Yeah, it's definitely sad that AS has changed much of their business model. Before they were very big on MTO and hand grade production. Now, they sell their stuff to J. Crew and Bloomingdale's, which both, from what I've seen haven't been very successful. I assume their collaboration has been profitable as this is the direction they want to go. AS still makes stuff for Herring but even then, their models seem to move towards a lower quality (uppers aren't as good, sole...
It's been a while but got a new addition: In comparison to my other DOaks:
You're brave... I've gone to twill suits and suede in the weather (similar in NYC).
Looking closely at the picture it's also a D width, so narrow. It appears as a sale although I'd be concerned about the longevity... but I guess if it's

I'm expecting an SP wholecut in about 6 weeks. It's been a while but finally worth risking another new last.
The old E82 definitely fit me well while the new E82 requires me to wear thicker sox. As a result, I have to stick with boots should I use the new E82. Unfortunate as the older fit was better for me.
Pebble uppers are great for situations where shoes might get wet. I have a pair of BB/AE PTB that are sleek enough to pass. I have a number of Dainite shoes too that fit the bill. If you wear black or dark brown I'm sure your shoes will be fine after a polish. I actually have a theory (probably not true) that shoes polish better after some rain... kinda like the water mixes with the wax so when you polish it sets in better. Maybe just my rationalization when I'm around...
Thanks for the feedback. I've heard it's not practical to buy but I'm curious as to what the shops are like there. I know Lobb opened a boutique there and I wonder if the new styles are actually selling.
Bringing back an old thread! I'll probably be in Moscow this fall for the first time. From what I've read, window shopping is more realistic than actually buying something?
