    Yeah, I will likely end up with them in black as well. They fit me very well and I just love how they look.

    Can anyone relate how the 5-65 last compares to the 8-108? I wear an 11.5d in the 8 last Delrays.

    No comparison between the two other than they're both longwings. The MacNeil is traditional and, to some people, a little outdated in light of the sleeker lasts that are prevalent nowadays. The Regent Street is a much more contemporary last.

    I hate to stray from AE, but WOW. Those Meermins look absolutely incredible. PM'd for details.


    Back on AE- these Jefferson's are gorgeous. If anyone wants pics, I'll post in a few days.

    I realize I'm late to the party, but thought I'd chime in. If well shined, the Cambridge, MacNeil and !eeds are all dressy enough for a suit. I also wear all 3 with slacks and oxfords or sweaters, though to my eye the Cambridge is a bit too dressy for that (intellectually I know the heavy brogueing makes them less formal, but to my eye they look pretty formal).

    I have literally worn my Leeds and Macneils in burgundy shell with everything from jeans to suits, and even with shorts in the summer. My Cambridges in burgundy shell are used for suits and finer wool slacks.

    I can't say enough good things about Nordstrom's customer service. I was measured as a 9B last month and when I got the shoe it just didn't feel right. I wore it for about 2 weeks and decided to see what could be done about the fit. I was re-measured and turns out I am an 8.5C (I ordered the 9D just to be safe). Fast forward several weeks and I have my new pair of Fifth Streets, no extra charge.

    Thanks guys. And as was pointed out, you can return seconds as well I believe.

    Building on this question, I will pose another one actually. I'm looking for a black calf shoe to pair with a tux for my wedding (I've already decided against patent leather) and am basically considering the black calf AE Vernon (it's basically marketed as a black tie shoe that can be used anywhere else you might use a black cap toe bal) and a Meermin black calf wholecut. I really like the look of black wholecuts but if you guys don't think they'd be appropriate to wear anywhere else I might stay away.

    For comparison's sake:

    AE Vernon (~$250 firsts)

    Meermin Wholecuts (~$200)

    Thoughts?

    Or you can throw caution to the wind and get the dark brown shell marlow wingtip by C&J, also at 25% off. :D

    The shoe is stunning.

    While I stop short of donning Leeds and/or Macneils with shorts (but to each their own), I don't disagree with anything bucksfan says above. And his comment about the Cambridge (in bold) is spot on, IMO.

    Picked up a pair of walnut strands and Wolverine 1000 mile 744 LTDs (shell cordovan, boots made by AE) in the past couple weeks. I'm in love.

    Congrats! Those Wolverines look gorgeous. Are the 744s the brown or the color 8? They are both amazing

    I was in a similar situation, and ended up with these: http://www.kentwang.com/shoes/benchgrade-plaintoe-balmoral.html
