I disagree with the volume assessment. The spacing of the eyestays looks good. It looks like the left shoe has some thinner leather, possibly cut closer to the belly. That leather will crease in more places, and usually even feel different to the hand. Just my $0.02...
the bowing looks to be caused by your feet being flat. The Brannock device measures your foot heel-toe-toe and heel-to-ball, but it makes a lot of assumptions about your feet (average instep, narrower at the mid-foot than at the ball, etc). I would try going to an E width- possibly a half-size down, if you don't want too much volume in front. You seem like a good candidate for arch support inserts, as well. you may need the E width to accommodate the insert, but it would...
[IMG] Lake Forest and Acheson. Both new models. One has classic rolled binding and the other has Profila binding.
To be clear, the "piping" or binding has not been removed on these styles everyone is discussing. These styles feature a "profila" binding, rather than the classic rolled binding seen on the Timeless Classics. Look closely at the topline of any of the new styles. The binding is tucked below the edge of the upper. Completely removing the binding could compromise the integrity of a calfskin shoe. The difficulty that the profila binding raises, in my opinion, is that you are...
^ I am that person! I want a Grayson so bad, but I cannot get a size to work for me... To your point about "blind" trying: I have some funny stories about that. Guys who "have always worn a 12" fit like a glove in a 10.5 EEE, until they hear the size. "10.5?! You know they feel a little short..." LOL
I believe, what the associate was trying to convey is this (drawing on my own experience): Often times, customers assume that they can only wear one specific last, thereby limiting their options. What we (AE employees) sometimes make an effort to get across is most guys can wear numerous, if not all of our lasts. They may have to adjust sizes in different lasts, but they really aren't limited to one last. I only have to explain this when a customer comes in stating, "The 8...
Hey all. Quick update on Chicago She'll Trunk Show shoes: I spoke with Jim Kass, VP of production, yesterday and he told me that Chicago orders should be done by Jan 10. Thanks for your patience. Jim wants to make sure we get these shoes done right. Best, Ryan
So here's the update:There will be sample shoes in each color in Chicago and NYC. All other shows will have swatches on hand.The limit is 25 pairs of each color per store.The South Coast show has been moved to San Francisco Embarcadero.I'll have images of each hide shortly and will post as soon as I receive it.FYI: Natural has been the most pre ordered color in my store, by far (i think 12 pairs) so get orders in asap.Ryan
Good morning all! A quick update on the trunk show, with more to follow later this afternoon: I just got back from a few days of meetings in MPLS, so I haven't been as prompt at returning emails as I'd like. Apologies for that. I have a conference call with the head of production in about two hours in which we will hammer out a few details regarding the upcoming trunk shows. I'm hoping to get an update on the supply of limited colors, including the estimated number of...
This is the one color I haven't seen images of. Waiting on some clarification, but I'm imagining it may be similar to the Chocolate calf Dalton. Very dark. I'll confirm when I hear more.
