Hi Patrick -- Nice to see your name come up and thanks for the question. This is interesting to me and I'll relay your feedback to our production leaders. We've actually been taking our finishings UP the glossiness scale, not down, in line with fashion trends. In fact, you'll notice when we introduce our new "Refined Dress" shoes for fall in a couple of months, that we've taken our finishings to the highest level in our history. The samples we've produced look...
Greetings, MLJS54 --In all candor, you'll probably find the Patriots borderline tight, too, if the PAs are that way on your feet. The pinch point would be in a different spot across the top of your instep, though, so you may find the Patriots snug but not too tight (which is what you want in a dress loafer). They can be worked in, though, if the initial fit is not too bad for you out of the box.The 606 has more room inside the shoe, from the ball off the foot and foward...
Greetings, Style Forum Members! Well, I see that the Factory Seconds Flash Sale has already caught the attention of many of you. I was originally planning to post midday today on SF to make sure you were aware of it. Instead, I'll just provide some background. One of the things that shocked me nine years ago when I first became involved with AE is how few shoe companies actually produce the shoes that they sell under their labels. We're one of the remaining few brands...
Sorry to disappoint. Please go back to my original post that Mike imbedded in the Starting Post on the MTO Thread. It was about sole changes and different leathers.We've greatly expanded both leathers and soles in our regular price offerings, and will continue to add to them with our new chili and oxblood colors coming out these next few months, as well as adding some styles and colors to our "online only" offerings (our back room inventory constraints keep us from going...
Thanks! Look forward to the fall line-up, especially the offering for Rediscover America in early October. I think you'll be pleased. Let me know, though.Best wishes,Paul
Guys -- Actually, the picture here is of a completely different leather, tanned by Horween. The brush-off leathers that produced the large yellow patches in the midst of dark brown finishing are out of our warehouse. This Horween leather is a cowhide with great pull-up. Give it a chance.Best,Paul
Good Morning, SF Friends-- Thanks for all of your support and business. As you mentioned above, I should have come to StyleForum right away about the MTO program. My post last night on AAAC was the last action of the workday and I was an hour late getting home on a Friday with evening plans. Candidly, just before I left the office, Andy Gilchrist emailed me to let me know about the Thread on his site and I stayed to reply. For those of you who haven't seen what I...
Men -- I thought I'd join your thread. Below is a link to an article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, it's has good and broader information for you, and the reporter quoted me accurately. We will indeed maintain -- even continue to improve toward the endless pursuit of perfection -- our quality.Best wishes,Paulhttp://www.jsonline.com/business/mens-wearhouse-reported-bidding-for-allen-edmonds-b99126284z1-228843321.html
Tough crowd!It's a long story for this late. A summary: a little lift in back is fine, even good . Too much is hard on your foot under the arch. Flat appeals more on the shelf.Best wiahes,Paul
Hello again, Pastor --No surprise to anyone -- I do have both. The Patriot is snugger across the vamp at the penny strap line. There's more room right there in the Randolphs. The toe of the Patirot is broader and has more room for a broad foot at the toes. The Randolph tapers more, so you may need a longer size, depending on your foot shape.Those Townleys will fit like the Randolph, though -- so, if they fit well, that's a good size for you. Sorry about the stitiching...
