On and off outside on my deck and in my windows for about a month now. Mostly direct sunlight and conditioning with VSC weekly to keep they hydrated. Lots of paying attention to rotating them to try and keep the fading even.
Still alive although work has been a real bear the last 6 months. This thread has grown so much it is hard to stay up with it but I do try to at least read it. By the time I get a chance to post several people have already answered the question I was going to reply to which is great! Finally got 2 days off and am packing up now to head over to Wi. for the Upland Journal gathering and shoot over the next 3 days. I will be an hour away from the AE factory and wanted to take them up on the offer of a tour but will not have time. Hopefully next year...
I have both the brown and burgundy shell Patriots, they are the first loafers I found to fit me perfectly. I have a narrow heel and no arch on my left foot and very little left on my right. Love them, I wear the brown in the summer around the house and yard almost every day and the burgundy when going to town with causal attire.
I can't wait to see a pair of brown cordovan patriots in my size on the seconds list. I have a narrow heel and low vamp as well but have still yet to try them.
How do you find them for sizing?
I wear and 8D in the 5 last and and 8.5D or 8E in the 1 last
I had a pair of Kenwoods in an 8D that worked well too.
