I think most would be hard pressed to tell the difference IRL. I think oxblood looks the most like crup in my own pictures. See below. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Haha! Yeah it's an illicit covert activity for sure. My neighbor's in south Brooklyn probably think I'm a putz every morning.


Central Brooklyn here, and yeah...tempted as I have been to hit my front steps for my own pic, I waited till' I got to the subway for my snap. My neighbors are nosy, gossipy types and I've already got enough problems with 'em. Thus the subway Shakers shot, along with the fun little “Harris Tweed” lace tag they came with. LOL. Next week I think I'll do a proper debut of the Shakers with the matching Vintage Harris Tweed sportcoat (1940's) I'm having refreshed.

Those are without a doubt the ugliest pair of shoes I've ever seen.

The tan tassels ruin the effort in my opinion. Were they a bright yellow, I would be more prone to at least give the would be artisan some credit.

Makes me think of the Joker from Batman.

Wearing my recent eBay purchase today.  They have no style name in them, so, since @polojock615 identified the saddle part as being shark, I have decided to call them "Surfer Eaters".......

You guys think its normal for an AE suede boot to have stitching like this?

I'd just snip the end off that and then melt a little neutral wax polish over it.

Very normal....
Just take a match or lighter and burn the excess thread down to being even with the welt. Be careful to not touch the suede to the flame.

I also was wondering about the stitching.

Badlands - close up, on the interior near the arch



Badlands - zoomed out a bit



Park Avenue - interior, near the arch/heel



Park Avenue - zoomed out



The Le Marche I ordered has similar stitching to the Badlands, where it looks like it kind of cut into the shoe.

All very normal, it is just where the two ends of the 360 welt are stitched together.

Pictures of my walnut Dalton's (on right) next to my new Alfred Sargent for J Crew boots in Mahogany.  I bought the AS boots on ebay (NWOB) for $200 shipped which I though was a bargain, considering they are in near flawless condition.  I'm considering returning the Dalton's since they're similar in style to the AS boots. Plus now I'm feeling a bit of buyer's remorse having splurged in the last 12 months on 6 AE factory seconds, of which I haven't even worn three yet including the Dalton's. 

 

For what it's worth, the quality of the leather seems better on the Dalton (I believe the AS for J crew line is below the AS Exclusive line, and no where near the handgrade line). The Dalton's are also sleeker and probably a little more stylish. However to my untrained eye the AS seems to have superior craftsmanship and much better attention to detail.

^^^ this. Some companies (Carmina, CJ, eye) do a better job of finishing over the welt joint, but this is normal for AE (and Alden)

Yeah, AS is a great English brand, several notches above AE in quality. Too bad the company is rather in disarray.
