I'll admit that the Long Branch kicked off a boot rejuvenation for me.  I'm keeping an eye out for another pair at Shoebank.  I thought it was the perfect country boot, until I saw the shell version of the Long Branch someone just MTO'd.  I stand corrected!

As do I with my tan Banchory's - even more than my walnut Strands and brown Rutledges!

They started my love of boots, too. Actually, these were my very first pair of AEs. I now have these, Daltons, Bayfields, and a pair of Chippewas for around the homestead.

I just picked up shell Daltons and love them too.  I ultimately would like to resole with lugs, but I'll give them some wear first.  Was hoping to get shell Eagle County's with the current AE GMTO (over at the MTO thread), but the interest seems to have stalled for that boot.  Looking now to see if there is more interest in the Bayfield.  I would love to get a pair of shell Bayfields with a Long Branch-ish features!

Exactly, and I will also add a narrow heel to the above and the Dundee is a much better fit for me.

Glad to hear you like them half, I knew they would find a great home with you :nodding:

Brown flat laces though.  I save the red for Christmas.

I switch it up for Sporting Clays with 744's, Bayfields, and the Katmai

 

 

They are all great as I am sure the Long Branch is too. When I was shooting skeet wearing my Bayfields I had a guy say he had never shot with someone wearing wingtips. I started to explain to him that they were not wingtips and the difference but he just stared at me and said they were wingtips. He is a millionaire and lets me hunt pheasant on his land so I didn't argue, for that day my Bayfields were wingtips LOL. I ran the field twice back to back.

Funny!  I shot in a charity clay shoot to benefit a local high school about 3 weeks ago.  Rec'd several compliments and comments on my boots (which ARE wing tips!).  A few wanted to know where to get them.  Who knows, maybe AE got some business from that outing!

There is a good chance that it is polished cobbler leather although they haven't made the PA in it for a long time now. If the number inside the shoe is 5675 then it is the old cobbler leather number for the PA. My Sheltons are polished cobbler and they have held up well, although I don't really care for the creasing so much. But make for a good foul weather shoe.

You nailed it. Thank you. Are new burgundy PAs the same calf as the blacks and browns? Or should I be looking at cordovan if I want a reasonable quality burgundy from AE?

The burgundy and merlot that AE uses now is identical to the browns in quality.

How did your mora 2.0 break in? I just got a pair and they're a bit tight around the pinky toe; should I expect them to loosen up?

 

thanks.

Has anyone else seen these yet? Spotted today at my local AE retail... A new suede, lined chukka. They're calling it "Gobi".

I got the tan suede a few months back but they are fairly big, not sure what last they were on, not much information from the box and the shoe. These were seconds and have Red Danite sole. Here are some pictures I took before returning them since they did not fit.
