I hear you. I just ordered my second shoe\boot in cappuccino shell in a weeks time so I am trying to help level the playing field between walnut and truffle availability    Got an email today from the Jeffersonville Ohio Outlet about the next uncoming sale. You should be able to click on the images to read them in larger size.    
    That is some beautiful shell porn!
Guess I whined more than once on here about not being able to pick up the Cappuccino shell McAllister’s when they were offered. Several people sent me PM’s soon after Paul made his offer that I might be able to now get them. I did, ordered them a week ago last Friday, thank you!   My goal for shell is a boot, chukka and wingtip shoe (except for black, went with PA) in each color of shell available. When I called Friday before last to place the order I also went to...
That was my first thought too!   MacktasticGDogg nice job. I have had the same thought collecting a number of shell samples over the last year from AE. But I also want the natural shell and like the job that Dave Mitchell did on my shell wallet. So when the bleeding is over with shoes will contact him and see if he would make up 2 straps from leather supplied by me (samples) in addition to the natural shell that he...
Thank you! Yeah I picked up the Daltons at the beginning of the webgem offering in December and the Strands on the last day of the offering. Would have been very hard for me to do so without the AAFES special order program. But even with it I ended up moonlighting for a few hours a week starting a few years ago to help pay for my shoes and boots. And it is time well spent.  Good luck and hope they work out for you. Just take your time with each shoe and boot to make sure...
UH OH!! Please do me a favor and before you post pictures of them warn me so I will not be tempted. On the other hand I was thinking early today that I should sell my Alden Ravello chukka's and replace them with another AE Dundee. I really like your choice polojock615... . The last thing I need is for you guys to get me started in exotic leathers, outside of shell that is. Although last year about this time I shot a sub gauge event with a lawyer down in Nebraska who had...
I was thinking Chili Sharkskin Dundee's. But now that you mention it..... hmmmm I like it! 
When I normally order shell which is MTO I get charged right then. However with Paul's offer she told me when I placed my order last week that my card would not be charged until the shoes are completed. Not sure if that is standard procedure or not, it kind of surprised me, and in a good way. Well done Pastor. If you don't mind me asking do you have a shoe in mind for black to complete the rainbow? And the third word is??? LOL you know my answer. Very interested to see...
Good question Max. Long story but a week ago today I was talking to the SWAT team that Paul put together and they were looking to send me a 10.5D and 10E Bayfield to check for fit. She was able to find a 10.5D which should come today but the only 10E left in the world was in Italy and she said she couldn't call them back because of customs. So I think they do have some of the American collection. But rumor had it that the brown shell Townley was only available for the...
It only seems obsessive for the first year or so. Then you find yourself checking this site and thread every time you check your email and all of a sudden you find it normal behavior  But it is dangerous because so many posters put up real life pictures of their AE shoes and you realize just how great they look compared to the pictures on the website and you just have to have them as your next shoe. Yeah outside of town to the NE. You all were supposed to get this not us!...
