good job on the cleaning. Maybe you can paint the metal eyelets to a darker color? Gives it a cockeyed look. Reminds me of this guy:http://www.unsungfilms.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/feldman01.jpg
Allen Edmonds Brentwood, Size 10D These shoes are in great shape. I would say they’ve only been worn once or twice. I wish they fit me so I could make them a part of my rotation. Only issue is that they original owner rubbed out the name of the shoe and AE logo on the insole. Can provide additional pix. WANTS: 41R(!) or 42R suits, lightweight fabrics, Italian name makers preferred NO dbl breasts. Also craving a italianish suit w/unstructured shoulders (at this pt...
I selling this pair of new Allen Edmonds MacNeil shoes, size 9.5D color brown, from their Rough collection. Nothing wrong with the shoes; only I’ve come to the conclusion that I need more dress shoes. Only tried these on when I first got them. And, that was on carpet. I have not worn them on the street or anything. The leather in these is a little distressed at parts, almost dry. I am told this is normal. I think AE recommends that you use conditioner and saddle soap...
Also, passed on this Pioneer TX8100. Was unpriced and I was going to ask the employees to tag it, but the line was humongous and they were short handed. Judging from all the other cdplayers/tapedecks they had there it probably would have been $25-35.Allen Edmonds Brentwood, sz 10d. Great shape and condition. The insole is rubbed out cheese grater style so I couldn't tell the model. I posted this pix to the AE thread and the fine gents there hipped me that these are...
Help id these AEs I bought @ a thrift. The model name of the sole has been washed out, but I think it begins with a B. Thanks in advance:
It's good. It's a government/company town so you find a lot of stuff that govt workers wear to blend in. Brooks Bros, HSMs, John W. Nordstrom stufff along with the usual Nautica, C Klein dress shirts that are all around the country. Nothing flashy that you would find in NYC or even Philly. With the rise in the contractor class, I've seen a lot of dress casual stuff like Banana Republic and the like that is showing up in the thrifts. If you apply yourself, you can pull...
Something from my rounds the last few days: Gitman white dress shirt, tagged 16.5 x 35, available NWT Coach braces, available 2 ties, the Lands End one is extra long so it’s for a longer torso. Most certainly available: Finally, NWT J Crew tan blazer. Size L. Picked it up to feed THE HABIT. I’m also disgusted with people stealing pix. On a related note, need to hit the torrents to d’load that new Avengers movie
Congrats. Nice choice.I'm not the authority on this, but I think someone mentioned that topys trap the moisture in the leather sole thus breaking down the leather via moisture. Leather soles are more breathable, if that makes any sense. Better to have a pair of vibram or rubber soled AE dress shoes when you're going to face inclement weather. Or, some rubber shoe covers could also work.
Darn you, AE! Any Kenilworth owners care to mention what they wear those shoes with? Suits, chinos, business casual, business? Thanks.
I have an old pair of shoes I would like to do this to. However, there is a little bit of cracked leather. Is cracked leather a dealbreaker?
