I received my custom made Park Avenues today and the left shoe has anl area on the inner side where there are noticeable wrinkles.

I understand custom ordered shoes are not refundable but what kind of options do they offer in this situation?

My latest AE acquisition - and it's not shoes. I decided to try some of their new socks. They look and feel great. I'm looking forward to trying them out.

I see what you're talking about, but how do they look when they're on your feet? I personally would be satisfied with those, and that is saying A LOT coming from me. If you don't know what I'm referencing, go back a few pages and see my concerns about my Daltons. However, if you're unsatisfied with the shoes, AE will DEFINITELY take care of you, just contact them about your concern.

Very nice! I've actually got quite a few socks from Allen Edmonds and I love every single one of them. The funny thing is that I was telling my SA about this thread, and when I called him today regarding an order, he said he checked out the site. He then went on to say he actually recognized which posts were mine by the socks/shoe combos hehe.

I wore mine today as well, really enjoyed them. $13/pair on RDA isn't terrible but my standards are low as my socks are old and worn.

Those are absolutely killer! Sadly I let go of my pair this week, I just have too many shoes that require a shoe expert to tell the differences between them. Enjoy them in the best of health sir!

My Bob's Chili Strand seconds are arriving tomorrow.  I will post pics.

 




Did you get some of the "dark chili burnished" Strands from Shoebank? I remember seeing those at $219 and almost popped ($249 now), but I wasn't sure what they'd look like. No photo up on their site, just saw the "image coming soon" inventory at the bottom of the list.

I ended up getting a $325 burgundy shell Macneil instead. The Nordstrom chili Strand photo looks awesome...may need to rethink.

The burgundy shell Macneils are truly classics (style and color) and will probably long outlast the chili Strand in both style and life of shoe.  That said, I'm also being pulled by this new chili color on the McGregor.

You follow me as well. Cross-posting is a road to ruin.

Dark chili burnished (aka Bob's Chili) Strand seconds have arrived . . . what follows are the long-awaited color comparison shots.  I really wish I were a better photographer but hopefully these will help someone anyway.

 

 

l-r:  "traditional" chili, Bob's Chili, chili grain

 

 

l-r:  merlot calf, Bob's Chili, burgundy shell

 

 

l-r:  Bob's Chili, bourbon

 

IRL, I would say Bob's Chili is closest to chili grain.

post #50382 of 70737
Thank you for the comparison shots. Bob's Chili looks like a great color. Never cared for the original chili but I like the new color
post #50383 of 70737

Bob's Chili Strands will soon be, at worst, the second most popular color for that design.

Thank you for posting those comparison pics icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif. I've been on the fence on Bob's Chili, still am...LoL. I'm going to head over to the AE store tomorrow to hopefully catch a glimpse in person. I'm itching to pull the trigger on some McAllister's.

I'm really trying with AE, but after a year... yes a year, I just cannot find a single shoe that they offer with a proper fit. I still cannot understand why just about every style worth having is made on the #5 last, or rather, why the #5 last is so unbelievably inconsistent. Every single shoe fits different. I have had multiple Park Aves, Strands, McAllister's, et al, in my possession and I can say that no one size/fitting fits the same. And on top of size inconsistencies are the quality inconsistencies (mismatched shoe heights, longer heels on only one shoe, excess wrinkles and puckering in the leather, and the dreaded toe cap crease which seems to form on every shoe in every size that I've tried).

I measure a 9.5E on a brannock, and I know that a brannock is sized for a brannock, but this should be a good starting point none-the-less. I know that there are so many variables that are taken into account when sizing for shoes but why is a size 8 (3 half sizes down from my measured size) the perfect length in a #5 lasted shoe, but a EEE in that size is too narrow? The 8.5EEE has too much volume, and the 8.5EE doesn't have enough and is too tight from ball to heel. I've tried different lasts, and an 8.5E is too big in a 333 (Harrison), the Larchmont is too tight in 8EEE as well as 8.5EEE. 8.5EEE is too big in the Jefferson, 8EEE is too small in the Jefferson, 10D was too narrow in the Big Surrs. Am I the only one having this much of a problem with AE and their products? I really don't consider my foot shape or size to be that far from the norm.
