    I bought the Williams from Amazon for $310. The Hancock is the same price now.

    I think they do look and feel really nice, but I haven't decided to keep them yet.

    If your UPS tracking page is up, look at the box to the right of the green "in transit" box. The box should say "shipped by". The method of shipment indicated in my box is "next day air".

    Agree. The Williams would be the one from the Independence Collection that might tempt me. I'm also not a big fan of the Macneil shape. I have the Macneil in walnut pebble grain, and it's a good shoe with khakis and heavier wools, but it's not quite bulky enough to make a really great casual shoe and certainly not sleek enough to wear with suits. It is comfortable though. If I try the Williams on and find it significantly more comfortable than the Macneil, I could be tempted if it were on sale for around $300.

    I try to like the MacNeil, but I just love the idea of a longwing more than the MacNeil itself. Every time I go into the AE store, I hope I'll look at it and love it, but I just hate it.

    The Williams, on the other hand, is downright gorgeous. If I can pick it up for $300ish, it's coming home with me.

    There are a few AE shoes with proportions I can't like. The MacNeil, the PA, and the 5th Ave. are all included. The Strand on the other hand looks 100% right. I'd love a shell PA with the proportions of the Strand.

    I completely agree. However, due to the Nordstrom sale and factory seconds, I havent really spent more than $200 on shoes, so I'd find it hard to make the jump up to the $300 range. The Williams is now my dream shoe, so here's to hoping it gets included in a ridiculous outlet sale.

    Thanks for the heads up. Just pulled the trigger on a pair of Lombards in Walnut for $212. Brings my AE collection up to 2:)

    Does anyone have any experience or advice on trying a wider width on the Executive last (Lombard, Player)? I'm a measured D, but this last in D is too narrow for me. If I went to a EEE, would that work, or is there something about the shape of the last that would create other issues? i.e.: if a last does not fit, can you just try altering the width?

    Nice choice-attractive shoe, great color



    I agree on the MacNeil. What proportionally is wrong with the PA/5th Ave? Isnt the Strand a similar look?

    I think the toe caps on both are too short. That's the only thing I can think of. I own neither, and haven't held them in my hands at the same time to compare. The 5th Ave is visually worse with the perfing taking up some length.

    Hmm, if thats the case I would think the Strand may be even worse with the other action on the toe, but thats my opinion. What do I know?



    Going from a D to a EEE is a big jump, why not try an E? I've seen people post about going to a wider size.
