    E MacNeil in Dublin Tan leather--a make up for Freeman's Sporting Club--for a casual outing tonight. I really dig this version of the MacNeil.

    Does the 5-last lose some of its sleekness when you go from a 9.5D to a 9E?

    My understanding is that both shoes will have the same width.

    I'd guess so, given that loses a bit of length and essentially becomes a bit rounder.

    Will anyone notice? Probably not.

    Look great. If I'm not mistaken, those are first cousins - if not identical - to the "Gramercy," one of the three special makeups AE did for Urban ... whatever their last name is, in late summer/fall of 2012. It was a LWB on the 7 last, just like all MacNeils, and made up in Dublin leather like your Freeman's are.

    I tried to grab a pair last week but was a little too late for the last one in my size. I wish they still made it. They have McTavish clones in Dublin but they are on the 5 last, IIRC.

    I can take this, since I just got the Strand in 9.5E. I don't think there's any noticeable loss in sleekness, but even if there is, it is surely offset by an increase in comfort.

    My 2 for $250 selection: brown shaker heights and brown distressed pine rivers. Both shoes were never on my radar at MSRP but with the sale, I thought they would be good buys. My wife loves the shakers, thinks I should get more mixed media shoes. The pine river on the other hand isn't her favorite, the buckles are killing her.

    My opinion on the shakers are that they are great, very soft leather and awesome design. The pine rivers are a stretch out of my comfort zone but I feel they will work great casually.

    The 5-last isn't sleek at any width.

    I hope you bought them, I was looking at them and had I know they would have only gone for $75 I'd have grabbed them for sure.


    I don't believe it, two 15D'ers posting within an hour of each other, I thought I was the only one and had a lock on the sweet 15D sale shoes. Bespoke; you scooped me on those Daltons, they're Chili right? I'd emailed the shoebank about them and called a day later when I didn't get a response but they were already gone. I'm still happy with my Brown CXL Bayfields I scooped last year.

    I have Alden's natty CXL and the Natural Waxed McTavish.
    2 different types of leather completely. The color is definitely more grey toned on the Natural CXL.
    The Natural CXL is much softer.

    Can I join the party? I has a closet full of AE 15D. Although as the years have gone by I have grown into a 15E sometimes depending on the last.

    Yes, actually they do. Quite a bit. Wonder if there was some inspiration sourced from the JCrews.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the folks from the F.S.C. drew an inspiration from J.Crew, and honestly J.Crew's version is so cool that I don't blame them. AE made those for F.S.C. in 2011 or 2012 and J.Crew had been stocking Alden for at least a few years before then.

    Got my 2-for-$250s in...

    Haight in brown and Katmai's.

    Gotta send the Katmai's back.. too narrow in the toebox. Hopefully a 10.5D->11D will be a little better. They didn't have any 10.5E :/

    I returned my brogue strands and decided to keep the navy strands. They felt fine for the 3 or so hours I was wearing them in the afternoon.

    The ae reps at the store I was in were super nice! They forgot to credit me tax back and gave me a pair of socks to make it up.

    I was about to say I don't believe it, but it stands to reason that if you're tired of wasting money on cemented shoes you'd find AE and if you wanted further info that you'd find this thread like I did. I should start a.new thread for us tall/big footed people.
