    Do you wear the same size in shell and calf? It looks like the calf version is slightly slimmer than the shell version.

    Once again you and I have very similar tastes. I am trying to decide on a cappacino Leeds or Williams. I am probably in the minority here, but I prefer the Williams to the MacNeil

    Is it a good idea to lace your shoes up tightly for storage with shoe trees? Or is this just done for appearance in the photo?

    I like the williams allot and that would be great in shell. I thought about it myself but having three shell LWB I decided not. I think I am doing the Leeds

    With a lighter edge trim to make it just a bit more casual?

    I finalized my order today for walnut shell Leeds in 10C. Dainite sole with midsole added; brown split reverse welt with light brown welt stitching. I will wear the shoe casually and wanted a rubber outsole for wear in inclement weather, as needed.

    I'm curious as to why AE seems to have so much shell available but Alden seems to have 0. Perhaps forward thinking by Mr.G and company to stock up?

    Most of the Lord and Taylor is sold out, but I found a 12D walnut kenilworth available as of a few minutes ago. With the discount code, it should rack up at $180ish.

    I wear a 9D, so I'm just passing this along to the 12 D or 12.5D people out there. Remember the common wisdom is to size down 1/2 size for the kenilworth from your regular 5 last size. So these might work better for 12.5D people.

    Regards!

    First time, long time :)

    It was an unseasonably dreary day today in San Francisco, so I wanted to brighten it up a bit with some walnut Flatirons.

    Lord and Taylor is actually a great place to snag AE firsts on sale since they're always running some sort of promotion. I also know if you can get to the NYC store they will order you any shoe AE makes at the sale price (not sure if other stores can do this).

    Hey I'm thinking of picking up Long Branch in grey as seconds. Bought my first pair of AE's, chose bourbon Strands. Brannick sized me at 10D and Strands also came in at 10D. Any idea of how the Long Branch will fit? True to size?
