I would wager that outside of this forum 99% of the population would think they were the same shoe

I agree with your 99% of the population comment. I had my Ravello LWBs with dark edges, Ravello LWBs with antique edges, and my Ravello LWBs with Brass Eyelets all at one time once and I had a tough time explaining the "important" differences between them to them. :-)

Since my coworkers can't tell a dundee from an alden chukka, I have stopped bothering about any pair of my shoes being substantially different from others.

I'd really love to get my hands on some walnut shell. Until then this is the closest I can get to it. Wearing my walnut strands today

Not spoilering because those are just killer. I wish we could get some hint of an alternate shell coming in the somewhat near future.

Also are those shots from new? Looks like they have no rolls of any sorts. Mine have quite a few.

Thanks you guys. They have about 10 wears on them. For some reason these Chukkas clean up super easy.

Tried to do a search for this and didn't see any commentary (although I found a lot of threads about vacation spots): does anyone have experience with the AE St. Thomas V.I. bit loafer (pictured below)?

I'm in the market for a biz casual slip on and I like the looks of this one, and shoebank has it at a good price. On the AE website, however, it only has 4 reviews, but they're all negative. Any first hand experience here?

Watch, those look fantastic. The classic AE shoe right there. I must ask, is it the angle or do you have a smaller shoe size?

AMProf, no experience myself with them, but they look pretty clean. Are they part of the Italian Collection?

Mike those are unreal, I am actually happy I am not your size or I would be broke buying up all your walnut and whiskey stuff you have for sale.

 

 

 

I wonder if I can get my sun faded burgundy Leeds to a similar color..... Those would be a goal color for me to try and get them to.

Just finished polishing up my two pairs from the AE line, and I'm impressed with how well they are wearing over time. I picked up a pair of discontinued black New Haven and chili Provo, treated them with the AE waterproofing spray, and wore them through the winter months.







I'm pretty surprised by the lack of creases given how much I've worn them.

Also looking forward to a bit of shell shoe care at some point this weekend.



The Strands on the right are in dire need of some lovin'.

Have a great weekend, gentlemen. smile.gif
