Remember, this is a trilogy not just a movie. JJ already said that her role will be more prominent in Episode 8...
Those are not first quality. In fact, those look worse than the many seconds I've purchased.
I've had my eye on a pair I was looking to replace and have never seen them drop below $157, even during significant sales. I'd say go for it.
Ditto. I have the natural tan version and I'm very surprised at how much they've darkened over the two years I've had them. As well, they have a dirty look to them despite having taken excellent care of them. I'd be much happier if they would have stayed closer to the color when I got them (even the guy at the AE store was surprised at how much they had changed).
I would say a pair with a double oak sole (e.g. McTavish, Buckstrand currently on sale, etc.). A chukka boot would be nice as well.
The picture was taken shortly after receiving them and not having conditioned with anything. Since that time I've used Leather Honey and more recently Sahpir Renovator. The hold up extremely well and the color maintains over time. Extremely comfortable as well. Also, and if it might be hard to tell in the picture, these are simply brown leather and not CXL leather.
Someone recently expressed interest in a pair of natural tan McTavish so I thought I'd post a pic of my two-year old pair. These were recently treated with Renomat and went through one recraft (AE mistakenly put on a single sole instead of the double oak sole). They have been treated only with saddle soap over the years:     Same shoes from a year ago:   Hit my beloved Jeffersons with some Renovater (sp?), AE neutral cream polish, and Saphir neutral wax polish on...
Good idea. I have them in natural tan but they darkened considerably and I really need a smaller size (but the tongue pads help). I've had my eye on a second pair (this time in the proper size) for a long time now and I've never seen them below $157.00. Get them while you can!
Don't do what I did and simply think you need to increase width. Here's my experience: I originally sized between a D and E width on an 11.5. I tried an 11.5E and the shoe was too wide and caused back pain. I went down to an 11E and the front part of the shoe (where the ball of your foot is) is now too narrow. I then switched to an 10.5EEE and the fit is perfect. So, from an 11.5E to an 10.5EEE in the end. I also have a high instep if that matters. I don't think these look...
 I also polished my walnut Jeffersons and my tan Ashbury Chelsea boots + cleaned my CXL Rush Streets and natural tan McTavishes. First time using Sahpir Renomat (sp?) and Renovator. I polished the Ashbury and Jefferson's with Allen Edmonds cream polish and did the toe area with natural/clear Sahpir was polish. I simply could not get a nice shine despite following the instructions on The Hanger Project. Put on a a final layer of Kiwi and they look great. The Renomat...
