Gorgeous! I hope to own a pair someday.
Same here. Edward added me to his list and I get notified of sales at the factory outlet. I'm also on the general AE email list and get notified of sales at the AE stores (not 2nds).
You could probably email Edward at the Freeport store and ask him to add you to the list:
Most recently was at an AE trunk show at one of the nicer men's clothing stores in Toronto. They probably had 30 pairs on display, and I noticed this in a few pairs. I chose to bite my tongue and not say anything to the otherwise charming and helpful AE sales rep. It gave me pause in ordering a pair of tan Franciscans, because I know if my pair arrived like that they'd be going right back.
OUTSTANDING!! Great job and choice.
Yeah if you like to wear a woman's boot and excuse me but that leather is shell on his chukka. Give me more cowbell welt. And shell:
And my Alden Ravello shell chukkas are identical concerning the welt. Winston I will update you on my experience of the Barrie last as soon as I can.
Shakedown cruise of black shell PA today on road trip to a small distant regional hospital and clinic:
Almost 40 degrees and snow is melting. Wind chill is still in the 20's but we are getting there. Almost forgot how great it is to be in a rural area and have everyone look you in the eye, smile and say hi. Been a long day but when I get time will post Paul's response to my pictures of bowing on AAAC and also my experience and others that have PM'd me here and elsewhere over the last couple of years.
Now, let me start off by saying that I've worn my fair share of shoes that lean far more to the European aesthetic (I spent a good set of years out there). As far as the wholecuts, I do own a couple pairs, and my first pair was purchased around the age of 17.
I think the point is that he's wearing what seems to be chinos, and not slim extremely thin ones. Given that, as opposed to a sleeker, more tailored wardrobe, I think the boots he posted are a great fit. The lines and materials of the shoe seem to match with his personal style better than the ones you posted. If he had posted slimmer pants, I might have supported your recommendation. Style is personal, and these seem to fit him. I think by saying "you want people to..." you're assuming he wants a certain reaction, and perhaps he seeks another. I think those flow with his apparent wardrobe (from what I can gather).
