    I bought a pair of black Park Avenues from Nordstrom last month for $308. I couldn't pass up burgundy Nathans / Fifth Avenues for $213.50.

    Polish them with dark brown, and carefully a bit of black on the toe now and then. I did similar and these are my Walnut Strands now (no flash). J

    PSA: We're making good progress on several Eagle County MTOs at a sale price of $260!

    Anyone interested needs to let me know TONIGHT as I'll be contacting Allison in the morning. More details and discussion at the MTO thread.

    Makeup #1 - Brown Grain (currently at 11 with a couple on the fence, I expect we'll hit 1

    Makeup #2 - Chili Grain (>13)

    Makeup #3 - Oxblood - currently at 6, assuming Brown Grain goes over 12. Otherwise, we'll have 13 for this make up.

    HI guys,

    About to buy a pair of Navy Cronmoks from the Black Friday sale -- had a size question. The only other pair of AE's I have are Shell Dundees, size 10. They fit well and if anything are slightly roomy. How does the 65 Cronmok last fit comparatively? Should I stick with the 10 or go down to 9.5?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Can't speak to the dundees, but my neumok's seems true to size. About to pull the trigger on a blue pair myself.

    anyone own both the Shaker Heights and the Dalton?, wanting a size, fit comparison. am a 10.5D in the shaker heights and have researched the Dalton as much as possible but seems to be swarms of conflicting info about it running narrow or true to size etc. so boot wise the shaker heights is my closest point of reference.

    Based in Australia so cant waltz into a store for a fitting so need to be 100% before purchasing,

    also if someone has some excellent walnut Daltons in whatever size turns out right that they want to sell hit me up, the AUD/US exchange rate is a bit painful at the moment so new pair is ideal but very heavy on the wallet

    I just purchased my first pair of AE's. Walnut Brown Sanford's off ebay. Paid $75. Not sure if that's a good deal or not but I don't care. They're the ones I wanted.

    I am a 13D in Shaker Heights(dress socks) and 13E in Dalton...I have owned 13D Daltons and my foot overspilled the footbed slightly. With the 13E I get no heel slip and it fits really well both in length and width.

    Love those. It's possible that you could have found it for cheaper eventually, but there's nothing quite like getting exactly what you want when you want it. :)

    The Sanford's look exactly like the Strand's to me except for the number of eyelets. Is the only other difference the last that was used in manufacture?

    Yeah, so I'm pretty infatuated with my Shell MacNeils.

    As you should be! Are those #8 or Black? I can't tell from the pic, but I have an idea they won't be your last pair of shell.

    Sweet pair of shoes! Been eyeing a pair in my size on the Shoebank for a while now but I'm hoping to see it fall from the $499 price before I jump on them...

    So I know the AE sportcoats aren't well reviewed and at $400 quite a lot of money for something with a poor cut (they are half and fully canvassed btw) but I came across this made-in-USA charcoal wool dress pant on sale for $99.
    http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SFAE8001_1_40000000001_-1?style=AE8001

    I've got a pair of charcoal pants already but somebody may want to give these a try. Looks like AE moved their production elsewhere for the subsequent batches but they have some of this model left!
