You have 65 posts and I think at least 20 of them are taking jabs at Luxire about the website every few weeks. We get it, you don't like the current website and think a new website is never coming. Message received loud and clear.
Thanks. Seems very counter-intuitive as I can get plasticky shiny shoes for a 1/3 the price that AE charges. The selling point is buying quality shoes that do not look like plastic. I wonder if they are treating the soles with something similar. The soles on the recrafts that I got back a few weeks ago were treated with something as they do not scuff at all.
The only way this is a valid question is if @europrep had Aaron fit him in person. Otherwise, I'm not sure how you compare emailing pictures of a trial suit with having a tailor measure and fit you in person. I'm a KW fan, but I'd much rather have a tailor measure and fit me in person than rely on the picture exchange method (assuming the tailor has the requisite skill, which is not always the case with all MTM outfits).
I will have to give serious thought to whether I will send another pair of AE's in for re-crafting. I sent a pair of chukka's in a few years ago that returned with a deep scratch very prominently placed in the center of the toe. I did not say anything because I naively thought I could polish over it. It was too deep and remains very prominently on the toe of the boots. Chalking the first instance up to bad luck, I sent a pair of Walnut Strands in for re-crafting...
