They look a lot darker this time. Is that just the lighting?
It is actually the most realistic of how they look in real life.

Happy Saturday forum pals. A nice day to break out my Chesters.

It must be time to spend your Shell money on a custom dog house.

Fortunately these were so discounted that they don't dig too deep into the Shell budget. The trick now is to receive the parcel when the Mrs. is not home and dispose of evidence quickly. Lucky for me, she thinks all my watches and shoes look the same, she can't tell them apart.

I strive to wear these more. But the Cody is such a girly shoe, that I need to build up my testosterone banks just to put them on.

The Chester. This is the EXACT shade I have been looking for since 2015 and I only find them in black. I did go with the black, but it was alligator. This is an amazing shoe. I think AE would sell a TON of these should they ever make another appearance.

Does anyone know what last the Chester is on?

Doc, what color is this?? It's really nice.

I found out recently that there was a shoe called the Fairhaven, which is on the 73 last. Always happy to discover AE models I did not previously know about.

My friend, are you sure it is the 73 last? According to this older post from our forum, it is the 234 (4) last.


234 (4) Last: Allen Edmonds' 234 is modeled after the 97 last for the best fit for the average foot, but with a less pronounced point and a subtly squared-off toe. Along with the 678, it’s considered one of the widest and roomiest lasts Allen Edmonds makes. Some people believe it runs a little long.
Models: Addison

You're right. It's definitely not the 73 (don't know why I thought it was that last).

There are two numbers inside that show the style number and the time code. The code on the left I think is the style code, which reads 7874, which would be the 234. The code on the right reads 1437, which would mean the 97. I'm pretty certain the 1437 is the date code and not the style code.

For anyone looking for new, in-box, vintage AEs, I would recommend seller abenne37 on Poshmark.

He has dozens of old stock in very clever models, in a variety of sizes:
