They look amazing again.

I wore them for a few hours the other day to make sure the fit didn't change.
This is from a few weeks ago.

I love that boot, wish I snagged a pair of seconds when they had them available.

New to the AE world, just got my first pair off eBay.

Being a sucker for the original Longwing style, I just had to pull the trigger.

So what's next? Probably the second American icon - a pair of Sheltons...

 

Welcome to the thread.  Those are really sweet!

 

+1 on the Sheltons.  I own both the walnut/brown and the burgundy/black and love them.  The 1 last is my favorite last.

You wear the 8.5D in the grant, so you probably would fit in these.

I am still not convinced I want to part with them.

Got a pair of dark brown BB Strands in E width....holy crap are they tight...normally I go with D in these styles and they fit snug and I get a fairly large V on the laces, however I hate shoes that slip now so I rather go snug with no slip and larger V...

 

These Strands are beautiful but are really tight and the V is huge...They are no warranty shoes so I may end up selling but they really are beautiful...may give them a few good wears in the house.

If shoes have to be made for you because they aren't in stock are they considered MTO and are therefore unreturnable?

No. Allen Edmonds typically stocks pre-made uppers on shelves. If they are being made for you, they just finish assembling. 100% returnable just to be clear.

That pesky poron...I feel you. BB is full poron or just the heel?

Seems like it runs a good way down the shoe on the BB where the Independence Jefferson seems to be more cushioned in the heel and tapers down quicker.

MTO Pebble Grain Jeffersons out in the wild for the first time today. A little summer suit and red sock action. Loving these so far.

What is on everyone's current AE want list?



For me I would have to say:

Brown Cordovan Strands (instant purchase if the right price on a used pair or seconds pops up)

The recent MTO using chili grain had me thinking of a MTO MacNeil with walnut or chili grain. Sad to hear they are currently out of stock of the grain leathers. Possibly a CXL MacNeil could fill the void.

I was wanting a grain LWB or Dalton. I might drown my sorrows with these...
