Such beautiful boots. I have a pair on the way and am extremely excited.

Haha! Now I know! (from the boot thread)

Re quality I agree with you wholeheartedly. Another good example is the pair of Loake chukkas i got for less than $275. Top line 1880 model calf with dainite sole. Absolutely flawless and very well made. If Ae made them theyd probably start at $400. I wish we would see better quality overall with AE

Robin and the New Orleans crew are awesome. Tammy, Gerald and Romi usually joke around with me when I'm there. I should've picked up some more AEs during the Nordstrom sale. Kicking myself for it. Wish I would've picked some oxblood.

Those look great. Have they been discontinued for awhile?

Seeking opinions. How do you guys feel about the larchmont? Not sure why, but the name doesn't sound appealing. That's not a big deal, just wanted to mention it. I see most get the Macniel

Keeping in mind I could never justify them at full retail, I was able to get mine as seconds for $127 in the winter of 2013 during their first unsuccessful run.








Although I said I wasn't a fan of that EC makeup, I would have bought them for $127!

I like it, and I agree the name makes me think of Lurch.

This is yet another instance where I feel that AE's stock photos did little justice to the shoe. 

These are super comfy workhorses for sure. The "tread" is much less aggressive and doesn't have nearly the contrast of the stock photos. I added some lighter flat laces to casual things up a little more and hit them with some leather lotion/conditioner. Other than that, I envision these getting very little in the care department... 

Wow, they don't even look like Black Hills in the first pic! I'll admit I haven't done much with mine either. Guys at the store recommended saddle soap for 'em. I've only used it twice so far.

Even pepper's Bradley's are looking good. I must be going through shoe buying withdrawals or something.

I agree that AE is missing the boat on their product photography. They should be licensing many of the images found here in this very thread.

Well, I just got my answer. The warwicks run HUGE. Long and wide. I wear a 9.5E in the 108 and my foot was swimming in the same size warwicks. I'd need either a 9.5D or possibly a 9.0E.

I also noticed that the insoles had absolutely no text- has anyone ever seen this? They were advertised as "new with defects" on ebay, so I assume same same as factory seconds. But all of my secones always had the standard allen edmonds and model name stamped on the insole.

In a good or bad way? How do you size them, @RichieP? The SA at my store recommended I go down a half size from my usual 5 last. (I'm glad I didn't, as I have thought a time or two that they are barely long enough as is.) I actually bought them thinking they would be great to recraft in a natural welt. Changed my mind as soon as I unboxed them.

I'm about to buy a pair of Fifth Avenues and could use some advice on whether to get them in bourbon or brown burnished. They'll be primarily worn with slacks and a button up (biz casual, with a strong tilt more towards the biz side of the spectrum), though I might occasionally pair them with a charcoal or navy suit (not very often, though).

I keep going back and forth on whether the brown burnished is too dark or whether the bourbon is a touch too light. My other shoes as of now are black Park Avenues and walnut Strands.

So what do you think? Burnished brown or bourbon? Thanks for any thoughts!

I say go bourbon. Can always darken with polish. Brown would be hard to lighten if it's too dark.

For the record, at the Burlington Coat Factory Stores here in NYC, i'm still running across batches of odd, sometimes discontinued or “special make” AEs—particularly at the 6th Avenue & 22nd Street and Union Square/14th Street Stores. Saw an absolutely awesome pair butter-colored suede 12 3E Sanibel loafers—immaculate, not a scuff on 'em for $99.00 and without the telltale “Seconds” marking on the sole at Union Square. There were about seven pairs of Chili Maxfield Loafers at the 6th Avenue Store, albeit in a B width and in the size range of 9 1/2 through 14.

 

These badasses though were at the Union Square Store...

 

 

 

This gorgeous pair of Black Bradley Split-Toe Bluchers in 11 1/2 B. For the whopping price of $139.00 (!) Damned immaculate. No “Seconds” marking. No stitch-drift on the sole bottom or any blemishes whatsoever. I tucked 'em on the bottom right of the 11 1/2 shelf there.

 

Go get 'em, fellas!

New old stock that I picked up last summer at a retailer in NJ. Walnut shell is unavailable. hopefully they bring it back, it's a nice hybrid of Alden Whiskey/Ravello or Carmina Saddle/Cognac.
