    Just confirmed with the Costa Mesa, CA store that the shoes are never marked in the UK sizes and they are always in US sizes.
    She said that even the shoes that are specifically sent to Europe are marked in the US size and she knows that because if there are any defects they are sold as seconds in the US with the same US mark.

    Just double check your AE orders from endless.com fellas.

    Great! Mine showed up too, but there's a hole in the insole right below the heel, which is somewhat uncomfortable. I'm going to try to get a replacement pair. I love the dark brown color.

    So my chocolate Daltons showed up today and I couldn't be any happier. They look and fit great.

    Question: Do the AE Macneil longwings tend to run TTS or large on the sizing? I'm looking to grab a pair online...

    Yes, it's gone. I had been looking for these and the Hinsdale in my size for a few years and finally lucked out. These Coles run large which is great for me! They closely resemble the RL Darltons I've owned but the construction and fit are different. These are of true mocassin construction while the Darlton is not.

    All of my AEs are 12Bs. These fit me perfectly right out of the box and are consistent with the other AEs I have.

    Got my walnut Dalton's and love them.

    Any issue with using Obenhauf treatment on them for protection as I'll be wearing them a lot this winter?

    so the consensus on the board on the 5 and 2 lasts, aka the Players, 5th ave, or Strand, is to go one size wider and half a size smaller, am I right?

    Dunno about the #2, but you're right for the #5.

    However, if you have a higher instep, you may want to consider going up half a size and keeping the width for Allen Edmonds' 5-65 lasts (scroll down to the images at the end of the article).

    I haven't had time to check this more closely yet, but the last may come with a rather flat instep. That's a possible explanation I've found in the forum. The (rather) flat instep and the slightly narrow width would explain why some people simply size-up.

    I have the Macneils, and they run TTS IMO. Very comfortable. The shoes I've tried of AE's that I've had to change sizes in have been the Bel-Air and Randolph (up 1/2 size) and the Leeds (down a width). Nothing on the executive rubber last fits my foot at all b/c of the narrow tow box (Presidio, Lombard, etc.).
