Wowza, I kinda want a navy neumok!

I just picked up new to me Brown PA's! Though I suspect they're chilli or merlot. Fine by me!

Why? Have you worn them already? If you have and they fit then...

Wearing my Eagle County boots today, recently added Alden flat waxed laces and I think they look great.

I may have to pick up some neumoks or franciscans for that price. How do the francisan's fit compared to the 5 last?

I'm crushing on the black - too bad it's not part of the sale . . . HOWEVER my latest list does show a few pairs of Vernon seconds floating around out there.  Perhaps a worthy substitute!  :slayer:

I'm fortunate to be in Vancouver and live in the 'burbs only 20 min from the US border. I have most of my AE, Amazon and eBay orders shipped to a logistics place just across the line, and pick up there. J

Where, oh where did you get these, my friend? A must have in my arsenal.

 

J. Crew Factory Store at the Gonzales outlets.  It's my go-to source for my most attention-getting socks!  Just checked the website and I don't see them there . . . but maybe a phone call would turn some up.  Good luck!

I had the same thought.  OTOH, I only paid $248 for my BB Strand 1sts (supposed to arrive tomorrow), so for me the $50 might not be enough to justify an exchange.

Hmm, Gonzales is only 20 minutes away. Might have to check that store out sometime.

Speaking of suede Strands, Macy's is honoring 25% off through January 26th with code JANMEN and I read they work on AEs. Styles they carry include the Dalton, Park Avenue, and Strand; including the discontinued Brogue Suede Strand. Just keep in mind that the Brogue Suede has a Dainite sole, not the standard single oak leather sole they advertise.

 

I have these shoes as well and love them.  Curious - how in the world did you get them for $39?

I've read good things about Feibings Deglazer, Renomat, even straight up acetone (though very harsh). I am thinking about a mix of acetone & Feibings Deglazer (to give it some punch), because I want to get down to raw unfinished leather, and remove the color (bleach will be in the mix after stripping finish to whiteout the skin). From there, recondition (based on how harsh the strip was and dry the leather is) and the rest is all up to me.  :smarmy:

 

Gotta learn how to cross-post before I get kicked off the AE thread!!!!

That sounds bold.

Best of luck.

Have you considered buying a used pair of something (from eBay) you're willing to destroy to practice on?

That has helped me immensely in improving my finishing techniques (I still have much to learn).

He didn't actually get them fo $39, I wish he never said that so we could avoid this question all the time. It was a unique combination of him having store credit because of a return, a coupon he got when he recrafted his shoes (which everyone gets), a sale, and possibly something else. All those things actually cost money which isn't factored into the $39.

So yeah, it's not a $39 pair of shoes.

I swapped out my $#!+kickers for AE, Santoni, Magnanni and others, but held on to a couple carcasses for JUST THIS OCCASION... Thanks for the heads up, bkotsko!  I know there will be some difference in the final product based on leather quailty, techniques used, etc., so patience is the thing I will be needing the most. Very excited, though.  

 

Help me out with some feedback and a couple shots, too; i'd love to not waste time on dumb mistakes that you can help me avoid!!! PM me with stuff if you have time - I will be forever grateful. (in chronological order...) :worship2:...:cheers:... :stirpot:...:bounce2:

 

Wanna go from here:

...to here:

...to here:

I recently saw a wholecut AE, hand painted/dyed with mottling and brush strokes that looked exactly like wood, that I would like to recreate.  Easily the most beautifully finished AE shoe I've ever seen.
