How does the MacNeil fit compared to Alden Barrie last? I am a 9.5D in Alden LWB.
Sorry. Quoted for awesomeness.
I take a 8.5D in the Barrie last and 9D in the MacNeil. I think the MacNeil is a smidge more roomy overall but has a more tapered toe box.
I just got off the phone with Rick. He just sold me the last 12 D. Thanks so much for letting me know!!
IMPORTANT: He only has D width.
Enjoy your townleys! They are great shoes!
I like that contrast! Personally I like the look. It is just plain wrong to read that it "It cooled down enough" though LOL.
I'm looking forward to finally being able to drain the gas out of the snowblower. Black calf Bayfields and matching dark outfit mourning yet another snow fall. Letting mother nature handle the contrast today:
I think the shell PA have been out for close to a year now.
As to issues, some do not care for the short cap on the PA. I like it myself however. And the AE shell usually comes with a fair amount of cream on them. You can clean them up and get a pretty decent shine out of them with a little work. I have shell from AE, Alden, and C&J and feel in the end they are pretty much equal in all aspects. Carmina from the pictures I have seen usually has a very high shine. I wouldn't trade my black shell PA for them however:
SCORE! Thank you jvc44!
They had one more pair of 10D in stock when I called right before they opened. Rick said the phone was ringing off the hook already. sungmineyo thanks for posting pictures of yours, they look very much like Dark Cognac, ie: Horween #449. And they look very much like a shoe version of the Bayfield. If they would have been the Bayfield in #449 shell I would have walked to Ohio to get them!
You know, I've never been to Philly...
I've never been to Baton Rouge either... I do have a guest room...
You are welcome sir, enjoy!
Cold Iron, one of my next purchases will be the brown CXL Bayfields from Lands' End. I sure wish they still made them in black as well.
If you need a break from the snow, the Baton Rouge Blues Festival is tomorrow and the forecast calls for blue skies and mid 70's
As do I. As mentioned above...Baton Rouge Blues Festival tomorrow. First beer is on me!
Thanks for the insight. I'll see if I can order an 8.5C. The fit of 8D in last 5 for me is quite good. My left foot is a bit longer than my right and I do feel that pinky toe ever so slightly hit the cap. But the right fits perfect. I also don't feel any pressure against the ball of either foot so I think the D width is good.
I just got an email from Rick at the AE shop in Cleveland. He asked me to post what he has left of the Cordovan Townley.
Thanks again for the call. All set to ship they are going out now. If you get a second would you post what I have left?

Sorry to be a pain...I can get Carmina's in Korea without a markup but not so AE. A friends mother is flying in from the States and can bring the shoes with her, so I'm getting ready to pull the trigger here.
