Sharp looking boot for sure, thanks for sharing the pics.

I have no idea how the 333 last is compared to the 5 last though.

 

This was helpful too, the lighting in the video gave a much better look than the shoebank picture.

 

I like the idea of something like a Fifth Street / Long Branch combo for a dress / rugged boot selection.  In the interest of finances and streamlining my collection it would be great to find one boot to fill both roles though.  The price is nice on the Portland seconds, might be worth giving them a whirl...

I also wanted to buy the portlands. But I read they fit larger so one might have to size down half or full. I live in Canada so I don't want to go through the hassle of sending them back.

If you end up buying them, please post your experience

I am trying to add a boot to the repertoire, never worn one before.

And a shot of the Westchesters today for the sake of contributing to the thread.

 

 

Great shots.  I really hope they bring this boot back someday.  Back when we had the no-upcharge MTO program, I always thought the Portland could serve as the foundation for some killer makeups, but I was too unsure about sizing to ever pull the trigger on anything.  Now I wish I had!

Some interesting new belts on the AE site. I wonder if they're indicative of new multi-material/color issues for the year. They don't really have much right now, after discontinuing the Broadstreet & Strawfut. The New Orleans seems like the only non-clearance shoe. Particularly interested in what shoe will go with the "Xerxes Ave" belt.

 

Additionally, they finally make a "Bob's Chili" Manistee. I'll need to go see it in person and see if it matches my "Chili" McAllisters (Webgem from a while back, not "Bob's Chili") or my "Dark Chili Burnished" Strands.

Hit the GMTO shell Bayfields with a Bick 4 treatment last night, and I couldn't be happier. These boots have served as my poor weather go-to this winter, and they've been exposed to rain, snow and ice on the reg (shout out to Kenny Powers). Here are some pics:

 

Before on the right, after on the left

 

Finished and ready to go back to work:

Sweet deal. There is a 9c navy Grayson brand new for 100$ BIN on the bay. If I had any sizing confidence I'd grab the, might have to go through the shoebank first.

I've been using VSC on all my shoes lately but after seeing this from AndyC, I'm thinking I need to give this Bick 4 a try.  Any pros/cons over VSC or the AE premium leather conditioner?

3 Shell acquisitions in a week. Sheesh. Granted one was just a trunk show delivery. And ones an Alden. But there should be some new truffle headed this way smile.gif

Doubt I can keep that pace up.

I have read back in this thread through 1/1/2015. I'm learning a lot here, and in fact discovered the concept of Shoebank, which I had never heard of before.

 

I have a few questions, but am not sure if they are best answered elsewhere, as I am sure they were already covered in one of the several thousand posts here. lol.

 

I am looking at Bourbon Mora 2.0 as my next purchase. 

 

When looking at shoebank, they are available in three or four locations.

 

Had I not read this forum, I would think I would do one of the following:

 

E-mail each of the locations given, and ask them what their best pair of Mora 2.0's looks like, or what the defect is. 

 

Then based on those responses, purchase said pair of shoes.

 

If they have an obvious flaw (I would want something only very minor, as I am a tad "particular"), return them via the same pre-paid shipping label that AE provides when I buy direct.

 

 

Do I understand the process correctly, or am I missing something? Anecdotally in my reading, I haven't seen that people are e-mailing multiple locations prior to ordering.

 

I'm wondering what I'm missing.

 

If there is another thread this should be addressed in, or another way to learn it, if one of the vets here can give me a heads-up, I'll comply happily.

 

Thanks in advance.

I wouldn't email the shoe bank, instead I would call for an immediate response. The process is I check the shoe bank website and if I see my size in stock at any of the locations, I call and order them via credit card.

If you are not happy with the shoe (if they are flawed) you can ship them back and pay a minor restocking fee of $10 I believe
