    Contrary to the post above, my experience is what you stated. My McAllister puts pressure on my toes by mid day, while my Strands in the same size are too big. I had the McAllister first, then got the strand based on that size, but should have gone down a half size.

    wearing my first pair of seconds on their "maiden voyage" AE Flatirons - ~$149 iirc Very happy with this shoe/last. Good info on here a bunch of pages back about all the welts. Thanks!! Does this forum have "stickies" or permanent threads for common questions/answers or not really?

    All calf or with another fabric? Buff colored oiled canvas with a lug sole would get my attention (and perhaps that of Filson or Orvis as an exclusive).


    Great look--wish I could pull it off.

    Not only did she not mark it up any, but since I had originally inquired last week, Allison honoured the RDA price of $293 or thereabouts. I still have to pay to ship it to Canada, but figure this would pretty much wash with the discount.

    What's your size? The medallion looks so much bigger on yours than it does on my clodhoppers!

    Just realized that since Sanford has been discontinued, AE doesn't make any cap-toe blucher [​IMG]

    Yep, but it's an Independence collection which is already in Alden's price category.

    Yep, this is what I thought as well. Should only be ~300.

    No love for Clifton?

    Btw 6pm was selling Sanford's for under 200$ for a while. Maybe a few still left...
