Thanks for the recommendation! Just picked up a pair for .99.
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 get mine from Ebay. These work very well...
You are welcome! Glad I could help.
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.
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.
I'm still debating on the brown shell webgems.......need to decide soon
Details on the sale that starts tomorrow? Especially interested about what the seconds prices will be. Thanks!
I got a flier at home. Flatiron, kennilworth, Franciscan, dalton, larchmont, and others will be under 2 bills. Will post a scan later today!
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.
