I was at the camp the summer of 98. I graduated High School in 1999. I played in one of the jazz groups when I was there and then I played drums in the Big Band at IAA the entire year that I was there.

I still have my red sweater in storage somewhere.

Seems this thread has been hacked by a musician alumni Facebook group?

I was also wondering if anyone used Saphir products on their AE walnut shoes with also successful, original-color-retaining, results. 

 

Finally, what edge dressing do people use on their walnuts? I thought I saw AE having black and a few browns, but no specific walnut edge dressing. 

 

Thank you!

I've used AE walnut polish on my Strands and it looks great but also make them look quite orange comparing to the original color.  I've been using neutral polish in conjunction with the walnut and been happy with the result.

 

I'm sure many from this thread uses Saphir products on all their shoes including AE as Saphir products are considered superior by many.  They do not make "walnut" edge dressing, the recommended edge dressing is chili.  I've been using it for all my AE walnut shoes.  Don't make my mistake buying the big size, the travel size has the better applicator and should last you a long time

The Shoe Care part of the A-E website suggests using Chili Edge Dressing on Walnut shoes.  I use the Chili Edge Dressing on my Walnut shoes.  In some cases, the A-E Walnut polish makes some Walnut shoes less tan and more orange.  I use Meltonian Saddle (#141) shoe cream and Kiwi Tan shoe polish on my Walnut shoes, but when the tin of Kiwi Tan is used up I am probably going to buy a tin of Lincoln Tan shoe polish instead.

I am going through this now.  Down 15 lbs to where I'm comfortable weight-wise.  I am using insoles .as I transition from 12D to 11.5C  Memo to AE: More C widths please!

If you hate to be a jerk then the best thing to do would be to ignore the post you don't like or simply don't say anything at all. Please take the time and hover your mouse over my name and click on "block member" to ignore all of my post.

What's everyone's take on AE's recrafting services? As much as I love my AEs, I'm not sure if I see a financial incentive of recrafting second-quality calf shoes which can be purchased for around $150 when a standard recraft costs $125. I totally understand when wearers recraft cordovans since they're north of $500  or even first-quality at around $300, but I just don't see the benefits of repairing seconds when I can buy a brand new second quality shoe for a little more than a couple of beers at a bar.

Ha! Fair enough. My apologies for the derailment.

Back on topic, guy in front of me on the plane is wearing black Rutledges to compliment my walnut ones. I asked him what brand of shoes they were (as if I didn't know), and he said "um Allen Edwards, or something like that."

I asked the same questions a few weeks back but did not get any responses.  Like you said, the numbers don't make sense, you can get seconds with almost or slightly more than the amount of recrafting if you are patient.  I'm guessing maybe it's sentimental or if the shoes fit like a glove and there is no point of getting the same ones (but newer) if you are very happy with the ones you have (even though they are seconds)

Thanks. Yeah, I noticed those pictures on the other thread after I'd already posted -- they did look nice. And after seeing the pictures of the Rothsays in Dublin Cognac a few pages back on this thread, I might try getting the Promontory Points in the same.
