    Yes I got it to work on the Park Ave, but I ended up calling my local AE store and asked them to price match since I couldn't get a 10E from Macys. They were more than happy to take care of me

    Good luck ......I got the University on the one day sale last week, they were clearance at 65% off regular price of $365 then I had a coupon for another 20% off to get to the $102. I know there are still some limited pairs in the ATL area Macy stores. I picked a pair for a buddy at work in an 11D as well, he was thrilled!

    Hey everyone, I have a question about winter/rain care for my AE cognac McTavish. Hopefully California will get rain this winter and was wondering how do I weather proof my shoes? This is my first pair of nice shoes and don't want to ruin them. Any advice? Thanks

    I believe the Williams (Independence line) is constructed on the 2-last. I take both the 5-last and 8-last in the same size, but some people here go up one width size ( for example: from D to E).

    In conclusion, if you find the 5-last perfect, then move up one width; if you find the 5-last to be slightly wide, then stick with the same size.

    Thanks for the heads up! My local AE store price matched as well. I would rather give them my business than Macy's. The customer service is amazing there.

    Hello,

    Picked up these from N-rack. Merlot AR Clifton for $150 and Magnanni for $200. My question is should I keep both or take one back? If so which and why? I know the AE is of higher quality but I'm not sure if Merlot is a versatile color. The Magnanni is brown and I thought would be more versatile a color and style.

    ....be easy guys I'm new to this.

    Thanks

    I have a little bit of heel slip on my Jeffersons. I went for 6.5E because I noticed that my strands that are 6.5D are too damn tight and well I couldn't exchange them anymore (talking about the strands here) and I have wore it at least 20 times already. Any thoughts? I put those things that you put on the heel and it helps somewhat.

    I don't really want to return the Jeffersons because there are not anymore of them in the company and well they were not so sure if they could make them because of the scarcity of the leather, unless I went on black which I don't want to.

    Well dang, did you see any 12Ds? Thats a great score. Which stores did you check out. I didn't think Macy had any in store AE shoes. Just online.

    Clifton all the way. Merlot is a very versatile color; it can be worn where brown is appropriate and IMHO looks better with navy than brown.

    In terms of versatility, a perf cap toe blucher us also easier to dress up/down than a balmoral quarter brogue.

    Obviously, in terms of maker magnanni will not find a lot of love here over AE.

    Tongue pad perhaps...do you have enough room in front of foot to go to a medium weight sock?

    I can try that and no thats the funny thing. The socks that I'm using are between thin and medium weight, but it feels already snug enough. I don't think I can go for anything heavier than this.
