Whoa. Was looking through the Shoebank and saw these in the 11-1/2 D section. Black Eagle County boots for $129 from the Port Washington store.

 

I have no need of a black boot whatsoever, or else I'd be all over it. Heck, I'm still tempted at that price point. Wonder what's wrong with it that it's discounted so steeply.

 

Take a gander:

Thanks- I didn't know if I was being overly sensitive to the issue, or should just polish over it and go on with life- appreciate the input

@ Waters, yea my Odenwald had the same issue.

I just used a pair of pliers to crimp the eyelet flush.

I am sure AE would take care of this in short order for you. It just took me a second with a pair of pliers vs sending back etc.

Hope this helps.

Pretty sure black EC is a closeout from last winter.  They did not bring that color back. I actually got my Tan pair about a year ago for $129 when they originally went closeout and I could not tell what the flaw was.

 

Keep in mind the 2 last runs narrow so I would go up a width in the EC, I have had to stretch mine a bit to be more comfortable.

Here's what the soles of my Kiowas look like and I have worn them with a brown tweed suit.......

Not sure if anyone posted about the Oak Streets...I just spotted them on the site...I like the first one but the second one really needs a Brown Dainite sole..AE HAS to start carrying that.

Those look pretty good. Incidentaly, I emailed B. Nelson about brown Dainite and he's got it; I'll be using his services when a pair of minilug boots I have becomes worn down.

$271. I had them ordered into the store during the last sale, and they honored the sale price when I could finally pick them up.

Feeling Austere today.



On wet (but not raining) days like today, I'm rather glad that they mixed up the specs and have me dainite instead of v-tread...

Also, how difficult a tailoring job is it to get pant leg openings slimmed down? I got these pants for pretty cheap, but the flare is a little too much for my tastes.

I really like the natural colored one, but I wonder if they're going to have the same captoe creasing problem that the Lexington supposedly suffers from. I mean, other than the soles, they're the same shoe.

They *are* the Lexington in another leather. The title of the webpage wasn't even updated correctly, last I checked.

Yet the shoebank still has them for $299, or $309 for stone suede. :crackup:  Stone suede, by the way... I wasn't expecting it, but I fell in love when I saw it in person.

They are Margom lug soles (not Dainite), so maybe you don't need that new phone after all :).

 

I think these shoes look perfectly appropriate with wool trousers, a sport-coat, and a tie. Although I frequently wear this kind of outfit, I don't often wear a suit. I'm not sure how formal the workplace would have to be to make Kiowas too casual; judging by the 'comfort dress shoes' that 90% of men wear, there are not very many of them.

Looks sharp from here :fonz:.

 

Not hard at all to get your pants slimmed. Just measure the leg opening of one of the pants that you like; measure them flat, and tell the tailor.  They will open the inside or outside seam (cant remember) and bring together/cut excess fabric. Cant remember if they start around the knees or hips. They have charged me ~$15.
