Whoa, did I miss something. These had exposed eyelets? :)

 

I was watching those as well. Good pickup! Looks like a plain Townly if you ask me.

I was watching those too! I think I'm actually going to put my Townley's up on eBay. They're not getting a lot of wear but they are awesome.

Congrats on those sweet shoes from Altman's @bl@ster!

Ha. Well be sure to set the market high. I was thinking the same thing.

Hate to "bump" my own post, but I just wanted to see if anyone else had any insight here.

 

I have not had my hands on these but if they are anything like the McAdams they are not made of the normal calf materiel.  When I saw the McAdams in store last year they were very stiff and felt cheap vs the normal line

Thanks for the heads up! I have some townleys but I admit I never go on the Shoebank unless AE is having a % off sale :embar:

Totally agree. The Lexington is similar but I don't like the proportions on the toecap and the 4 pair of eyelets kills it for me.

Not to worry, my cobbler will be switching out the eyelets post haste! smile.gif

Cross post from the MTO thread - my First Avenues in Oxblood have arrived. All standard except for the color and the independence lining and insole.

They're beautiful and they fit great. Pictures below. As a word of warning to others: these boots have a lot of room in the toe and seem to be quite long. Even at 8.5D with the independence lining, they're comfortably roomy. For those who size up on the 5-last or go wide, these might be ideal at your Brannock size.

Interesting that these are model number 1381. According to the table I compiled from various sources, that's the number that was used for the Burgundy Fairgate. Must've been a one-off.

I haven't used Alden Leather Protector since I put it on my Brown Shell Townleys. It actually made them so dull that I stopped wearing them. Took them out last night and Mac'ed them up and they look much better. My guess is that the ALP mixed with residual cream and made them dull. I should try it again on some of my shiner shell.

Cronmok firsts gone from AllenEdmonds.com?

post #52901 of 70737

Yep.  The SA said they were on closeout for the black Friday sale.

Wearing the chili Shaker Heights today. Paired them with the AE casual rib socks and they fit great. Definitely the best $127 I have spent in a long time.

^^Nice boots today gents. All this talk about the townleys made me break mine out:

I bought the navy cronmoks the other day, and I have two questions.

Looking in AE's website, they recommend "natural" edge dressing. I don't see natural on their website, but I do see neutral. Should I go for that?

They also recommend not polishing them? It seems they want me to just use leather conditioner and saddle soap? I have the cronmoks in tan, and I have always just used a neutral polish. Should I really avoid using polish on cronmoks?

Such a great boot and I wish that AE would distinguish there leathers in the write ups...I would love to see this leather used on more models...also there are other leathers they just list as brown or tan that unless you see in person you would never know what they really are.
