    I've got the Barrie lasted tanker from Context Clothing in a 7.5E as well as some wingtip boots from LeatherSoul also in a 7.5E and on the Berrie last. They seem to fit the same to me. Any difference is negligible.

    Yes. :nodding:

    On virtually every pair of shoes I own, including Aldens, I replace the laces with AE laces (even new Aldens right out of the box). Indeed, just prior to seeing your post, I ordered 7 pairs of said laces from AE. I have found that AE laces stay tied better, and last longer. Just last night I changed laces on my C&J brown shell Bradfords to AE waxed laces. I also use AE edge dressing exclusively.

    Today I am wearing my Alden black shell LWBs - with AE laces. :D

    A good day to one and all.

    Does AE make waxed flat laces long enough for boots?

    Does Allen Edmonds make their own laces? The AE website advertises Benjos. I purchase them from AE as they ship for free. Otherwise there is a larger selection of colors and lengths on the Benjo website.

    Just to clarify, I buy only the dress laces from AE. I have no Benjos.

    ah, I see it now...I couldn't see the drop-down for Pre-orders when I checked on my phone, but I see it on my computer now. Looks like you can only order standard D widths tho, which pretty much kills any pre-order for me unfortunately. Or I guess fortunately in this case, since I really don't have any money to spend on any more shoes right now.

    Yeah, I was a bit put out by that too. I really like the Black Alpine Grain longwings but cannot get them in an "E" width. I can squeeze into the "D" though so will probably go ahead and order them regardless. I am a sucker for the crepe sole.
