Too bad they no longer have them in snuff suede.


I picked up a new/firsts pair in Snuff Suede a year ago for $99.00.  I love them - EXTREMELY comfortable!

Do Amazon ever lower their prices to match the Nordstrom Anniversary sale? They have much better shipping rates to Aus.

I would doubt it. From what I've seen amazon pricing on AE follow no rhyme or reason. Sometimes you can find a great deal if you are lucky with timing and sizing.

Congrats on your new and first pair of shell, they have faded to a beautiful color.

There's always Meermin.

This X2, Leeds are not blobby they are normal IMO. The Leeds can be used as a direct substitute for the dress shoe worn by the US Military. I don't believe you can get any more American than that.

I just sold mine, they were beautiful and looked super comfy and light weight. Oh well, need to get the collection under control... It comes at a price...

Just ask someone from the thread to proxy them for you. Should not be a big deal for most of us, me including.

Last year I remember Amazon had a temporary price drop to match Nordstrom. Stay tuned.

Thanks all.

Arrived today! Duke and the brown suede Strand! (pardon the socks...)

 

Also, I ended up sending my Bourbon Daltons seconds back due to the mis-sized heel counter. I was told the correctly sized heel counter should be present in all seconds (and it makes sense, as it's pertinent to the fit and thus the merchantability of the product as described). I'm hoping I can get a replacement, but the shoebank is presently out of stock on Bourbon Daltons in 10.5eee... perhaps a Longbranch is in my future, instead.

You wear the same size as I do, and I was really close to buying those Dukes last week. Hope you enjoy them!

Thanks. I saw your posts about the Randolph. I chose the Duke for much the same reasons as I suspect you've found the Randolph too dressy. I'm 32 and work in tech, so I have a very casual wardrobe. I was looking for something to wear for summer that would be sufficiently casual, not "yet another brown boat shoe", and... well, fits.  I can't see myself having much occasion for a more dressy loafer.

 

I've been thinking of ordering some MTO Kenwoods in distressed leather or suede. Perhaps an MTO'ed higher-quality, US-made, recraftable version of the Sedona?

 

As for the Duke, I wore them out today for a walk through the city and they were great. I love them so far. The flaw, by the way, is a hole punched into the quarter close to the intersection of the collar and heel counter. The hole matches that used to run stitching an inch lower. There are a total of four such holes, with one on each  side of each shoe. While it's not an "ideal" flaw, I felt its unique position means it isn't generally visible and shouldn't affect the life of the shoe.

The Kenilworth is my standard for a sharp, clean, purposeful dress shoe. So much so that I got it in black and brown.

Sorry posting again the same question, but this thread moves quite fast and sometimes questions get buried quite quickly. I was just wondering if anybody owns AE shoes using grain leather apart from the ones used in the BB MacNeils? Im interested in getting an MTO in print grain leather as there are a couple of interesting colors. Just not sure what print grain leather is and what is the difference if any when compared to the grain leather used in the BB MacNeils.

Corrected grain leather which is pressed using a plate or run through rollers to provide a pattern and to hide imperfections in the leather's appearance. The main difference between this and say, full-grain leather, is that it typically has too many blemishes to be used without pressing.
