    Can anyone comment on sizing for the RL Slaton? I read on here that the Ralph Lauren shoes are on the two last, which I have found to be too narrow in my normal size. Should I size up in length or width?

    The jl or cj version jl from casino royal tough to beat. I would like the ae wholecut better if it were on the 5 last. IDK maybe its me but the elongated toe box throws off the aesthetics for me.

    Not sure this has been posted(not enough time to read through all posts) but Nordstrom's anniversary sale covers some AEs. I just purchased a pair of black Park Avs for $230 which is a fantastic price. Many of their other items are on great sales until August 5th, I also got a $15 set of their Cedar shoe trees which seem to be a fair bit better than the normal Jos A Bank:)() in the sense that they can increase in width. Which leads me to ask how does one add a frown face inside a parenthetical? lol..

    Other favorite choices(IMO) include: Patriot Pennys in brown, Park Aves in Black, Strands in Walnut, & McAllister Black. This is simply my opinion at a quick glance through the sales. PLEASE everyone interested consult the sales!! 33% off is not a laughing matter!
    /endrant

    First AE post: 1st purchase was Bourbon Strands, 2nd was Badenton black tassel kilts(for $1 on Ebay) & today's purchase of black Park Aves puts me at my 3rd AE transaction.

    Hope I helped add to viewer's AE collection.

    All joking aside, along with the sale, Nordstrom is giving free shipping to Canada right now on orders over $150. I do think that is worth mentioning. It's approximately another $30-35 in savings.

    If Amazon has your size on sale then yes. I looked and no size I could fit into is going at that price.

    That's $50-60 towards another pair of shoes!

    Doc - you requested some pics of me wearing my Ashbury's with jeans. Here you go. If it helps at all, I wear an 11E on all AE lasts. As well, I have not worn these boots for more than five minutes so I don't know how much they will crease (I'm waiting until fall to really start wearing them). Also, I included a pick of my snuff suede Amoks simply because they rock:

    Gentlemen, I'm interested in a pair of walnut (tan) RL Sandersons. In my searching online I can't seem to find a retailer that sells them except for RL.com. Is this a discontinued style? I'd like to try them on before ordering. I think they are on the 222 last. Can anyone confirm? If I'm a 7.5E on the 5 last, what size generally do people think I'd be in the 2? From reading this forum I understand that the 2 can be difficult so that's why I'd like to try on some before ordering. RL's site only seems to list D widths.

    Are they worth the extra money? The AE Winter Park in the orthotic line look similar but more casual. What are the main differences? The Players also seem similar albeit a slightly different design.

    I'm interested in a walnut/tan wingtip with open lacing. I think I'm using the correct term. I have a pair of McAllister with closed lacing. Again, not sure if i'm using the right term. The other option is the Larchmont but I don't like the squared toe. The MacNeil only seems to come in grain and I'm looking for something more formal to wear with suits.

    Thanks in advance.
