That's what works for me. 8E in Shelton and 7.5EE in 5 last. Some wear the same in all, however.
That sounds about right.
Amoks today. I don't really understand why these were discontinued. I may have to do an MTO for more colors
I keep going back and forth on these. I just wish they were a little less chiseled.
I would try the shoes on first if possible. An 8E is actually the same width as an 8.5D, but is shorter. Shoe widths adjust proportionally with the length of the shoe.
Daltons with salmon pants in the office today. Any tip for getting the scuff out the right toe? I only have black edge dressing.
get the chili edge dressing from AE
In an ideal world I would, but I'm in England, and when it comes to AE stockists, there are few or none.
Can't see myself getting over to the US this year or next, so educated guesswork has to do.
Guesswork got me some AE Quintons in size 8D, which were a bit tight, but with the help of a shoe stretcher, now are a comfortable fit. Then I discovered the AE printable shoe fit guide, and worked out I was really 8.5D in US sizes. Ordered MacNeil and Shelton seconds from Jeffersonville and they fit well.
From all I've read about the 5 last though, it seems that a wider fit would be better.
Maybe it is something that's better left until my next trip to Boston.
Thanks. I'll see if I can pick it up in store at some point. There's a store not too far from work.
Did some work on my shell shoes last night while watching the World Series. Forgot to grab the Color 8 PCT boots for the family shot.

Can you explain what you mean by "work". I wish I could get my AE to look like that.
You can! It requires a lot of brushing, some conditioner, more brushing and buffing. It takes a few sessions but can happen.
I lost a long PM to you last night. Will try and re-type later today
Those Color 8 Chukkas are Alden, no?i only see 2 eyelets
Exactly! Brushing, renovateur and/or VSC. Just my unscientific conclusion but I feel that my AE's take to VSC better and my Alden take to Renovateur better. However, both need brushing and a final buff with a microfiber cloth. Maybe two or three minutes per shoe (at most).
Good eye, I meant to mention that.
