I like the shoe quite a bit and own a pair of Castine driving shoes that are similar, but I wouldn't really consider it business casual, more of a casual option because of the driving shoe sole. I would be interested to hear how you like that particular sole, as I haven't tried on anything with sole before. Enjoy the new shoes!post #45350 of 707376/12/14 at 7:23pmQuote:Originally Posted by chris45
ya I was wondering on sizing too, esp since I'll probably wear them without socks.. and still leaning toward Brown or Burgundy -- probably will get Burgundy since they have a pair with the Vtread sole...
I'm sized as 8.5D on 5 last but sized down to 8D on the MacNeil's (7 last) and have 8.5D on my Long Branches (1 last) .. so any suggestions for the Patriot (last 6??)
someone help me with sizing before they are all gone! =]post #45351 of 707376/12/14 at 7:30pmQuote:
The version in tan saddle looks nice, but Id only wear them to work in a really casual environment though. I can't see those outsoles lasting for a long time if worn on any other surface apart from carpet. As for being a driving shoe, I find it odd that AE didnt design the outsole to wrap all the way back up to the to the upper part of the heel where the foxing is. Since it doesnt have any significant heel, I can imagine the foxing on the right shoe will be in contact with the cars floor, at least with my driving style as I use my right heel as the pivot point for my foot as it pushes/releases the accelerator pedal.post #45352 of 707376/12/14 at 7:30pmI'm trying to decide between buying brown shell Patriots or buying a bourbon Park Ave and a black Park Ave. I just sold off my black and dark brown Fifth Aves to replace with the aforementioned Park Aves, but I feel like I could get those at a later seconds sale or Nordstrom's anniversary sale in July easily, whereas there's no guarantee that the shell Patriots will be available the next time shell drops to $399. Am I right in thinking I should go with the Patriots?post #45353 of 707376/12/14 at 7:35pmQuote:Originally Posted by watchidiot

Yeah, like jeans and polo casual. I just don't want to be the guy who wears sneakers (some even do). I have a pair of Strands and McAllisters for when I want to put on some slacks and a dressier shirt.post #45354 of 707376/12/14 at 7:39pm
PSA, after much deliberation and regret, Im letting go of my 8.5D Brown Shell Cordovan Jeffersons for USD545 + shipping. I find that the vgap is to wide for my liking and rather than wait for my feet to sink into the cork, might as well let someone else with a better fit enjoy the shoes for USD545. These are firsts and I have only worn them for fitting and walked around a carpeted room 2-3 times. Complete with box and bags.
FYI, I live in Asia so shipping to US might be steep (probably around 50USD) - but thats still cheaper than the current price for these bad boys.post #45355 of 707376/12/14 at 8:24pmQuote:Originally Posted by lachyzee
1. From Kenard at AE Charleston:
Unfortunately, the 20% coupon does NOT apply to discounted shoes (i.e. the actual fac 2nd price is $499, it’s being promoted @ $399. But, it could be applied to a 1st quality Strand (Reg: $365 – Sale w/ coupon: $292). You’ll get a bourbon or brown first quality Strand for almost the price of a reg fac 2nd : $289
2. I received one on 16 Mar. Received another on 2 Jun. Both valid for about a month. Perhaps it depends which outlet you nominated for.
Perhaps. I registered for Jeffersonville. Maybe I'll re-sign up. Thanks for the info!post #45356 of 707376/13/14 at 3:14ampost #45357 of 707376/13/14 at 5:14ampost #45358 of 707376/13/14 at 5:26ampost #45359 of 707376/13/14 at 5:35amQuote:Originally Posted by Burzan
Felt like today was the day to finally try out the application of Angelus Acrylic Finisher #600 on my burgundy cordovan Leeds. Let me say that the process was very easy to do and so far I feel like they replicate the "wet look" of Alden very well. I am curious to see if they are easy to maintain with just the Mac Method from here on.
I initially conditioned them yesterday with VSC as I have been putting them in the sun to fade them a bit so they were a little dry. These pics are pre application of the finisher.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Once they were buffed and dry today I used a clean t-shirt and started the application on the left shoe, I did one coat, then went over with a second shortly after. Left shoe in finished in these pictures.
Went on to do two coats on the right shoe and then went back for a third coat on both. Here is the finished shoes from a few minutes ago, they are still drying and tacky. I am not sure yet how long it will take for them both to dry. Once they do I with hit them with a quick brushing and buffing to see the results along with maybe a thin layer of paste wax.

Man, these look great. I've got a couple of candidates that I'm thinking of trying this out on. Thanks for posting the blow-by-blow instructions.post #45360 of 707376/13/14 at 5:44am
