I wouldn't mind seeing them incorporate magnets in the sole for easier switching of the veneer for future offerings. :smarmy:

I need magnets on the toes for easy steel toe tap installation

How about interchangeable broguings so we could switch between wingtips to cap-toes. :thumbs-up:

I think we're on to something. Would one of you mind going to Paul with our ideas? Feel free to take credit for yourself.

I had an idea for how to do this, so I googled it.

That was a mistake.

Do you think these are 360° Goodyear Welted? 

 

Also, maybe AE should take a page from these guys for their next SWB.

Recent comments about AE at Burlington made me stop by to see what i could see... And ran across these suede Macneils - $139. Should I kop or release back into the wild?

Edit: or would a sand suede chukka or LWB from Frye ($84 or $79, respectively) be more versatile? I have nothing in sand suede BTW...

Huh? What do you mean? Where is the wood?

I prefer the snuff suede MacNeil's over the sand suede options from the pictures... but maybe it's the lighting.

 

Is this a more accurate color in person?  Which if that's the case, all seem like decent options for a cheaper casual option.  I still prefer the MacNeil to the Frye LWB due to the medallion detail (not too familiar with Frye's quality)

I'm in the market for my first proper pair of shoes. AE right now has a sale on its website. Its McAllister Wingtip Oxfords are usually $385 but are now selling at $280 for example. Is this a major discount or does AE routinely have sales like this? I'm not in a particular rush as the job I work in now is casual so I can always hold out for a better deal. I'm just trying to figure out whether this is a particularly good deal I should jump at.
