a good idea for sizing.

    For reference: usually the 5 last in balmorals fit well for me (but not for bluchers, which tend to be too loose on my foot). I also have a pair of macneils, which have good width, but the clipped toe bothers me sometimes (perhaps the toe is too short). Thanks!

    So I placed the order. This is what I went for...

    [​IMG]

    As I say, the mockup on the AE website looks pretty crap. The specs are:

    Wingtip = Walnut Calf
    Vamp = Walnut Calf
    Eyestays = Walnut Calf
    Quarters = Walnut Calf
    Backstay = Walnut Calf
    Stitching = Tone on Tone
    Welt = Natural Standard
    Sole = Leather
    Insole = Leather

    That is one shoe that I wish was offered as standard model. I'm not a fan of the walnut pebble grain but never wanted to take the step for a custom order. Looking forward to seeing yours! If you check around, AcousticFoodie has a pair of walnut macneil's that look absolutely amazing with some wear on them. They are simply stunning!! You made a great choice.

    Incidentally, I ran into a similar sizing solution with the macneil, a half size up in length from my brannock size worked better than increasing the width. I'm an 11D TTS and went to a 11.5D in the Macneil. I've found that the #1 lasted Leeds fits the best of all the AE lasts as I have a slightly tall instep.

    They look terrific, I'm sure I'm person they'll be even better. Great choice with the natural edge trim.
