    Hey guys,

    Looking to sell my Brown Hamptons, size 11.5D. If anyone is interested let me know, asking price is $80.

    They have only been worn a handful of times and have of course been taken care of like they were gold!

    Send me a PM and I will give some pics.

    -Scott

    I'd definitely do the salmon after, like you said...don't want my feet smelling like fish.

    I'm mulling over either a Shaker Heights or Haight, but a little nervous about the fit of either.

    Also, I bought 3 pairs during last month's sale, so perhaps I should slow down...

    A pair of dress shoes are usually designed so your toes don't sit where the shoe ends, you should check if the ball of your feet is at the widest part of the shoe.

    Just ordered a pair of black Kenilworths after an local AE trunk show! (No local AE store...)

    A couple of interesting points of info from the AE rep:

    1: they are changing the numbering/last system - i.e. the model number will not necessarily reflect the last number. They are not getting rid of lasts or anything, just "running out of numbers."

    2) the Kenilworths cost less than other 360 goodyear welt shoes because they are easier to make (fewer pieces of leather, less stitching) not because they are less all made. (Not sure show true that is, but that's what he said.) When I discussed the wholecuts, he explained that those are actually harder to make (stretching on the lasts, need large price sod leather), which makes sense.

    3) although sizing can vary from last to last, he said that sizing in fairly standard sizes/widths (e.g. 10d) will be pretty consistent across multiple lasts. I think that is consistent with my experience.

    Sounds like good advice. Thanks for the input (wurger, random-adam, and others).

    Do I Have Too Many Shoes? (Cross Post)

    Good Evening All,

    I wished to pose a question to the forum to see what everyone has to say. I also thought that it would be fun to post my shoe family one at a time. I will save you the task of counting, I currently have 21 pairs of shoes (16 in Shell Cordovan, 4 in Calfskin, and 1 in Suede) with four more on the way (3 in the mail, 1 on order). So, how many shoes is too many?

    Here is my entire collection, the shoes that are still on their way or listed below. Thanks in advanced!

    I personally don't think you have too many as long as the ones you have get worn. Shoes are suppose to worn and not stored in a closet.

    On a side note I ordered a pair of cappuccino shell Jeffersons that shipped out yesterday. Yours look great and I can't wait to get mine. Also, where did you find Ravello shoes at?
