Use cream polish. It's eaiser to work with and won't cake up. It's also more effective in keeping the leather supple. Weave tends to dry out quicker.
Actually, AE had an Italian line prior to the Seven's. Aside from the Seven's they still have some Italian made Blake stitched. My guess is that the Seven Series was an attempt to offer something more fashion forward and upscale to the Italian made that they were already carrying. I suspect that their intent was to delve into another market expanding their entire line with more variety. There could be many reasons why it didn't work. Many have voiced their opinion on...

On a product comparison i'm looking at simply what i see from Allen Edmonds to what I see from the other companies mentioned. Since you're post regards customer service, I bought 1 pair of AE at Lord and Taylor, 1 Pair at Nordstroms, and recently 3 pairs of RL shoes at Ralph Lauren (so thats Alden, C&J and the...
