    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Get it, even if you have to return it later...

    It's from the Seven Collection, the construction and quality will be fantastic.

    @BFBFB: Thanks. I'm not a big fan of the brown for the neumok.

    @rxcats: If if you are D size, you can get the Neumok on Endless for $200 after coupon (ends today) or lower with different cashback sites like ebates (13% for endless).

    My walnut Kenilworth came in today - they are great! at $149 for good quality seconds, these were a steal. They fit bigger than the strands in the same size, but I actually prefer the bigger size (I think this means my strands are a bit snug for me). Anyway - here is a photo (with and without flash). I might actually pick up a second pair in brown or black while they are on sale.

    Yep, just picked up some Kenwoods yesterday.

    I live in Chapel Hill so it is just a quick 20 min. Trip on 40.

    I like dealing with Doug but all the SA's are very well informed about fit etc.

    Assuming you know your Park Avenue size, did you order the same size since they are on the same last? I gather that the Kenilworth runs slightly larger, but I'm not sure if it's a whole 1/2 size larger.

    In a word NO!

    Nice store but limited sizes, sure they can check company wide inventory and have it shipped but...

    Now if there is some other reason that brings you to the area sure check it out.

    Gents, I purchased AE 5th St boot in dark brown form endless sale. I am a US8EEE. Since these boots don’t come in EEE I bought 8.5D. I don’t own any AE currently but do have few RL (made by AE) in 8E (I assume they are 8D but marked as E for Australian market)which are extremely painful due to the narrow toe box.
    Any thought on how 8.5 would fit ?
    Thanks in advance .

    Since its the 5 last (long and narrow), I'd say that an 8.5D will fit similarly to what you'd normally expect from a TTS 9C/9B. The general rule for this last is take your Brannock size and go down one in length, and up one in width to compensate. Doesn't always work though and some people even go up sizes!

    Can't really say how it will fit compared to the RL boots without knowing which AE last they were made on.

    Where did you pick them up? What size are you normally in dress shoes? I'm waiting on my kenilworth as well

    The rough leather of the McTavish doesn't fit as tightly to the last during fabrication as compared to calf. So the fit will be a little looser.

    The brown Neumok looks better in real life. The AE website photos are horrible. All their shoes look better in person.

    Would you say the pictures on Endless are more representative to what you'd get?

    I don't know how much difference this really makes, but I like trees that are wide enough to fill out the heel area and have a higher vamp to fill out the front. I've started to only use trees such as the Epic or the Washburn or Ultra. I don't like the spilt trees with the narrow heels that are sold on the AE site.

    Again, it may be overkill. But just seems better to me.

    me neither lol. i agree though i like the heel area wide on the tree because the trees i have now are very narrow.
    - only thing i'm worried about on epic trees is that brass knob breaking off or coming loose. anyone run into that issue?

    Agreed. The brown Neumok is amazing looking in person! I want 'em, but I wouldn't wear with anything but jeans or casual chinos.

    No, you really have to see them in person to appreciate the texture and depth of color. I bought the red Neumok, but it was hard not to get one of each. The colors are rich and unique. Trickers makes some great colored brogues but they lack the texture of the Neumok. I don't know how else to describe it.
