    How does the Leeds fit relative to the 5 last? If I fit 10.5 3e in mctavish, etc, should I stick with that for Leeds or size up?

    I'm still on the fence with the Jefferson and time is running out to decide. I may just stick to calfskin for now and save some money as I also want to pickup the brown shell Strand during the RDA sale. For curiosity sake, what size were you compared to other 5 last shoes?

    On another note, I received a seconds list today and everything Brooks Brothers is listed as closeout whereas before it wasn't. Any specific reason for this? They are still being made?

    ^I ordered the same size as my other 5 lasted shoes. The calfskin Jefferson felt pretty much the same as my spiaggias that Inwore to the store.

    I don't think you will win over any "hard-boiled" AE haters. They are very set in their ways .

    I'm looking to have some recessed toe taps like these (hard plastic or metal):

    put onto a few of my leather-soled AE shoes. Is it too late to put on these guys? I've worn them maybe three times.

    Can anyone recommend a reliable cobbler in the Boston/Cambridge or Providence area that may do this kind of work? I'm in NYC here and there for work so I know I can always use B. Nelson but thought it'd be easier to take to someone local.

    Thanks!

    AdamAdam, a slightly worn sole is perfectly fine for toe taps.

    I wonder why does this thread grow exponentially Monday to Friday and adds a one humble page Saturday to Sunday?

    Boredom at work is to blame, at least in my case.

    Do you guys have a link for proper shoe care? I don't necessarily want to polish the shoes, but I want to make sure I can do something to keep the leather supple, the shoes clean and free of dirt so I don't cause rips, and cover up scratches etc at the toe.

    Thanks!

    I want a dark brown (bourbon?) boot that is as casual as can be - would be great with jeans or chinos for work.

    So far I've been looking at the AE Dalton, Portland, and Fifth Street boots.

    So far I'm really liking the look of the Portland. Any suggestions?

    For your purpose, I'd get the Dalton or Portland

    You might be able to score a Dalton 2nd in your size starting tomorrow. The Rediscover America 2nds sale price is $199. A great deal on a fantastic boot. I have them in bourbon and love them.

    I'd stay away from the Fifth Street as a casual shoe because it is not a blucher. Bluchers tend to be better for jeans or chinos.
