Quick question...   are the mens leather perforated contrast boots being sold by brooks brothers just the cronmok made by AE, sold for Brooks Brothers? They look like the exact same shoe, but the brooks brothers model is on sale for $185.   SOMEONE PLEASE FILL ME IN
I know this photo was from forever ago... but GOODNESS! How in the hell did this guy ever think these fit his foot! His left foot is ok, but the right one is atrocious.
I am mormon... and yes you are right... though it's not exactly a religious obligation. We are told to do it, but it isn't a commandment (I guess maybe obligation is a good word for it). It's not about prepping for doomsday necessarily, it's just about being responsible parents.
I understand this... and I mentioned that in my post. Maybe I should have stated my issue in the following manner... Wouldn't AE be treating their customers better (this is what I was referring to when I mentioned customer service) by simply putting out a good product the first time around BEFORE they ship it to you rather than sending you a flawed product, letting you find the flaw, having you send it back, and wait several more weeks to get another pair of shoes that...
Also... I do have one issue with customer service, and I say this with the knowledge that when many of you say customer service you are talking about the actual employees that specifically handle customer service.   My issue is this: shouldn't quality control be taken into consideration when judging their customer service?
That is true about the customer service... Does Alden or others have poor customer service? Do they have quality control issues?  PS. I don't wish to cause an argument, I really just don't have any experience with other companies.
Am I the only one that is bugged by the steady increase in price on AE shoes? When AE was bought a while back the shoes were 349 for a new pair of calf skin shoes. Now they are 385. The shell has also increased significantly, to the point where they are the same price as Aldens. From what I have heard, Alden shell is consistently better than AE shell, though I have never seen a pair of Aldens in person (to my knowledge).   Am I the only one considering looking elsewhere...
I brought up this question a while back (several months ago), and I got ripped apart. I'm not sure if the issue is poor/sloppy craftsmanship, or just the fact that there are more flawed shoes as a result of the vast number of shoes they produce, but compared to other companies the ratio is the same and we just see more of them because people come to this forum to complain about their shoes, or ask questions regarding perceived flaws in the shoes. I don't know what the...
I need help sizing AE loafers guys. I measured a 10 d at an AE store, but my left foot is more like 9.5 d. I'm thinking I should go down half a size to 9.5 d.    Please let me know your experiences with loafer sizing. THANKS!
I'll pretend I didn't just read this post... otherwise I'd be tempted to check the watch forum
