I had AE Sheltons because I love the black/burg. saddle style. These are $300 CG shoes and nicely made, but I couldn't get past how they wrinkle and crease - the wrinkles are tinier and pointier as has been mentioned, plus the phony sameness of the leather, even after a year of weekly wears. I liked the style and fit of them, but in the end, the CG-ness just got to me and I sold them. I won't buy CG, good or bad, again.
