I'm very glad to hear the recent discussion regarding the Maritime and Kirkwood shoes . . . I've been thinking about getting one of each!   Anyone think we'll see a sale on firsts in these styles for Father's Day?

In the last photo, you can see on the right lateral aspect of the toe box that there seems to be a small gouge in the leather. Not a big deal to me, as I'll probably put some wear and tear on...
Wearing the RL Singletons today.
Stopped by the Philly AE store today to look around. I'm always reminded of how much better the shoes look in person and how god awful the photographs on AE's site are. Looked at a pair of oxblood Daltons but decided the color is too purple for me. A Bob's Chili Dalton may be in my future. I also rekindled my love affair with the brown Vernon. What a beautiful shoe on a great last. Also, I was at the Ralph Lauren store in the city yesterday and although I already own a...
 Whoa.  Did AE do that for you, or was it an after-market modification?
