AE needs to bring back a sleek shortwing. You may be able to find a Belair on the bay. Another option is the Hinsdale (discontinued too).
Yep. TTS. Last is slimmer in the forepart of the shoe than the barrie last.
Went with the BB shell ptbs today:
Nobody special makes the Verona. I think it's the same makers that make the Saks Fifth Ave made in Italy shoes. I was talking to an AE SA and he said that they started selling these Italian style loafers and they caught on. They have really thin soles and are blake constructed so they're not as robust as their GW shoes.
Cool.Nick, could you put in a fiber or steel "normal" shank when you do a recraft of an AE shoe? That may be an option for me when I need some of my AE shoes resoled. I have some shoes with shanks and I can definitely feel more support. Thanks.
Pix of the your brown leeds? There are some crazy dudes at the alden thread that are paying hefty premiums for cigar shell.
[[SPOILER]] Stuart Mcquire (sp?). Pretty cool old school maker.
I'll answer that if you post your net worth statement What does FTW mean?
BB shell #8 PTBs today. I got these resoled with crepe by BNelson.
Hey guys, A while ago I nabbed these shell BB PTBs from a thrift shop. I posted them here. The soles were at the end so I sent them to B Nelson. I opted to get the crepe soles on them. I just got them back and they look great. I commented that these look almost cigar like but Alden/BB never made them in Cigar. Just burgundy and black. I'll take a pix of them in the sunlight when I wear them to see if you can still see any burgundy. They don't have that leather cover on...
