    I don't think this is true. They have RTW shoes too.

    Here are my Rancourt venetians that I purchased from Brooks Brothers.

    Let me clarify, as I meant all the shoes purchased directly from Rancourt are MTO.

    it's probably true that all Rancourt are hand sewn but they make shoes MTO or RTW as you can find it in BB, RL, or Steve Alan, and many other brands who collab with them.

    How do you contact the shoe bank? Google returns nothing useful.

    I emailed the shoebank yesterday and still have not heard back. I emailed Edward in Freeport, Maine and he hit me back in less than a minute. I have exchanged emails several times since then and he is very fast on the response. I just hung up with him and ordered the Elgin because, well you know a man can never have too many lace up brown wingtips and brogue shoes.....

    freeport@allenedmonds.com

    He is the only one in the store today so pretty busy but I would try him.

    Did you order anything else with the Elgin (2/$300)? Or just on their own? If so, how much are they going for?

    Shoebank got back to me already this morning. Now, do I want Neumora's and Fairfax's for the pick-2, or pass altogether... decisions...

    Picked up a pair of non-AE's today during Nordstrom's Anniversary sale and learned that I might have bought the wrong size in all my prior AE purchases. Nordstrom previously measured me as a 12D, which has been the size for all my AE purchases (Strands, Park Avenues, Malverns, Delrays). I've had no complaints regarding my 5 last shoes in this size, with the exception that I cannot walk more than a mile in them without experiencing discomfort on the heel or side. Today's SA said I'm really an 11EE and that I was previously buying shoes too long for me to get the width I needed. To be honest, the 11EE shoes fit pretty well so far, but I'm only walking around on carpet.

    Anyone else with a wide foot have a similar experience that they drop a full size in length with a EE? I would have thought the guy was full of it if not for the fact that he knew much more about his products than the typical SA.

    My experience, "D" widths are common (i.e. more inventory). Some sales people get as close as they can with what they have in stock. That or the measurements were taken incorrectly. The Nordstrom guy measured me at 12D also. I'm an 11C.

    When I went to a local AE store to have my foot measured in 5 last, I dropped from an 8.5D to a 7.5E. Like you, the larger of the two was much too narrow and long.

    when i went to my local AE the SA told me that usually ppl size down 1/2 and go a little wider on the 5 lasts but I guess I am an exception because both 10.5D and 10E seems to fit fine when I walk around in the store.
