Very nice. I love the brown to tan contrast on those. Haven't seen those before

Here's the nice pair of Strands I got for pretty much a steal off ebay a few days ago. He said he only wore them like 3 times and it definitely looks that way. I got lucky with this one. And like you said that's how it starts with AEs. They're a weird shoe when you may not feel they're all that flashy at first then you get a pair then boom you're hooked. It's similar with some other shoes I have as well. Maybe just cause I'm a shoe junky.

Thanks! Just a little black ae polish on the wingtip and around the brogue tracks smile.gif a rag helps to wipe off the polish on the vamp and create that extra contrast.

A little homemade Bourbon effect.  I like it.

Nice shining technique. I find using the neutral colored wax on the lighter browns best since it really just shines it and not just darken the leather. I always use an old hanker chief for the first buff then a light buff next with a shine cloth to really touch it up. Some people use cotton balls but I don't because it just sticks into the brogue detailing so I always have to pick it off

I got this new itch for a SWB, but just noticed AE doesn't offer any (other than the LGA in new comfort line). That's very surprising to me, though I am sure AE used to offer that earlier..

Coincidentally, there are 2 333 last shoes on my radar - Harrison and Franciscan.  As mentioned, I'm in the clothing biz, so I have a fair latitude what constitutes a "suitable" black cap toe :).  And black PA's are so boring they would prolly put me to sleep.

 

So, if I am say between  8.5 D/E in 65-last/108 last, comfy 8.5 D in 511, what would you advise for 333 last?


Black PA's are boring like the navy suit with a white shirt, blue tie, white pocket square combo.  Black PA's are boring like a good whiskey neat.  Sometimes boring is really a synonym for straight up class.

I own the black hills as well, and they are very comfortable.  Great shoe.  I'm hoping the San Marcos stretch a bit because I really love them.  My right foot is slightly wider than my left, so I have some toe pinching in the right foot only, otherwise comfortable shoes as well.
