They offer the Player's Shoe, which is a) out of production and b) on the narrow 2 last. But it pops up periodically on Shoebank.com as seconds/closeout and there is also a version for Ralph Lauren.You can also custom make the MacNeil in suede.
I don't disagree with you there. But AE has deemed these seconds, so let's assume they are. Why did they get sent out to the customer? That's my issue.
I really don't get this with AE. Understandable that mistakes are made, and shoes identified as seconds are sent to the outlets. But to have a first quality MTO sent to the customer this way? Who is looking at the shoes when they are finished? is there anyone at the factory that inspects, or are workers so cynical that they just throw any old shoe into a box? This is the lack of quality control that really annoys.Glad you got a good deal on these, though. Certainly...
Chili is still at $127 on the Shoebank website if they have your size.. Or are they still showing the sale prices on the website and have not updated yet?
Yeah, that First Avenue might have some potential. Need to see it in person. Hopefully they are planning something longer term with it.
Thanks for the input. They are $187 for seconds right now. Very tempting.
Totally agree on the EC. It is definitely their best dress boot to my eye - even though they initially made it up as a country boot. These MTOs have all been spectacular. If only it was on a different last than the 2....That is disappointing for a first. Glad you're sending them back. They waste so much shell with their poor QC sometimes.
Thoughts on the Odenwald? Anyone seen them in person and anyone know how they fit. i find myself drawn to the black version.
Either Alfred Sargent or C&J, but I'll go with Fred G.'s knowledge.General rule of thumb: Retail price $598 - 600+ will be AS or C&J. Retail price low $400s is going to be Loake. For the made-in-England shoes, of course.
Almost certainly Loake, based on the retail price point.
