Just to clarify, my request was to go from flat to storm. I'm wishing I had sent this pair to you. I had an AE gift card and was anxious to get this pair resoled. Ah well, at least I know what AE's limitations are now. Next time!

You can go from flat to reverse, but not the other way.

They called the factory and were advised the sole and color changes are fine but the welt needs to remain flat. I'm guessing welt changes were nixed along with the MTO program but if anyone has had this done recently, I'd love to hear from you!



I am not always sure of the rules as sometimes different reps give different information.  The rules may have changed, but I'd prefer to hear that from the factory rather than a store sales rep.

Dark Chili Burnished Strand, Merlot McAllister, Burgundy Shell Franciscan, Sauk Drive, Red Neumok. I don't have anything in Oxblood, but it shouldn't be too hard to interpolate. Lighting sucks, but it's about as good as I can do at the moment.

Thanks man. This particular pair is JCrew selvedge in 1040 fit. They're perfect for my larger upper legs and smaller lower legs. i also have a few pairs in the old JCrew slim straight which is similar to this, and their Wallace and Barnes low-rise dark rinse, which doesn't work as well for me.

I also have two pairs of Gustin in the classic fit, which don't work too well for me either, as the thighs are a little too tight and the rise is too low. To get a pair with decent upper leg room, I would have to go up to 37, which would be like 3 inches too big for my waist.

I'm still new to the denim game. My previous job required suits and OJC fits, and I was told last year by my current boss that I was overdressing just wearing wool trousers, lol....

Ok, so celebrating the REAL Walnut Wednesday with what AE briefly called "Dark Walnut Cordovan" (otherwise known to the rest of us as simply "brown")

@peppercorn78

Your work is very casual? Jeans everyday?

Jeans or chinos. But I'm only in that office (school) three days per week. I'm home the rest of the week.

Btw I'm liking the wing pattern on the Sauk Drive. Much less "coneheadish" than Dalton/Long Branch.

Word. I can work from home myself, I was home yesterday but it gets boring at times. I think I"ll do 3 days office 2 days home when the weather really gets cold. When I'm home I'm in home clothes so my nice attire doesn't get worn.

I'm moving away from dressy collared shirts to button down since there is no need for them
