    Yup. My Fifth Aves today are a good example of a factor affecting fit. My PAs are the same except for the toe cap and color, and yet...these hit my left ankle and have a bit more volume. As it finishes breaking in everything will be ok, but I probably should have given another pair a chance.

    I also picked up a pair of these (in no small part due to the weaselling of @instigateur). When they arrived I noticed they fit a bit long but also pretty tight across the instep for a 201. Figuring they have a bit more 'give' than calf I wasn't too concerned. Then I noticed I have a pair of Aberdeens that are more maroon than brown. A little too much overlap having these and the Aberdeens and Overlords in my collection.

    Thought I'd chime in though as there will soon be an excellent pair of 11D brown Neumok 2.0s available if someone is on the hunt for one (mine are in route as a return). Also, if anyone is interested, as of a month ago the Aberdeen didn't show as available in first quality but my SA was able to get me one (mine are labelled Allen Edmonds on the insole and Brooks Bros on the outsole).

    Definitely use the downloadable guide to measuring your feet.

    This sounds crazy, but you might get some useful feedback if you post the measured size here along with a pic or two of your feet in thin socks. Things like arch, instep, etc. are an important part of fit, and they're hard to describe.

    I noticed the length as well but really not enough to make any difference for me.

    It's wet as wet can be so the Strands get the call again today. They're the BB version (poron removed) so the tap sole is ideal. Natural history museum today.

    Happy Monday forum pals. Blue shell on this sunny day. They go well with the olive pants, blue socks and the blue AE leather belt. BTW, AE still has a few of the black Fedora hats in medium only. They are a tremendous hat, IMO, for the clearance price of $39.

    Each pair rubs the bottom of my outside ankle bone for the first few wears. On my Strands I had to shove some folded up card stock between the shoe tree and leather to speed up the process. It was the worst offender by far. A heel pad didn't feel right, so I just dealt with it.
