    Would you say the Townley fit true to size?

    I bought my townley as part of 2 for $250 deal so basically I paid $125 for it. AE SA accidentally included 1st quality townley cordovan on list and AE honored my order. Great shoes. I take all of AE shoes TTS.

    The Leeds are weak? You're weak.

    These are the new Leeds. These are the Glengarry Leeds. To you they're gold, and you don't get them. Why? Because to give them to you will be throwing them away. They're for closers.

    Was hoping to get some sizing advise from the experts. I wear an 8D in Strand. I want to get a Leeds. What would be the equivalent size? I've been reading that the 5 last is about 1/2 size longer than the other lasts. So does this mean I should size up? How about the width?

    For me, a 13E in the 5 last = a 14D in the 1 last (since they don't make 13.5).

    I would suggest either an 8 D, 8.5D or 8.5C...I don't know if they still make C widths, though.

    If you're confident the 5 last fits you well and are ordering online my first guess would be an 8.5D. If you're not confident about your 5 last fit, try an 8D, as you might actually be a 7.5E on the 5 last.
