Those of you that have the Jefferson or any shoe with the Independence line shoe, would you say that the lining and footbed flatten over time? Picked up the brown Jefferson 0.5 size bigger, as they didn't have my size, and they are almost perfect, just a tiny bit loose.

Also, are they supposed to be burnished brown? I noticed some inconsistent dying around the eyelets, which I think will go away with polishing.

Overall, I am very impressed with the shoe, and seriously thinking about picking up the the walnut, as well.

Thanks guys. The pictures of the merlot polish show them a bit more purple than their hue in ample light. Those pics were taken in the shade, and their color versatility wasn't any different from the usual burgundy/oxblood/merlot color, but that's just my opinion - To me those colors are very similar to the point where I usually pair them with the same complimentary colors.

I'm definitely going to do xxx inspections at the store to make sure the firsts are indeed worthy of being called firsts.

if these are your first AE purchases, I would highly recommend you get an SA to ensure the shoes fit perfectly. Nothing worse (well many things can be worse...) than ending up with three ill-fitting pair or shoes, only to frustratingly sell semi-worn shoes at a significant lost. 

 

btw, your shoe choices are great.

I have 2 stores near me

 

Oakbrook, IL and Chicago, IL

 

I am indeed planning on going into the store to make sure fit is on point and I'll get the ability to inspect my goods prior to whippin out the credit card :)

I need the collective wisdom and style sense of the group to opine on these laces with black, walnut and chili shoes, all blucher shoes, no closed laces. What color of lace would you pair with each shoe? Which ones are quirky versus stylish versus just plain ugly. What comments have you received on your lace choices in the wild? Rspond with pictures of your shoe and lace combination will be most welcome. What say you?

I have that same box of laces and I use them all. Granted, it's mostly a Friday thing, but I match the laces to the shirt I'm wearing, the socks, etc. I figure have some fun. Unless you are in a really conservative environment - law firm, court room, etc., I say try them all.

Orange, lavender, and olive look great with walnut in my opinion. The blue looks great with my Rush Streets.

Here is one example of mine

So I've started wearing slim cut pants so that people can see my shoes better - haha!

 

:thumbs-up:

 

Switching to a slimmer cut is always a good idea.  Most guys wear clothes that are cut wrong for them.  Just MHO.

On the flip side, the trending super skinny look makes me want to throw up.

Agreed.  Saying "switching to a slimmer cut is always a good idea" is not exactly accurate.  Especially with some of the ridiculous fit pics I have seen on this site and on others with skin tight jeans and comparatively clownish shoes.

No worries about going skin tight pants on me.  Most of the people that do that are young adults (kids).  I'm a 43 year old man, I've outgrown all that nonsense.

Great looking shoes
post #61647 of 70737
Trying to upgrade my casual shoe lineup so picked up the Acorn Hillfire Neumoks yesterday from Nordstrom; next to my Olive Neumoks, I like the Acorn more. A good add, and quells my interest in the Rush Street. Color, contrast stitching and mild burnish on toe and heel look perfect for most of my jeans, cords and chinos... even some heavier wool slacks. Slipper feel, but some there are some inside stitches rubbing my bare feet. Loafer socks for a while ;-)

Just received  these from Shoebank..

This is my first dundee and I didn't like them at all  in calf leather, though I am sure they will be amazing in suede. Also for some reason leather on these is very thick and stiff compared to my other AEs...

 

Brooks Brother Oxblood Dundee

 

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Macneil 2.0 in Chilli.

These are really nice and definitely keeping them. Almost flawless atleast to me...

Macneil burgundy shell ( 10 D) vs Macneil 2.0 chilli (10.5D) - Fitwise, both are comfortable, may be because of shell vs calf difference and poron insole in macneil 2.0

Macneil shell are in serious need of some TLC..

 

post #61649 of 70737

Interesting how the MacNeil 2.0 pattern, since it's "lifted" on the shoe, makes it look more like the Alden LWB. Very nice change, IMO.

I'm no fan of super-skinny either.  I'm referring to cuts like Brooks Brothers' Fitzgerald and J. Crew's 1040 and 770, which I do think look good on a lot more guys than actually wear them.  BTW, I'm 46.
