    Fiddle, I have the Strand in both Walnut and Dk Brown and latter is also stunning. PA or FA in brown also a good choice, or what about one of the current Chili Webgems from the AE site? I also own the Clifton in Dk Brown but I think it's discontinued now; I got mine as seconds for $129. A wealth of great brown choices for you Fiddle...truly First World Problems LOL! J

    Grr - So they don't have a 7.5E in the Walnut 5th Ave.

    Any ideas what size would fit as well as my 7.5 EEE Hale?

    First World Problems indeed! I'm really on the fence on how I feel about the Chili Webgems, I'll have to seek out some actual pictures of them. This is probably a dumb question, but are Webgems in stores?

    I don't think the webgems are in stores. But trust me, the chili color is gorgeous. Here's my Daltons:

    I would keep them. It looks like a pretty small flaw and is in an area that's least noticeable. I would let the folks at AE know about it and keep an eye on how this spot wears over time. My guess is it will be fine, but if not and this just gets worse then maybe you could exchange. These are incredible looking shoes, but you need to make sure you will be happy with them and not always looking at and thinking about this section.

    I finalized a custom order on Friday, and Allison at AE mentioned there were several MTO's that had just finished and were ready to ship. She didn't want to give away the details to keep it as a surprise, so I have no idea what was made, but she did say she was really excited how they turned out. Apparently some of you have some creative, one-of-a-kind makeups coming. I look forward to the pictures!

    I am looking forward to my custom order to come also. I finalized 2 weeks ago. I am doing a MacNeil in tan suede with a single oiled sole and a medium brown edge trim.

    I happen to like Strand in bourbon. If you like something with less detail perhaps the Kenilworth. If I remember correctly the Clifton (Nordstrom) comes in dk brown. I think the Flatiron is a nice shoe in brown with just a little detail. If you want to spend some more money the Rutledge in walnut is gorgeous IMO. The other thing to consider is something in merlot. I love my merlot McAllister. It's a very versatile color.

    The AE stores will have samples of the webgems only. Webgems are MTO.

    originally I ordered cappuccino daltons but allison advised me the walnut was in much shorter supply. I will post pics asap, I had to delay shipping due to an upcoming trip to ny. I didn't want them hanging out in the doorstep. I also ordered a walnut belt as finding a matching belt elsewhere would have been tough especially with all the variations in shell. I am hopeful the belt and boots will come from the same run of shell.

    Has anyone seen or heard of any sales in Olive neumoks? None available in my size in seconds.

    Thanks in advance.

    Very cool! One of my pairs is about to ship so hopefully they are one of the ones she is excited about.

    Thanks for satisfying my curiosity. Walnut shell was my first pair of Daltons and they're about a year old. The patina is aging nicely and these are one of my favorite boots. Mine are unlined. I bet that you'll be really happy with them. Enjoy!

    Brooks Brothers Shoes by AE

    I've just read a post over at AAAC where a former Brooks Brothers salesman seems to say that the Brooks Brothers shoes are made with lower quality leather than their regular Allen Edmonds counterparts, and that they don't take a shine as well.
    Can this be true?

    I thought it was only the soles and the Poron insole that were different.

    I highly doubt this. First off, AE only makes slight changes with their BB shoes. For example the Poron insole and with respect to my Park Ave BB's a rubber forefoot. It would probably cost AE more $$ & more time to make them with two different kinds of leather.

    Plus, let's face it AE wants to be carried by BB because it gets their name out there to some people who haven't heard of them (who hasn't heard of AE? PLENTY of people - believe me!). I doubt they'd want to make a crappy impression that way.

    does anyone have any input on the fit of dalton boots compared to the park avenues? I wear 10.5 D park aves and they're great.

    Hi,

    Just have a quick fit question for you AE gurus. I have a pair of AE strands and AE provos, both in a 13D, and they fit fine, but not great. I am wondering what size I should look to try for a better fit. I want to order some new shoes (strands, fifth or park ave) in the tent sale.
    The current problem is that the 13D doesn't fit snug like I feel it should. The width is alright, but its a little longer than I think I need. My actual foot is 11 7/8" long, 4 1/4" wide at the balls of my feet, and 4" wide at the mid foot. Should I be looking at a 12D or 12E? I don't really have much access to trying many shoes on.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
