Do you know what time they close or where I could get the information?
Correct, although I've also read that a Balmoral does not necessarily have to be closed laced and that and an oxford means the shoe has a seam going downwards to the sole. So its possible that a balmoral is not necessairly and oxford.Edward green described a derby boot as a balmoral recently to which EG clarifies their definition of a balmoral to someone that comments that EG described it incorrectly:https://instagram.com/p/BAkFDwUCazk/I'm sure there's some correct...
My thoughts on the upcoming collection:1.The leather sneakers on the far end look much more wearable than the suede ones, as long as they don't all have a textured (weave?) side panels.2. Instead of the suede sneakers, the grey suede strandmok might be something I consider for casual wear. I usually hate closed laced shoes mixed with casual details, but the grey suede and white rubber soles make them pretty wearable with jean/khakis.3. I usually don't find weaved shoes...
   So there is AS for AFPOS on the site now which to me are basically Alfred Sargent made to the same standards as AS for J Crew and AS for Herring shoes. The designs are probably a collaborative effort between AS and the brands and therefore each retailer has different models. The most obvious difference of these "made for" shoes from the exclusive line is the lack of channeled soles and rolled waist. AS for AFPOS does not have those features, which makes them a step down...
All the money inthe world wouldn't let us MTO shoes in shell colors that AE doesnt have available. You could, possibly buy AE outright though.
Here is some interesting information about AS Handgrade and relation to G&G in the second post to this old thread:http://www.styleforum.net/t/193857/gaziano-girling-vs-alfred-sargent-handgrade
 Just picked up a pair as well. I've been looking to get a snuff suede chukka, preferably unlined, but for $235, I'm not going to be too picky. 
Mahogany polish was the one AFPOS sent with my order. I think it work well. You can go with burgundy, brown or even black if you are looking to darken/patina them a little bit. I used a bit of black on the toes of mine and I like it. 
My walnut shell daltons came loose on the wingtip leaving my foot completely exposed due to the unlined construction.I took them to AE and they sent it to the factory to be fixed free of charge. They came back in a couple weeks almost looking like nothing happened. Shouldn't be a problem as long as the weather stays mild.
I am strongly considering those unlined chukkas. However, I don't have much experience with a resole on blake-stitched shoes. Does anyone have experience taking them to a local cobbler or some place more well known such as B Nelson in NYC? Is it pretty straight forward?   Thanks everyone.
