    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!

    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!
