    I might try that, i'll see what Jville says when I give them a call.
    Good to know, maybe this will be the case for me. If so, just another case of great customer service from AE.


    Also, does anyone here find that the shell version of a shoe fits bigger than the calf version? the dalton in 12D in calf for me was snug at first, and has now stretched to be the perfect fit. But the shell dalton in 12E was way way way bigger. Even with wool socks, it wasn't snug. Seems like it shouldnt has increased in girth so much with only one size up in width.

    What's the policy on sizing for Elgins? Are you guys sticking with the same size as your strands and other 5 last shoes?

    I'm a 10D in the Strand and McAllister and others and my Elgin in a 9.5D fits me the same.

    Would 0.5 size up from 5 and 1 last be too big in MacNeil?

    I think the LW needs a split reverse.

    Yeah, from looking around I think it does need the split reverse. Now I just need to decide between a double butyl sole and a single butyl.....I think the single will make it look less bulky, but we'll see.

    I wear size 9D for most 5-lasted shoes and my Elgins in 8.5D fits the same. I did try size 9D at the store when I bought my Elgins and I think those would have worked as well if I wore thicker socks or tied the laces tighter. But 8.5D definitely was the better fit.

    Well, SF is dangerous like that, LOL! But at least in this case you're not out a ton of money and I think you'll be happy with it as long as it fits well.

    Would be for me. I am the same size in 1, 5, and 7.

    I feel like all of my shell shoes feel looser than their calf counterparts.

    That's assuming that everyone that wants to do an MTO is looking at shell.

    They look nice and awfully tempting to me now.

    Just for fun, can you get 3 for $375? Or do they need to be purchased in even quantities?

    HAMPTONS BLACK CALF/BLACK GRAIN LEATHER WINGTIPS: On the AE site these are in their clearance section and in the checkout the are totalling $147.75 after (apparently) additional discounts. Is that an unusually good deal or do deals like that happen regularly on AE's?

    I think that's a pretty good deal. I paid much closer to retail, and still am happy with mine.

    From personal experience, you can buy 1 for $125, 2 for $250, or 3 for $375, etc.
