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.
I concur with this. Is 9 - 9..5 your Brannock measured size?Richard is terrific. He will give you good advice for sure.
Yes. Except no idea how it fits. They should have brought it to the trunk show.
