To each, their own. The only thing I am interested in in that picture is Elizabeth Gordon.

I liked Hannah Morgen Smith's ideas most of all.  She seems to have the best understanding of Allen Edmonds mission of all the candidates.  Her single monk strap wingtip was her best idea--make it with cognac Dublin leather and double oak soles and a split-reverse welt and a much bigger buckle and I'll buy a full retail price first quality pair.  Hannah gets my vote.

Just wanted to say that my recent experience with a pair of "flawed" Rush Streets was quickly made right by AE.  The underside of the tongue on the right shoe had extra stitching on it which pressed hard into my instep and was horribly uncomfortable (that pair also didn't qualify as seconds but the quality didn't look too hot).  They returned the shoes and sent another pair which are entirely flawless.  They fit well, look great, and are very comfortable.  Kudos to AE!  I will again be back :)

Well I finally got my first pair of "I can not believe they sent these out's" my MacNeil 5's Cognac arrived and while all of the mistakes on their own are minor...the grand total of them is just ridiculous for firsts...and what is perplexing is that being Webgems you would think they would put their best shoe makers on them to avoid seconds, returns etc so they do not have them lingering around.

 

I will post pictures later but misalined lace area, off center point on the cap...crooked stitching on the point of the cap...odd smudging, crushed welting, space between heel and sole, loose stitching, bowing in the ankle area eessh...honestly I do not believe there is any discount they could give to have me keep them.

 

The shoe looks good though sans the errors. Though this is by far the widest shoe I have on the 65 last . Question will really be if I like the Rush St more or the MacNeil 5 more...

Well was doing some cleaning on the PA's and Dundees so figured why not get a group shot. Pales in comparison to many but have only found AE since the fall. Need to replace some loafers so that might be next. As well one more boot I'm eyeing.

Those designs are atrocious.  The Sprata is exceptionally ugly.

They're the Caine model. They were on 6pm.com (Zappos' sister site) a year and a half ago.  They had patent leather only (the shoe comes in patent and in calfskin) and I bought that at first, but decided I liked calf better but couldn't find it.  Finally, it popped up on Amazon in a few limited sizes in calf (including my size) and they were something like $220 (retail at $395).  I used a 20% off coupon and got them down to just under 200 bucks.

Thanks!

Was just brushing away and thought it'd be a good idea. Actually hadn't realized I acquired that many. Didn't take long to get hooked.

The Dalton's are a 12C though. Normally a D but thought they might work. No dice though. Carpet wearing only.

They tried to pass those off as firsts?! I would be insulted to get them as seconds. They belong in the trash.
