I am in the same boat... I love my brown shell Strands, but don't wear them too often either.  For whatever reason, they appear more "dressy" to me than my wingtips or PTBs so I don't pair them with chinos (which is what I wear at work mainly).  I am trying to mix in more dress pants at work so maybe that'll change :)

After saying that yesterday I felt guilty so threw them on today. I am the same in that I am trying to add more trousers to my wardrobe so hopefully they will hit the rotation more often.

@BurzanI'm envious. Shame on you for not wearing those beauties more often :p

Assuming the walnut shell Strands are in good condition with minimal flaws, $297 is a steal! 

+1

The outlet SAs have been really helpful in describing shoe/boot conditions to me. It's frustrating when they refuse to sell something but definitely beats anticipating the delivery all week only to find out you can't wear them and have to deal with a return.

Whoever snags those walnut shells must post pics here!

Caramel bucs today. I think these are called 'Orleans'.

I've owned the Strands and the Truffle Mcallisters for over a year now and worn the Stands around 10 times and the McAllister maybe 5. I also have a pair of walnut calf McAllisters that have been worn a couple of times in the last year. Sadly balmorals just don't work that well for my wardrobe but I am working on it because I love all three pairs and the 5 last works great for me. The walnut calf McAllister was my first pair of AE or I would probably part with it at this point.

How long does it normally take people to receive 2nds shipped from Port Wash? I placed an order on the 13th and got confirmation they shipped on the 14th (with no tracking number). Enquired about the tracking on the 15th and was told something screwy about transitioning from one system to another, and I'm still waiting. No one seems to be able to tell me if they shipped, if there's a tracking #, and generally it seems like a complete clusterf***. Is it normally this way?

They're probably really busy handing all the returns and exchanges from the tent sale. That location in particular got a ton more business than their systems were designed to handle efficiently. If it makes you feel any better they still haven't processed an exchange of 2nds I sent there that they've had for a bit over two weeks now. Even the firsts I order are taking about a week or so before they ship out.

 

FedEx usually takes about a week to get to the West Coast from Port Washington. I wouldn't get too worried about it if I were you.

Sorry, my walnut wednesday streak came to an end today... Burnished chili Bleecker Streets today. Same size as 95% of my other AE shoes. Have a little bit of puckering below the laces on both shoes (visible on the right shoe in pics below), but can't complain at all. I'm really happy my favorite SA (Can't say enough good things about Earl at Alabama Leeds store) talked me out of brown and bourbon colors and into these chilis. LOVED the color so much I had to pick up a few more options (Franciscan, Rogue, Carlyle will do for now).

Great minds think alike. I have the same issue, doesn't bother me that much

Anyone ever attempted to darken some brown Neumoks? I'm thinking about some light tan polish to mine

Grey Banchory today in the office.

Normally wear them with shorts in lieu of sneakers on weekends.

My father has a pair and loves them. His most worn pair. If you have a higher instep they're perfect.

If they were 1/2 size bigger I would buy them in a heartbeat at that price. Even if they have flaws, you can almost always get them out of shell.

- Snuff suede Gobi and football grain Odenwald for $97. Goodyear welted boots for less than $100!

- Rutledge in walnut for $227. That's over $100 less than they were last time I looked.

- Portland in bourbon for $127. Oops, that's all gone biggrin.gif

- "Misc" in black for $145. Would love to know what that is!

- First Ave in walnut for $339. May not be the best price but rare (I think)

First Ave will have a full size and color run this fall. That's not a terribly good price.

I've been in loafers for the last few months but yesterday, decided to give the Player's some love. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Love the Players. Only selling my pair because it's one width too wide for me and I have very similar tan calf wingtips from Alden that fit better.
