    He left his Gmail address below, though if you're going to have him search for shoes for you, he suggests contacting charleston@allenedmonds.com and putting "For Jeff: " in the subject line.

    And I also appreciate it. My bank account not so much...


    1) SWAG says yes. If not Nick at B. Nelson will. And at $130 investment cost not worried about it.

    2) I don't think so from looking at the profile on the website. If they don't work out then nothing lost except for time and $130 for a few days. But yes it would be nice to know and will in a few days.

    If anyone got the Saunders in 10D and find it doesn't quite fit that well, send me a pm. I'll take them off your hands.

    It looks a lot like the Dundee, which would have been on the 1-last. So, there's a possibility it's not.

    I know they are very different styles, but thoughts on Merlot Cliftons vs. Merlot McCalisters?

    I just emailed Kristen at the Charleston Outlet. She says that the Saunders is on the 1 last and is identical in design to the Malvern. Would someone who has the Malvern (or a similar 1-Last shoe) be so kind as to comment on the fit of this model? I wear an 8E in the 5 last and an 8.5D in the 8 last. There is only a brown 8E Saunders and a black 8.5D still available. I want that brown one. Would it work?

    Ahhh. Damn this sale. I just bought a Whiskey cordovan PTB and a Ravello cordovan chukka from Shoemart's 2nd's list for $399 each last night. Today I had to pick up the RL Saunders and a Brooks brown PA.

    My wallet and I may be going through a messy divorce soon.

    Most of my AE shoes are on the 1 or 5 last for me they fit identical but not for everyone. The 8 last doesn't fit me for some reason. The Malvern is a flyer because they used memory foam in it which made it smaller and tighter. I would pick the phone up and call her ASAP and order those 8E now before someone else gets it.

    Outstanding job on the Whiskey and Ravello pickups and great choices! Not an easy task to find either anymore. But those 2 in a chukka are on my short list.

    My Malvern was a little smaller than my 5 last shoes, not significant though. I think if the 8E 5 last is perfect for you, should be good.

    I'm 11.5D on the 5 and had to size up to 12D for the Malvern.

    Yes they are the Dundee in calf. FedEx just dropped off my Truffle shell Dundee's a few minutes ago so now I have to update my Dundee collection picture with the Truffle and Dark Brown. Walnut, black and #8:

    [​IMG]

    On the RL website the Saunders looks like it is only a 2 eye chukka. The truffle just came out of the box with the middle eyes not laced and it looks identical to the Saunders. So hopefully soon I will be able post an updated picture with the dark brown shell, truffle shell, and brown calf.

    Why doesn't AE have a website for their shoebank? Would be very convenient if you could check to see their available shoes and sales without having to wait for an email or call and have someone give you the rundown.

    shhh! its our little secret! I'm assuming it would be bad for their regular retail business... I've found the shoebank to be really responsive, and I don't mind the little legwork for the extra savings
