Its interesting, of all the new burgundy colors/browns, i think i still like Merlot the best...it has a richer, classier tone to it than the Oxblood, in addition to the fact that I dont think im any longer a fan of the temporary/burnished shades that change back to their original monochromatic color over time after a few polishing. And Bobs chili is an excellent color, which i will be getting soon, but its too close to brown to be as versatile as Merlot has been for me.
I havent seen the teardown before, but this is how I feel as well...its quite apparent, according to the consensus ive read, that there are undoubtedly much better quality and better looking shoe brands than allen edmonds...but I can say that, in all candor I honestly love the brand myself...It fits my conservative style of dress very well, so ill likely be a lifelong customer as well. Ive got a great rapport with my local allen edmonds retail store, and i love going...
Interesting feedback....it seems like allen edmonds are a decent enough shoe for the retail price, but once you start a comparison/ competition between Allen Edmonds and any other shoe brands aside from kenneth cole and cole haan, Allen Edmonds loses the comparison/competition almost invariably and across the board. So basically, if any other, even half decent, shoe maker begins to produce shoes in multiple widths, Allen Edmonds would likely be staring at bankruptcy....
So it seems like ive heard this a few times, and im wondering if its true...the general consensus seems to be that Allen Edmonds shoes arent a good value at full price ...and that theyre really only a good value if they are discounted or on sale. Doesnt this mean that allen edmonds shoes are of low quality if the only dress shoes they are superior to are Cole Haans/Kenneth Coles? And since this appears to be the case, why do people still seem so excited about getting a...
yeah...I had kinda thought the same thing there for a while...and youre right, it is consistent...and im not sure there is any actual logic behind it. Because even though I probalbly prefer the Kenilworth in terms of looks because I think the lack of a capline and broguing makes it look somewhat sleek for a blucher. BUT I fully acknowledge that its nothing more than a preference....but functionally, I dont see a HUGE difference either....style wise they are similar, but...
just, no...as in, hell no.
And those were precisely the ones I was thinking of...that particular color combination on those shoes is ice cold.
Ive been saying the same thing in here for a year or so now, but it is always interpreted as making excuses for allen edmonds blobby lasts...but I too wear a size 15...and like you said, people come along with these itty bitty feet and are suprised when non italian shoes look blobby on their feet.
yeah, ive seen the shell kenilworths and they look spectacular in the most understated way, and I think theyd go with my style better than the leeds. I noticed these lexingtons, from certain angles can look a bit stodgy and geometric compared to the smooth, seamless contours of the kenilworth.
