Fair enough...i was at work and went a bit overboard to make a point...which i still think is a valid one. That the majority of people on this thread have a much higher expectation of what a "first" quality shoe is compared to the "average" AE customer.Take that black captoe a few posts back...my thought is that if the average AE customer got that shoe in the mail he would say "damn thats a great looking shoe!" Those are the customers that AE's QC tolerance (or...
I understand where you are coming from but don't completely agree.1) Operations/QC and customer service are totally different departments. One can be "bad" and the other "good"2) If AE were to have their QC tolerances set at a range to meet SF member requirements...they would be a $1,000 shoe. They set the range for first quality to meet the "average" customer expectations and to be able to maintain the COGS.
Had a gift card...saw there was a sale at the shoebank...saw a brown dundee in my size and took a chance. I have never ordered seconds before so was a bit aprehensive. Just got them today and they look better than the burgandy firsts that i just returned. The flaws that i could see: one toe cap is a little bit dry and rough, the tops of both are a bit folded over, on both there is a small crease right above the welt. There may be more flaws but i didn't notice them. I...
I have four Merino V-neck sweaters from last year (medium) and they all fit well, small variation in size between the four, well within acceptable limits IMO.   I just picked up one of the Saxxon V-necks (medium) in the current sale and it is WAY bigger than my 4 Merinos.    I assume it's mismarked but I wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this with these sweaters.    
Selling a very gently used Sam Hober Burgundy Grenadine Piccola tie (GPT-3). Has been worn maybe 4-5 times and is in mint shape.    57 x 3.5 (4 fold standard construction) - $65 TYD   I am selling due to the tie being a bit too long for me.   Thanks for looking...
I bought these shirts last summer for interviews and they have hung in the closet unworn.  $40 each or both for $70...PayPal only   Thanks for looking
Close...burgundy piccola   Thanks!
I just received two more ties...Bitter chocolate grossa (4 fold) and Flower silk - 35 (6 fold)     They join the small but growing family     I make no claim as to the color accuracy
So the heel of my Finch began to separate after owning for about 5 months...AE said no problem, send in and we'll fix.   Got them back and noticed that when they sanded the heel it looks like they slipped and gouged into the stitching.  I emailed pics to AE and they told me that it is just cosmetic.   Would you accept it and move on or try and have them fix it?            I think they should fix the shoe but I don't know if I am being...
Just ordered my 4th and 5th Hober ties...can't wait!   Just want to echo what others have said concerning David...he truly is a class act.  I had a problem with one tie during shipment and David went far beyond my expectations in correcting the issue.    Some pics of my first three...   Burgundy Piccola 4-fold, Macclesfield #83 6-fold   Macclesfield #135 6-fold       [[SPOILER]]   Don't know why some pics are larger...same dimensions??   Color balance is a bit...
