I also picked up a pair of Carlyle's this past weekend (in dark chili) but have only worn them once. Questions for you: 1. Are you using cedar shoe trees?2. Are you wearing the shoes two days in a row or more?3. Have you conditioned and polished the leather prior to wearing them for the first time?4. How often do you sit with your "feet bent" at your desk (assuming you have a desk)?
I've been buying Allen Edmonds for only about two years now, most often taking advantage of significant sale pricing and seconds. Brooks Brothers branded seconds have always sold for around $150.00 during such sales, although I don't know why they are so much less. I'm not complaining and plan to pick up my first pair during the next sale.
In theory this would make sense; however, I wear my Rush Streets in the office only and don't really wear them any more than my two pair of dress AE's with the tap sole. Again, I'm not saying that the Danite soles wear down too quickly, they just don't seem quite as durable as the tap soles.
This has been my experience as well - the tap soles seem to be more durable than the Danites. Now, that's not to say that theDanites aren't of high quality, they just seem more prone to wear and tear relative to the tap soles. I also think the tap soles look more professionals - Danites seem better for more casual shoes (Rush Street).
I really like this pairing and the Rush Street in Olive. I have them in Golden CXL and love them!
My understanding is their business is really booming and have thus increased production quite a bit. I'd imagine that their error rate then increases but is still relatively low. Not saying it's acceptable but I think that's the rationale.
I have these same shoes - my favorite pair of "dress" AE's!
I'd hit it.
They look great! I have this same shoe in snuff suede - one of the two most comfortable shoes I own (the suede Amok being the other).
I don't know if they still sell it but they had a belt called the Cottonwood in red, green, and blue to match the different colors of Neumoks. It might be worth calling a Shoebank to see if they have any left if they have indeed been discontinued.
