The AE ad should really be an open letter that reads:
"Hi, remember when you first discovered StyleForum and were all about AE Seconds? And then you moved onto other fancy schmancy fucking brands by asking random strangers what size you might be if you took a 9D in AE Park Avenues? And then you pretended like you never wore Allen Edmonds at all? Well it's time to return to your roots, you snobby asshole. Rediscover America by buying another pair of Wisconsin-made factory second shoes."
