    A buddy of mine came across these for sale on Etsy earlier. Anybody have any details on the model name and year these were made?

    Yes, I got my usual length. No sizing down lengthwise.

    Nordstrom is carrying an new PTB called the Fort Collins. Haven't seen it on AE's site or the Fall catalog. Appears to be on the 333 last.

    Wow. Very European. If they had a thinner 'waist' I'd swear they were.

    I've seen it on the seconds list where it is listed as a Nordstrom shoe. Didn't bother to look up pics before, but I like it a lot actually.

    These look identical to an old pair of saddles I have called "oakmont"... The pair I have have a more walnut tone to the leather on the saddle, but the overall look is the same...

    I have a quite a few pairs of Daltons and if I received these as seconds, I would keep them. If they fit well and are comfortable (have you tried on Daltons before?), they will develop creases as they wear and as you say, most of the quarters will be covered.

    No, first Allen Edmonds ever. I think I will keep them.

    Yes, Nordstroms CS is one of the best. There was one time I bought shoes, had oversoles installed and wore at least 3 times. Eventually I couldn't wear anymore because they hurt my feet. My wife said, return them. I was flabbergasted by the idea. But she volunteered to be the one to bring it to the store and return. Sure enough, it was accepted without any issues. That's why I never throw away my Nordstrom's receipt!

    I think you will not regret this decision. You will come across another Dalton deal. Just be patient.

    Hello, what do people think of the AE spiaggia in navy suede? What will they work with? Just jeans? I only wear jeans and wool trousers so chinos are out of the question.

    I used to buy 11.5D in PA's, Strands, and McAllisters. After visiting an AE store I'm told I've been sized incorrectly by Nordstom (they only carry D widths in my local Nordstrom), and that I probably need a 10EE. Instead of placing a special order for that, I compromised on an 11D which is noticeably narrower, and still a bit too long for me. 10E was too tight for me, 10.5E was more comfortable but I couldn't close the lacing enough to satisfy me, 10EEE was too wide for me. My Patriots are 10EEE, as are my Centerfielders.

    Burgundy shell Macneil and Dalton. The Daltons just arrived. It only took them 2 days to get here. Those guys are great over there.

    Thanks. Yes, same size in both. The Daltons are possibly a bit more loose, but I have not really taken them out yet or tried them on for an extended period.
