I have several belts from Shoebank.  They've all been very acceptable - most have no distinguishable flaw.  I even picked up a cordovan tab belt from them.  These are the best prices I've ever seen on the belts.  I just picked up 2 more!

I did find out today that the Patriot shouldn't be going anywhere. You can sleep easy now.

That is great news.  I was just perusing the Shoebank sale and IMO, the Patriots at $127 are the deal of the century!  (Daltons are a close second).  The Patriots are fabulous loafers.

Thanks old buddy.

 

There should be an MTO - dark navy suede patriot, "The Kyle"

So you tell me you're interested in "classic menswear." You have three pairs of MTO boots to wear to the mall and shell boat shoes to wear mowing the yard. Somehow, though, you are limping through life without a dark wingtip. How can this be?

There is something called a Shoebank and it is having a tent sale. It includes Jeffrsons at an insane price.

You are now officially out of excuses. Make the call.

Club Monaco beat me to it! I'll take the compliment though :)

Wife just gave me her card and told me to "get what I want" for Father's Day. She meant the color of Maritimes...

Found one in my size, too. Is it still made on the 65 last?

Hey everybody,

 

Quick question for you AE guys.

 

I have the Park Avenues but want to order the Graysons online since there are none in my area.  I was just wondering how they would compare in fit, given that they are from a different last.  Was wondering if you think I need to order the Graysons in a different size/width or just order the same size.

 

Thanks in advance everybody

Based on people's descriptions of the Allen Edmonds customer service, I bought a pair of Park Avenues a couple weeks back.  I noticed that there were some very subtle lines in the leather on one of shoes...a bit like creases, but not exactly.  As I had never seen anything quite like that and didn't think I had done it to them, I started to think they were defects.  I debated whether or not I should return them, as they generally were making me happy.

 

Ultimately, I decided to bring them back to the Allen Edmonds shop here in Philadelphia where I bought them to see what they said.  If I heard it right, they said they were veins, but I'm not sure, as they didn't look like veins, in my common understanding.  Anyway, they said they certainly would exchange them for a new pair.  They didn't have exactly my size in the standard black PA, but they had a pair with the extra rubber soul.  I almost went with that, but then asked if they were going to take back the old pair, could I upgrade to shell cordovan, if I were to pay the difference.  They said sure, but they stock only very limited sizes.  Fortunately, they had a pair of brown shell cordovan that fit me, so I got them.

 

I have to say the service really was wonderful.  I must also say that people need to stay away from shell cordovan because it's strongly addictive.

 

Regards,

Jon

hey everybody, so I wear the Park Avenues regularly and I want to order the Graysons as my second pair.  I was wondering if anybody has any insight on how I should order the Graysons.  given that they're from a different last, does anybody know if I should go with a different size/width, or just order the same size I wear in the Park Aves?  unfortunately, I dont live near any AE stores or I could try them on.  any insight would be appreciated.

 

thanks a lot everybody

Jon, glad to hear that you had some good customer service. Yes, be careful, Shell Cordovan can be very addictive.
