My haul from the 2nds sale are a paid a black Fifth Street boots and a pair for saddle brown Vernons. I think I'm going to send back the Fifth Street boots -- I just don't really like them that much.
The Vernons, on the other hand, look better than I expected and I'm aiming to keep. I do have to decided whether I want to keep the 10E, or try and exchange for 10D -- I'm "E" in all the other AE shoes I have and them feel great right now, but the laces close up completely so I'm worried that they'll loosen up too much over time. On the other hand, if they fit well now, what would make them stretch?
The Vernons (2nd from left) fill a nice gap in my brown spectrum -- Tan RL Sandersons, the saddle brown Venons, brown Meermin MTO boots, and dark brown Carmina brouged captoes.
And a family portrait of my AE-made shoes.
