Presumably using just a conditioner or lotion will be safer than something with a cleaner. So if buying AE brand, consider Leather Lotion instead of Conditioner/Cleaner.
Thanks for responding. Unsurprisingly, 7605 is the number for Black Burnished Calf.
Still no concrete evidence of a Cappuccino/Truffle Jefferson other than that one photo that looks more like Brown.
Those are certainly the only model numbers I found below:Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I couldn't help but notice a bunch of shell cordovan models missing from the AAAC thread, so I decided to amend it with models from allenedmonds.com, shoebank.com, the outdated ShoeCareReference.pdf, various searches, and my own personal collection:
Please let me know anything I missed. Note that MTOs will often not have their own numbers, and instead reuse an existing one; my Burgundy Shell Kenilworths say 8005, which actually corresponds to Black Custom Calf.
If you have a Jefferson, I'd love to know it's code and whether you think it's Brown or Cappuccino/Truffle. Old seconds lists called 7666 "Brown Cordovan Jefferson", but I also see Jeffersons listed in a Cappuccino promo picture.
If you happen to own a lighter version of one that comes in multiple shades of brown (Dundee, Jefferson?, Park Avenue, Patriot, Strand), check to see whether maybe you got a Cappuccino/Truffle (synonymous) or Walnut one that was mislabeled as Brown and let us know.
Good evening all, does anybody know if the " Brooks Brothers Double-Stitch Split-Toe Bluchers" is made by Allen Edmonds (Item #MH00027). It's on sale for 184 with the original price being the usual 368 for most BB by AE shoes; the item also has the same tap sole and is made in the USA. Is there an AE equivalent?
Just wondering for sizing purposes; not sure if the shoe is for me, but with free shipping for amex cardholders (shoprunner), I may just give it a try.
