...thats actually a good question. It looks like the last was changed to the 201 last, but I'm not sure if they produced any shoes on the 65 last or not, seeing as the change was fairly recent.

Nope, called Wisconsin and just asked if they had any bags in stock.

Help please before I go broke...I just discovered AE shoes--I walked into their store a week ago and was blown away (I've never bought a high quality dress shoe).  And in one week I've already just ordered my third pair.

 

Walnut Strands, Strandmok Suedes, and Gobi in Tan Saddle.  The latter I'm hoping I made a good choice over the snuff suede and navy, it was a hard choice.  I love suede, but Tan Saddle seemed like it would work with more outfits.

 

Since discovering great shoes, how the hell did you stop the addiction?

As for Daltons, I have the Bourbon and really like them.  I would get those or one of the "red" tones - merlot, oxblood, dark chili etc.

 

Do bags and briefcases normally go on sale at the outlets?  I only ask because the Park Ave Slim looks like a killer deal, but I really want the Park Ave Flap Briefcase.  Just curious if it might go on sale again later.  I doubt I'll ever make it to an outlet store to see these beauties in person.

Sorry man, she would divorce me.  I am already in trouble for grabbing some Patriots.  She did say I could get the park ave slim briefcase, but that was the end of my fathers day shopping spree.

There's no cure, maybe amputation may do the trick.

Definitely stay away from this thread, these sale come up very often and can be tempting.


All seriousness, just make sure you cover the basics, realize what you need vs want. Many of us, me included, get carried away and get more shoes than we can wear in a life time. At the end of the day, they are just shoes. If you have other priorities in your life, make sure you take care of them first.

Hard to tell much from the listing. The catalog number is different than the others and no picture or description.

I haven't been keeping up on the latest AE shoes, but when I was in a store the other day, I saw some that I don't think I've seen before.

 

My favourite AE shoe (and the one that gets the most wear) are my Chili Delrays. I work in a business-casual environment, and I find they are very versatile. They work with dress pants and a button-down shirt, or jeans and a polo shirt on casual Fridays. I can even get by wearing them with a mid-grey suit (although I typically wear different shoes with a suit). I really would like to get another pair of AE one of these days, but would want something equally versatile (and not too dressy). Part of me thinks that maybe I should just get another pair of Delrays in a different colour. Any opinions?

Chili Delrays were my first pair of AEs and still the ones I reach for most often. I've bought several AEs since then and nothing has proven quite so versatile. The closest might be my Bleecker Streets (in Bob's Chili). Let us know what you come up with!

I have heard some be critical of buying the same shoe in two different colors. Reading this forum, however, would certainly argue otherwise. There was a SF member a few pages back in this same thread who had 6 pairs of boots and was buying his seventh pair, all in some shade of brown! From a practical perspective, some people, like me, are hard to fit and we tend to purchase several colors of the same shoe. I would say that unless there is pressing reason NOT to have the a second color, it is perfectly fine, despite what some others might say.
