There are a bunch of negative reviews on the AE site saying the toebox is too narrow, and some saying that it has been redesigned from the past. I'm wondering if this just people who don't fit the 8-last well, or if there really is an issue.post #48289 of 707378/23/14 at 6:16pmQuote:Originally Posted by kmdsimpson

It fits similar to the 5 last. It's a bit more narrow, but I take the same size. Some people prefer to go up one in widthpost #48290 of 707378/23/14 at 6:24pmI ordered Long Branch boots late last winter but never really got a chance to wear them. I went back and forth today with whether they should stay or if I should sell them, especially since I've added a few Alden boots into the mix recently. For now at least they are going to stay since they are so comfortable and so much lighter weight than my Alden Indy's in Kudu with a full lug sole.
Treated them to some Obenauf's Heavy Duty LP. They feel completely moisturized now and I hope the color stays this dark. May need another coating just to be sure. Here's some before and after shots with and without flash:post #48291 of 707378/23/14 at 6:27pmQuote:Originally Posted by Slickninjas
hey guys, I've been reading so many pages want to ask for opinions. I had my first pair of Allen Edmonds for a year now. Trying not to wear out the Park Ave. so I am looking for a second pair of blacks. I am deciding between Vernon, Fifth Ave and the Kenilworth. I like the Vernon of the minimalist style but none of my friends picked it out of the three. I am business casual.
Any suggestions or other style I should consider?
You might look at the Strand.post #48292 of 707378/23/14 at 6:53pmpost #48293 of 707378/23/14 at 8:55pmHey gents. I already have the Mora 2.0 in bourbon. Love it, probably my favorite shoe across all brands in my closet. I'm debating whether I should pick up the brown color. Does anyone have both? There's already a limited number of looks I can do with the double monks (jeans and chinos, but I think a bit out of place with dress pants*), wondering if 2 somewhat similar colors makes sense...
*of course maybe I feel this way because my pair is bourbon- will the brown complement a more formal look?post #48294 of 707378/23/14 at 10:09pmThe monk/double monk is a versatile shoe, but more casual and better paired with less formal wear. If the goal us something for a suit, I'd be more inclined to pick up a park, fifth or something along those lines. You might look at brogues, they can more easily make the translation between a suit and business casual... That being said, if you love them and will wear them - no harm in having multiple colors in the same line. Certainly aids in rotation. I put the monk above the penny loafer, a great traveler...post #48295 of 707378/24/14 at 6:40amQuote:
Thanks for mentioning this, SkySaw. I didn't know there were businesses like this out there. I spend a couple weeks every Christmas within a short drive of Detroit, so could definitely make use of this.post #48296 of 707378/24/14 at 7:57amIt seems like a good service, and it is located within a couple of blocks from the border. They provide space and materials for you to open your package, prepare and process returns, and dispose of packaging. Until AE opens a retail presence in Canada or provides affordable shipping options, this will be the way I buy my shoes.post #48297 of 707378/24/14 at 7:59amHi, I just received a pair of PA in brown and a pair of Strands in walnut. The PA:s are flawless, I feel I will get a lot of use out of these.
The Strands look like they've been clumsily colored. The toe on the left shoe is darker than the right one. Is there anything I can do to even it out? Is this a permanent color or a superficial layer that can be removed or changed? I would prefer to lighten the dark one, but if that's not possible I'd like to darken the right shoe. I haven't owned shoes like these before and I'm hesitant to experimenting on them. Returning isn't an option (bought them from Nordstrom, I'm in Sweden now).
I got a pair of Strands in bourbon first, but returned them. To my eyes AE makes a better walnut, and an even better dark brown.post #48298 of 707378/24/14 at 8:13amQuote:
I live in Windsor and use a similar service (kinek) and I love it. I cant even tell you how much money ive saved by avoiding Canadian shipping + duty/tax.post #48299 of 707378/24/14 at 8:17am
Maybe I'm a touch slow and someone else has already commented on it but has anyone else noticed that AE has brought back the Walnut MacNeil? I just came across it on the shoebank and was wondering why it wasnt marked to clearance prices. Then I looked at the regular site and noticed that they had brought it back.post #48300 of 707378/24/14 at 8:30amQuote:
Last year before Christmas I bought a pair of black PA from the BB sale for a younger guy that I work with. He along with most everyone else his age around me wear those ugly square toed clown shoes and he had talked to me for a long time about my AE's asking questions. People DO notice your shoes... Since then he has told me several times how he now hates his square toed shoes. Couple of weeks ago he said he might be wearing them too much as the "wood" was showing through and turning brown and asked if he should he send them in for recrafting. I told him no hang on he has a long time yet for that and the next day brought in some edge dressing and AE cleaner conditioner and gave a lesson in shoe care. It was an eye opener to me that there is a whole generation out there that doesn't know how to take care of real shoes.
