My latest AE acquisition - and it's not shoes. I decided to try some of their new socks. They look and feel great. I'm looking forward to trying them out. Chris
The calender says fall but it's supposed to be 94 today. Either way the Cognac McTavish got the call today. Chris
Today is old school. These are Sanfords in the late 1990s early 2000s Bourbon. Chris
I have the natural and cognac McTavish. I wear the natural in spring / summer and the cognac in fall / winter. If I could only have one pair, it would probably be the cognac as the natural might be a bit to contrasty with navy, brown, etc.Chris
I chose the Walnut with grey today. I know some here are not big fans of this combination, but I like it. Chris
Congratulations on your new Oldenwalds! Per the AE website, they recommend Allen Edmonds Leather Lotion. I don't know if you got the football grain, leather, or chromexcel, but either way the Leather Lotion will work well.

Here is one from the "you don't see these very often" collection - the Winhall Chris
Just got my Shoe Bank Shaker Heights in Chili - very nice.

The Daltons have broken in nicely so I'm thinking these will be very comfortable. Here are a couple of...
Mine are supposed to arrive tomorrow - I hope I am as lucky as you with the small imperfections.I will post some photos when mine arrive, but I don't think they will be as good as yours - very nice photos!Chris
I would recommend the Rush Street - personally I like it better than the Strandmok because it is less distressed and has the contrast piping. I like the chromexcel leather and I prefer the black Dainite over the red Dainite (personal preference). I have the brown, but I really like the new olive Rush Streets.Also take a look at the Wilbert - it may be a bit too casual for you but I really like mine. Very comfortable.Here are my Rush Streets and WilbertsChris
