    Happy Walnut Wednesday, gents!

    There was a recent discussion about the fit of these. Both of my First Aves are the same size as my 5-last shoes. 9D in these boots fit great; 9D in 65 is a little snug. With the 201, too much volume is my issue - but these seem to be doing alright (about 4-5 wears in on these walnuts, about 10 on the brown grain version).

    This pair seems like a schizophrenic design. Black patent leather wingtip with red contrast stitching and a mini lug sole. The Ridgeway. Yea or Nay? Discuss among yourselves.

    Gotta disagree here.

    Walnut shell looks like bourbon calf.

    Natural shell looks like walnut calf.

    I'm not a big fan of either bourbon calf or, by extension, walnut shell.

    Just picked up a good looking pair of Brown 5th Avenues on eBay for $55. Overall in good shape, but i'm going to send them back to be re-crafted (never done that before). Should get a great pair of shoes for 1/2 price.

    What are people's thoughts on the Eagle Country (Tan)? Like or dislike? I see a pair in my size on the bank everyday. $177 seems like a pretty good deal for boots although I seem to remember hearing about the sole coming off.

    You're free to disagree. Really a preferential thing. I prefer darker colored leather in general and don't really like walnut calf like the rest of the group.

    Here is what's left of my AE Shell Collection. I will be parting ways with them unfortunately as these lasts do not work well with my feet. It's a sad reality that I have come to accept.

    They sent me an email when the shoes were shipped. Don't despair my friend, your day will come.

    Thank you, I think it went well. Now just have to wait and see. I do not see a lot of PAs on this thread. They're not as interesting as some of AEs offerings, but I do enjoy them.

    Hello Ranch! Sorry for the extremely late reply!

    I too, have the RL Marlow in brown shell, and also a black cap-toe Alden in black shell. I don't wear the RL's with suits because the double sole and the reverse welt just makes them look too clunky to me. That's the reason for the shell strand- I do wear them with suits, but only for daytime. I trust you'll spend your coupon wisely.

    I'm a big fan of them and never had a problem with the sole. I'm probably in the minority (at least on SF) in that I wasn't a fan of the regular leather sole makeups of the EC last year, but I very much like the look of it with the white vibram sole.

    I realize this is the AE thread and these are not AE, but whatever.

    I've been on a loafer kick recently. Got a pair of OSB natural CXL beefrolls for the warmer weather recently, and then realized I need to fill the void of a darker brown loafer after I sold my brown RL Singletons (didn't seem to fit correctly).

    Enter ebay. Yesterday these pop up, Rancourt shell loafers. Made an offer on a whim to the seller, and as of an hour or so ago I am now the owner of these, apparently. Can't wait to see them in person!

    (What have I done?)

    Congrats, I am a weak man and have the 8.5D on the way haha.

    I already have both the brown and natural CXL OSB loafers so I guess I am now going to be selling the brown pair.
