PSA: There's a Brooks Brothers Dundee in oxblood calfskin at the shoebank for $114. I just ordered a pair. I'll post pics in a few days.

Well I just saw my favorite SA in Chicago, and ordered a 10 3E Kirkwood in Navy.  Should get it by the end of the week.  I also have a pair of Golden Brown Kirkwood's coming (site said within 6 weeks) in 10.5 3E.  So unless the Navy 10s fit perfectly, (then I'll adjust my original order) I will get a chance to try both sizes.

 

Just to folow up on this, I received both 10 3E and 10.5 3E in the kirkwood.  The 10 3EEE fit me much better.  A little tight, but it should loosen up.  The 10.5 3E was a  bit long and there was some definate heel slippage.

Did you see your size on the website? I don't see that is a model available on shoebank

Okay I'm a few weeks into my replacement pair of Park Avenues.  First ones lasted 3-4 months and the heels started to separate.  Now these are doing the same thing.  I'm pretty disappointed because my first AE's (PA & Strands) both had this issue.

 

Anyone had these types of issues?  AE customer service wants me to send back to redo the heels (I initially took these and my Strands I bought at same time back to the department store and they ordered new ones).

Anyone know if this can be corrected during the recrafting process?


I had a pair of burgundy shell MacNeil's that had a similar issue with misaligned eyelets - minor issue but bothered the hell out of me.  They were seconds, and I assumed that was the reason for them being seconds... Not sure if they can fix it during recraft, but might be worth asking in store or via email.

Looking for a belt to match Color #8 without shelling out $200+ for a Shell belt. These are my picks:

 

Wide Basic Merlot

Polar Merlot

Sheridian Oxblood

 

Which one will be the best match and or the best belt of those 3?

Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thank you, looks like they are available in a few sizes. Nothing in my size though. Definitely post pictures, I wonder if they have the combination tap sole and padded insole like other BB models.

That is some bad luck... I haven't had this issue, but i'd be pretty upset in your shoes (pun intended)  I'd have them re-do the sole or ask for ANOTHER replacement pair.  Maybe they can give you some sort of discount for your troubles?

Merlot works well enough for my AE Burgundy shell, but given the variation among shell colors (and belt colors, and lighting), you might be best off going to a store with the shoes and doing the ol' eye test.

My Black Hills are starting to do that. Not nearly bad as yours, but you can start to see spots where the heel is separating. This pair was a gift from the father-in-law, so I am not sure where they were purchased - though I know they are firsts, without 2nds or No Warranty stamps. I've wondered if AE would offer assistance or if this is a lost cause since I don't have receipt or record of purchase.

 

If I were you I would, at minimum, send them back for repair. They might thrown in a free re-craft, you never know. If this has happened multiple times, then maybe a replacement is a better recourse.

Thanks guys.  I don't have another pair of Black dress shoes in my rotation (yet... haha) so I called the dept store to get a replacement.  They are going to talk to the AE rep and have a craftsman do an add'l QC check on them before they ship to me.  Fingers crossed!

 

My 12.5 Strand replacements are being made now since they aren't stocked in that size.  Hopefully they do a better job this go round.

 

I just received a pair of merlot McAllisters from the Shoebank... if I have this issue on those I'm out of luck correct?  OR I'd have to pay to recraft/fix?

 

thanks everyone
