    How much difference do you think that there is between 11D and 10.5D on the 5 last?

    Just curious which outlets are good to call, they ship correct? I called the Jefferson outlet and they have no Amsterdams :(

    Probably quite a bit as the 5 last is pretty long. However if in 10.5 your laces don't close fully in 11 they probably will which would fit well.

    FWIW I have Park Avenue (5 last) in 10D, close the laces fully but personally wanted a more snug fit without closing laces fully so I ordered 9.5 Amsterdam (5 last) this time around. So yeah in retrospect I dont think there is a big difference provided you are kind of inbetween sizes.


    Try the WI one (262-284-7158). If you are a 9.5 D though, there aren't any left.

    The laces don't close all of the way on my PA's. I'm guessing that it's more an issue of width than length. $99 sounds like a great deal, especially since I hadn't heard about bourbon McAllisters, but I think that I'll have to hold off.

    What's the phone number for the store? I'm going to call them again in a bit.

    I called the WI outlet and spoke to a gentleman about the Randolph in the Chili Grain. He said they were $99 through the rest of the day. I called and ordered them from Shirley and she said they were $179. I went ahead and ordered them and called back and spoke to the guy again and he told me he would tell Shirley and make sure she changed it to $99. Great customer service. I ordered the Elgin and the Randolph each for $99.

    Well, I've gone back and forth numerous times regarding my next AE purchase. I started out with the staple Black PA. A few weeks later, Amazon had excellent prices on the Strand and Dalton in Walnut so I jumped in. Now I know exactly why the Walnut Strand is so popular around here!

    I'm trying to make a decision on a darker brown shoe for suits. Originally, I was leaning toward the Fifth Avenue, but I've started to consider a Shell Strand. I originally thought two Strands might be overload in my minimal collection, but after receiving my Walnut Strands I'm a big fan. So I guess the question is whether I should go with a brown Fifth Ave. or a Shell Strand? Any other options I should consider?

    Ugh that's not fair, the lady told me $ 179. Do you know the name of the guy you spoke to? I should call again and try?

    I never caught the guys name. If you want them, I would definitely call back and just tell them you were speaking with the gentleman there and got disconnected. He told me twice they were $99 for today only. That's a deal I couldn't pass up so it would be worth it to me to call and speak to him.

    Picked up a pair of dark brown Clifton's (shoebank) at $129, I'm happy. Couple of polish colors too

    Not sure if anyone else has replied on this, but among my 8 pr of AE shoes are the Strands in both Walnut and Dark Brown. The latter is just as awesome as the former, you can't go wrong, plus the toe cap is in the 'right place', unlike the Fifth Ave

    Here's a question: after all the Bourbon McAllisters are 'gone' (the Urban Dandy special makeup), do you have to order it as a custom (higher price too), or has anyone heard if AE will continue making the McAllister in Bourbon?

    Actually amazon ended up having the Daltons on special again and combined with the low shipping you pointed out worked out to be the best alternative. Had to order 2 pairs of hedge my bets on sizing. No one on amazon was shipping the manistee belt to aus to picked that up from Hansens. Overall very happy with the prices and my first pair of AE are on the way :)
