I bought a pair of AE chili Woodstock a week ago at USD149 

It was about 30% off at factory second price.

I have been blaming myself for getting a pair of Black Park Avenue.

How do you all compare Allen Edmonds to Meermin/Herring?

These bands are at similar price. Which one has better quality?

I would love to give you a comparison, but Pepe at Meermin has told me that my feet are much too wide for any of their lasts.

That, along with fantastic customer service, and the availability of retail and outlet stores gives AE the win for me personally.

Though I WILL say that I do find pictures of Meermin shoes to be generally more attractive and pleasing to the eye than AE's classicly clunky American Midwestern aesthetic. But what good is that if I can't wear them?

Both are comparable in quality. Leather wise, both are okay, definitely not supple like those in the Indy line or the Carmina line. The biggest difference from my experience:

Meermin: 270 GY welt, channeled stitching, sleeker last options

AE: 360 GY welt


Customer Service: AE hands down
Accessibility (USA): AE hands down

How wide are your feet?

3E in some AE lasts like 5 (some models a little snug), 3, and 1. Others like 2, 4 and 800 are still too tight. I wear 4E in sneakers like New Balance and Saucany.

I need some help guys, a friend of mine offered to purchase AE's for me to return a favor. I'm not quite sure what to get. I already have a pair of walnuts strands

And Dalton's as well as Merlot Cliftons. What would you suggest? I wear a suit to work every day for the most part or a variation of a sports coat with a tie. I'm not a fan of black shoes so that is out.

How about a loafer of some sort?

Dark brown is needed. Strand/McAllister/Park Avenue. Dark Brown anything pretty much will do.

Yes, if you're going for versatility. Dark brown burnished or dark chocolate. Bourbon is awfully close to walnut, which you have covered. How dark is your TBNY?

If you wear coat and tie a lot, and given what you already have, brown Fifth Avenues or wingtips.
