I really like that new darker chili color!

Nice report. Sounds like this years fall lineup is a pretty big one.
post #47852 of 70737

Got the Kenwood 2nds in from the sale. Look really good.

 

 

Lucked out and got TWO Horween stamps :) Guess makes up for not having any in my Daltons.

 

 

 

 

Thinking this most likely was the issue. A large hole from the stitching. Also the side piece there is much darker, almost a black.

 

Will try hitting it with some Reno to see if can't lighten that one spot up. For the price, def. not complaining. 

 

Still deciding if the Handsewn 800 last is working for me. Reviews seemed to say it ran a bit long. Also never really had a dress Moc shoe before so might just be me getting used to it. Width is good. Have a little heel slip to start with but it feels like the Moc toe stitching hits my toe on flexing. My Moc experience is limited to Sperry's really.

A 2 eyelet plain toe derby on the 97 last is also new (same last as the Macneil), and some interesting park avenue combinations with suede quarters & one with a cross cut quarters (like the new belt Cut Bank).

I also took a pic of the new Bob Chili / Dark Chili color, in comparison to the dark brown and walnut:

That Carlyle is one good looking shoe, and the depth of color in the dark chili is really something. I might actually have to pic that up it looked so good.

Lastly, a live pic of the new shoe Paul posted, the Strandmok:

AE has to start taking better pics for their website (come on Paul), cause i could barely tell that this shoe featured AE's new bleaching effect. Not my thing, but the website is not doing this shoe justice...

 

The Mojave ( 2 eyelet chukka ) was made on the 809 last. 

 

From AE's question and answers.

 

 

Quote:
The Mojave Chukka boot is made on our new 809-Last which is closer to the 1-Last (511) from the ball of the foot to the heel; however, it is very broad and rounded in the toe area. The 5-Last (65) is the longest in length of our lasts and fits best on a long, narrow foot. By selecting shoes manufactured on the same last that most resembles the contours of one’s feet, customers will achieve a superior fit.

 

Sounds like a decent lineup. Looking forward to seeing the boots. 

 

The bleaching is way more than I would have thought. Definitely not able to tell that from the stock pictures. Looks pretty bad to me.

Intentional non-spoiler. That carlyle in Bob's Chili is phenomenal. I had no interest in this model prior to seeing it in this color, but my mind has completely changed.

I agree. Like beating a dead horse, the pictures on the AE site are just atrocious. Can someone please email the CEO about this? smile.gif

If they are an 8D and don't work for you, let me know


Edit: Just saw they are 11 1/2, what a great pick up. Congrats!

I'm pretty sure they're the same split-personality individual struggling with his shoe addiction:

 

"Buy it, you'll buy anything."

"You shut up."

"Get it in shell."

"Stop it."

Ha, yea. Might need a big tongue pad for those wink.gif

Thanks, I was excited all day yesterday to rescue them from the front porch and pondering how they'd look flaw wise, if I'd be lucky and get a Horween stamp, would they fit ok. Felt like Christmas and 10yrs old again. Still can't believe the price either.

Nope, stock model.

http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF44006_1_40000000001_-1

It says its a closeout there as well but has all the sizes listed. Plus since they're technically an MTO anyways they shouldn't have any stock on hand. So not real sure how that works.

Thanks! Best shoe deal I've gotten by far.
