    haha, I started a thread asking that same question! I would love to know more. The last looks Barrie to me and they're welted in Mass. But the uppers are from Italy, etc, etc.

    They are GY welted and at $300 is basically AE prices.

    I posted the few articles I could find on the other thread.

    Either way, both of those would work for the OP, as I don't believe either are on the 5 last...

    Yeah, I agree. I really am not sure which last they use for their Jos A Bank shoes. I used to know. :-(

    Do any of you know if it's possible to utilize the recrafting service to increase the width from the original size? (i.e. from D to E)

    It's come up in the past. A cursory search reveals nothing, but my recollection is that they aren't interested in recrafting a shoe around a different last.

    I'm going to guess no. I had a pair of Aldens that were a 1/2 size too big (all their lasts make fitting a challenge) and asked if they could recraft them on a smaller last and size down. They said no. Seems as though it would be easier to make a pair smaller than larger, which, I suppose, would require leather that isn't there.

    He doesn't mean last style (333, 565, 234, 222, etc). He means the physical last itself. A 333 10 D is a different foot model than 333 10 E

    According to a thread on Ask Andy, which linked to a now "404" page on AE's site, the Boardroom is the PA on the 7 last and the Nathan is the FA on the 8 last.

    For whatever that's worth.

    Which boots to get ahhhhh? I have zero boots right now. Wear slacks and a shirt to work and would sometimes like to wear it with dark denim as well. Looking for something in walnut type of color. Daltons? I dont want something too dressy though. I think even the Daltons look a bit dressy no?

    Your best bet is to wait for Brooks Brothers 25% off everything sale. That comes around pretty frequently.

    Happy Thanksgiving all! I'm wearing some AE loafers today. Don't know if I'll be able to post a pic with all this family around!
