The Dublin leathers are what are known as "pull up" leathers. When they are creased or folded, the oils and waxes in the leather move around within the layer of the material and account for the variation in color. 

 

I believe if you take your thumb and apply some firm pressure to the wrinkles and massage them, it will revert back to the original look... temporarily of course.

Can anyone help compare the 5-65 last and 7 last please in terms of fit? AE online chat recommended same width, but to size up .5 because the 5 last is shorter than the 5-65 last. Is this the consensus here? Thank you!

The 7 last is a little shorter than the 5 last and has a more sharply tapered toe box. Some size up for the 7, but that doesn't mean you will have to. I wear a 10.5 3E in both lasts. You can always exchange if it doesn't fit right.

I don't have to walk much outside, so these are ok for now. But something with better traction and suit-worthy will definitely be much better..

Brave man! Do you get water welts from snowflakes?

 

I do not get bad welts at all and I have a brush in my office so I hit them right away when I get in out of the snow(also I recently Cordovan Creamed them)...that being said I have resigned myself to not baby this pair for a few reasons..I do love these boots so I do not want to come off like a big whiny baby...

 

The shell on this pair for whatever reason is different...it is rough, scratches easy..really easy compared to my other shell and just feels different...On top of that the boot fits me well though much closer to the Long Branch than the Dalton which means medium weight boot socks for ideal fit. For some reason the shape with the captoe looks very odd to me on my foot...size 13 ...looking straight down it looks like the old Duke football on my feet and there is something about the eyelet piece that extends too far down or forward that again on my foot just looks a little odd to me.

 

So with all of that being said despite clearly coming off like a big whiny baby...hey at 270 pounds being a big baby is what I am...lol I would buy these again in a second...have decided that I am wearing these regardless of weather especially being a casual dressing fellow that I am. Actually looking forward to really breaking them in even more.

 

Sorry for the long answer...

For thoroughness, the Randolph has foxing on the back (a circular shaped stitch pattern on the back), where as the Patriot has just a strip covering the center seam.

This answer may have missed the initial question's intent, but thank you for this explanation!

Hmm...so did anyone else notice they changed the name of the Jomoc to Jodox? Wonder what the deal was behind that.

That is interesting since the Jodox was in the AE 2012 Supplemental Catalog with item numbers 6817 (black) and 6847 (brown). On the AE website now, the numbers are 4611 (black) and 4612 (tan saddle).

I know these are RL Polo branded boots, but does anyone think they might possibly be made by AE?

$149 full retail and it being an imported good makes me say no.
