    Yeah, for those that are comparing toe cap sizes, toe cap and brogueing position (anterior-posterior) depends on shoe size.

    Bayfields arrived today, fit is spot on. They are a little lighter in colour than I was expecting, but I can change that easily enough should I decide to.

    Nice! :slayer:

    Did you buy them from AE?

    Does anyone know why AE stopped making the Bayfield?

    You can't even count those as being defects... Those are negligible, enjoy them!

    those "defects" wouldn't bother me at all. Wear and enjoy!

    No, I got them from Lands End. They were on sale a few days back and couldn't resist.

    Was it a normal sale or a coupon?

    I just checked and they are 350. :(

    They were on sale, not a coupon. They were $245.

    Nooooo! :(

    Are they going to have them on sale again?

    Do you know if I can still get AE to make me a pair in C width?

    I need two pairs, one for a friend and one for me.

    Hi,
    I have wide feet and I am a true US8EEE. I have AE Fifth Street boot in US 8.5D. Which fits good. Just feel a bit long. But US 8 would’ve been too tight around toe area. I have received my pair of AE Strand in US 8EEE. But this shoes are way too wide and I have too much space around my toe area. Also I feel this pair is slightly log as well. I think I could’ve done better with US 7.5 EEE. My understanding was both pairs on the same last. Am I missing some thing here ?

    I have no idea what the frequency of Lands End sales are. I have no idea whether you can get AE to make you a pair in any size, and I'm almost positive you can't get them in a C width.

    A few months ago I had a shoe on the 5-last made in a C width for a slight upcharge (which turned out not to fit well DOH!). If they have the last available I think they will make them to order.

    You're right, I meant B width. Does anyone have the show bank contact info?

    Those look great. AE really needs to bring those back or at least something close.

    I've got a pair of Sanfords here I just purchased brand new and found a defect in the right shoe. The rest of the shoe is breathtaking (perfect leather, really nice stitching). This panel though on the shoe the stitching is lopsided, they go over the edge and almost just try to finish off the pattern even though no longer in symmetry. The leather holes are not punched right through so they are just left there. You can see where the shoe laces attach is really crinkly leather. It's almost like a thinner piece of leather compared to the rest of the shoe. Somehow this was missed on their quality control. The rest of the shoe is brand new. This panel almost seems old. The shoes were fresh and unlaced out of the box (I did a quick lace up to try them on so I don't believe they were used. The leather soles were untouched.
