I bought the Jeffersons and apparently were the last ones on the company. 350 for them, thats not bad at all. They are far more comfortable than any other pair of shoes that I own. I got them on brown. Again, amazing pair of shoes.

Agreed. 350 for jefferson firsts is a bargain.

I got mine for 183$ biggrin.gif

I too am wearing mine, and these are atop my list of favorite AEs. Mine appear a bit darker because of a cleaning issue a couple years back, but I like the darker color. Kind of looks like a chili color.... For sure my favorite non-shell AEs.

Just a PSA....I am traveling in Dallas and there were dozens of pairs of AEs at the Nordstrom Rack in Southlake. I picked up a pair of Park Aves for $149, but most are $170-$199. I saw Cliftons, Larchmonts, Players, a suede Strand, Boardwalks, etc.....

I was only looking at 10.5 and 11, and there were easily 15-20 pairs

No you're just showing off.

I have a pair of Strands in 8.5 B that fit me perfectly. I'm looking to get a pair of Carlyle, but they don't carry that size.

 

I'm not too familiar with the different lasts. If I'm an 8.5 B in the 5 last, would a 9 B or a 8.5 D be closer to my size in the 8 last?

post #51007 of 70737
9B. And those might be too wide.

Folks, have a quick question:

 

Which AE polish/cream do you recommend for a pair of PA's in Dark Brown Burnished Calf? I want to preserve the original color with a subtle shine.

 

I'm thinking of picking up the Dark Brown Shoe Cream ($8 on AE's website):

Thanks in advance.

Should I go Neutral or is the Dark Brown ok for the PA's?

I got netural with the caranuba wax and colors for the others. the polish will show at the flex points if its netural.

I'm looking to get some AE to wear with dark jeans and with slacks / sport coats. Which model is recommended?

I like the Madison Ave but I'm worried it may be a bit too much for dark jeans and a sport coat.

Tons of options for this use. What's your pleasure: loafers, lace-ups, or boots?

Hey guys,

 

Were AE park ave's ever made with corrected grain leather?

 

I picked up a pair in Merlot and the leather is incredibly smooth, nothing like I have seen with my other pairs of AE. I know these are an older pair, just not sure how old.
