    My Weybridges after a toe and heal shine session. Man I love these shoes, and definitely need to pick up some Flatirons.

    Are the AE Park and Fifth Avenues TTS (In Size D)? I'm a 9 in dress shoes/running shoes and 8.5 in boots. Been looking at pairs online but not quite sure if I should get them. Thanks.

    for those of you who like the Williams shoes. RL's Sanderson is on sale for $315+tax if you can find yourself a private-sale code.

    Depends on what "dress shoes" you are saying you are a 9 in. I, for example, am a 12D in most AEs, 11.5D in Alden Barrie, 13 in New Balance running shoes and either 13 or 14 in Nike running shoes. If I were you, I'd just find a store (Jos. A Bank, Nordstrom, AE) to get sized and try them on.

    If they are sized like the Strand, I would say they are close to it. They are a bit narrower and longer than a TTS 9D though. I don't think they are long enough to go down a half size though.

    What color are those Cambridges? They look great.

    The Larchmont is the new longwing that AE came out with this year. Have you tried them, and if you have, how do they compare to the McNeil? Thanks...

    I have seen them in the store. The principal difference is the squared-off toe. Take a look at the different views for the shoe on the Allen Edmonds website. I have to say I like the round-toe look better.

    Completely agree. I looked right past them on the AE site. The leather does not show nearly as nicely as in the photos posted her. Will seriously consider these now.

    I have not tried them, but I have tried the "Flatiron" which is on the same last. It was very comfortable, but the extended, soft squared toe is not my style.
